The triumph in the Abu Dhabi final was Sabalenka’s 15th consecutive match win and third title in row.

At the Australian Open, Sabalenka rocked the Nike Spring Melbourne Dress that draws inspiration from heritage Nike ACG style. The mock-neck dress includes a number of features that all work together to maximize ventilation: quarter-length zipper, cutout in the back, mesh panels, and stretchy knit fabric with Dri-FIT technology.

In Dubai and Doha, Sabalenka presented the beige and purple versions of the Nike Spring Slam Melbourne Tank and Skirt. The tank includes a cutout in the front and thick crisscross back straps with an O ring. The pleated skirt has a diagonal cut, which exposes the printed built-in shortie and contrast color side pocket. The skirt’s colorblocking follows the asymmetrical hemline.

At Roland Garros and at grass court tournaments ahead of Wimbledon, Sabalenka rocked Nike’s elegant and sophisticated clothes, almost suitable for a dinner date or an evening cocktail.

The Nike Summer Advantage Slam Dress is a dark-colored piece that seduces with details and textures such as pleats on the right side of the skirt, diagonal open-knit sections in the upper back and chest, as well as an extra stretchy triangle inset in the high-heat area of the waist.

Sabalenka’s US Open outfit was from Nike’s varsity sport-inspired New York collection. She debuted the ’80s-inspired Nike Fall NY Slam Tank and the Nike Fall NY Slam Skirt. To match the outfits, Nike created shoe models in the same color palette. Sabalenka wore the Nike React Vapor NXT in white with green accents.

We could also see her in the yellow version of the Nike Fall NY Slam Dress which features a V-neck, full-coverage back and striped fabric trim for a vintage look. The item has ribbed waistband and godet pleats at the sides of the skirt.

At the Akron WTA Finals Guadalajara, Sabalenka alternated the blue Nike Winter Victory Tank and the coral Nike Winter Victory Top, paired with a classic navy pleated skirt.
