The match wear is not only really comfortable, but also highly-functional. It is stretchy, and quickly absorbs perspiration, so that I can focus on my game.

The collection, modelled on his imminent tournament kit, will launch exclusively in the UK on Tuesday 18 June at 7pm*. Novak Djokovic himself will be in the flagship store (311 Oxford Street) to officially unveil the collection and meet and greet fans. *The Wimbledon store will begin selling from 10am on Wednesday 19 June due to trading hours.
The collection launches exclusively in UNIQLO 311 Oxford Street, UNIQLO Wimbledon, and online from 7pm a week before the tournament starts and Djokovic himself will be wearing it on court.
UNIQLO has been the exclusive designer of tournament match wear for Novak Djokovic since he became a UNIQLO Global Brand Ambassador in May 2012. Starting with the 2012 French Open, Novak Djokovic has now competed at all four Grand Slam tournaments wearing match wear created by UNIQLO, including his recent triumph at the 2013 Australian Open. UNIQLO Design Director Naoki Takizawa worked extremely closely with Novak Djokovic to develop tennis apparel that matches his uncompromising standards of performance excellence.
The limited edition collection features wristbands, socks, polo shirts, shorts, track jackets and pants, with prices starting from £7.90 for socks, £19.90 for polo shirts, and £49.90 for the track jacket.
On all of his matchwear collections, Novak Djokovic commented:
"Complementing their functionality and comfort, the designs for all of the match wear are inspired by the different venues for the Grand Slam tournaments I have played so far.
"For France 2013, the bright peppermint green created a striking contrast against Roland Garros’ red clay, and created a real presence on the court. At the same time, for the UK, the Wimbledon model is a simple white. I played a role in helping develop them, and really like both.
"The match wear is the result of extensive discussions with UNIQLO design director Mr. Takizawa, and his team. It has been really exciting and fun working with them, and I appreciate their effort in making my vision a reality.
"The match wear is not only really comfortable, but also highly-functional. It is stretchy, and quickly absorbs perspiration, so that I can focus on my game."
