In the video, Federer is seen playing tennis and stated, “My mindset on the court is very demanding of myself physically, and mentally, and also my equipment. I always look for the edge and staying dry. DRY-EX gives me that edge. What I expect from my clothes is that they need to be quick-drying, breathable, and extremely comfortable.”

Roger signed with Uniqlo in 2018. He walked on the Centre Court at Wimbledon for his first-round match and displayed his new apparel with the Japanese brand. Since then, the two have worked together on a number of new designs for the various tournaments on Tour.
