Gold is back. Roger Federer’s Wimbledon kit over the years featured subtle gold in the all white outfits he wore while dominating the lawns at Wimbledon. For 2014, the 7-time champion will sport gold again, in the latest from Nike’s fall 2014 line. The technical color from Nike however, is metallic zinc. The Swiss maestro will wear a classy polo, with no orange soled shoes which caught much attention last year.
If Federer is to walk out on Centre Court with a special jacket, sweater, or blazer (rule nothing out), it won’t be available until the start of the tournament. The 2014 Wimbledon Championships are from June 23 to July 6.

“The goal for my footwear and apparel is always lightness, comfort and style. What I’m wearing has to look good, be as breathable as possible and let me be faster to the ball,” said Roger Federer. “You can see in what I’m wearing for London that we’ve honored the tradition and elegance of this tournament, but that there is still real innovation in the fabrics and tailoring of my apparel that reflects my personal style and gives me the best chance of winning.”
The Nike Premier RF Polo, in a supremely elegant white colorway, is an ideal performance option for warm-weather matches and features Dri-FIT fabric to pull perspiration to the surface of the shirt where it evaporates quickly to keep the player dry and comfortable. Laser-perforated back and underarm panels provide maximum ventilation, and flatlock seams eliminate irritation to give the player every advantage.
Federer’s Nike Premier RF Cover-Up was inspired by his off-court style and is made from Dri-FIT sweater knit fabric, which delivers great breathability and comfort in a slim silhouette. Crafted open knit panels on the side and back of the jacket deliver improved ventilation, and an articulated sleeve design provides an ergonomic performance fit.
Federer’s Nike Gladiator Premier 9-inch short uses Dri-FIT fabric for superb comfort and the 9-inch inseam provides excellent on-court coverage. His footwear of choice remains the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour with a gold Swoosh, textile upper, flex grooves, supportive TPU foot frame and Dynamic Fit for a lightweight, cushioned and responsive high performance ride.
