Nike is clothing our Top 4 WTA stars, two of which have already clinched titles in the first week of January. I have shown you the Nike clothes that Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams will wear at the 2014 Australian Open, but now that more than two weeks have passed since then, I have more information about the outfits, plus, thanks to Tennis Identity, I have information about what Victoria Azarenka and Li Na will work in Melbourne.
Here’s how Maria looks in her new kit, the surprising combination of a tunic and shorts, officially called Nike Women’s Spring Premier Maria Tunic Dress. The color of the tunic is called “glacier ice”. The more I look at it, the more I admire Maria for the fashion risks she takes. I’m sure this one will turn out to be a hit! Her shoes will be a NikeID version of the Zoom Vapor 9 Tour.
Of the three kinds of the Nike Women’s Spring 1 Serena OZ Open Dress, Williams will most probably wear the pink one. It will sure look good on her, as it is a safe choice, simply the continuation of her similar styles from last year.
Victoria Azarenka will try to defend her title in the above Nike Women’s Spring 1 Advantage Print Tank, a matching Pleated Woven Skort and the new Lunar Ballistec shoes. Nice combo, again something we’re used to seeing Vika in – lively and sporty separates.
Last year’s Australian Open runner-up Li Na will also stay true to her favorite type of outfit – a V-neck cap sleeve top and a skirt, this time in magenta.
What do you think of the 2014 Australian Open Nike apparel? My favorite outfit is Masha’s, for the novelty it brings.
