In her latest YouTube video, Venus Williams takes a look back at the 2022 US Open and gives us details about all the latest EleVen outfits that she wore at the Grand Slam, from practice sessions to singles and doubles matches. The style is a celebration of her Compton roots with a nod to vintage tennis.
Since collections take about 18 months to develop, Venus was eager to finally wear her favorite apparel on the court and she presented a lot of different looks. Her first choice in training was the Break Point set — a white ensemble with a little bit of sheen, featuring a pattern of tennis balls and “11” emboss details.
Even though she usually doesn’t wear blue, the Ace Dress in ocean checkered print made Venus feel empowered and motivated to win in New York.
The heritage-style Baseline set, as Venus calls it “pretty in pink”, includes a lovely crop top and leggings. It is a modern outfit with the ’70s and ’80s feel. She got the most compliments on this one at the US Open.
Venus’ favorite color is green and she’s happy it’s trending now. For the Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day, she chose the Backspin Midi Tank in alpine green and her favorite Backspin 7/8 Leggings, which she considers making in a variety of other colors as well.
In her first-round match against Alison Van Uytvanck, Venus paired the Backspin Midi Tank with the Spin Skirt. In doubles, the American combined the green skirt with the Moonball Long-Sleeve Top, featuring a striped elastic criss-cross detail at the hem.
