He will have another outfit too, which consists of a white t-shirt with dark green color on the edge of his sleeves on both hands. He will also feature wearing the Uniqlo cap, which includes a white and green shaded cap. Surprisingly, only the cap will have the ‘RF’ logo featured on it and not on the t-shirts. There are rumors that Federer will have to wait until Wimbledon to sport the logo again. 

Federer is the most successful player at the Doha Open, winning the tournament previously on three occasions in 2005, 2006, and 2011. The event is played on hard courts in an outdoor environment. The tournament will be played from the 8th of march and will end on the 13th of the month.
