Roger Federer was upset relatively early at last year’s event; can he recapture his 2009 crown by winning this year at Wimbledon?

After falling out in the semis at this year’s Australian Open, Roger Federer is currently not the defending champion at any grand slam. It’s staggering to think that this breaks a streak dating back to July 2003, and yet more proof that were he to spontaneously combust or otherwise drop off the face of the earth, the Swiss Maestro is the greatest post-Sampras player and a serious contender for the GOAT. Will Federer be able to regain his championship form later this year? A win at the French Open seems unlikely with Rafael Nadal practically owning Roland Garros but there’s no doubt Fed’s footwear game is in order for another Grand Slam run. Here’s a new Nike Lunar Vapor 8 Tour colorway in black with lime accents, the type of exuberant color scheme you’d expect to see at the Aussie or maybe later this year at the US Open. Click through to get a better look at this new colorway and grab yours today from RMKStore.
Color: Black/White-Neo Lime-Metallic Silver
