RF Meets Brand Jordan?

In what may be the sports synergistic pairing of all times, Sneaker Report says that Roger Federer is going to wear this Nike RF/Jordan hybrid at the Open, which is contrary to what has been reported  to date (that info was supplied by Nike).

The rumored shoe is called, rather clumsily, the "Air Jordan 3 x Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9," with a suggested tag of..get ready..$200.

Ed. note: Federer has had a number of pricey special edition shoes over the years. I'm guessing this one has something to do with a specific number of wins that are related to a Jordan equal. No confirmation yet from Nike.
