Roger Federer criticizes tennis outfit makers for being ‘too modern’

Roger Federer thinks tennis polo is too iconic to overshadow it funky designed outfits, that brands do now.

After 24-year collaboration with Nike Federer has signed a deal with Uniqlo and is working with that company for several months.  

“To be quite honest, I just feel like we have some awful tennis-looking outfits sometimes. They’ve just gone too far in the wrong direction. They want to make it look too much like a modern tennis shirt that is completely wrong, in terms of designs.” Federer has spoken out on modern outfits (via Tennis World USA)

“Like a truck drove over it — or they’re just going to come up with funky graphics, which I think in a sport of tennis, that has such a rich history…you know, the tennis polo is very iconic. I feel like if we work on that, to redesign that, which looks nice and crisp and new and fresh, that’s really important to me.” he has added.
