Roger Federer’s Outfit for Miami 2016

Here's Roger Federer's outfit for Miami 2016 which was added to the schedule at the last minute after a quick recovery from knee surgery. Had Roger not torn his miniscus he'd have worn this outfit for Dubai and Indian Wells too.

It's the exact same styling as the Australian Open outfit just a different colour scheme. Not my favourite colours as it's a crimson type red but like the Aussie Open colours it might look good as a full outfit against the Miami courts:

What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments.

Huge fan of Roger Federer – I’ll pretty much try and 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 Fed and tennis in general.

  1. Again Nike has designed a kit that belongs more on a basketball court then a tennis court. The colored laces they have
    been doing on the shoes is too urban for my tastes – looks great for “Double Dutch” competitions however!

  2. I think white shorts would have been better. Too much orange.

    I’m so sick of the Nike “uniform” that came out at the AO. When I was at IW every 2nd player was wearing some form of it. Red or blue with stripes on the front. With the money they make from the sweat shops they should be doing better.

      1. Yea this outfit really lays the tomato look in ya. The shoes arent holding anything back. Btw love your site jonathon

  3. A bit too striking but I’m sure it will look good on Roger. Everything he wears usually is. I would have preferred white shorts though. So glad Roger is back. Missed him sooooo much.

    1. Hello there Sylvia. . Welcome to Perfect Tennis. I too like others have missed Federer from injury so will be really good to see him back in action.
      By the way I really like your surname I have never heard of that before, very unique in deed.Anway can’t wait for federer. It will be a sad day for Tennis when a Federer does retire in the future. No matter how many more Grand slams Djokovic wins he will never be on par with Federer and his accomplishments and records.

  4. No stripe on shorts Thank God! – Color of socks missing – hopefully white too. Never forget that one day he wore black socks with white shoes – it seemed the shoes wore doing all run-work with rest of Roger following along as best he could….

  5. I actually love him in red but yes, this might be a bit heavy-handed. But let’s face it, he could wear a sac and lstill ook better than everyone else. Now where is the draw???

  6. Yee-ow, that’s loud. Won’t be able to miss him in that, but I bet the colour will bleed all over the TV picture. I’d have said it was more a burnt orange from those pictures rather than crimson, but I guess we’ll see what it looks like on. And the stupid blue back stripe which seemingly doesn’t match anything else on the outfit …

    Oh, and Jonathan, you need to edit the post title 🙂

  7. Agree white shorts would have been a better choice. Same complaint as for AO outfit- front and back have nothing to do with each other, which is OBNOXIOUS. If they really wanted a vertical stripe in back, they could have used a vertical slice of the front pattern (& color). ,Presto, an outfit, instead of front and back of two separate shirts, mashed together. Or even better, do a wedge-shaped slice of the front pattern – a bit wider at the top, narrowing down to the same width they’ve got now.

    Draw comes out tomorrow, late I think. Really don’t think we know what to expect – he seems in good shape, but obviously hasn’t got any matches in his legs. Might he tire over the course of several matches? Same as Juan Martin in IW maybe? Round 4 – ish? It’s a strong field… Or maybe play himself into it.

    Interesting comment Jonathan made earlier somewhere about the balls being slower through the air but faster off the court (than at IW). (Hope i’m not misremembering your insight there J )

    1. He will definitely struggle if matches get physical, no two ways about it.

      Yeah IW is def fast through air because of the desert, Miami will be slower. But whilst I always thought it looked way slower on tv than IW, I remember players saying last year or year before, including Fed it plays faster.

    1. Yes, that was fun. Given how little tennis and how few of those stadia I actually see, I’m surprised I did as well as I did (11/14)!

  8. “In my next life when I come back I want to be someone in the WTA, because they ride on the coattails of the men,”

    “They don’t make any decisions and they are lucky.”

    “They are very, very lucky. If I was a lady player, I’d go down every night on my knees and thank God that Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal were born, because they have carried this sport. They really have.”

    What do you guys think of Raymond Moore’s comments? 🙂 I do agree that without Federer, and Nadal, tennis wouldn’t have reached the heights it has now.

    I like how Djokovic summed it up.

      1. Actually, the Djoker comments were not sexist at all. He meant that the ATP should do what they want, fight for more prize money. And likewise, the WTA can do that too [if they believe they deserve more prize money]. He said the statistics are out there to prove it.

        He’s got a point.

      2. Yeah I agree with Djokovic tbh. Maybe he could have worded it better I dunno but he summed it up pretty accurately.

        The numbers are clear for all to see – Men’s tennis kills women’s tennis on all fronts – ticket sales, viewing figures and revenue generated. It’s about two / three times as big.

        It’s interesting that despite a lot of tournaments offering equal prize money – the WTA has to inject cash themselves to the tournament to make up for the shortfall. So the guys who run the game know what sells and they won’t stand for propping stuff up 😆 but you never hear about it.

      1. An judging from the mediocre IW matches that I got the chance to watch, the rest of the pack shouldn’t be that fit, either…
        Fortunately the tournament was saved by the women’s final.

      2. …I just don’t get this infatuation with JM del Potro. That fellow has one of the weirdest forehands in the sport. I use that take-back to kill flies.

      3. ? I saw Delpo play Berdych at IW.

        As far as the comments from Moore, not surprised. In most sports the women are 2nd class. Tennis is one of a handful of sports where women are in the spotlight. Hockey in Canada is big. The men get all the attention, sponsors, money, etc. When the Olympics roll around the women are then expected to win gold even though no money was thrown their way.
        I remember at the AO, an old fart interviewed Bouchard court side. He asked her to “twirl” in her outfit. Sexist ass.

      4. Moore’s comments were a bit daft and his turn of phrase poor but if you look at what he was actually trying to articulate then he’s correct – WTA is hanging off the coat tails of the ATP. The numbers prove it.

        He also said the exact same thing about the ATP about 8 years ago in an interview when he said women’s tennis was helping the men stay afloat as there wasn’t any consistent winners with players like Ferrero, Costa etc winning slams which hurt the marketability considerably.

        Bouchard has done plenty magazine deals and last time I saw her she was wearing an outfit that made it look like she had no clothing on her bottom half. So is asking her to twirl out of order? She’s happy to cash in on her image when it suits her. But when someone on court asks her to twirl he is a sexist ass? Good one Sue.

  9. Jonathan, a magazine deal is a choice. Being asked to twirl is not. Next time Fed is being interviewed courtside, I’m hoping the female interviewer (Maryjo) will ask him to twirl. He does have a nice butt and has done many magazine spreads to boot.

    As far as men’s vs women’s tennis. Both have value. The women’s final was far more entertaining this year at IW. Men are bigger and stronger…that side of sport will never change.
    Most of the time, I prefer men’s tennis.
    Especially the guy with the nice butt.

  10. Well, men’s tennis generates more, right? tbh, I don’t like the “striped nightshirt”, lol.

    In my next life I want to be male. Then I can go to an airbnb and don’t have to worry about creeps.

  11. Wow, too much orange, crimson or tomato what ever called. But anything is delightful at this point for me so long as Fed plays tennis with it.

      1. I didn’t go anywhere, Sue. Our local Internet provider went down for 3 days over the weekend with no apparent reason, and so did Tel/TV. The company’s office was mysteriously ‘Fermé Exceptionnelle’. My antique mobile was useless, too. It was beyond joke. Glad to be back just in time for Fed’s return!

        Scary though, to realise how much we rely on Internet there days…
