There is a big diversity in brands that top women’s tennis players are wearing, and in this year’s retrospections we have already covered Fila with Kim Clijsters, adidas by Stella McCartney with Caroline Wozniacki, Yonex with Elena Dementieva, but let’s see how probably the strongest brand out there, Nike, contributed to tennis fashion in 2010 on the example of their highest-ranked representative – Serena Williams.
Serena may have missed the whole second part of the season, and her participation in tournaments was scarce in the first half of the year, but her on-court style and diversity didn’t suffer for that.
Nike had a new dress for Serena’s every tournament, except for the below pink dress which she wore both in Rome and Madrid. The second photo shows Serena’s doubles outfit for Madrid.
I absolutely love all the dresses Serena wore in 2010 – from cuts, colors and details to the way they suited Serena. I like it how the outfits were perfectly adjusted to Serena’s body, the color hues were just perfect, lively and well-matched, and the accompanying details such as headbands were excellent as well.
My favorite would be the marina blue and green Roland Garros dress – the colors are beautiful and the pleating details at the hem are lovely. I was equally impressed by the Wimbledon dress inspired by the strawberries and cream.
All in all, I think that fashion-wise 2010 was Serena’s best year since I started doing these retrospections two years ago (here you check out Serena’s looks from 2008 and 2009). What do you think about Nike and Serena in 2010? (photos: Pan African News Wire File Photos, emmettanderson, Mo8910, Life.com, kay ef)
