Roger Federer’s US Open Outfit 2014

Here's Roger Federer's US Open Outfit for 2014. As usual he'll have a day session outfit and a night session one which sees the return of Darth Federer!

I'm liking both of them really and the blue / turquoise day session one is much better than the Mint Green he wore in Toronto / Cincy. Nike have definitely done good a job here and I think they have timed the return of the black night session outfit pretty well. It's been 7 years since he wore the original which got him the nickname Darth Federer with the American press. Hopefully this year see's the same result.

Back to the outfit, what do you guy thinks? Is Darth Federer destined for good things? Should he tie the black outfit in with a new marketing deal with Head & Shoulders?


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 writing about tennis I play regularly myself and have a keen interest in tactics, equipment and technicalties of the sport.

      1. I don’t comment very oftern but faithfully follow Jonathans blog and I am really liking this comment! It’s exciting and I all I can say is I feel the force is strong with Fed for this one!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. he is confidant, riding the tides very comfortably, some big absence :), so why not. he should be favorite, for me, to win it
        all the best

  1. Oh yes, much Betterer!
    Love the black nightie, though not sure about the pink swish on the day outfit. Why pink?

    Hey Jonathan, how about asking the company to make ‘peRFect Tennis’ T-shirts?

    1. Not really though about peRFect T-Shirts really, would anyone wear them? I’m not sure. I would probably as lounge wear or for playing tennis…

  2. Darth Federer returns! Those night session trainers look awesome! If somebody could buy them for me as a generous gift, I would highly appreciate it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Wow, the “Darth Federer” night outfit is way cooler than anything he’s ever worn to this day! The streaks of grey on the shoulders act as รฉpaulettes, giving it a look of grander and class, while the sleek collar and dazzling white swoosh with “RF” on the sleeve let you know exactly who you’re dealing with… Roger Darth Federer. The jet back shoes with sparkly red, getting on for pink, are absolutely ridiculous but hey, we’re in New York, no better place to go overboard…! So, US Open title #6 please!

    1. You should write for a fashion magazine Theo ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I like the colour and look, but worried the fit is same as Cincy? Wasn’t the best hanging piece of clothing…

      1. Haha man I got carried away there for a moment… :p Hope he does well, but we’ll all feel like idiots if he gets a first rounder in a day match ^^ #not gonna happen! (touch wood)

      2. Yeah, to me they look like the same outfit as Toronto/Cincy, just different colors. Still better than the early season stuff though, & it looks like the colors may match better.

      3. oops, I see this has already been said many times below, should have been more patient…

  4. So staying within the Star Wars world, would this then be The Empire Strikes Back or The Return of the Jedi?

      1. Guess that applies if Fed/Novak make it to final, not only for Wimbledon but for the 2010 and 2011 us open, man it would be so sweet if Fed were to win this match in two weeks!

      2. No, actually it would be “Return of the Fedi” ๐Ÿ˜€

        The black outfit brings back some great memories from past night sessions. Looking forward to some new disturbances in the force by Darth Federer!

  5. Love the darth federer outfit and also let’s hope he can repeat the result he did last darth federer ago. His day outfit is also really nice and it looks slightly better than sixinatti.

  6. Yep I like the black outfit. Especially the black and red sneakers ( trainer’s). I really hope he can get number 18 and his 6th title at the US, and get the Open Era record to surpass Connors and Sampras tie.
    For Jonathan I actually quite like the Green mint colour that he wore at Toronto and Cincy. Its not that bad compared to other ones that have been poor by Nike.
    Anyway now that Nadal s out of the picture, I think usually Federer does well at tournaments when hes not there or has been knocked out. Hopefully with a good and kind draw Federer can maximise this to go deep. I still believe Federer has a lot more to show and considering them 2 losses against Djokovic, a win at the US will surely make amends. Darth Federer returns, let battle commence. Come on Rogeeeeeerrr ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yeah he has a good record at Slams where Dull has gone into hiding. Which is quite often seen as though he hasn’t played 4 slams in a season since 2011.

