from Eurosport.

It's official, Roger Federer, the world's best player, has had silicone implants. Not content with his more than adequate equipment, that won him Wimbledon and Australian Open titles, the Swiss has had cosmetic surgery on his racket and has even had it coloured in his favourite design.


And, just to be different he's the only one in the tournament to wear a blue shirt.

The 22-year-old is hoping that the "molecular nanotechnology" will give him an extra edge on the clay-courts this championship.

The new technology developed over the past two years by Amer Sports, the company that owns the Wilson brand, involves the injection of silicone oxide crystals into the microscopic air pockets between the graphite fibres in an ordinary tennis racket.

"The rackets feels good and I like the design, so I might as well change to it," explained the world number one.

Federer's racket is even coloured red and white, to mirror Switzerland's national flag.

Amer Sports, hope that by the time the U.S. open begins, that Justine Henin-Hardenne and Serena Williams will have followed suit.

Eurosport's almost as bad as ESPN. Hewitt and Ginepri also wore that beautiful blue color. :hearts:

Nobody's sporting the puke green that Andy's wearing though. :lol:

I actually happen to love that color and his outfit in general. And I never usually like his clothes. So, on this occassion, I must praise Roddick for his fashion sense. :D

I still think it's the girls vs. the boys on Andy's green shirt. Are there any women who think it's cool and/or fashionable?

Maybe the article meant that Roger was the only one who would wear that particularly style of Nike shirt in blue, because although Lleyton was wearing blue, it was a different style. I dunno, I guess we will see. Brad was making fun of the yellow shirts, but I think they are nice.

I was gonna ask if it was a completely new racquet, but I agree this one is much better :cool: it looks like a nice racquet, not a crap one anymore:D

I have to say I hated Spadea's blue and yellow outfit today. That might be the same as Roger's line of clothing, I don't know.

Even if it was another type of implants, I knew it had to be a joke. ;)

That's a sleek looking racket. :)

My Carlos looks sexy in it! :hearts: Actually, I'm too biased and I think he looks sexy wearing anything, so I guess I'm out of this one. :rolleyes: Haha. Yeah, that's his outfit for this French Open. It's really bright. I think it should come with a UV warning!

i don't mind the shirt. it looks good on him, it's just a little painful on the sensitive retina.
