Adidas Maria Sakkari Wimbledon 2022

The most memorable outfit at this year’s Wimbledon is probably Maria Sakkari‘s Adidas Parley London Crop Tank + Short ensemble. This entire Adidas collection, made in part with plastic ocean bottles found as waste in coastal areas, features laser-cuts and textural patterns inspired by Morse code.

Sakkari’s tennis shoe of choice is the Adidas Barricade.

Clara Tauson Wimbledon 2022

On Denmark’s Clara Tauson we could see the Adidas Parley London Match Tank, a loose-fitting design with overlapping back panels, and the Adidas Core Gameset Match Skirt.

Angelique Kerber Adidas dress Wimbledon 2022

Angelique Kerber‘s Adidas Parley London Dress features Y-back straps, that form a large triangular opening below, and laser-cut executions inspired by ocean activists. Just as in other items from the collection shown above, the pure white is contrasted by a yellow stripe detail on the front neckline.

Fila Wimbledon 2022

Karolina Pliskova introduced Fila’s White Line collection that nurtures classic silhouettes with timeless performance rib insert detailing and elevated pinstripe lines. The Czech’s choice was the Fila White Line Racerback Tank and Fila White Line Skirt.

Fila Wimbledon 2022

Arriving on the court, the former world No.1 Pliskova used the Fila White Line Jacket and the largest tennis racquet bag from the Wimbledon x Babolat collection.

Anett Kontaveit Wimbledon

Anett Kontaveit wore a white Lacoste tennis dress and also stored her racquets in the Babolat Pure 12 Pack Wimbledon Bag.

Petra Kvitova Wimbledon 2022

Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, Simona Halep, Amanda Anisimova and Emma Raducanu all opted for the Nike London Slam Dress, a short-sleeve design with mesh at the upper chest and back, and a unique type of pleats that meet in the front, not going all the way around.

Paula Badosa Wimbledon 2022 Nike

When it comes to separates, the new Nike collection offers this slim-fitting London Slam Tank, highlighted by shoulder zippers that can be opened or closed, combined with the London Slam Skirt, a flirty silhouette with two curved tiers of micro pleats that flare as players run for the ball.

Serena Williams Nike Wimbledon 2022

Serena Williams made a long-awaited return to action in a custom long-sleeve Nike dress. We can notice a floral pattern on the hem. In recent years, the tennis legend prefers to cover her body, so she also wears fishnet tights.

Jelena Ostapenko DK ONE

Jelena Ostapenko continues to endorse a small Latvian brand — DK ONE. At the French Open, she wore the most memorable outfit that featured contrast ruffles on the shoulders and the color scheme that combined vibrant pink with a black-and-white houndstooth pattern. The Wimbledon outfit is the same, only that now a lack of busy patterns makes it less eye-catching.

Ajla Tomljanovic Original Penguin dress

Ajla Tomljanovic delivers a retro aesthetic with a new brand on the Hologic WTA Tour — the Original Penguin. The Australian’s Penguin Core Veronica Dress is a classic short-sleeve design with a cute rounded collar and mesh hem trim. Black piping on the placket, collar and sleeves matches the black embroidered penguin logo on the left chest.

Ajla Tomljanovic Daria Saville Wimbledon doubles

Tomljanovic also sported the Original Penguin separates, playing doubles with compatriot Daria Saville, who represented Lululemon.

Heather Watson New Balance Wimbledon

Heather Watson‘s New Balance dress features a front zipper and black accent line around the neck.

Coco Gauff Wimbledon New Balance

Coco Gauff‘s fishnet-style outfit is custom New Balance for their biggest star.

Alize Cornet Iga Swiatek Wimbledon

Alize Cornet gave a lot of exposure to Lotto as she ended world No.1 Iga Swiatek‘s historic 37-match winning streak in the third round. Asics‘ representative Swiatek was supposed to wear a short-sleeve top, based on the brand’s pre-tournament announcement, but the Pole instead chose a tank, also with strategically mapped cooling zones.

Venus Williams Jamie Murray Wimbledon

Playing mixed doubles with Jamie Murray, Venus Williams launched her new EleVen whites highlighted by eye-catching details like angular mesh paneling and ruching that seamlessly integrate into off-the-court style. Above we can see the WTA legend in the EleVen Wavy Dress In Bright White, a racerback design with a wavy jacquard detail, while we also saw her sporting the EleVen Wavy Long Sleeve In Bright White and the Wavy Tennis Skirt In Bright White.

Kirsten Flipkens Wimbledon

Mizuno has lost one representative, as Kirsten Flipkens said goodbye to her professional singles tennis career after a defeat to Simona Halep in the second round.

Marie Bouzkova Wimbledon 2022

Marie Bouzkova represents Joma. On her left chest we can see her initials and a dolphin (she puts a dolphin emoji in most of her social media posts).

Alison Riske Wimbledon 2022

Alison Riske-Amritraj wore a simple white K-Swiss ensemble.

  1. I must say I like the white gear, so much less busy and easy on the eye. I like Ajla’s penguin outfits, and Daria looks nice too. I also like Maria’s crop top, it suits her athletic frame, although perhaps not every player could pull it off. Nike a bit busy as usual, Fila too plain, and all the others are pretty much alike.

  2. The Original Penguin that Ajla is wearing was formerly known years ago as the Munsingwear Penguin and was quite popular for American male golfers like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer in the 60’s. My Father even wore golf shirts with the exact same penguin insignia that Tomljanovic wears now, back then. Also I noticed Petra Martic wearing a golf insignia shirt with the J. Lindeberg emblem on it as was her coach in her box in her match against Rybakina today. This Swedish sportswear design can be seen on many ladies of the LPGA, including Seb Korda’s sister Nelly.
    Also, wasn’t there some controversy with Ostapenko’s skirt being off white, and not a true “Wimbledon” White?

  3. Adidas crop top separates looked horrendous! Nike separates were nice, but the dress had a weird pattern especially the front non-pleated. Rest all plain, nothing special.

  4. Jim, I always appreciate your insights into the golfing world. Thank for giving us details about Original Penguin, I didn’t know that. I didn’t really think about it, but I assumed they were a new brand, so it’s good to learn they have such a long and distinguished history. As for Ostapenko’s dress, yes, it is challenging the dress code, but for some reason the organizers didn’t object it.

  5. Wow! I never noticed that Serena wears fishnet tights. They can’t be white so how did she get to wear those without Wimby objecting?
    And, is Venus’s EleVen collection that Tatjana wore, designed to be worn braless? Does it have a built-in bra?
    Loving what Coco wears too.
    I just stumbled onto this blog and immediately signed up for the newsletter. So happy to have found you!
