Australian Open 2011 Fashion - Roger Federer

For the first time in his career Roger Federer beat French Gille Simon. Simon got Federer twice in 2008, taking down Roger at the Canadian Open and the Masters Cup. This time Roger dotted the i's and crossed the t's... However the match was tough - five sets with Gille leading after first two...

Since Roger is a defending champion and one of the favorites of this year's Australian Open, I'd like to devote this post to his look.

So, we saw Roger in Nike Federer Trophy Men's Tennis Polo (also available in yellow) - $80 (£39.99). Buy it from Nike, Tennis Warehouse, Tennis Express or Midwest Sports if you are in the U.S.; Pro-Direct Tennis, Tennis Nuts if you are in Great Britain; Tennis Only if you are in Australia.

The yellow details on the back are actually not stitched, but bonded.

 My favorite part is stylish RF logo on the collar

Shorts are Nike Men's Spring Challenger Woven Short - $50 (32,40€; £29.99). Available from Tennis Warehouse, Midwest Sports for American buyers; Tennis Land for EU residents; Pro-Direct Tennis, Tennis Nuts for buyers from Great Britain; Tennis Only for Australians.

 Roger's shoes are enhanced with the new Lunar technology. A full Lunarlon foam, in bright yellow, dominates the shoe, while a new generation of Flywire support minimized the weight further. Nike Lunar Vapor 8 Tour Men's Tennis Shoe - $120 (£84.99). Available from Nike, Tennis Warehouse, Tennis Express, Midwest Sports - USA; Tennis Nuts, Pro-Direct Tennis - Great Britain,  The Tennis Shop, Strung Out - Australia

To complete the style use Nike Spring Swoosh Bandana Maize - $12 (£9.99) from Tennis Warehouse, Midwest Sports, Tennis Nuts, Pro-Direct Tennis, Tennis Only, Strung Out, The Tennis Shop.
