Roger Federer’s Clothing
For over twenty years Roger Federer’s clothing was sponsored by Nike but in 2018 he switched to Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo in a deal thought to be worth $300 million.
Federer has always had a very classic look, favouring crisp whites and clean lines. He frequently sports a bandanna headband to keep his hair out of his eyes.
When Federer was sponsored by Nike together they developed the “RF” logo which was emblazoned on his kit, however this design was owned by Nike and so at least initially he will no longer be able to use the “RF” logo on his Uniqlo range, although it is hoped that over time the rights will revert to him.
Roger Federer was recently named GQ’s most stylish man of the decade, reflecting his sartorial importance both on and off the court.
Roger Federer’s Shoes
Roger Federer was sponsored by and wore Nike shoes for most of his tennis career.
In 2020 Roger Federer signed a deal with up-and-coming Swiss footwear brand On. Roger will not only wear the shoes but will also help with design and work as a brand ambassador.
His first collaboration with On the “Roger Centre Court” were released in 2020 and quickly sold out.
Roger wore Nike shoes for the majority of his playing career, winning numerous tournaments in them.
He favoured the Nike Air Zoom Vapor X which are also a popular choice with other top players including Petra Kvitova, Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios.
Nike Air Zoom Vapor X shoes are known for being especially light ensuring players can stay quick on their feet and responsive to the ball.
Roger Federer’s Racket
Like many top players Roger Federer uses a Wilson tennis racket, more specifically the Wilson Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph.
Originally Roger used the Wilson Pro Staff 90 which is a 90 inch racket but during 2013 when he was plagued by injury and poor form he looked to see if a different racket could improve his game.
Together with Wilson he developed the Wilson Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph or RF97A for short! This racket is more powerful and has a larger head.
Here are a selection of rackets similar to those used by Roger Federer himself:
Roger Federer’s Accessories
One of Roger Federer’s key looks is his bandanna headband. When he was sponsored by Nike it always carried the Nike swoosh but today he wears one with the Uniqlo logo.
Here are some headbands like Roger’s:
Roger Federer has been a Rolex brand ambassador for many years.
Roger’s favourite Rolex is said to be the Rolex Datejust II as this was the watch his was wearing when he beat Andy Roddick in the 2009 Wimbledon final and broke Pete Sampras’ record number of Grand Slam wins.
Rolex’s like Roger’s cost upwards of $8,000 so – assuming you don’t have a Grand Slam winner’s budget – here are some similar but more affordable watches in Roger’s style:
