In his tweet, Gordon Reid thanked Roger Federer and UNIQLO for the gift. In his gift, there were two RF caps in two colors. He remarked by saying, "Blue and white is my favourite" The new RF hats came into the market on December 8, 2020.
Well, maybe the date was chosen because 8 is Roger Federer's favorite number and also his date of birth (8th August, 1981). Federer fans all around the world were waiting for this day, this was the reason that it quickly went out of stock the first day it hit the market in the countries where it was launched.
However, Gordon Reid has got his ones in blue and white color. Gordon Reid was more than just happy for the gift he received from UNIQLO and Roger Federer. Thus, tweeted for his fans to share his joy with them. Reid is also among the many who received the RF caps. Recently Swiss skier Andri Raglettli also received a similar gift.
