UPDATED: Just a few days after Nike released promo images of their Australian Open 2020 collection, the main person in the campaign, Bianca Andreescu, withdrew from the season’s first Grand Slam. The Canadian was supposed to wear a smashing new outfit — a temperature-regulating knee-length bodysuit, which doesn’t have to, but can be combined with tanks, crop tops and skirts in a watercolor pattern from artist Cassie Byrnes.
In terms of visual appeal, the bright yellow Spring Court Bodysuit is definitely inspired by the Melbourne sun (although it’s also available in purple and black), while its structure is fighting the hot temperatures, as it maximizes breathability in areas that tend to overheat. The show-stopping bodysuit is the base layer, although Nike stated that the reigning US Open champion Andreescu was supposed to wear just that pure yellow garment at the Australian Open. That actually makes sense, because why put on unnecessary layers during the Australian summer?
Other Nike athletes, such as Madison Keys, Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, and others, may choose to add a splash of colorful contrast to the all-yellow piece, as Andreescu did in the above promo image with the Nike Spring Court Print Dress. The blue, baby pink, grey and nude watercolor print, created by Australian-raised artist Cassie Byrnes, is said to be inspired by the tropical beauty of North Queensland.
The Nike Spring Court Print Jacket rounds out the collection.
The NikeCourt Melbourne 2020 clothes arenow available at both Tennis Warehouse USA and Tennis Warehouse Europe.

This is the worst Nike tennis outfit I’ve ever seen
Melxir, lol IDK, I love the bodysuit. Although, I was shocked when I woke up to this photo of Bianca 😀 As for the layering, I’d prefer it to be solid, maybe even yellow as well, although the print is OK. Let’s wait to see it all in action.
Well as an Australian I must say the print doesn’t remind me of tropical North Queensland at all. Don’t mind it as a print in itself though.
I wonder how the reactions will be if Bianca only decides to wear this short body suit after Serena wore a full length body suit at Roland Garros 2018.
CLT, that’s funny. Apparently artists can say whatever they want and be like “I see it that way”.
Paul, I’m sure the reactions will be a freezing state of shocks 😀
I like it. I prefer she wears it as pictured on the first photo.
Serena has already done the whole bodysuit look. Soooo last century lol
I was (very) skeptical but I thought that dress looked good on Kvitova during the Rally for Relied event actually !
Rialia, well, you are right 😀 Still, the bodysuit grabs attention and is perceived as new on the tennis fashion scene.
Virginie, I’ve seen photos from the Rally for Relief. Kvitova does look good in it, it brightens her up.
Marija yes Petra did look good but I prefer her in a two piece for some reason. Serena in all Black crop top and skirt for some reason I don’t think this will be her OZ Open apparel. Great Abs though wow. What do you think?
Rialia, Serena doesn’t wear her Grand Slam apparel prior to her first-round match, so I also don’t think that the black crop top look will be her choice for the AO. Great abs for sure. It was funny to see her as the only mom in the crowd and only she was wearing a crop top.
Majors apparently Serena will wear the purple bodysuit and she will be the only one wearing that color
Rialia, why do you think Serena will wear the purple bodysuit? She basically never wears what NikeCourt players are wearing.
Marija my thinking was based on the footwear she’s been training in which was also purple and usually when she’s training in a shoe at a slam that’s the shoe she wears but now I think my guess is wrong because student designers are designing her attire for the 2020 season.
Rialia, where did you hear about student designers? Can you share the link?
Looks good but is that not a cat suit
Cassie Byrnes nike print is terrible
