Andrea Petkovic: overview of 2011 Adidas Barricade clothes


Another fashion retrospection, another first-time honor. Women’s Tennis Blog’s apparel overviews date back to 2007 and on Sunday I featured Nike representative Petra Kvitova for the first time. Now let’s have a look at one more hot player of 2011, new Top 10 member – Adidas-clad Andrea Petkovic.

We opened this season’s fashion retrospections with Caroline Wozniacki and Adidas by Stella McCartney, but let’s check out a more sporty Adidas – the colorful Barricade.

Petkovic opened the season with a runner-up finish to Petra Kvitova at Brisbane in an all-pink ensemble, and continued it by reaching the Australian Open quarterfinals switching two outfits from the Barricade line which was all about the refreshing green and red, and white. Have a look at my 2011 Australian Open fashion focus, Justine Henin and Maria Kirilenko also looked great wearing the line.

As you can see, for the most part of the season the world No.10 Petkovic was wearing the red, green and white collection, constantly moving back and forth from tanks to V-neck shirts to collars and combining them with all the available skirts.

When this Barricade collection was introduced I was super excited, because a lot of players were wearing it and it added so much color to the sunny tennis courts.

Later in the season Adidas continued with colors, this time pink and blue, and once again there were tanks, polos and regular short-sleeve shirts.

For Wimbledon the brand went for white with pink and blue details.

Adidas hit the mark with all the 2011 Barricade collections. The colors were refreshing and there was a rich variety of designs – skirts, shorts, tanks, tops, polos – for everyone’s taste.

We already know what the line will look at the beginning of 2012. Andrea is featured in a video launching new Adidas Barricade 7.0 shoes, wearing new purple, light blue and red clothes.

What do you think of Andrea Petkovic’s style? Do you like the Adidas Barricade line?

  1. What’s here not to like? It’s sporty and in cool colours. 😀 I like how Andrea often changes outfits, mixing different colours, it’s a lot more refreshing than seeing her in 1 outfit for like 3 months. 🙂 And my favourite is the white from the AO.

  2. It’s hard to pick a favorite, all the outfits are great. Actually, I’m not such a fan of collars in this line, so I prefer tanks and regular shirts. Shorts are also nice, just as skirts – Andrea wore shorts in doubles with Ivanovic.

  3. Personally I almost love all the outfits, except for the ones with the contrasting color in the middle of the front side.. But that’s just my humble opinion 🙂

    It’s so good to see Petko wear all the different color variations. It gives a good impression of the possibilities and for Adidas it’s a living advertisement 🙂

    Marija, too bad Venus didn’t play so much… now we haven’t seen her latest outfits 🙁

  4. white and green polo and pink and green skirt! I have also that outfit and everyone likes it! It’s so cool 🙂

  5. Liz, Venus may have played few tournaments, but she showed many outfits. Her retrospection is next! 😉

    Brenda, the pink from the outfit you have looks red (although, in the specifications I see it is pink). To me, pink is the US Open outfit.

  6. Alrighty Marija! Can’t wait 😉
    And you’re right.. as I typed my post I was thinking about her outfits and I came a long way.. 😛
