Roger Federer’s Outfit for the Australian Open 2014

I'm a little late in posting this but here's Federer's outfit for the Australian Open 2014 and also the one he's wearing now in Brisbane. Looks pretty good I think, not a huge fan of the cream type colour of the one he's currently wearing in Brisbane as it reminds me of the One Day Cricket shirt worn by New Zealand in the 1980's but the darker colour is good.

Again Nike choose the classic polo style which I think are much better than crew neck. It has bonded seams, ventilation holes to keep cool and of course the RF logo. Some of you have commented it's an exact copy of something Nadal wore at last year's French Open. Sign of the times? Nike cutting corners to save costs πŸ˜›

As for the shoes I'm not overly keen on but they are ok and the jacket is nice enough. There is also a Birch / Grey Polo I've seen pictured but I'm not sure where that will be worn. No doubt there will be some more shorts and trainers still to come so I will update this post when I find them.

What do you guys think? Are Nike back on track after a sub standard 2013? Should they employ Alysha Wintour as Head of Tennis Clothing?

Huge fan of Roger Federer. I watch all his matches from Grand Slam level right down to ATP 250. When I'm not watching or tweeting about tennis I play regularly myself and use this blog to share my thoughts on Federer and tennis in general.

  1. I think we have the same taste in outfit, Jonathan, not a huge fan of the shoes though welcome the classic polo.
    Hope Fed’s match starts soon…

  2. Not gonna complain about the colour cus the good old traditional button-up, plain-colour polos are always classy as it is for Roger! No more zipper polo (and it was pink too!) or crew necks for Roger please… At least not at the SLAMS!

  3. Roger looks good whatever he is wearing but I loved the red he wore for RG 2011. Generally, Rog looks his best in colours that stand out. This is a bit low-key for my taste.

    1. I think opposite really, he looks best in fairly neutral colours or when it’s just one colour with 1 or 2 accent colours. FO 2011 is just all red with some white, worked perfectly.

  4. At least its a polo, and he wears it better than Nadal. If people don’t know what I’m talking about, check this pic – pic.twitter.com/8ZKiobyH23

  5. Hey guys, Roger and Mahut just lost the doubles. Beaten by two guys I think most of us never even heard of….
    What kind of a tour lets someone play their second match in less than an hour than their first?? Should there not be atleast 3 or 4 between them?? But kudos to Roger. He may have been tired, but he did not give up or cancel the match… So…. focussing on Roger vs Hewitt….

    1. Nah, that’s always how it goes Katyani. In smaller tournaments they don’t have the possibility to mess around with the schedule. He knew he was potentially signing up for this when he decided the dubs. Also, be thankful he didn’t play his doubles first πŸ˜‰

      Onto hewitt! πŸ˜€

  6. Better than last year’s AO gear. Red jacket looks good and shoes are not bad either. Roger has quite a nice model physique which makes good most of nike gear he wears. Only minor blip is 2013, most of his gear are painful to watch – vomit colors, zebra stripes and orange #facepalrm

    1. I thought the stripes were fine, until we got some closeups and I got the chicken-mesh effect with the additional diamond pattern. Just a bit too much …

  7. The polo has a casual air about it, and the shoes are really fun, so is the jacket, very stylish. The Brisbane outfit does indeed remind me of Nadal’s Rome outfit last year (similar bandana, shirt colour, shorts…).
    Hey guess what, I think for the US open he’ll turn back into Darth Vader!

      1. Saw it via Tennis street yesterday on Facebook, hard to have any real impression but seems cool. No idea if it’s confirmed or not… I’d expect it to be

      2. Yeah Tennis Street on Facebook has a few pics of Fed’s outfits for the slams. His Roland Garros one is a NON polo! And the sleeves looked too contrasted!

  8. I kind of like this outfit actually; I just wish they had picked up the red as the trim color on the polo. Not for the swoosh, just for the collar & cuff trim. At first I thought the shorts looking like suit pants was just dumb, but it’s grown on me. I still think all of today’s shorts are way too long & floppy, but then I started watching in the 1970s when they were SUPER-short!

  9. Well, at least this year it isn’t all pinky and flashy. I’m wondering what he will wear on night sessions, because he always wears something different.

    As for the shoes, the vapor zoom 9.5 has a slighty different side. I’m not a big fan of the greeny-thing colour, it reminds me to much of the 2010 french open ones.

    Overall it looks good, but not as classy as a 2011 or under one.

  10. I saw online a light blue Polo was in the mix, guess that was scrapped. Was hoping his AO outfit would be different to Brisbane because it’s a slam but can’t complain, much better than some of the garbage kits Nike came up with last year.

  11. Overall it was ok. The cream color rarely can be pulled off on anyone. Nike should have used white instead, because, of the white on shoes. I liked the polo shirt. So much better than what he wore in Paris and London. No player should wear all black in any match. At the USO in NY in August, the heat with black would be dreadful. I haven’t seen it so hopefully black would be only the trim.

    1. I think Roger only pulls Darth Federer at the US Open and also for night matches so the heat is not as extreme as it would be in the day time/New York temperatures don’t reach what it does here in Aus in summer. I’ve heard rumours though that he is going all black again this year in August.

  12. Ridiculous, pathetic start from Federer, I even thought he was going to quit. At least he lost decently, and no, we can’t expect anything in Australian Open, as Federer showed signs of being phisically tired too early in the season… maybe he got overtrained
    Sad ):

  13. Hi! Actually I watched Federer’s first AO2014 match against local James Duckworth, and he wore neither of the shirts you are referring to here. In fact all on-line stores are selling the cream-colored one, but I do not think RF will wear it at this tournament
