Ashleigh Barty’s Fila tennis shoes and apparel in 2021


World No.1 Ashleigh Barty prematurely ended this tennis season, so I will start my traditional Fashion Retrospections early this year, with an overview of the Australian’s 2021 Fila on-court apparel and shoes.

The first of Barty’s five WTA titles this season came already at the Yarra Valley Classic. At the inaugural tournament, the home favorite sported Fila’s Mad for Plaid collection that was launched at the 2020 French Open.

The collection is unique for its melon, tropical coral and crisp white color palette and the plaid print. At the $565,530 event at Melbourne Park, Barty rocked the orange Mad for Plaid Cross Back Cami Tank and color-coordinated Axilus 2 Energized tennis shoes.

At the Australian Open, Barty wore the Back Court Full Coverage Tank and Back Court A-Line Skirt from the Back Court collection that combines colors navy, lime and light purple.

Ahead of the season’s first Grand Slam, Fila extended the contract with Barty. To commemorate the continuation of their successful partnership, the company established by the Fila brothers in Biella, Italy created an exclusive promotional package which included a custom-made Ash Barty practice tee and a face mask, both with “AB” logo.

Ash defended her Miami Open title in the Tie Breaker collection characteristic for its tie-dye prints and playful pops of maui blue, rogue red and lavender frost. As she tends to prefer classic apparel, the WTA’s top-ranked player stayed away from colorful pieces and chose the simple High Neck Tank and Skater Skirt. The athlete donned the same outfit when she clinched the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix women’s doubles title with American Jennifer Brady in April.

In Charleston, Madrid, Rome, and during her run to the singles title in Stuttgart, Barty sported the Fila Tie Breaker High Neck Tank and Fila Tie Breaker 13.5″ Skirt. Her tennis shoes were Axilus 2 Energized in a combination of tie dye, white and rogue red.

The 25-year-old’s Roland Garros and Cincinnati look was another classic sporty ensemble, this time from the Celestial Point collection.

Barty’s most talked-about Fila outfit this season was the one for Wimbledon, that paid homage to Evonne Goolagong Cawley. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Goolagong Cawley’s 1971 Wimbledon triumph, Fila designed the Trailblazer collection that features elements inspired by the Australian tennis legend’s on-court fashion back in the day.

Barty’s Fila Wimbledon apparel stood out with laser-cut flower embellishments. The racerback tank featured them vertically on center back, while the scalloped skirt had them diagonally on the right side. White Axilus 2 Energized women’s tennis shoes completed the look. The memorable attire got a lot of exposure as the Australian won her second major title in London.

At the US Open, Barty celebrated the 110th anniversary of her tennis clothing sponsor. The 110 Year collection brought archival Fila sketches to life in a contemporary, high-performance package, celebrating the company’s fashion history that dates back to 1911. The Australian wore the 110 Year Racerback Tank and A-Line Skirt. The Axilus 2 Energized shoes in marina/navy complemented the apparel.

What do you think about Ashleigh Barty’s on-court style? Which Fila outfit was your favorite in 2021? Tell me in the comments below.



  1. Her outfits are all pretty plain and tasteful, which is the Fila style and also her style. She’s not the frilly type. The Wimbledon outfit is a standout as it’s plain enough to suit her but also interesting.
