Fila’s Wimbledon collection honors career of Kim Clijsters

Wilson Blade v7 tennis racquet

This Wimbledon is Kim Clijsters‘ last and her clothing sponsor Fila dedicated her entire Wimbledon kit to her illustrious career. This limited-edition apparel and accessory collection features a short sleeve v-neck cap sleeve top, sleeveless top, matching white skort, white jacket and pant, as well as a bag, visor and handband as accessories. Each item has metallic gold details.

Clijsters is grateful to Fila:

It means so much to me that Fila developed this commemorative collection in honor of my retirement. Wimbledon has been an important place for me since I was very young, and it was where I played my first exhibition before I officially returned to tennis in 2009. It is only fitting that I debut this collection on Centre Court.

The 29-year-old Belgian will retire after the US Open, and Wimbledon is the only major where she hasn’t reached the final, so she’ll be especially inspired this year. Her next match-up is against fellow veteran Vera Zvonareva in the third round. (source: Slice, photo: Iron Run)
