At the 2019 US Open, the NikeCourt athletes will wear psychic purple, black and white separates inspired by the walls of NYC.
Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, Petra Kvitova, Victoria Azarenka and other Nike stars will mix and match tops and bottoms equipped with Dri-Fit technology and mesh that supports airflow.
The Nike Fall Graphic NY Tank is inspired by torn posters found around the US Open host city. The left shoulder strap features a portion of the city map. The tank is made from an open-hole mesh fabric and has a built-in bra.
The tank is intended to be paired with the Nike Fall Slam NY Print Shorts. Yes, this is not a skirt, it just looks like a pleated skirt in the front.
The Nike Fall Slam NY Tank includes graffiti-inspired graphics and when you look closely you will see that the top’s engineered fabric looks like a brick wall. The pair for this tank is the Nike Fall Slam NY Skirt, a flounce design also inspired by graffiti. The black outfit will be worn at night, while the white and purple combination is for day sessions.
When it comes to shoes, Nike created color matching updates for the following models:
New NikeCourt looks are available at both Tennis Warehouse USA and Tennis Warehouse Europe.

Hideous colour. For some reason everyone seems to think they have to have ugly fluorescent colours for the US Open.
CLT, I don’t find fluorescent colors ugly, especially not for sportswear, but I agree that somehow the US Open and vibrant colors tend do go hand in hand in everyone’s mind.
Look up Andre Agassi in the eighties. Then imagine these outfits on him. Perfect.
