It looks like Nike just uploaded the start of the US Open collection for later this month. Let's guess who will be wearing what based on what items have posted so far.
Though the official announcement hasn't been made yet it looks like Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova and (please-god-let-that-be) Serena Williams' getups are available now.
Nike is keeping Roger classic in a minty green / pale blue option, devoid of metallics (boo⎯ it's the tennis god Federer, give the man some medal!), flashy neons or prints. We do expect to see a special edition shoe to drop any minute now though which should make up for the gentle approach.
Let's hope this Dri-Fit polo is for Rafael Nadal because let's face it, who else could pull off an Agassi inspired look on the court these days?
There is no doubt that Nike will again let Li Na play second fiddle to the big names, putting her in the most basic items possible. This makes us wonder, does Nike insist that Na keeps it simple or is this upon the athlete's request? Seeing how Maria, Serena and Victoria consistently look super distinctive on-court, it's a valid question.
Maria is sticking with the Premier Tunic silhouette with good reason, having won the French Open in an orange and pink version. This new color-blocked look solidifies the silhouette for a much tougher look than last year's evening look for Maria, which is refreshing. Sure, Sharapova shares supermodel traits such as having a candy line and rarely taking a bad photograph, but given her athletic achievements it's great to see Nike put her in a more serious look. Hello French Open victory, goodbye Swarovski-encrusted dresses.
We can only hope that Nike is awarding Serena with this leopard print dress after seeing her now-famous wedding crasher moment on Instagram this summer.
Thanks for joining in on our speculation, stay tuned for Nike's official announcement.
