Roger Federer Day

The crew’s forward leaning shoulder seams and v-neck design maximize range of motion and comfort.  Roger’s outfit is finished off with the RF Woven Short, a mix of exceptional fit and minimal weight, and the iconic Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour.

Roger Federer Night

Roger will step onto the court for his night matches in the RF Hard Court Polo. The collar and bonded four-button placket is designed for comfort and class, highlighting the polo’s high-quality craftsmanship.  Roger’s outfit is finished off with the RF Woven Short, a mix of exceptional fit and minimal weight, and the iconic Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour.

Serena Williams

Serena will look to continue her domination of the women’s game in a beautifully created piece made from Dri-FIT fabric with an inner definition bra to provide comfort and support. During daytime matches Serena will wear the Statement Pleated Knit Dress in Fireberry for her night matches she will wear the Obsidian version. Designed for ultimate range of motion, the dress’ kick pleat skirt gives Serena the mobility she needs to unleash her unnerving power.

Maria Sharapova

Over the years Maria has epitomized style on the courts of the Big Apple. During her matches taking place in the day, she will grace the court in the Maria Back Court Day Dress, with a night time version being created for her evening matches. Its open-hole mesh fabric is bonded to the chest and back insets for breathablecomfort while the dress’ stabilizer straps offer the durability and support Maria needs.

Victoria Azarenka

#1 in the world and leading the charge for a new era in women’s tennis, the Graphic Knit Tank and Flounce Knit Skirt define Victoria’s fast and fun style of play. A classic design remixed for ‘Vika’, the racer back silhouette of the Graphic Knit Tank provides great mobility. The Dri-FIT fabric and lightweight support of the Flounce Knit Skirt’s internal short will keep her cool and comfortable as she takes to the court.

Li Na

Ready to battle on the New York stage, Li Na will step on court in the Short Sleeve Jersey Top and Pleated Knit Skirt. The Dri-FIT jersey fabric and shallow v-neck design of the top deliver optimal breathability and comfort. The heat-pressed pleated front and back panels of the Pleated Knit Skirt provide Li Na with the range of motion she needs to unleash her power.
