The WTA Finals singles draw includes the season’s eight best-performing players and their outfits give us an insight into the most prominent fashion brands in women’s tennis.
The 2022 edition of the year-end tournament is dominated by Adidas, which has three representatives in Fort Worth, while Asics, Nike, New Balance, Yonex and Lotto each have one player wearing their logo.
Iga Swiatek represents Asics in a dark blue tank and skirt. The tank is built with a mix of mesh fabrics and strategically mapped cooling zones for a ventilated feel. In addition, there’s a keyhole opening on the back.
The world number one’s tennis shoe of choice is the Asics Gel Resolution 8. This new colorway is called sky / dive blue.
Ons Jabeur earned her first appearance at the WTA Finals as a representative of Lotto. The Tunisian wears the Lotto Spring Superrapida Top, a vibrant yellow tee featuring a subtle geometric mesh pattern and contrast trim on the sleeves. It’s paired with the Lotto Spring Superrapida Skirt. Notice that Jabeur has different laces on her tennis shoes.
Adidas is the only brand at this year’s WTA Finals to have more than one representative in singles competition.
Jessica Pegula sports the Adidas Limited Edition Dress. The sleeveless, slim-fitting design is inspired by the jerseys you’ll see on the soccer pitches. The asymmetrical print is black on one side and blurry colorful on the other. The American’s shoes are the Adidas Barricade model in white / silver metallic / bright cyan.
Coco Gauff matches a purple New Balance tank with a simple black skirt. The outfit is highlighted by new Coco CG1 tennis shoes in dark moonstone with violet shadow and electric red.
As New Balance wrote on Instagram: “When working with Coco on this colorway we discussed the powerful properties found in crystals and how they are used to celebrate new beginnings. The dark green and red found in this colorway represent her heart and root chakras which stands for the vision and passion she brings to the court and to her fans around the world, all while keeping her grounded and humble through it all.”
The youngest WTA Finals qualifier since 2005 uses both her Head Coco Duffel Bag and Head Coco Court Bag as she arrives to play her matches.
Caroline Garcia switched from Asics to Yonex earlier this year. The Frenchwoman’s dress includes an abstract stripy print inspired by the Rainbow Mountain of the Peruvian Andes.
Aryna Sabalenka, the only promoter of Nike in the singles draw, opted for a simple purple look: a light spaghetti strap tank and a dark tight-fitting skort. Her footwear: the NikeCourt Zoom NXT in white / metallic silver.
