2013 Aussie Ensembles: Roger Federer

In years past, Roger Federer’s Aussie garb has consisted of relatively conventional hues (red in 2012, yellow in 2011, and blue in 2010). This year, the King of classiness is channeling a fresh, light and lively look at the Australian Open; stepping out in a colorful combo of turquoise, light grey, and bubblegum pink.

Leave it up to the Maestro to make pink look manly. His latest pair of Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tours feature an eye-catching combination of Anthracite and Polarized Pink. Pink details at the tongue, heel, and laces pop against the dark grey upper.

These kicks may be pretty in pink, but they pack a punch when it comes to performance. The Zoom Vapor 9 Tour is equipped with the latest technologies designed to deliver speed and stability. Adaptive Fit technology provides optimized stability and fit, combined with mesh for ventilation. And a Nike Zoom unit provides responsive performance and cushioning.

For day matches, we’ll see Roger rocking the Nike Premier RF Tennis Polo in Neo Turquoise. Made of stretchy Dri-Fit UV fabric, this cool and classy polo will keep him comfortable and protected. Mesh panels at the sides, back and neck greatly enhance ventilation. And bonded seams reduce irritation while maintaining a sleek fit and a lightweight feel. Look closely at the placket and you’ll see small laser-cut holes, adding even more breathability.

For night matches Fed will wear this polo in Stadium Grey with Polarized Pink accents. The light grey fabric gives off a silky sheen under the bright lights of Rod Laver Arena.

The Nike Premier RF Knit Jacket is designed to provide an optimal balance of warmth and breathability. Laser perforations at the sleeves and neck provide strategic ventilation in high-heat areas, while a ribbed mock collar zips to the chin, providing protection from the elements. Bonded side zipper pockets offer secure, water resistant storage.

Add the Ten Inch Twill Shorts and you’re ready to hit the hard courts. Though Fed’s own shorts feature his signature button-fly waistband, these will provide the same style and performance with a comfortable elastic drawcord waist.

As for his most important accessory, Roger will be wielding his weapon of choice: The Wilson BLX Pro Staff Six.One 90. Called the perfect blend of control and feel, this formidable stick features a legendary braided graphite construction, as well as BLX technology and an updated Amplifeel handle system. Amplifeel technology significantly reduces harsh vibrations and creates an enhanced, cleaner feel.
