Roger Federer continues to remain silent on what’s happening with his clothing deal. Rumors have been swirling that after years of being the face of Nike tennis – the sports apparel maker did not renew its contract with the Swiss star back in March – Federer will switch to Uniqlo in a 10-year deal worth $30M per year, according to some.
When asked for an update Monday in Halle, Federer didn’t offer much other than negotiations continue.
“I explained that my contract ran out back in March,” Federer said. “So, naturally there are a lot of talks going on and there is nothing really I have to add to it. And when the time is right and there is something to say I will. But until then I won’t really enjoy talking this conversation to be honest. Not that there is a problem but it is just one of these situations you wished it was resolved already a long time ago.”
Last week, Federer admitted he’s wearing Nike for free and in good faith. “As long as I don’t have a new contract with a clothing sponsor, I continue wearing Nike, which has been a good partner for 20 years.”
Should Federer switch to another clothing brand, Nike does own the “RF” logo.
So will we see Federer wearing a new logo and new brand at Wimbledon?
