Tennis Fashion at Roland Garros: Roger Federer French Open Nike 2011

Roger Federer Nike Roland Garros 2011 And so Roger gets his polo back, this one red as a race-car. It's the refined, in-control handsome we've grown to love on the guy.

Federer's French Open polo will be this Nike RF Trophy stripe tennis shirt in sport red with team red and white, $80. Updates from past polos include a super high-quality lightweight dri-fit, a collar and placket with window-pane detail and "sonic welded seams" for zero discomfort. The yarn died stripe is woven right in and is quite subtle, adding a more youthful, sporty feel to an otherwise traditional cut.

Federer's shorts are constructed of dri-fit woven fabric with a herringbone print and classic tennis short detail; a tailored look (complete with button back pocket) with modern day stretch built in. Alas, we mortals will not be offered this exact short. The version we get is a more simple elastic pull-on with faux fly construction and a zip back pocket, $50. 

Roger Federer Tennis Shoes Federer's tennis shoe is the Nike Lunar Vapor 8 Tour, lightweight and supportive, built for light-stepping speed (dancing in Roger's case), $120 USD.

Will Rog see that checkered flag? Time will tell.
