Roger Federer will wear a full red outfit at this year's US Open from 27 August to 9 September 2018. It will be just the second Grand Slam title that the 37-year-old Swiss plays wearing Uniqlo, and he will wear a red bandana, as well as shirt and shorts.
Federer is supposed to keep wearing Nike shoes, as he hasn't reached a deal with the American brand or any other shoe producer (Uniqlo is excluded) yet. Like always, the pre-Major week will be a busy one for the world No.
2 who will attend a Uniqlo event on Wednesday August 22 from 5:00 to 5:30 PM at the Uniqlo 5th Ave Store in New York. Some fans can get a very nice surprise, as the the first 150 customers in line at UNIQLO 5th AVE at 10AM ET on August 22 will get a ticket to attend the event with Roger later, at 5:00 PM.
Through Facebook, the Japanese brand, presenting the initiative, wrote: '20 grand slam wins. Two Olympic medals. Six ATP World Tour Finals titles. 29 Guinness World Records. The number one tennis player in the world for 310 straight weeks.
UNIQLO proudly acknowledges Roger Federer’s many career achievements, but as our new Global Brand Ambassador, we believe his best is yet to come.' Federer will also hold a Q&A session answering the questions submitted by fans online until yesterday, Sunday.
Federer will seek his sixth title at New York's Flushing Meadows, he last triumphed there in 2008 beating Andy Murray in the final. 2009 final loss to Juan Martin del Potro ended Roger's five consecutive titles streak.
