Sporty femininity: All Jelena Jankovic’s Fila outfits in 2015


It’s Fila fashion time! After reviewing all Serena Williams’ 2015 powerful Nike outfits, Garbine Muguruza’s Adidas by Stella McCartney styles and Agnieszka Radwanska’s absolutely extraordinary year with Lotto, it is my pleasure to make a collage of all Jelena Jankovic‘s dresses in the framework of my annual Fashion Retrospections.

Like most players in Doha, JJ’s outfit included leggings and a jacket, in this case the Fila Spring Platinum 1/4 Zip Top.

Starting at Indian Wells, where she reached the final, followed by Miami and Charleston, and then later Strasbourg, Jankovic wore the pink Fila Spring Glow Dress, pairing it with the Fila Spring Glow 1/2 Zip Jacket, while in Rome the 30-year-old showcased the navy variant of the dress, whose colorblocks are green gecko.

At Roland Garros, as well as at two following grasscourt tournaments, JJ wore the Fila Goddess Dress in sunny lime, although at retail we’ve had available only the black and white versions. This item from the Goddess Collection is characteristic for its cute pleated hem and draping with side ruching.

At Wimbledon, Jankovic could have worn the white version of the above-mentioned Goddess Dress, but Fila created a new model, the Spring Lawn Dress, which is at first glance too simple, but when you look closer you notice the strategically placed line details that provide exceptionally figure-flattering design.

In Istanbul, Jankovic lost already in the first round to Urszula Radwanska, but in doubles she went all the way to the final, wearing the Fila Citrus Bright Dress.

Jelena Jankovic Nanchang outfit

The first title of the season JJ won in Nanchang, rocking the blue and lemon tank from the Spirit collection and its matching skort.


After wearing her Roland Garros dress in both Toronto and Cincinnati, at the US Open JJ promoted the teal piranha option of the Fila Fall Platinum Dress. That’s my favorite Fila dress of the season, as I really like this simple racerback and the flirty layered back skirt hem. Unfortunately, Jankovic played just one singles match at the tournament, although later in the season she did occasionally hop into the dress again, including for her successful singles final in Hong Kong.

At the upcoming Asian tournaments and in Luxembourg, JJ wore these black separates from the Platinum Collection, the Fila Fall Platinum Cami Tank, featuring colorblocking panels and adjustable criss-cross straps, and the Fila Fall Platinum Asymmetrical Skirt with side V-cutout.

JJ Zhuhai

Lastly, in Zhuhai, JJ presented the Fila Illusion Colorblock Tank, combining tones officially called peach poise, coral slope and castlerock, and the Fila Illusion Tie Skirt, which exists in solid castlerock and solid coral slope, but JJ opted for the colorful version of it.

What’s your comment on Jelena Jankovic’s 2015 when it comes to fashion? First I want to say that I’m actually surprised at the variety of outfits Jelena wore during the season, as I didn’t have an impression that she wore so many different styles. Also, I have to say that overall I think this was a successful year for Fila and I appreciate how they created very athletic designs that in all their simplicity managed to look feminine. No flowers, no lace, no overly girly features, but the cuts really flatter female body and are a perfect choice for players who like to look modern, embracing the less-is-more attitude. I really like all the outfits, except for the orange dress JJ wore in Istanbul. What do you say? (photos: Jimmie48, Getty Images/Clive Brunskill, Anadolu Agency, Alex Goodlett, Zhong Zhi)


  1. I agree with you Marija; Fila sticks to what they know: simple, athletic designs for women. Fila has never been the brand to give us designs that induces the reactions of Nike, Adidas or even Lotto of 2015. With that said, none of their designs are terribly awful, in any sense. These designs seem to fit JJ’s aesthetic and I think they enhance her game, as well. I really liked the soft, sunny Fila Goddess Dress against the green grass JJ wore during the pre-wimbeldon tournaments this year. Like JJ herself, Fila is solid year after year, doesn’t give us the flashiest performance and is perhaps the most athletic 🙂

  2. Brian, I totally agree with everything you said, I’d just like to add that this year they stepped up in the department of shape, as they did stick to the classic sporty designs, but they performed exceptionally well when it comes to enhancing female figure with their cuts and shapes of dresses.

  3. I like Goddess, Lawn and Fall Platinum dress, but i think you made a mistake because the dress she wore at AO from Platinum spring collection.
    I looked collection for 2016 season and i think that 2016 will be a good year for Fila.

    P.S. I am a reader who sent you a photo of adidas new collection.

  4. Speaking of Istanbul, just found out JJ’s partner was the Turk, Cagla Buyukakcay. Now that is a mouthful! I sure miss Li Na..her name was soooo simple.

  5. DJole, regarding JJ’s AO dress, that’s what it’s called at the Tennis Warehouse website, so I wrote the Fila Spring Glow Dress. About the Adidas collection, where did you send me the photo? I remember Emman Damian showing me the white version of Ana’s dress on Twitter yesterday.

    Jim, many readers wear Fila, but most notably Julia Goerges. And when it comes to JJ’s Istanbul doubles partner, it’s a shame for me to admit this, but that’s the reason why I didn’t include her name in the post haha.

  6. Nice review! As another reader pointed out though, the spring platinum collection and the ready set glow dresses looked so much alike, that everyone thought they were the same dress. I think I complained about the similarities when the preview for the ready set glow collection first came out.

    My favorite other than her Us open dress would be the goddess one, I wish it was available in that color!

  7. DJole, only now do I see what you mean. The dresses look exactly the same and I actually did see that I wrote about the AO collection (, based on the information received straight from Fila, and I wrote that the dress was from the Platinum collection, but I thought that Tennis Warehouse simply called the dress differently, so I disregarded my initial confusion. Regarding your Facebook message, did you send me those three practice photos in new kits? You sent it on the Women’s Tennis Blog Facebook page, right?

    Ga, thank you for further explaining the story behind the problem. The article is corrected now.

  8. I love how Fila changes their outfits depending on the athletes. They used to make totally different outfits for Kim and kuznetsova but now they are making completely different outfits for JJ. Their style is truly for everyone

  9. Sru, yes, they started making more form-fitting and feminine outfits, while before there were more short-sleeved shirts and classic skirts.
