Hey all, I'm back from a brief blogging hiatus and looking forward to seeing Roger back on the court in Stuttgart in just over 2 weeks time.
With Fed not setting foot on clay, I've neglected the blog somewhat with my last post being at the start of April and only thanks to Miss Elly's fan story there being something in between then and now. I've still been reading all the comments of course but other than that I've been busy working to do much general tennis blogging. I have lots of ideas but they all require a bit of extra research to really make worthwhile publishing.
Anyway, onto one of my bread and butter posts, Roger Federer's outfit for Stuttgart and Halle 2018. He'd also have been wearing this one at the French Open but that's obviously off the cards. You can check it out below:
So a classic polo design here from Nike and it's probably one of my favourite colour / design combos in a while. Nike calls it Neo Turquoise, Blue Force, and Metallic Silver. I especially like the stripe detail on the shoulder so depending on how it looks in non-stock photos it might be the first one I actually consider buying in a long time. The red polo on the end is the outfit for Monte Carlo, Madrid and Rome which has gone unworn. You can also pick them up at reduced prices now they're ‘out of date'.
What do you guys think of the outfit? And how much tennis have you followed during the clay swing? I've been following results but haven't watched a great deal other than bits of Djokovic's matches, some of the Rome final and Stan's win in Geneva last night. Bring on the grass!
