Wimbledon 2011…it’s almost here! In addition to action-packed, grass-court tennis, we love to discover what the top dogs are wearing. What sorts of bright and trendy whites are in store for us this year? Take a sneak-peek at some of the new Nike styles fashioned for the tennis elite!
2011 Pre-Wimbledon Nike Fashion Review
Following an injury that took her out of the first few 2011 Grand Slams, Serena Williams returns to tennis at Wimbledon sporting this clean, crisp Smash Lawn tennis dress by Nike. Created specifically for her, this classic white dress features simple lines with obsidian accents. We love the nautically-inspired style, great fit and the light and comfortable fabric – classic and cool!
It appears that Maria Sharapova will wear this Nike Dri-FIT, stretch jersey dress featuring bonded, front seams and metallic bronze accents. While the Maria Ace Lawn Dress is pretty and functional with a built-in bra, it is reminiscent of her Sony-Ericsson dress, and we find the bronze detailing on both a touch distracting.
Some girls adore their separates and we adore these Wimbledon whites chosen by Li Na, French Open Champion! This Nike outfit features comfortable dri-FIT fabric and a classic fit. The cute, Nike Smash Classic pleated skirt offers the perfect amount of detail to keep this style interesting without a lot of distraction. Score: Love-Love!
Viktoria Azarenka will be sporting this plain, gathered Nike tank dress. While this outfit appears to be cool and comfortable in dri-FIT fabric, it is borderline- boring. We recommend some cute accessories for a little extra spice!
Roger Federer will be looking to win his 17th title dressed in brand-new apparel created specifically for him by Nike. The RF Trophy Lawn Polo and Trophy Woven Taped Short perfectly echoes the Fed’s cool and collected – just a shade dull - demeanor. Components like Dri-FIT technology and polyester stretch-knit jersey fabric with UV protection should keep him comfortable on court. The embossed, Swiss-cross pattern on the shirt is a clever detail, but invisible from even a short distance.
