LONDON, England - Adhering to the tradition of the world's oldest tennis tournament, Nike athletes Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Li Na will compete on the storied courts of London in a wardrobe of classic tennis whites that fuse timeless tennis style with Nike's cutting edge technology.
Serena Williams, the defending champion, will compete to retain her title in the Nike Printed Flounce Knit Dress. Crafted in a Dri-FIT jersey fabric to keep Williams dry and comfortable, the dress also features a subtle V-neck design for a nonrestrictive fit. Harmoniously blending fashion and function, the Flounce Knit Dress features a subtle embossed pattern that reflects Williams' inimitable style.
Maria Sharapova will be competing in the lightweight Nike Premier Maria Flounce Dress, designed to offer supreme comfort without any compromise on style. The bonded seams of the dress move smoothly to help prevent on-court chafing, while the Inner Definition bra provides coverage, shaping and support. A knit-in chevron skirt pattern offers a sleek, modern update to a classic tennis silhouette.
Li Na, a two-time Wimbledon quarterfinalist, will wear the Nike Tech Polo, designed to provide the utmost comfort and a sophisticated amount of coverage. Laser perforations at the bust and back offer better breathability, while contoured empire and princess seams create a flattering fit. An invisible zippered placket and woven collar combine customized ventilation with a streamlined aesthetic.
