Roger Federer has his work cut out for him at this week’s Masters Series Cincinnati tournament. He’s looking to bounce back (still) after back-to-back losses to Nadal (Wimby) and Gilles Simon (Toronto). He beat Gineps 6-7 (2), 7-6 (5), 6-0 in the first round. Yikes.
On to lighter fare: let’s take a look at his practice tees from this week.
The Beijing Olympics get some love from Nike with these two “080808” shirts. That, of course, is the date for this year’s opening ceremonies. The Chinese associate eight with good luck.
By the way, we’ll be doing a few posts on Olympics-related fashion (both tennis and non-tennis) in the coming days. To start, let’s take a look at what Nike designed for the Chinese Federation. Others, including Roger’s and Rafa’s kits, to follow.
The RF monogram appears in gold on this short-sleeved v-neck.
This shirt makes another appearance.
Nice light sheer fabric on this white/blue striped tee. Button tab on the sleeves.
OT: The Cincinatti Art Museum currently has an exhibit up for photographer Gregory Crewdson. He’s known for his large-scale overly produced photographs (he has a crew of 40!). If you’re in town for the tourney, go check it out.
