Speculations have been swirling around for days that these are the dresses Nike's headliners Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams will wear at the 2014 Australian Open. We still don't have a definite confirmation, so we'll take it with a grain of salt, but here are the previews of designs we're expecting the champions to wear in Melbourne.
Sharapova is introducing shorts? Very unexpected choice for the Russian. It would be a much more natural option for Vika Azarenka. By the way, the outfit is sooo similar to Serena's Australian Open 2008, when she paired long purple shorts with white dress.
UPDATE: It's been confirmed that Maria will wear the above outfit and now you can already buy it at Tennis Warehouse.
In the above photos are Nike dresses intended for Serena. The cut is absolutely similar to what we're used to seeing the American in: V-necks, thick straps and feminine skirts. My overview of her 2013 Nike dresses proves that. We're all hoping that the black version of the dress is reserved for night matches or for later in the season, otherwise, Serena might melt away her famous curves. Serena's dresses are also available at Tennis Warehouse.
Thank you, Tennis BG, for sending me the images!
