Wilson Blade 9

The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships features a 64-player field, offering a fantastic display of tennis outfits this week in the United Arab Emirates. I’ve curated a list of my favorite looks from the WTA 1000 tournament and would love to hear your thoughts. While I’ve ranked them, each outfit stands out for its unique style and deserves recognition. Let me know if you agree with my choices or if you think another look should be added to the list.

The Yonex collection unveiled at the 2024 Australian Open stands out as one of the brand’s best in recent years, in my view. Dayana Yastremska‘s outfit, in particular, caught my eye. She sported the Melbourne Tank, featuring print trim accents, paired with the Melbourne Print Skirt in a wavy print that blends shades of blue accented by yellow.

Perfectly matched with the Ukrainian’s apparel are her yellow Yonex PC Fusion Rev 5 kicks.

Wilson‘s solid-colored outfits consistently grab attention, thanks to their bold hues and sexy silhouettes. American tennis player Peyton Stearns exemplified this trend, looking stunning in a vibrant red crop top paired with a high-waisted pleated skirt. The bold color and flattering cut accentuated Stearns’ athletic physique, making for a striking on-court appearance.

4. Zheng Qinwen, Nike

Zheng Qinwen looks stylish in her soft yellow Nike separates from the Melbourne collection. The Nike Melbourne Slam Tank features a racerback design with slightly textured material and a cutout on the back. Paired with the Nike Spring Advantage Mini Pleat Skirt, which boasts an asymmetrical pleated panel, Zheng’s ensemble not only looks great but also serves a functional purpose by minimizing fly-ups during play, ensuring she remains focused and free from distractions on the court.

3. Elina Svitolina, Adidas

Adidas recently unveiled a black-and-white Premium collection that captivates with its simplicity and discreet details. This collection has garnered so much love that I dedicated a separate article to showcase how Elina Svitolina, Maria Sakkari, Daria Kasatkina, and Karolina Pliskova all look stunning in it at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

This design not only enhances her silhouette with its hourglass color-blocking but also ensures optimal comfort through its mesh fabric panels. An interesting detail in this collection is the laser-cut Adidas logo adorning each garment. To complete her look, the Ukrainian pairs the dress with the Adidas Avacourt 2 tennis shoes, personalized with Ukrainian flag and the logo of the Svitolina Foundation.

2. Donna Vekic, Uomo Sport

Donna Vekic‘s natural beauty shines through in everything she wears, but this week in Dubai, she exudes a particularly classy charm. She sported a blue short-sleeved top (Le Club Crew Milos) tucked into a flirty skirt with pleats in the back (Luxe Skort White) from her own line within Uomo Sport. Her confidence translated onto the court, where she made a statement by eliminating reigning Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka in the second round. Donna Vekic's On tennis shoes in Dubai

Complementing her ensemble, the Croatian opted for On tennis shoes, completing a stylish and functional look for her matches.

1. Coco Gauff, New Balance

Coco Gauff

Coco Gauff continues to make waves not just on the tennis court but also in women’s tennis fashion with New Balance. The soon-to-be-twenty-year-old, who made TIME’s 2024 Women of the Year list, showcased her style in an eye-catching red New Balance Spring Tournament Tank, a somewhat shorter design with contrast binding on the neck. The American paired it with a matching skirt featuring front hem vents.

Completing her ensemble, Coco wore her signature CG1 shoes, this time in the NB navy, true red, and ginger lemon colorway. Her fashion-forward choices reflect her growing influence both on and off the court, solidifying her status as a trendsetter in the world of tennis fashion.

I’ve highlighted some of the top women’s tennis fashion moments from the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, but I’d love to hear your thoughts. Do you agree with my picks, or would you add someone else to the list? Fashion is subjective, and the beauty of tennis fashion lies in its diversity and individuality.
