At the 2010 ATP World Tour finals, World No.2 Roger Federer is wearing a red bandana, a red shirt and black pants which is the same combination that he wore during the 2007 ATP World Tour finals, the last time the Swiss won the season ending event. Does the former World No.1 believe in particular colours bring him luck at different events?

Below is a table comparing Federer’s successes at major events (last three years) and the colour of his shirts.
