It’s New York tennis fashion time! US Open always rocks, let’s see all the 2015 styles.


Grand Slam fashion overviews are my favorite and there’s no better place for stylish tennis apparel than the US Open, so grab a long coffee or a big healthy snack and enjoy this extensive overview of dresses that (have) adorned the courts in Flushing Meadows. 

Serena Williams night dress

Nike catered to Serena Williams‘ love of animal prints, matching her fierce on-court personality with the powerful NikeCourt Premier Dress, which is part of the unique Greatness Collection created to celebrate the American’s quest for her first Calendar Slam, one of rare milestone she is yet to achieve. The open back and sexy print ensure that the dress will stay in our memory for the long time to come, while it could have been a size or two larger, as we could’ve seen less of her shorts.

During day matches, Serena sports the peach version of the dress.

Kristina Mladenovic, Simona Halep, Ana Ivanovic at the 2015 US Open

Ana Ivanovic got knocked out in the first round, so we didn’t see much of her maroon and solar red handprinted Adidas dress, but it’s not that the new Adidas collection stayed poorly promoted, as Kristina Mladenovic, Simona Halep, and others have worn the Adidas Fall Adizero Tank and the matching skirt available in the two mentioned colors and in yellow.

Day 4 said goodbye to Caroline Wozniacki, who fell to Petra Cetkovska in an intense three-setter, while Garbine Muguruza lost on the same day, in what was the longest match in New York since the introduction of the tiebreak almost half a century ago. The Dane and the Spaniard can find a bit of consolation in the fact that they looked stylish in new Stella’s collection, which plays with neutral-toned color-blocks. Wozniacki rocked the Adidas Winter Stella McCartney Dress, while Muguruza looked even better in the Adidas Winter Stella McCartney Tank and its matching skort.

When it comes to footwear, both had these Stella Barricade 2015 Yellow Glow shoes, whose laces glow in the dark.

Petra Kvitova also enjoyed glowing kicks, the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour Hot Lava/Gold. The Czech’s outfit consisted of the Nike Fall Slam Printed Breathe Tank, which I reviewed in detail on Eugenie Bouchard prior to the tournament, and the pleated skirt, while Victoria Azarenka paired the same tank with the super cool Nike Fall Court Short, its contrasting volt lining matching her bright shoes. The tank turned its back against Vika and the Belarusian had to wear armands to protect her blisters, while other players didn’t report such problems.

Venus Williams found inspiration in kaleidoscope for her latest print and the V-neck and central white V-shaped block are references to the first letter of her name. Of course, the brand is EleVen and here you have a closer look at the dress.

Fila‘s top two representatives Jelena Jankovic and Julia Goerges both lost in the first round, but to ensure its wider reach the company welcomed a new player to the family, American Jamie Loeb, who publicized the cooperation in her round-one match against Caroline Wozniacki. The Fila US Open items are from the new Platinum collection which combines black, white and teal piranha. JJ eventually chose the blue version of the Fila Fall Platinum Dress, while Goerges paired her Fila Fall Platinum Asymmetrical Tank with the blue asymmetrical skirt, which was a much better combo than the one in her promo pic where the skirt was black.

Agniesza Radwanska

Agnieszka Radwanska was among many ladies in red, but her Lotto Fall Victoria Dress stood out with its lingerie-inspired lace.

Stephens at the 2015 US Open

Sloane Stephens lost in round one and while her opponent Coco Vandeweghe ensured that the match would forever remain in history books for its first ever mid-match interview, Sloane showed us how fierce crop tops can look and how well they can be included in a tennis outfit. This Under Armour ensemble gets all the highest marks and I’m sure it will inspire designers to plunge into the world of crop tops.

Heather Watson - US Open 2015Elina Svitolina - US Open 2015

Heather Watson waved us goodbye already on Day 1, although her New Balance fashion was in full force. Before the tournament I presented you the Brit’s complete apparel, but let me repeat here that her kit included the New Balance Fall Tournament Racer Tank and the New Balance Fall Tournament Skirt, while the New Balance 996v2 shoes nicely complete the look.

Coincidentally, Elina Svitolina‘s blue tank from the new Ellesse collection slightly resembles Watson’s, while Monica Puig showed the navy version of the outfit.

Dominika Cibulkova, Belinda Bencic - US Open 2015

Lacoste promoted its US Open collection with photos of Alize Cornet and Timea Bacsinszky, but both lost already in round one and Dominika Cibulkova, who had to miss a big part of mid-season due to her Achilles injury, turned out to be the most successful representative of the brand with her third-round appearance at the 2015 US Open. The Slovak was wearing the Technical Jersey Lacoste Sport Tank Top Tennis Dress, a classic look with interesting racerback design.

Sofibella has only recently attracted attention to itself, but now we come across the Sofibella designs more and more, to the point that they seem to be everywhere. The company’s most notable success seems to have coincided with the recent rise of tennis moms Kateryna Bondarenko and Tatjana Maria, although many other players are their endorsers, such as Kaia Kanepi and Tamira Paszek.