  7. YES!! Darth Fed is back! Looks like its gonna be an awesome U.S Open. The day session outfit isnt quite my taste. It looks a little clowny to me? But The Open will probably put him in more night matches. Good for the fans, hopefully Fed plays like 2008 too. Interesting fact: If Roger wins the title and Nole falls in/before the Semis, Fed will reclaim Number 1 in the Race to London. As the Race points and Reak rankings equal in a few months, Fed can finish number 1. His chances increase as his favorite indoor season is coming. ALLEZ!!!

  8. Hi Jonathan

    Both fabulous outfits – hope the shirts are fitted and not baggy like Cincy and the same length front and back, he will look awesome in the day and night attire. Here’s hoping for Number 18 – he so deserves it after the way he has been playing this year, becasue there has been no one betterer than Mr Federer – is it 49 wins so far – I’m sure you will correct me if I am wrong jonathan – Allez Roger

  9. I’m loving both of them, but I really like the Darth Federer outfit.
    … and the sweater looks… just… perfect!

    Have a good one!

  10. Not *entirely* sure about the day one: if the colours go well together it’ll be fine – I’m just not convinced from the photos that they do. And hoping that we get that extra bit of length back on the shirts so we don’t see so much tummy.

    The black one looks great – so much better than Novak’s black one for wherever it was.

    1. Yeah the day one isn’t great, but the photos can be misleading as some of them have different colours in, also depends on which stock picture I can find. Colours on screen always differ to real life too.

  11. Well, the last time Roger wore the Darth Fed outfit was in 2009 – and he made it to the Finals. Somehow, I suspect that he’ll go that far as well and win it all! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Hi Jonathan, Been a lurker of your blogger for years but never commented. Just wanna say you are just so freaking fantastic. How do you keep so up-dated with Fed happenings? You never allow yourself to slack, do you? Really admire your work/blog ethics. Do you even have a job? How do you manage to stay on the job and at the same time watching Roger’s matches live all the time, AND reporting them so fast?!!! You are just amazing. Just wanna say that to you. And I love your readers comments. There is such a freedom of expression, a variety of opinions (informational, witty, funny, inspiring, interesting, intelligent)and although you have many very strongly opinionated readers and they debate and disagree hotly, there is a non-judgemental spirit about your blog (although of course the deliberate trolls are given the judgemental boot which they asked for anyway). I really like that about your blog. Not many blogs are as liberal as yours Jonathan and I congratulate you for that. I fear to comment in some blogs because I like to go overboard when Roger wins but at the same time I also wanna be able to say I am so pissed with his performance if he doesn’t perform well. Some Fed fans are so jumpy/defensive the moment you say something negative and accuse you of not being true fan and the like. I think that’s childish. I don’t like those kind of blogs. Being a fan should be passionate and we should be able to experience both positive and negative emotions and be able to express and talk about them in a friendly, enjoyable and mature manner. You yourself have no qualms criticising Roger and not be unnecessarily apologetic or defensive about it. I like that. At the same time, you give Roger his due and give him lots of credit and room, especially for what he is achieving in the latter stages of his career. You have the right balance. So because there seem to be a lot of acceptance here, I thought I just might start commenting from now on. My name, by the way, follows the whims and fancies of The Mighty Fed. It was No. 17 two years ago. Achieved. So my name moves on now to No. 18. Usually I would need to update it every year or every couple years because Roger always outdates it in more or less that time frame!! In other words, it’s all looking OMINOUS that no. 18 is in the not too far horizon! Watch out New York! Darth Fed is a-coming with his no. 18!! Btw, I think his shirt will be same length as Toronto/Cincy. Usually they have the same cuts for a whole series of tournaments. Like many, I do not like the shorter shirts. It is so distracting seeing his hairy belly in every shot, lol! But more importantly, he should stick to fitting shirts. He has such a beautiful upper body. He should not hide it in loose clothing. Nike, please get back to tight fitting please!!

    1. Thanks No. 18 ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yeah I have a job. But it’s somewhat flexible so I can watch tennis ๐Ÿ™‚

      I agree on the shirt too, will be same fabric / design just different colour.


