Fila tennis clothes for the 2016 Australian Open: Print echoes flying tennis balls


At the 2016 Australian Open, Fila-sponsored athletes will wear the brand’s Platinum collection with sharp, runway-inspired silhouettes.

What we notice first is the print reminiscent of a tennis ball in motion, while the colorway includes black, white and safety yellow. Black is the least favorable color for the Australian Open, but the dress is made of THERMOCOOL™ fabric, which regulates body temperature.

Jelena Jankovic will wear this Fila Platinum Dress, featuring an eye-catching criss-cross design and an inside bra with removable padded cups.


In this official promo pic, Yaroslava Shvedova is dressed in the Platinum Criss-Cross Tank and the Platinum Skort, while the collection includes a total of five styles of tops (keyhole cami tank, halter tank, criss-cross tank, racerback tank, and cap-sleeve top) and a variety of matching bottoms (double-layer short, skorty capri, skort, long skort).

If you follow Women’s Tennis Blog closely, you must have noticed in our Australian Open photo galleries that Vera Dushevina was wearing the new Fila clothes in Melbourne qualifying.

Are you a fan of this style? I think that the dress will bring out Jelena’s perfect figure and I especially like the shape of the neckline, however, I’m quite worried about the black color, despite the cutting-edge fabric.


UPDATE: Now we can see how the collection looks on JJ, as she shared this photo on Instagram.

  1. Love the dress but do agree that black in that heat is worrisome. Hope JJ’s matches are all late evening ones!

  2. This collection looks much better than last year for the Australian open. I agree that the shape of the neckline looks good. I like tanks, especially tank with short sleeves.
    I looked Fila collections for 2016 season and I think that 2016 will be good year for Fila.

  3. Wow! Fila have really got their groove on, I like it – so edgy & modern. JJ will wear that dress like a (drama) queen (lol!)
