Roger Federer has not just been hitting the headlines in the tennis world with his wins at the Australian OpenIndian Wells and Miami– the Swiss star has also been gracing the world’s fashion pages with his recent GQ feature and turning heads at the Met Gala in his King Cobra tux. The Tennis Review celebrates Federer’s championship form, both on and off court, with a review of his top ten looks. 

1. Young Punk

Baseball cap back to front, baggy shorts, and a scowl at tennis not going his way, Federer is just another tennis kid punk impatient to make his mark on a game he still needs to grow into. The Federer who threw his racket and shed tears, the one Federer would have to defeat just like his rivals if he was ever going to realize a talent and soothe a temper only a tennis brat like the real baby Federer could get away with.

2. Dashing No.1

Federer did defeat his inner tennis brat, and bloomed into a dashing no. 1,  pictured above looking dapper in black, a color which makes him look even leaner than he already is, and compliments his slick jet black locks. Befitting of a fashion icon in the making, Federer gets the accessories right, too, with a matching black watch strap.

3. Tennis’ Golden Boy

During Wimbledon ’08, Federer wore his personalized Nike RF label embroidered in Gold on a classic cardigan, a fitting outfit for the then five time defending champion of tennis’ most traditional tournament, tennis’ very own Golden Boy.

Alison Van der Lande, luxury tennis bag designer, gives her view on Federer’s look:

Federer is always so beautifully styled and groomed pre and post match, no matter how many sets! His self presentation is obviously a key element to his approach to the game and looking good helps to mentally boost his positive approach to the match ahead. This is also reflected throughout his wardrobe both on and off court. The gold detail on his jacket/cardigan is key, gold is the winner’s color….. he was going out to win!

4. Boy Next Door

When Federer is not creating history and fashion, he needs to relax and get his creative juices going again, and few sports idols can look quite as chilled when pondering world domination as Federer does in the above photo lying on a hammock.

The Swiss’ clothes basic and loose, his hair tidy on the sides, a little ruffled on top, Federer looks every inch the boy next door, but only if you live in Hollywood and the boy next door is 6 ft 1 inches all movie star top model.

5. Call Me Federer. Roger Federer.

Talking of movie stars, Federer gave a few a run for their money when he turned up looking dapper as Bond at the 2016 Oscars, stealing the movie star show in much the same way he has the tennis one.

Federer can also add a bit of bite to the 007 look- check out the clip of him below wearing a Gucci tux with an embroidered crystal King Cobra on the back at the recent Met Gala.

6. Down to Earth Sunday Hit.

Life cannot be all play when you are arguably the Greatest of all time. There’s plenty of practice to be done in order to settle that debate once and for all and Federer is as quick as anyone to put on some shorts and t-shirts and get out to work.

When Federer hits the practice courts, he does not wear any old t-shirt, though – this very modern tennis legend wears t-shirts with an emoji of his own face on them.

7. Smouldering Sex Symbol

Clean-cut, check.

Punky look, check.

Long locked pretty boy, check.

Where do you go when you have pretty much done it all? How about Smouldering sex symbol five O’clock shadow look? Federer’s beard nearly overshadowed his impressive straight sets defeat of Novak Djokovic at the 2015 WTF, and you can see why from the above picture.

8. Men’s Fashion Icon.

Federer’s 21st century icon status was once again celebrated by his feature in GQ magazine celebrating his status as the most stylish man on earth and reminding us  how he looks just as good in expensive tailored outfits as he does in his tennis kit.

9. Mid 30s Grand Slam Champion

Black and white is as classic a fashion color combo as Federer’s smart serve and first strike tennis is a classic tennis style, and Federer did both styles more than justice on his run to the Australian Open ’17 title.

10. ATP Tour Race Leader and Three Time Sunshine Double Winner.

If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.

Federer has continued his winning ways in 2017, winning the Sunshine double, and kept on his Australian Open tennis kit pattern, too. The color was changed, of course, to match the Miami and Indian Wells tennis court side Green, the kind of deft touch you would expect from Federer, a man as gifted in his fashion sense as he is with his hands at the tennis net.
