The deal was reportedly struck after UNIQLO offered him more than $300 million over 10 years, even if he doesn't continue to play for that long.
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.
The top seed, however, was wearing Nike footwear as Uniqlo does not manufacture shoes.
"I'm very happy, I felt good from the start too which was nice and that was not the case past year against him".
During last month's grasscourt event in Halle, Federer confirmed his deal with Nike had expired in March but he kept his arrangement with Uniqlo firmly under wraps until Monday.
Roger Federer boosted his bank balance by a reported $446 million on Monday night, marking his 20th straight Wimbledon appearance with a new clothing deal.
While his game is flawless to the tee, the tennis star recently recalled an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction episode during his 2007 Wimbledon win and even went on to call it his funniest moment in tennis. They featured his "RF" logo, the London skyline and the number "8, ' signifying his record number of Wimbledon titles, embossed in gold".
"Yes, they want a watch, a vehicle, a racket, a shirt, they can have it all at this point", Federer said. It's also something that was very important for me, for the fans really. She lost her footing and tumbled at one point. In a short period of time, it will come to me.
"The tougher balance, for me, is to be able to spend time away from my son and be OK with taking, sometimes, time for myself, which is a struggle sometimes, because I really want to spend every second with him", said Azarenka, who faces No. 7 seed Karolina Pliskova next.
The Williams siblings aren't playing doubles in this tournament, the way they did at Roland Garros, and that's a good thing for Mom: It gives her more time with her child. Interestingly enough, Federer was still wearing Nike sneakers during his match.