  13. Hey, really liking the outfits! All coming together peRFectly in time for no 18 I hope!
    Nice to see so many comments from Sid! Welcome back!
    Yes agree with Wanda, ‘peRFect tennis’ T shirts wld be great!
    Read the SI interview! Can’t believe he even likes packing! This guy is unreal! Positive about just everything!!
    See you all in 1R! The excitement is growing!

      1. i remember reading that way back when, Fed won a tournament (can’t remember where) at the time Mirka started travelling with him.
        He said he was packing his bag and Mirka said now that is my job. After that she took on the management end of things.

  14. From the link Wanda shared.

    SI: What has been the biggest change, 33 versus 23?

    Federer: The game has evolved. Racket technology and especially string technology have had a big impact. More and more guys play from the baseline. Iโ€™ve had to adjust to that. Back in the day, in a nutshell you’d have about 30 percent of the guys serving-and-volleying, 30 percent playing aggressively and 30 percent retrieving. Now it’s all pretty much the same. Everybody has a good serve, forehand, backhand. Usually don’t volley very well. So you get stuck in the same rallies more often, which is way more predictable, which is easier. But maybe it’s not as fun sometimes as it used to be when one day you played the retriever, then you play the aggressive guy. I like the change.

    Then [another change is] just how do you manage your experience? Because experience can be a very good thing, but sometimes it can also be a hindrance. Youโ€™re not playing as freely, youโ€™re playing the percentages too much. It becomes too calculated. I like to play free-flowingยญ tennis. I have to remind myself to play like a junior sometimes.

    What would you say?

    SI: The biggest change for me? Social media, probablyโ€”

    Federer: Social media, right!

  15. Hi Guys, Itโ€™s been awhile and great to see Federer won his six cinci title. Amazing!

    Thanks Jonathan for updating each and every Fed match. Really very helpful to catch up where I left.

    Well, what I can say about 2014 US Open. Fed should really try to make No 18. Itโ€™s a great opportunity for our GOAT.

    Like I said before, there is a weird cycle is going on in GS finals in 2014. Let see:

    AO Final – Stan won and Rafa lost

    FO Final – Rafa won and Nole lost

    Wimbi – Nole won and Fed lost

    USO – Hope Fed will win and XX will lose… : )

    See the pattern LOL. Let the game begin.

  16. Is this the same cutting as the one for Toronto/Cincinnati?

    I like the color more than the one for Toronto/Cincy, but if it is the same cutting, mmm…
    As somebody mentioned, the polo looks like wide and short, it fall loose on Federer’s shape. I really hope this is not the case for USO outfit above.

    Anyway, really like the color, both day and night are awesome!

    Darth Federer: No, I am your father

  17. Lol Sue! That’s exactly what I like about this blog. Humor; either straight, tongue in cheek or even sarcastic is well understood here. Everyone seems to feel “safe” to speak their mind. No one is overly sensitive, there’s a lot of give and take, and everything is accepted in good humor and good will. I cannot help but admire Jonathan (hence making his head even bigger than it already is I suspect!!) and all you wonderful readers here. Keep up the great kindred spirit!!!

    1. Super comment and welcome to the community No.18!

      Thanks to you, now Jonathan’s head is so big and heavy that he couldn’t sit upright to write the draw post. Hellow Jonathan, we are all waiting ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Lol lol lol lol Wanda!! Again, another super example of why I love reading this blog. You guys are so funny and your relationship with Jonathan is so great and secure, you can tease him so “cruelly” and he just takes it “nah” and continue to humour and oblige all of you! I’m still laughing my head off. Thanks Wanda! Jonathan! Time to sit up straight with that BIG head and start writing! Lol!

  19. Hey Adil, sorry to point out but he won 7th Halle this year. Otherwise it would have been a great coincidence ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Oops Rightly pointed wanda!! Coming back to the mission newyork , I believe Federer needs a good first week to make it all the way!! The Fedberg game will prevail especially in the first, I ed prefer the grinding baseline play starts late in the second, if at all it does.
