Reigning US Open champion Sloane Stephens is the face of Nike‘s new campaign for the 2018 edition of the tournament. The American is set to wear the NikeCourt Fall Slam Dress and NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero tennis shoe during her title defense in NYC.

Nike states that this fall 2018 collection is “a contemporary play on the styles worn by athletes at Forest Hills in 1968”, a nod to classic styles updated with the company’s most innovative materials.

All-over pindot mesh fabric equipped with Nike Zonal Cooling technology makes Stephens’ NikeCourt Fall Slam Dress super comfortable and breathable. Racerback and partially-pleated skirt with side slit allow free range of movement. At lower back there is a stylish slim keyhole for extra ventilation. The color of the dress is muted orange.

Nike proudly states that the Air Zoom Zero is the first tennis shoe to feature a full-length, curved Zoom Air bag.

The 25-year-old Stephens also stars is Nike’s promotion of the Nike City Ready collection, which comprises apparel and footwear, including bras, crews, pants and, of course, shoes. The Nike City Ready will be available September 6 in Europe and September 14 in North America.

Here we can see Stephens in the Nike City Ready Collection Pant with extra long zippers, which can be styled in numerous ways. The WTA world No.3 also shows the Nike City Ready Collection Crop Jacket, a lightweight and water-repellent design inspired by a vintage ski jacket.



  1. I’m liking the orange outfit a lot; reminds me of cheerleader’s garb. However, Sloane will need more than a flashy, new Nike outfit to win that title again. Hope she’s bringing her “A” game and more, because she still, unfortunately, lacks consistency.

  2. TheRealDeal, it doesn’t have to mean much for her US Open, but it’s definitely positive and encouraging that Sloane’s now in the Rogers Cup semifinals.

  3. Okay, Marija, agreed. On the other hand, Halep is becoming more consistent these days. The way she runs balls down is simply amazing. Sloane’s on-court attitude seems to be improving, as well as Halep’s. May the best lady win (Rogers Cup). With Serena Williams struggling with her health right now, the field is wide open for who takes the US Open title this year. The majority of the ladies honestly haven’t done much in taking advantage of the GOAT’s dry spell. “Get well ASAP, Queen Serena! I’m praying for you. Women’s tennis is quite boring without you. Olympia is so cute, precocious, and strong. She’s got your strong body, for sure. Your videos of her gardening, dust mopping, and playing soccer make me smile.”
