Fresh start in 2016: Elina Svitolina replaces Ellesse with Nike

Elina Svitolina was top representative of Ellesse tennis clothing, but the world No.19 announced on her official Instagram account yesterday that she’s starting the new year dressed in Nike. The Ukrainian posted the above photo, simply saying “Hello Nike”, making it clear that she’s become a part of the big Nike family.

Ellesse and Svitolina were an excellent combo and I especially enjoyed the retro looks featuring a headband and blue/navy pleated skirts. I don’t doubt that Svitolina will look great in Nike, although I have to say that in Ellesse she stood out more, as few other players wore that brand. Monica Puig now becomes Ellesse’s No.1 WTA representative.

The first Nike promotional images include Svitolina clad in the white Nike Winter Slam Breathe Tank, Nike Winter Victory Breathe Skirt and Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour shoes. This style was worn by several players in late 2015 season, most notably Petra Kvitova and Lucie Safarova at the WTA Finals in Singapore.

Svitolina is currently in Perth, Australia, playing the Hopman Cup alongside Alexandr Dolgopolov.



  1. I think she’ll look nice in Nike, but I’m a little bummed since I thought Elina was a great fit for ellesse. I also feel this way over Goerges switching as well, since Fila is another brand I wish more players wore

  2. Dam right they choose Elina Svitolina for Nike they better pay her big big $$$ she’s a Beautiful girl and will only get More beautiful and will be gray for Nike!!
