Is the 2011 U.S. Open a must-win for Roger Federer? He certainly has his work cut out for him, as the worst-case scenario for the Swiss tennis player has him facing the #1 ranked Novak Djokovic in the Semi-Finals and #2 ranked Rafael Nadal in the Finals. If Federer can’t pull out this Major win, it would halt his streak of nine straight seasons of winning at least one Major tournament, but even if he falls short, that won’t take away from the greatness and other-worldly mystique that Federer has built over the last decade. Nike’s already got 2012 in its sights for Roger, as it plans to outfit him in the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 SL; it features an all-new tech-package, opting for lightweight and breathable materials, a unique upper that allows for maximum flexion, and Nike Zoom for supreme comfort. Accompanying the Zoom Vapor Tour 9 SL is the Nike RF Smash Clay Polo, which should keep Roger cool and composed during his matches.
