Hey all, for the first time ever it looks like we might have a dedicated Federer Masters Clay Masters 1000 outfit that only sees the light of day in Monte Carlo.
That could change if Roger plays Rome but that currently looks unlikely following the birth of Leo and Lenny so I thought I’d post Roger’s French Open attire early. There’s apparently some talk he could play Nice or Dusseldorf but I think they are far too close to the French Open so it’d be very out of character.
As can see it follows the same style as before with the colourblocked sleeves and again I’m not a huge fan. I’m not 100% sure those are the correct shorts as images are hard to come by but the most important point is that they are red like the sleeves, bandana and sweatbands.
Nike officially call it “Grey Heather w/University Red & Metallic Summit White”. Some of the montages I’ve seen show a blue zip up / cover up top which I have included below but there’s also a Crimson Red one that’s newly available too.
Fed outfits tend to look better when worn, so you can check out the photo-shopped image for an idea below but the sleeves are a show stopper for me and Nike just cost themselves another $70 . The only real plus point are the Nike trainers which look decent, not quite beating the French Open 2011 pair but they should look good against the red clay.

What do you guys think? Are Nike doing a good job this year or is a change to Primark required for the GOAT?
