Maria Sharapova has two Nike dresses available for this Wimbledon — the Nike Fall Maria London Seamless Dress and the Nike Fall Maria London Knotted Dress. Which one do you think she’ll pick? I think the first one and I’ll tell you why.
Let’s start with the newly-released Nike Fall Maria London Seamless Dress. It’s a very simple sleeveless V-neck design with ribbing at neckline and armholes. The engineered fabric brings texture to the plain dress and provides comfort by increasing breathability and stretch.
When it comes to the Nike Fall Maria London Knotted Dress, it was available in time for Roland Garros, the tournament that Masha was forced to miss because of injury, although she had a floral-printed version of the dress ready for her appearance in Paris.
Finally returning to action after a five-month layoff, playing the Mallorca Open, her first grasscourt tournament since 2015, Sharapova got a chance to wear her Roland Garros dress and she also debuted her new Head racquet bags.
Maria gave us insight into the work behind her asymmetrical floral design:
Let’s return to the Wimbledon fashion talk. Last year, Maria’s Roland Garros dress was available in both blue and white, but the Russian’s choice for Wimbledon wasn’t the white version of the Paris dress, rather, she introduced a new dress that will be long remembered for its unique pleated racerback. Following the same logic, I don’t expect Maria to wear the white version of this year’s French Open dress, so we’re left with the London Seamless Dress. What do you think?
UPDATE: Maria dropped us a major surprise when she showed up for her first-round match against Pauline Parmentier. None of the two mentioned Nike dresses turned out to be her picks for Wimbledon, instead, she introduced a white racerback design that features two cutouts — one below chest and one on the back. I don’t know if it has ever happened that we’ve been misled this much when it comes to Maria’s Grand Slam dresses.
