Roger Federer's outfit sets tongues wagging at Wimbledon

Sweden lost the 1958 World Cup final to Brazil

The deal also allows for Federer's team to sell patches on his shirt, which could lead him to raking in even more money-something Nike did not allow.

Uniqlo doesn't make tennis footwear, so Federer wore white Nike shoes with light blue swooshes on Monday.

The eight-time Wimbledon victor beat Dusan Lajovic 6-1, 6-3, 6-4.

Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer is still looking for a new shoe contract but says he has had interest from former sponsor Nike.

The most jarring change is the lack of the iconic "RF" logo, which is owned by Nike, not Federer. "You know, I often find the less I serve, the better I serve, which is totally weird".

Federer is expected to earn $300m (£258m) from the Japanese clothing brand over the next 10 years regardless of whether he actually plays any tennis matches or not.

South Korea's Hur Jae, who captained his side during the defeat, is now returning to Pyongyang as a coach. China and North Korea see an opportunity to ask US troops to leave if and when a peace treaty is signed.

Vekic, who sealed the upset on her fourth match point, faces Slovakia's Viktoria Kuzmova or Sweden's Rebecca Peterson in the second round.

IN fine form and a happy headspace, Nick Kyrgios believes he's as ready as ever to win Wimbledon.

Cilic made four service breaks in a match lasting one hour and 45 minutes on Court Two against the 22-year-old left-hander Nishioka, who returned to action in March after major knee surgery last year.

The seemingly ageless Swiss, who turn 37 in August, has planned his year around defending the title he claimed last year by beating Croatia's Marin Cilic.

American Sam Querrey, a semi-finalist previous year, fired 15 aces as he secured a 6-2 6-4 6-3 victory over Australian Jordan Thompson. And then, a five-game run and 25 minutes later, Williams had completed the 7-5, 6-3 result. Nike has already discounted most of the Federer-related gear on its website. The Serb is now a brand ambassador for Lacoste.

And the 20-time grand slam victor could probably get away without washing his new shirt, barely breaking into a sweat as he dispatched his Serbian opponent in double-quick time.

"Of course in that moment, that final has been a very important step forward for me in my career", he told a press conference at Wimbledon on Saturday.

Federer is set to open his title defense against Dusan Lajovic of Serbia on Centre Court on Monday, breaking another record in the process.
