Wimbledon may be the most prestigious tournament, but the US Open steals the top position when it comes to tennis fashion. We have already talked about Nike’s leopard print for Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova’s futuristic tunic, but let’s see what the leading brand created for those favoring a more classic style, perfectly represented by Victoria Azarenka.
Having withdrawn from this week’s Cincinnati due to a right knee injury sustained back in June, at Wimbledon, Vika is expecting to make a healthy return at the US Open and according to Nike’s promo image she will do so in this Nike Women’s Fall Premier Sleeveless Polo, black shorts and Nike Lunar Ballistec Grey/Cobalt shoes.
The polo features racer back and perforated fabric at collar, back, and upper chest. Vika will wear the deep royal blue version, while there is also a similar color-block fuchsia one, and three single-color versions (black, white and fuchsia).
While Vika is wearing shorts in the promo image, the presentation of her collection features the graphic Nike Women’s Fall Victory Printed Pleat Skirt, so it is possible that those of you who prefer seeing the Belarusian in shorts will be disappointed.
Let’s now quickly go through Nike’s promo pics of Serena and Maria.
As you certainly know by now, Serena’s day dress will be this pink statement piece officially called the Nike Women’s Fall Serena Dress, which currently sells at the price of $80.
Avoiding a subtle look this time, Serena’s wristbands will also include the pink leopard print.
At night, the five-time US Open champion will wear a black and white version of the dress. The solid black dress you can see in the image above will be worn by Maria Sharapova’s under the lights (I still can’t find the dress available for purchase, but I found a similar tank – Nike Women’s Fall Premier Maria Tank).
During the day the Russian will sport her landmark Nike Women’s Fall Maria Day Tunic, currently available for $120.
