sweet 16… a little early?


Via L. Jon Wertheim’s Twitter, we noticed that Nike is betting on Sweet 16 for Roger Federer a little early. The company is selling a collector’s edition tee for fans that are banking on the world’s number one to take the title in New York City next month: “What are the chances he will make it two slams in a row when the US Open rolls around at the end of August ?” the site reads.

While we dig the RF logo on the front of the shirt, we’re not quite sure of the “Sixteen” written on the back. Click the link to see for yourself.

The tees are 100% cotton dri fit and so far, only come in black. And, if you look closely on the linked page, the other apparel UK-base Pro-Direct is pitching on that page belongs to one Mr. Rafael Nadal. TSF loves a little apparel cat-fight when we see one.

    Exactly, Steve & JFK! Altho I’d love it if Roger did win #16, I wouldn’t mind Andy Roddick taking home the trophy this time.

    It’s someone else’s turn to win a slam, please don’t let him parade the ’16’ shirt in NY! I’ve only just rocovered from the ’15’ fashion show at Wimby…
