The US Open is approaching and it’s time for reviewing what tennis stars will be wearing at the final Grand Slam of the season. The most famous brands, Adidas and Nike, are always the first to grab attention, so let’s see what they have prepared for their biggest names.
Ana Ivanovic has been sporting a beautiful blue Adidas Fall Adizero Dress and at the US Open the 23-year-old Serb will wear the same dress, only in pink, or as they officially call it, in “sharp red”. The dress has an open back and a delicate design on torso.
Serena Williams will finally give credit to her Nike clothes at a major and her two recent victories at Premier-level events will insure she pays back to all the time Nike made an outfit for her even though she didn’t play a tournament.
Serena has two dresses for the 2011 US Open. During the day she will wear Autumn Smash Hard Court Dress in red, and for night matches she is expected to wear the blue version.
Maria Sharapova is also equipped for both day and night. The 2006 US Open champion has a Maria Ace Day Dress in gray and light purple with fluorescent red linings. Sharapova’s night dress is not the same as the day one just with a darker color scheme, the style is compatible but different.
Li Na‘s two-piece outfit has similar colors to Serena’s day dress. The Chinese will wear a red Autumn Smash Classic Top and ironstone Fall Smash Pleated Skort.
Victoria Azarenka will sport an intensive blue dress officially called Nike Fall Set Point Knit Dress.
This time I’m excited to see what Ellesse will have in store for Galina Voskoboeva. The Kazakh attracted a lot of attention with her run to the quarterfinals of the Rogers Cup, but also with her Ellesse dress (she is a much better representative of Ellesse than Nadia Petrova).
What do you think of the outfits? I’m not crazy for any of them, but I can single out Sharapova’s night dress. I like the graphite tones. I love Ivanovic’s Adidas dress, but I prefer the blue one.
