Tennis ace Roger Federer is one of the most supreme athletes in the sporting world. Over the years, he has created a unique and humble identity for himself that has touched the hearts of millions of fans around the world. For several years he has led the way when it comes to off-court earnings.
Recently, one of his sponsors, UNIQLO, the Japanese apparel brand that Roger Federer has been sporting since the 2018 season, unveiled the latest 'RF Caps', specially designed for the 2021 Wimbledon Championship. The cap has been designed keeping the traditional white and green colors of Wimbledon in mind.
Uniqlo and Federer have signed a long-term agreement and it is one of the biggest endorsement deals in the recent past. At the end of last year, the Swiss star reacquired its 'RF' logo. According to the legalities, Nike still had the rights.
However, things have returned to their place and since the 'RF Caps' hit the markets, they were sold out in no time. UNIQLO has designed a subtle cap for Roger Federer Going back to the recently launched cap, it is white, with the 'RF' logo shone in green in the center.
In another variation, the cap is green and the logo is printed in white. Reflecting on tennis, the Swiss master returned to action after nearly 14 months in Doha in March. After that, he participated in the clay court event in Geneva because he wanted to play at Roland Garros.
In Paris, he reached the fourth round of the 2021 French Open but did not show up for his match. He felt the tension of playing long and tedious matches after returning to action at the highest level. That a 39-year-old player returns after two knee surgeries will take its toll.
Therefore, he made the difficult decision to withdraw midway. Finished in the stylish beige x green colourways, our Roger Federer caps add a touch of sophistication to any look on and off the court.
Murray speaks about Roger Federer
Andy Murray said coming up against a player of Auger-Aliassime's caliber was never going to be easy for Roger Federer, given the Canadian's hard-hitting style of play.
"Felix is another guy that has a huge serve and goes for his shots. You know, you’re kind of wanting to get into a bit of a rhythm and it’s not happening, so it can be hard," Murray said. But the former World No.
1 believes Roger Federer will iron out the kinks in his game heading into Wimbledon. "I understand why it would be frustrating for Federer, but I’m sure he will work it out," Murray added. ‘It’s different playing at Slams.
It’s not the same as competing at the other tournaments, and certainly I don’t think for the other players, like stepping on court with somebody like him at Wimbledon will be different. Yeah, I think he’ll figure stuff out."
