The competition is heating up in Melbourne, and Nike athletes Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams are still going strong—showcasing not only their remarkable tennis abilities but their latest Nike collections as well.
Federer has been dominating on the court in the Nike Premier RF Men’s Tennis Polo ($90), Nike All-Court Twill Men’s Tennis Shorts ($55) and Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour Men’s Tennis Shoe ($130). The polo is made of breathable Dri-FIT UV fabric—ideal for hot, sunny days—with laser-perforated holes under the zippered chest placket for breathability and an RF logo on the sleeve. The All-Court Twill shorts offer generous coverage, side slit pockets for ball storage and an elastic waist with drawcord. For a glove-like fit plus stability and responsive cushioning, the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour is Federer’s shoe of choice.
The Nike Premier Maria Women’s Tennis Dress ($130) is one of the styles Sharapova is sporting Down Under. This winning combination of performance features and feminine style boasts Dri-FIT fabric and mesh insets at the chest and back to help keep sweat at bay, while the racerback and elastic straps allow for unhindered swings. Sharapova also wears the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour Shoe ($130).
Serena’s Nike Pleated Knit Tennis Dress ($90) offers bold style, with a built-in bra for support and mesh panels for breathability. The pretty pleated hem adds style and freedom to move. The perfect pre- or post-match complement is the Nike Brushed Half-Zip Women’s Hoodie ($65), a lightweight layer combining breathability and warmth.
Of course, the best thing about the Australia Athlete Collections is that they’re available to all of us who love and play the sport.
