Andri was also wearing a pink cap with the white RF logo. He said that the Roger Federer cap in pink looks very cool. Meanwhile, Roger Federer shared, talking about the caps, "After a long wait and extensive fine-tuning, UNIQLO and I are extremely excited to announce the return of the RF hat in 8 fresh colors starting from December 8, 2020" According to Uniqlo, the caps are going to be available only in certain select countries and online markets.
According to Twitter users who were wanting to buy the caps, in some outlets, the caps' stocks were sold out quickly. This was the first time since Federer and Nike's contract ended in 2018 that the RF logo returned to the Swiss.
On Twitter, Uniqlo posted about the caps being available from 8th December and asked fans to show their support with a special hashtag. Federer posted a small video announcing the caps' launch on his social media accounts.
"Roger Federer got his logo back and we’re celebrating with a line of RF Caps. 8 unique colorways at a price every fan will appreciate. Will become available on December 8. Tweet your excitement for this news with #RFcapisback," Uniqlo posted.
In 2020, Roger Federer played only one tournament: the Australian Open. He reached the semi-finals in Melbourne (lost to Novak Djokovic) before ending his season after having two surgeries on his right meniscus. He finished the year ranked 5th in the world.
Although the 20-time Slam champion has said he will be back in 2021, his schedule hasn't been released yet. In February 2020, Federer and Nadal also traveled to South Africa to play the charitable event Match for Africa 6.
Billionaire and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and television personality Trevor Noah also teamed up with Federer and Nadal respectively for the doubles exhibition match.