Svetlana Kuznetsova was among former US Open champions in the draw, but the Russian exited in the first round for the second straight year and her pink Qiaodan tank paired with a military skirt was unfortunately not making things any better.

Mona Barthel, Alize Lim at the 2015 US Open

Mona Barthel is the ambassador of Denise Cronwall activewear and at the US Open the German showcased items from the girly Catalina collection. Alize Lim didn’t manage to qualify for the US Open, but I tend to feature her in my fashion overviews as I like her unique on-court style. The Parisian was wearing Le Coq Sportif jumpsuit.

Alla day and night

Alla Kudryavtseva is wearing InPhorm and on Twitter she shared these two photos saying how she loves her yin and yang outfit for day and night sessions.

Samantha Stosur wore the hibiscus red version of the Asics Fall Athlete Dress, while Coco Vandeweghe worked the Asics Fall Athlete Tank and the coordinating dark cobalt skirt. The Asics Gel Solution Speed 2 shoes complete the look.

Now that you have all these tennis clothes in one place in front of you, tell me in the comments below which are your favorites! I’ll go for the Stella McCartney separates, as well as Sloane’s crop top with high-waisted skirt.

  1. I think these US Open doesn’t have any hits in fashion.
    I love the two dresses that Maria was gonna worn, but she didn’t playe, so…

  2. Nice review Marija!
    I like Serena’s black dress but agree it does not fit her right. I prefer the separates from Stella over the dress that Caro wore. I think the Sofibella stuff is awful and I always love Vika in shorts.

  3. Was the day time version of Maria’s dress ever released?

    I thought this was a good tournament for fashion, but some of the most interesting outfits (fila, under armor, Alize’s outfit) were knocked out early! I liked Venus’ outfit, as well as the Adidas and Stella looks, and Serena’s dress is so perfect for her. The lotto separates were really pretty, and then Petra looks great in the black Nike, but what the tank did to Vika is not appealing! Ellesse had cute skirts but I like the outfits that they were promoting during the U.S. Open series better

  4. A truly nice review but I agree with Brenda, no style at this year’s US Open. I prefer the Stella dress Wozniacki was wearing to the separates worn by Muguruza (and Penetta, I think) since the colour blocking resembles a bib. I do like, however, the “new” combo by Fila worn by Julia Goerges – looks quite interesting. As does Alizé Lim’s outfit! As for Azarenka’s blisters – sounds really strange… perhaps she is looking for a new sponsor? 🙂

  5. Brenda, Maria’s dress probably would’ve been my favorite. I loved the black and white back-to-basics concept.

    Sabey, thank you! So you agree with me, I also prefer Stella’s separates to the dress and they are lovely. I like Sofibella stuff, especially the purple dress Bondarenko wore just before the US Open. Vika’s kit is very cool, it’s just strange that the tank is bothering her so much, who would’ve thought.

    Ga, no, we’ve never seen Maria’s day dress.

    Claire, I’m glad you like the review, I think I included like 95% of brands, big and small. As for Vika, I suppose she’s not looking for a new sponsor, although she may have to now, since Nike probably didn’t appreciate her statement haha.

  6. for me the best outfits is definitely stella’s seperates. I remember pironkova wearing them a couple of days ago and it looked so good on her ( i think stella should sign her). I wish Adidas would make separate dresses for grandslams. Changing colors of tune up event dresses doesn’t do any good for them imo. While serena’s night dress is great , her day dress colors are same as her FO dress and it eventually kind of became boring to me. Plus I hope sloane plays some indoor events so that she can wear head band and ribbon while playing. I absolutely loved that look

  7. Best: Sloane, Jelena and Julia, Alize, Maria. All interesting and stylish but not fussy.
    Maybe: Stella Macartney stuff (I didn’t like the dress when I saw the promotion pictures but it looks better in action. But still don’t like the wishy-washy pink. And the person who said Flavia’s top looks like a bib is right.), Mona (I do like Denise Cronwell because it is a bit different), Venus (aways good but I don’t think this is as good as some of her previous ones), Serena (it suits her but probably wouldn’t suit many other people), Sofibella (at least colourful and different).
    Worst: Adidas (retire that murky pattern immediately), Quoidian (why are they even bothering?), New Balance and Ellesse (checks really don’t work on a tennis dress).

  8. Love Sloane’s outfit!! Glad to see something different, and it’s to Sloane’s credit that she makes it look classy!
    Serena’s is a classic and probably will be remembered for a long time (more so if she manages to clinch that ubiquitous Calendar slam)!
    Others are quite forgettable, these Nike clothes are all blending into one. Don’t like Adidas as well!

  9. Serena’s night dress was gorg. I love that Vika wears shorts but why doesn’t nike make a pair with shorts so she doesn’t have to keep shoving the balls underneath them? Aga’s dress is pretty but kind of one note color wise. I wish it would’ve had a splash of color somewhere. I really like Sloan’s crop top, it’s classier than the ones that were worn in the early 2000’s. Monica’s top was cute in a preppy way. I don’t know who Alize Lim is but I love the colors of her outfit. I only wish I could see the bottom part.
