Nike’s Roland Garros 2017 dirt-inspired outfit

best tennis shoes 2024

After showing you Maria Sharapova’s and Serena Williams’ Nike dresses for the 2017 French Open, which will not see the light of the day as neither the Russian nor the American will play the Grand Slam in Paris this year, I’d like to present the separates that we’re bound to see all over the tournament site throughout the fortnight, as many players will wear them, including the WTA’s 2017 leader in the number of titles and match wins — Elina Svitolina.

The mock-neck Nike Summer Slam Premier Tank in paramount blue pairs with the Nike Summer Power Spin Premier Skirt which is distinctive for its white paint splash print, or as Nike explains “the scatter and grit of clay court during furious games”. Both items also exist in black, while the skort is available in two lengths.

If you browsed through our Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s qualifying photo galleries, you’ve already seen this kit in action a lot.

The tank is made from circular knit fabric for enhanced breathability, as you can see in the pic above. The skort’s Nike Power fabric ensures stretch and support, Dri-FIT technology is there to wick sweat away, while mesh waistband brings targeted ventilation.

Fanny Stollar of Hungary

Besides the world No.6 Svitolina, I expect we’ll see Eugenie Bouchard, Annika Beck, Madison Keys, and many others in this outfit.
