To celebrate the greatness of Roger Federer, Uniqlo has made available a new collection of the RF Cap, which enhances the elegant style of the Swiss. The famous RF brand hat also features a symbolic inscription: RForever.
Federer told his sponsor's official website: "The RF hat has been a special part of my tennis career and has allowed me to connect with my amazing fans. I feel grateful for all of the love and support. I hope that people can enjoy this new commemorative edition." The Swiss congratulated Novak Djokovic for his success in Melbourne.
The Serbian won the Australian Open for the tenth time in his career and reached 22 Grand Slams. On Twitter he wrote: "An incredible success, once again. Congratulations." Djokovic, during his Australian journey, talked about Federer and invited the public to pay him the right tribute: "Let's give Roger Federer a big round of applause, he deserves it.
I've had great battles against Roger over the years. Obviously Federer is missing from tennis. I saw him dressed very elegantly at Fashion Week. I want to challenge him on the ski slope. He's enjoying life, it's good to see him again considering he was one of my biggest rivals on the tennis court.
So I send my best regards to him and his family."
The world of tennis has never stopped thinking about Roger Federer. The Swiss champion decided to end his sporting career last year at the Laver Cup by playing one last doubles match with his historic rival Rafael Nadal.
At the end of the match, the Swiss showed all his emotions and let himself go into a liberating cry. The two failed to win against Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe, but gave the crowd one of the most beautiful images ever seen in the history of sport.
The Swiss and the Spanish cried together, they held hands with the strength and sadness that distinguishes great men.
