The WTA Championships is where the best of the best players and big bucks are, but regarding tennis fashion, all eyes are on Grand Slams. Still, let’s see what the elite worked on the courts of the $6,000,000 event. Five out of eight players in the singles field wore Nike, while the remaining three were in Fila, Adidas and Lotto.
Serena Williams finished off a dominant year by capturing her fourth WTA Championships title. The outfit that accompanied the American to the $2,145,000 champion’s purse, which made her 2013 season the third most profitable in both men’s and women’s tennis, was an ensemble including a light Nike tank with V-neck in front and low cut V on back with contrast strap and a matching Nike Women’s Winter Heathered Woven Skort.
Tournament runner-up was also a representative of Nike. Li Na ensured a No.3 spot in the WTA rankings and the title of the highest-ranked Asian player in tennis history whilst wearing a grey pleated skort and a collar top in the color palette that dominates Nike’s fashion this winter.
Jelena Jankovic enjoyed an excellent week back on top in two orange dresses by her sponsor Fila. One dress was bland orange, while the other one was more dramatic, Fila Women’s Fall Baseline Dress, with slimming color-blocking including pink, and an addition of black and white stripes and side pleats.
Angelique Kerber was working a much-exploited Adidas Fall Adizero Dress, while Petra Kvitova made the semifinals in Nike’s UV Printed Knit Top and a corresponding purple pleated skort.
Victoria Azarenka‘s outfit included a Nike printed racerback tank with a fixed wrap detailing and a raspberry red skort.
Sara Errani worked the same tank as Vika, just the purple version, and the same skort as Kvitova. Agnieszka Radwanska, the only player with no victories during the week, wore a classic Lotto dress.
Had it not been seen a thousand times on numerous players, my favorite style of the WTA Championships would have been Kerber’s Adidas dress, but now I will opt for Serena’s cute sporty skort and a lively tank, while my second best would be the tanks of Azarenka and Errani.
