Roger Federer's long-term apparel deal with Nike is done.

The defending champion gave his headband to a young female fan in the crowd after completing a straight-sets win in the first round of the Grand Slam tournament - and joked he could be giving away a lot more before the fortnight is over.

As easy as the match was, it marked a landmark of sorts given it was Federer's first since the end of his sponsorship with Nike. To that, Federer replied, "Yes, they want a watch, a auto, a racket, a shirt, they can have it all at this point", Federer said.

Federer racked up nine game victories in a row and, before he knew it, Lajovic was 6-1 3-0 down and wilting in the south-west London sunshine.

Roger Federer stepped onto Wimbledon's Centre Court on Monday in an outfit by Japanese high-street clothing brand Uniqlo, marking his official split from Nike after almost two decades.

Eight-time champion Roger Federer breezed into the Wimbledon second round on Monday with a 6-1, 6-3, 6-4 win over Serbia's Dusan Lajovic.

Lars Klevberg ( Polaroid ) is set to direct the horror reboot from a script written by Tyler Burton ( Kung Fury 2 ) for MGM. Production is slated to begin this September, with filming taking place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The tennis star donned the Japanese brand at his Wimbledon match on Monday, but for now has kept his Nike shoes. "In the US Open, a little bit less, but still knowing better than here", he added.

Of the new generation Alexander Zverev is seeded fourth but it is Australian Nick Kyrgios who looks the most likely to make an impression on the Wimbledon lawns.

Cilic made four service breaks in a match lasting one hour and 45 minutes on Court Two against the 22-year-old left-hander Nishioka, who returned to action in March after major knee surgery last year.

To put his new deal with Uniqlo even further into perspective, Federer has earned $116m over the course of his 20-year career as a professional.

The Spaniard reaches the quarter-final at Wimbledon in 2005, 2008 and 2011. The Serb is now a brand ambassador for Lacoste.

"Yeah, so the RF logo is with Nike at the moment, but it will come to me at some point". Former world number one Novak Djokovic had previously been sponsored by them.

"I was excited to wear Uniqlo today", the 20-time Grand Slam victor said after his match on Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported. It's a long-awaited return for American player Serena Williams, who hasn't competed on the grass court since 2016, after she took time off for the birth of her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian. "I felt very good out there".
