A month ago we got hints about what Nike designed for Maria Sharapova’s and Serena Williams’ French Open 2014 campaigns, but we’ve waited for a long time to see the official promo photos and the champions in their new clothes. Nike has finally launched the Roland Garros campaign, including Victoria Azarenka’s apparel as well!
Just like at the Australian Open, Maria Sharapova will wear the Nike Women’s Summer Maria Premier French Tunic, which will probably be longer and more like a dress than in the photo above. The tunic features modified racerback with two almost parallel straps and most of the fabric is perforated for breathability. The colors are light pink and orange, or if you prefer the fancy version of the colors, the item is officially: pink glaze with atomic orange and metallic red bronze.
Sharapova will also wear the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour shoe.
Serena Williams will sport the Nike Women’s Summer Novelty Knit Dress with scoop neck, open back, waist-defining band and knit jacquard skirt. The dress doesn’t have a built-in bra, so you can choose your support of preference (Serena will certainly go for a Berlei bra). The dress is also available in navy, as I had shown you before, and Serena may wear it at night matches.
The flirty skirt of the dress is not my style, but it may look lively and fun on Serena.
The outfit is a mix of a modern take on the tennis polo and a printed skort in geranium. Other available colors of the skort are turbo green, dark base grey and bright grape, all with matte silver touches, while there is also a white skort with venom green details. Azarenka will wear Nike Lunar Ballistec shoes.
Who will be dressed the best at the 2014 French Open? I love Azarenka’s polo, I expect Serena’s dress to work well for her, while Sharapova’s style is my least favorite this time.
More French Open fashion: Ana Ivanovic will wear this navy Adidas dress, while Jelena Jankovic will play in Fila Women’s Spring Heritage Mitered Stripe Dress.
