yay we've seen it , I don't know how he does it but I would feel pretentious wearing in on court . The suite is very nice and probably very exclusive befitting a sports royalty, I remember Lebron James had a similar white suite but he wore it only on the draft night , albeit he didn't even play a minute in the nba

Re: what do you make of federer walking on court looking like this?

My biggest issue is that it makes him seem so old.

Roger plays into what his management has him do and I believe he enjoys it, but he's just a cute, geeky guy. I'd rather see that then him transforming into an old geezer.

I do like the shirt vest combo, but I don't think he found it comfortable to play in.

Fed man looks awesome, but I don't really buy him in this "elegant" gentleman image. He's playing dress-up and it comes off kind of pretentious.

Re: what do you make of federer walking on court looking like this?

i feel that he is doing the image of the game harm rathe rthan good

we are trying to bring this game forward and he is wearing what they wore 100 years ago that does not help

a kid watching that will switch it off instantly and associate it with boring and uncool watch someone like rafa they can associate with it and think that is cool and that is what is going to improve the image of the game not some tart turning up in a suit to play tennis it is embarassing

I have to agree...although I not a fan, I certainly respect his genius...but I find him terribly pretentious. Not at all sincere. But I guess when you play like he does, it doesn't much matter what people think!

not all kids think that dressing like Nadal is "cool" , or so i hope. Wimbledon is a tournament full of traditions and it's good that the champ does something special for it

Re: what do you make of federer walking on court looking like this?

I like it because I think he can pull it off. It is well known that he likes style and fashion. So, this look, his Wimbledon resume, and the way he wears the ensemble before each match fits him. I can't think of any other player I'd like to see walk onto the court dressed this way.

I'm interested in the extra bag players are carrying onto the court lately. I guess Roger needs his bag for his outfit. I think I've seen Serena with an extra bag as well.
