We’ve had so many clothing sponsor changes at the start of the 2018 season that it’s hard to even take note and the latest one is the news that Sloane Stephens, who won the 2017 US Open wearing Under Armour, is now officially endorsing NikeCourt.
The American world No.13 announced the news on Twitter, posting the above pic and saying:
I am so excited to share with you all that I have officially joined the NikeCourt family!!!
The 24-year-old Sloane will officially launch her cooperation with Nike at the upcoming Sydney International, a Premier-level tournament she’ll play for the first time.
I’m not sure what to think about this clothing sponsor switch. I don’t doubt that Sloane will look great in NikeCourt, but now she’s just one of a slew of players wearing Swoosh, while she was unique with Under Armour and they always made dresses that beautifully complemented both her physique and her complexion. Look at these two examples from 2017. What’s your take on this WTA fashion update?
