FASHION FIX: Is Federer's Nike fashion fit for the girls?

Some tennis fans are starting to think that Nike is making a girlie-man out of the world no. 1.

Back in April, an astute DtL! reader wondered why Nike was putting the always fashionable Roger Federer in women's trends this season. Well it seems like the global sports brand is at it again this fortnight and some fans aren't happy.

Reader barcelona2012 had this to say about Fed's French Open fashion,

...the white on the sleeves is so girlish. I think it's just the angle, but that photo on the left makes it look like it's a puckered, cap sleeve type shirt.
An anonymous commenter took it another step further saying,
i just emailed to ask why they are making Rog look like a girl. I don't even like the dated white collar and cuffs look on girls. a million UGHS.
Is this a Nike coincidence or conspiracy? Do tell!

  1. are you guys serious? i think he looks fantastic. classic, simple, striking against the red clay. always impeccable.

  2. I don't think he looks feminine at all. I do find the navy boring, though. I'd rather see him in light blue.

  3. he looks awesome

  4. Lucie Safarova could be his twin. They had almost matching outfits lol

  5. he looks absolutely superb! i think the outfit is fabulous!
