Laura Robson was actually the first player whose US Open apparel Nike showcased this August and the Brit was the first WTA star in the brand’s campaign for the final Grand Slam of the season. Having already shown you the dresses prepared for Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova (who has just issued a statement that she’s withdrawing from the tournament!), I’d like to look into Nike’s separates now, as worn by Laura Robson and Eugenie Bouchard.
Robson’s new kit includes the Nike Fall Slam Breathe Tank that can be paired with the Nike Fall Victory Breathe Skirt. The tank is focused on keeping the body cool as its perforated material has a super lightweight and breathable feel. The item is available in two shades of red (ember glow and university red), as well as in black, white and emerald.
Eugenie Bouchard’s outfit is similar, but in includes two colors and a print at back. The Canadian will wear the Nike Fall Slam Printed Breathe Tank, in combination of black and hot lava, which is one of four available options, and it can be paired with the black Nike Fall Victory Breathe Skirt.
Both Robson’s and Bouchard’s clothes are part of the NikeCourt Team group, so it seems that Bouchard is no longer wearing Maria Sharapova’s Nike apparel. Does anyone have more info on this?
If she were in the Sharapova camp this US Open, Bouchard would probably wear the strappy Nike Fall Premier Maria Tank and the coordinating Nike Fall Premier Maria Skirt.
