Darth Fed is Back for the US Open!

I’m glad to announce that Roger will be back in black this year at the US Open. If you can remember he wore black at the US Open of 2007. Here is a picture:

That was one of my personal favorites from Roger which made me give him the nickname Darth Fed. To me black is a color that represents strength. Darth Fed comes from the movie Star Wars of course, where Darth Vader was the evil Sith Lord that wore black:

Now I’m not suggesting Roger becomes evil when he wears black, but for his opponents he might as well be as intimidating as Darth Vader. Here is what he will be wearing this year:

I’m also happy to see the red is back. I thought the red he wore at last year’s US Open looked very nice as well. To me red represents passion. He will be wearing the red shirt with the white shorts during day matches and the full black outfit in the night matches. Except for a few fashion blunders at Wimbledon, Roger must be one of the best dressed tennis players out there, if not the best. Of course he wears Nike, which doesn’t hurt either. When I was playing I didn’t have a clothing contract, but I tried to wear Nike whenever I could. They are just so stylish. Like Roger I like beautiful clothes and I almost felt more motivated when I was wearing nice clothes. Well it looks like Roger is ready for his 6th straight US Open to become the first man in the open era to win 6 US Opens, at least when it comes to his clothes!

May the FedForce be with you.

PS. Let me know what is your favorite Roger outfit, I’d be interested to know! My favorite’s were the red he wore at last year’s US Open and the black he wore in 2007, but these look great as well!

  1. Boy, does Roger (and Nike) have great taste. I can see a little too much on the Wimby outfit, but who remembers what anyone else wore, only what Roger wore. As for the US Open, Red and Black are powerful colors and always look perfect on Roger. As I still get nervous when Roger plays, at least he will look good.

    I personally like the outfit he wore when he beat Agassi, (can’t remember what year that was?)

    And Ru-an, I am from Philadelphia. Go Phillies!!!!

  2. I love federer in black like he wore in ’07. Red on black looks great too. After wimbledon white, us open black is just an amazing contrast.

    Yup, its time to put the traditions of Wimby behind him and get down and dirty :twisted:

  3. I have a question about clothing: Wimbledon has an all-white dress code. Does the US Open have something that stipulates that black color? I just wonder, because I see that Rafa is also wearing dark colored shorts and his shoes have a black theme to them. Just curious.

    Oh, and great blog! Sorry I’ve never commented before.

    Thanks! No i dont think they have a dress code. As far as colour go anyway. The US Open is a good place to express yourself with your clothing i think, like Roger has done.

  4. When I look at Federer’s black and red attire for the U.S. Open, I think it’s nice. However I love the 2007 black and silver. It’s just classier and rich rather than the red on black. What I miss the most is the tuxedo shorts he wore in 2007. If anyone knows where I could buy a pair? If anyone is selling them, please let me know. Thanks.
