Nike launches Melbourne 2023 tennis collection


Nike tennis clothes that players will introduce at the 2023 Australian Open are now available for purchase. The collection mostly combines green and light purple tones with a colorful abstract print that looks like spilled liquid but actually represents a topographic map.

The Nike Women’s Spring Slam Dress features a colorful abstract print skirt and a green top that gives the illusion of a racerfront silhouette. The two sections are separated by a white waistband. There is another variant of this dress where the top is light yellow and the waistband green.

The Nike Women’s Spring Slam Tank is dominated by the topographic map print. Mesh panels and a racerback with big keyhole cutout provide plenty of on-court performance.

The best match for the patterned tank is the Nike Women’s Spring Slam Skirt, available in green abyss and rush fuchsia. The all-over pleated skirt comes with an integrated shortie. The waistband is made from mesh elastic.

  1. I haven’t been a fan of Nike collections lately, but this is great. The bright colours will contrast perfectly against the court in Melbourne. The print is also well done, especially on the dress- it was smart to include a block colour at the top, and the print on the bottom half of the dress.

  2. This is a improvemen from Nike,
    Im impressed, fresh bright colors n its suitable for sunshine tennis court of Melbourne
    The neckline remind me of Sharapova dress back in 2016.

  3. I’m not a fan of this Nike release for the AO 2023. The pattern on the skirt is pretty heinous and I don’t like the hole in the back, and the straps criss crossing the back look weird (I can tolerate hole in the back, but it usually detracts from the dress rather than adds to it. e.g. Nike 2020 Fall Maria Dress purple version of wimbledon dress, and the Nike Roland Garros 2020 Maria dress in blackened blue all have holes in the back, but the rest of the dress is nice enough that the hole is just a minor downside).

    I like that the skirts in the lineup seem to show ball pockets. All skirts should have that. It’s gross to stick the balls up your shorts.

    @Karo, I can’t believe you said you don’t like Nike lately. All the most recent best outfits are from Nike (out of the major brands). e.g. the 2 I listed above, also the Australian Open 2020 Maria dress in red, the Aus Open 2021 court slam tank and skirt combo, the Australian Open 2019 Maria dress (it came in green and blue optiosn), 2022 New York Slam dress (skirt flies up, which is annoying but the dress is cute), and of course the Australian Open 2022 dress in Habanero Red (which was never available in the USA, but available abroad. its rarity makes me like it more so maybe it’s not so great after all).

    For many years, I liked the Adidas designs the most, but they haven’t had any good ones since the Australian Open 2017 dress. ok the 2019 Australian Open Parley dress is decent and unique and comfortable to wear. They just had a long string of dresses with the weird Y back which doesn’t look good, it doesn’t have enough support by itself for those that include shelf bra (some don’t), and then the Y straps don’t cover the straps of a sports bra that you have to wear under the dress.

    Maybe the other brands will release some designs for Australian Open. Adidas and Fila aren’t looking so great. Still some hope for other brands to issue something for the Australian Open.
    Maybe the dresses will look better on the players.

    Thanks as always to Marija for all the updates!

  4. Sumedra, thank you for your thorough review. Adidas was my favorite in the peak Ana Ivanovic era. Nike was also good then, but Adidas was a bit better.

  5. Marie, I know… it often happens that some designs are not available, or available only in certain markets. It also often happens that some designs arrive at a later date.
