Roger Federer Leaves Nike for Uniqlo

Pascal Maria recalls umpiring epic 2008 Wimbledon final Federer-Nadal

While no financial details were revealed, media reported the new deal will be worth around $30 million a year, compared with the $10 million a year agreement Federer had with Nike.

Federer came out in unbranded warm-ups, and during the match against Dusan Lajovic of Serbia, the 20-time Grand Slam victor wore a White Uniqlo shirt, shorts and headband and with white Nike shoes.

Given that Federer is 36, the end of his playing career is certainly approaching.

According to Forbes magazine's recent list of the world's highest-paid athletes, Federer now earns $77.2m (£57.63m) a year, with his Nike sponsorship one of the most lucrative deals in sport. The "RF" logo did appear on the plastic bags that cover his rackets. The deal also has a clause that says the Federer will continue to get the money even if he doesn't play.

"I think the three months did me again a world of good, that I didn't play during the clay court season".

During his partnership with Nike Federer created the iconic "RF" logo, which is owned by the brand. Nike's rights to the logo are not eternal, though, and they will return to Federer within "the next few years" per Christopher Clarey of the New York Times. But the good news is that it will come with me at one point.

'With the shoe situation, I don't have a shoe deal. This new contract marks a 300 per cent improvement on his old deal show that despite Federer's increasing years he remains a marketable commodity.

"For now, I will be wearing Nike".

"This week was very much for me just to recover, come in fresh for tomorrow [Monday]". Ties are not broken there.

That speculation was dampened last week after the 20-time Grand Slam champion won the Stuttgart Open in a Nike gear and images were released supposedly illustrating his outfit for Wimbledon.

Uniqlo had previously been associated with Federer's rival Novak Djokovic.
