Roger Federer could stop wearing Nike soon, according to the Times, with Uniqlo positioned to step in as his new clothing sponsor.
A veteran journalist writing for the Italian sports website said no agreement has been reached to renew Federer's contract with Nike, which was rumored to be $10 million a year when originally signed. There is speculation in British tabloids that Uniqlo is offering $30 million a year to Federer.
The Japanese clothing company also sponsors Kei Nishikori, a contract renewed in 2016 for $10 million annually. It also sponsored Novak Djokovic until 2017, and is involved in wheelchair tennis.
