Kei Nishikori crazy for Roger Federer's new fashion collection: "I love it!"

Not only and exclusively tennis for Roger Federer, but also a new fashion collection with UNIQLO, in collaboration with Jonathan Anderson, which drove Kei Nishikori crazy.

For the first time since his retirement, last July Roger Federer returned to Centre Court at Wimbledon. Guest of the Royal Box and Princess Kate Middleton, the Swiss received a long and emotional standing ovation before the match between Elena Rybakina and Shelby Rogers.

After London, the Swiss Maestro launched its new LifeWear collection on August 3, in collaboration with Northern Irish designer Jonathan Anderson. Nishikori was entranced by the new collection, and published photos of himself wearing items from Federer's fashion collection, praising the '90s vibe.

Nishikori, UNIQLO ambassador, wrote on Instagram: "UNIQLO launches a new collection dedicated to design by Federer. Feeling the 90's tennis vibe and I'm loving it. Be sure to check it out!"

Federer talked about him coming back at Wimbledon

Federer talked about a curious episode linked to his presence at the All England Club and tried to explain the different sensations he felt compared to the 2022 visit, when he celebrated 100 years of the most famous Center Court in the world together with the majority of tennis players and tennis players who have won Wimbledon at least once in their career.

At that time, the Swiss had not yet retired and the desire to compete played a cruel joke on him.

He told the Wall Street Journal: "My father joined me in the Royal Box and asked me: Wouldn't you like to be on the field instead of sitting here? My answer was clear: For the love of God, no I'm very happy to be sitting here. I was happy and at peace with myself. I enjoyed the show even without playing. In 2022, when I was on the pitch to celebrate Centrale's 100th anniversary, I felt I didn't really want to be there.

Obviously it was important to be there and be part of that event, but I felt a feeling of pain and a sense of dissatisfaction. This year I was much happier when I returned; just as people were happy to see me."
