Nike Tennis is launching a new line of custom tennis apparel and shoes for its roster of elite players as they bid for Grand Slam glory on the red clay of Roland Garros starting May 25.
Rafael Nadal, who is chasing an incredible 9th French Open title, will wear a striking 'polarized blue' crew, jacket and shorts. The crew features Nike Dri-FIT fabric panels that will keep Nadal dry and comfortable as he chases history. His great rival Roger Federer's Nike Tennis apparel includes a cover-up made from Dri-FIT sweater knit fabric, providing breathability and comfort in an elegant silhouette that perfectly complements Federer's style on and off the court.
Defending women's champion Serena Williams' gear includes an elasticized waistband that provides a smooth, secure fit, allowing Williams to move freely and dominate the court.
Russian bombshell Maria Sharapova will wear a special Nike Premier Maria French Dress that blurs the line between a dress and a tank. Her Belarusian rival Victoria Azarenka will take to the court wearing Nike Lunar Ballistec tennis shoes, which deliver faster speed to the ball along with great cushioning and control.
