Nike officially launches Maria Sharapova’s French Open 2015 look

Having seen the 2015 French Open designs of cutting-edge Adidas Y-3 and Adidas by Stella McCartney, Venus Williams’ romantic yet sexy EleVen, Lacoste‘s blend of modern and traditional, Lotto‘s venture into the disco world, as well as Fila‘s collections entitled Goddess and Spirit, everyone’s eagerly been waiting for the biggest brand Nike to show what they’ve prepared for the claycourt Grand Slam and today that day has finally come. In this post I’ll show you the clothes of Maria Sharapova, which are now already available both at Tennis Warehouse US and Tennis Warehouse Europe.

The five-time Grand Slam champ Sharapova will try to defend the ultimate claycourt trophy wearing the navy and white Nike Summer Maria Paris Tunic that features French Breton-inspired stripes on the sides, mesh waistband, T-back design and micro-pleat skirt.

But let me tell you, even though Nike is promoting the Paris Tunic as Maria’s official dress for the upcoming Roland Garros, I received insider information that it is possible that Maria could even wear something else when she steps on the court, since this retail item is too short. You know Maria is no stranger to last-minute clothing switches!

Masha’s Paris shoes are these NikeCourt Zoom Vapor 9 Tour x Colette, which have the Russian’s quote stitched into the liner: “I am not the next anyone, I am the first Maria Sharapova”. Neat!

    I think this could be a rather pretty outfit in a “french” kind of way, but I do not like the white shorts under this VERY short skirt. I would prefer them in the same colour as the skirt (which could be a bit longer as well, especially on Maria).

  2. sabey

    I second Claire -nice outfit but the short showing under the skirt is not appealing.

    Wow, the tank is built like the navy one Bouchard wore at the us open 2014, and then combined with Lacoste’s blue skirt. And then somehow, I’m also thinking of Bencic’s yonex look, haha. Not completely original, but still really pretty! I’m glad Nike is stepping it up and trying to be more fashionable 🙂
    The outfit for Azarenka looks like Heather Watson’s new balance looks, if they play, it might be hard to tell them apart

    I definitely saw this outfit on tennis forum in the past 2 years. I think this was supposed to be her us open
    dress ( i believe it was used in Japanese nike stores) . But If maria can make her skirt bit longer to make that white shorts disappear, this outfit would look great at FO imo.,

    I actually like the design of this dress. It reminds me of cheerleaders. The color scheme is also balanced although the length of the dress might be an issue. When I saw the ad yesterday, I fell in love with it. It’s really a fashion hit for me in RG.

    Maria is gonna be a sailor moon at the french open 🙂
    I love the outfit, never seen Maria in white at Roland Garros before.

  7. kueyseyra

    This is good actually but my mind still at Ivanovic’s dress. So far Ivanovic still a champion in fashion column.

    This is the worst outfit i have seen in the tennis world,what is wrong with nike,look at Maria’s short,Nike is playing games with Maria’s mind, please lets see what they have to offer for Serena. Why is Nike favouring Serena as far as the outfits are concerned,Serena had the best outfit in AO,is it that they fear Serena?.

    Kate, Serena is No.1 player, that’s definitely a good enough reason. But actually, this time Nike still hasn’t revealed Serena’s kit. Very strange! I heard that they prepared something and then dropped it from the offer. Now they’ll probably make a last-minute decision about Serena’s outfit.

  10. Mary

    Personally I find Maria’s RG dress really beautiful and she looks awesome in the picture. I hope she’s going to wear it, maybe in a personalised slightly longer version.

  11. Nigelahmad

    @Kate I think that Nike actually favors Maria, despite Serena being number one. Additionally there Serena and Maria have two totally different bodies. Some outfits and colors may look more appealing on one than the other. But, in general Maria has the more expensive dresses and they include her name in the dress names.

    Nigelahmad, I agree with you that Maria is actually Nike’s No.1. Maria has her own Nike collection and the reason for that is that she’s the biggest fashionista among tennis players.

  13. lisa marney

    i think maria looks stunning in all her outfits shes pure class. her roland .garros dress is beautiful shes the best dressed on tour with the best figure. wish you all the best maria please win roland garros again.

    Hey you can see her wearing this dress in new Head commercial and skirt is a lot longer than what is shown in promotional pics and it looks quite good on her

    Sru, she may just wear the longer version of the design. We’ll see today!
