Simona, Serena, Maria, Sloane and Genie lead Team Nike at Wimbledon


Nike has made no official announcement on their corporate site as to who is going to be wearing what at that big grasscourt tournament in London. I find that a bit curious, but then the NikeCourt Facebook page hasn’t posted anything since mid-February, and their Instagram and Twitter pages only managed brief Roland Garros mentions. However, Nike knows more about marketing than I do, so they must have a plan.

I think.

Anyway, here’s what we know so far from Internet research. (We previously covered Maria Sharapova’s Wimbledon dress here.) This is Genie Bouchard in the Wimbledon qualies (she advanced to the main draw), wearing the Seamless Tank and Victory Skirt.

Nike Women’s Fall Slam Seamless Tank

This White tank is 89% nylon, 11% Spandex with a swoosh in Gold. Nike’s racerback design and Dri-FIT tech help you keep your cool.

Nike Women’s Fall Victory Skirt

Pair the skirt with the tank like Genie has. The all-around pleated look is a tennis classic — so appropriate for such a heritage-driven event as Wimbledon. It also features built-in compression shorts and Nike’s Dri-FIT moisture-wicking. Two lengths available. Content: Skirt: 88% recycled polyester, 12% Spandex. Shorts: 92% recycled polyester, 8% Spandex. Colors: Black, Blue Void and White. White is what you’ll be seeing, natch. Umpire: “Miss? That’s a Blue Void skirt. Return to the clubhouse for a white skirt, please.”

Carina Witthoeft posed for this photo on her Twitter — that looks like Maria Sharapova’s Roland Garros dress.

We’ve spotted several Nike pieces you’re sure to see on the Wimbledon courts, too.

Nike Women’s Fall Slim Fit Tank

Available in Gridiron Black (no at Wimbledon) and White in 81% polyester, 19% Spandex. If you’re looking for the telltale Swoosh, they say it’s on the left hem.

Nike Women’s Fall Tomboy Tank

Note the heart-shaped tennis ball and the words “For the love of kicking ass.” (Imagine that. More irreverence from the Swoosh.) You’ll see that shirt on Simona Halep below. In 100% cotton, Guava Ice and Royal Tint (which we presume to be “white.”)

Nike’s Wimbledon clothes are available at both Tennis Warehouse USA and Tennis Warehouse Europe.



  1. Why do you think Serena’s wearing nylons during practice and her 1st round match? Same reason Nike designed her the “catsuit” French Open outfit?

  2. yes probably but she wasn’t wearing it today, I wonder if she was told to remove the leggings due to Wimbledon dress rules.

  3. Maddy, that is an interesting concept that the nylons would be against the all white undergarment dress code. I hadn’t thought of that. But, yes, she has worn them at every match.
