Federer gets RF logo back from Nike, two years after moving to Uniqlo

Federer gets RF logo back from Nike, two years after moving to Uniqlo

The delay was to allow the sale of the rest of Nike's Federer apparel.

Roger Federer is again the holder of the RF logo that has been associated with his clothing for most of his career.

Federer has not used the logo on his shirts since switching clothing companies two years ago, when he began wearing Uniqlo in an agreement rumored at $30 million annually. The logo was still licensed to his previous apparel company, Nike, whose shoes he still wears even though they have no official sponsorship agreement.

Neither Federer or Uniqlo have indicated whether they plan to use the logo now it has been authorized. The delay was to allow the sale of the rest of Nike's Federer apparel.

The No. 4-ranked Federer is off the tour following knee surgery and is scheduled to start play again during the grasscourt season.
