20-time Grand Slam champion, Roger Federer had switched sponsors from long-time partner ‘Nike‘ to Japanese apparel brand ‘Uniqlo’ in 2018.

In doing so, the Swiss lost the rights to his iconic logo created with Nike which were his own initials ‘RF’ that used to be inscribed on caps and clothing.

However, the legendary player had recently shared the exciting news of reacquiring the rights to the logo from his then sponsor ‘Nike’ in order to bring back the trend.

The new collection of caps designed by ‘Uniqlo’ have Federer’s initials inscribed on it and fans have been sent into a frenzy as the new ‘RF’ Caps got sold out within 10 minutes of its launch on December 8.

The ‘Roger Federer’ brand is still alive

Currently the global face of Japanese apparel giants ‘UNIQLO’, Roger Federer had posted a video on Twitter last week, announcing that the caps, with his trademark initials, will be put up for sale again by UNIQLO.

The caps come in eight attractive colours and have already sparked a global sales craze as buyers hardly spent any time to browse through the 200 pieces for each colour, before they got sold out.

The caps come under different price bands, with the lowest being 49 dollars and the highest priced at 200 dollars. A set of caps in all eight colors has been priced at $593.08.

A tremendous ambassador of tennis, Federer proved that even during the ambiguity circling around his glorious career, the brand ‘Roger Federer’ is still alive and kicking.

Although fans did not witness much from the Swiss in terms of tennis action, Federer has resumed to be back at the Australian Open 2021 post a 11 month injury layoff.
