Women’s Tennis Blog is your go-to place when it comes to female tennis fashion, so there’s no way we’ll skip overviewing what our most elite WTA players were wearing this week at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals in Singapore. The season-ending Championships are not exactly a tennis Fashion Week, as opposed to Grand Slams where all the brands are competing to attract attention with innovative, high-performance clothing, but the very nature of the WTA Finals and its mind-blowing prize money of $6,500,000 certainly inspire tennis apparel producers to showcase their designs in the best light.
Let’s see now which clothes our WTA stars chose to fight for the prestigious title.
Canadian Eugenie Bouchard is part of the Sharapova Nike family and she was wearing the Winter Premier Maria Tank, which combines a lightweight woven fabric in front and stretch knit fabric on back, and a matching skirt with heathered panels on sides. The world No.5’s shoe is the turquoise Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour .
Top-ranked Serena Williams was also working the Nike blues. The American fired Singapore up in the Winter Burnout Tunic, featuring a subtle cheetah print on back, while her fist-pumping towards the title was adorned with black and white cheetah wristbands. Romanian world No.4 Simona Halep was making her WTA Finals debut in the glossy black Adidas Fall Adizero Tank and a coordinating skirt with glittery elastic waistband, while her stride towards the final was cushioned in the Adidas Adizero CC Tempaia III in pink.
Just like her Romanian colleague, Ana Ivanovic is representing Adidas’ Adizero line, although the Serb was wearing the well-known dress from the fall collection. Her Adidas Adizero CC Tempaia III shoes are in the refreshing mint.
White Group’s Agnieszka Radwanska was the only one sporting a colorful print in her
Lotto Women’s Maddy Dress Butterflies with adjustable tank straps. The Pole stepped into the semifinals in white/yellow Raptor Ultra IV Speed shoes which feature the Syn-Pulse cushioning in the midsole that helps with explosive movement.
Petra Kvitova wore the Nike Women’s Winter Advantage Print Polo with subtle dots and the dusty cactus Winter Woven Pleat Skirt. The Czech’s shoes of choice are Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour Turquoise/Volt.
Maria Sharapova‘s Singapore combo was the same as the above-shown Bouchard’s, just in different color – the Russian wore an ivory Nike tank and a grey skirt with hyper punch waistband. This outfit can nicely be paired with the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour Hyper Punch/Ash shoes, although I can’t find the exact ones Masha is wearing.
Caroline Wozniacki was displaying her excellent form in the well-known Stella McCartney’s collection recognized for its asymmetrical ruffles and nude colors. The item the Dane wore in Singapore is the Barricade NY Dress, while the shoes are Adidas Stella Barricade 8 Poppy Pink.
My favorite outfit of the bunch is Ivanovic’s black dress paired with mint shoes, but I also like Serena’s blue dress with non-intrusive cheetah print and Kvitova’s wonderful blue polo. Who tops your WTA fashion rankings?
