Our Favorite Looks From The Australian Open
Over the past ten years, more than half of the winners of the Women’s Singles at the Australian Open have worn Nike. From Serena Williams to Naomi Osaka, champions seem to be brandished with a swoosh. There may not be a correlation between wearing Nike and winning the Happy Slam, but there does seem to be a pattern.
So who’s wearing it this year and how can you get your hands on it? Well, look no further, Midwest Sports has got you covered.
The Nike Court Slam Line is taking over the Australian Open this year, being sported by players from Simona Halep to Bianca Andreescu.
The line features the Nike Court Slam Tank, which is inspired by heritage Nike ACG styles. The whole line comes in earthy tones with bright pops of color, and the tank has a strappy crisscross back and features a keyhole design in the front.
You can also catch players like Elina Svitolina and Belinda Bencic in the Nike Court Slam Skirt. The skirt is available in the same colors as the tank and features an asymmetrical hem and lightweight pleats to highlight the inverted ball pockets and camo inner shorts.
The Updated Nike Court line also features the Court Slam Dress, which has the same earthy tones and bright pops of color. The dress has a mock neckline and a cut-out design on the back. Its mesh panels and DRI-fit fabric is perfect for the Australian heat or you when you’re sweating it up on the court.
If however, your taste is more to the likes of eight-time Australian Open winner, Serena Williams, you can also find her current gear, such as the Nike Greatest Athlete of All Time Serena Tee and the Nike Never Stop Fighting Serena Tee on our website in unisex sizes.
Other female players wearing Nike this year include Petra Kvitova, Madison Keys, Sloane Stephens, and Naomi Osaka.
For the men, Lacoste seems to be the brand of the winners, though by winners we really mean winner - Djokovic, but what does the eight-time champ have on this year?
It should come as no surprise that Djokovic is wearing his own line for the Australian Open. Last year’s champ will take the court in the Lacoste SPORT x Novak Djokovic Breathable Polo, a lightweight stretch jersey.
He’ll also be wearing the Lacoste Novak Djokovic Melbourne Shorts, which feature ultra-dry taffeta bottoms with breathable mesh panels on the inner thighs and contrast piping.
Other players at the Open will be wearing the latest from Adidas, Fila, Asics, and more. Find all these styles at midwestsports.com and tune in to the Australian Open now through February 21st on ESPN and the Tennis Channel.
