Last year Swiss professional tennis player Roger Federer inked a monumental deal with Uniqlo upon leaving Nike. Speculation quickly rose surrounding Federer's signature "RF" logo that appeared on his Nike products. The 37-year-old athlete previously claimed the logo was his, and it was expected that Uniqlo would adopt the "RF" branding. Now according to Swiss newspaper 20 Minuten, we find out that Uniqlo will not be acquiring Federer's "RF" logo after all.

Federer's deal with Nike lapsed in March of 2019, freeing his "RF" branding for Uniqlo to adopt. According to Uniqlo spokesperson Aldo Liguori, the company has no plans to acquire the logo from Nike, however.

Last year at Wimbledon, the eight-time winner said, “The 'RF' logo is with Nike at the moment, but it will come to me at some point. I hope rather sooner than later, that Nike can be nice and helpful in the process to bring it over to me. It’s also something that was very important for me, for the fans. They are my initials. They are mine. The good thing is it’s not theirs forever. In a short period of time, it will come to me.”

There are seemingly no hard feelings between Federer and Nike, though, as the tennis great continues to wear Nike footwear for his matches.
