Roger unveiled his new Wimbledon look today on his Facebook page (click here), (Roger will be taking Rafa’s place as first up on Centre Court, which makes me nervous for some reason.)
Of course The Independent described Roger’s Wimbledon look in an article called “Federer cramps Murray’s style“:
If the Murray sweater looked like a response to the cardigan Federer wore here last year, the Swiss revealed yesterday that he has taken the fashion game to another level. The champion of tennis style will march on to Centre Court for his first match tomorrow in a military-style jacket. According to the Nike publicity machine, it will be “a more contemporary look this year, whilst still retaining the stylistic cues which make him stand out from the other players”.
I think it looks good – and I’ll reserve final judgment until we see more. I do wish it was more Rod Laver and less Elton John, but if anyone can pull it off, Roger can. **UPDATED** – The new, larger photo makes Roger look like a bellhop – a really, really hot bellhop. “Why, yes, you can take my bags to my room, Roger!”
If I had a Roger “Ken” doll, I’d probably dress him in this Wimbledon-casual look:
Hey, isn’t that Jose Higueras? Looks like Roger’s saying something like, “Thanks, Jose, those tips you gave me finally worked out. . .not!”
