April on the WTA Tour was marked by Premier-level tournaments in Charleston and Stuttgart, where a number of classic sporty designs stood out as fashion favorites. Marija Zivlak of Women’s Tennis Blog will present the best looks that graced the clay courts in this spring month.

Karolina Pliskova claimed her tenth career title at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix wearing the Fila Spring Pia Sleeveless Polo and Fila Saffira Skirt. Yet again Fila succeeded in creating an innovative and modern collection by predominantly using traditional and timeless elements such as stripes, pleats and the color navy.

The sleeveless polo is a reinvented retro look with ribbed collar, pinstripes, contrast armholes and snap button placket, while when it comes to performance, the top is nothing but contemporary thanks to its quick-drying performance fabrics. During the Czech’s run to the Stuttgart champion’s trophy, we also saw the white version of the polo.

The pleated skirt is far from a basic navy item, as it features contrasting striped elastic waistband with cute “F” logo.

The tank, available in a multitude of colors, features a mesh back and sweat-wicking fabric to help players feel dry and comfortable. The pleated skirt with contrast trim at bottom hem has an always-fashionable silhouette that fits every physique. The skirt also boasts a contoured waistband with mesh for ventilation in the high-heat area of the body and built-in compression shorts for lightweight support and coverage.

Awaiting to debut her Roland Garros dress, Kristina Mladenovic looked sporty chic in red and white adidas separates. The adidas Spring Barricade Tank is a slim-fitted design featuring stylish and functional engineered mesh at back and sides, contrast details, moisture-wicking Climacool technology and a built-in bra with elastic hem.

The adidas Spring Barricade Skirt is a classic sporty design that stands out with its honeycomb texture, while hidden features that work for players are quick-dry fabrics and UPF 50+ protection.

Julia Goerges (Jimmie48 Photography/WTA)

Julia Goerges made the Volvo Car Open final in the orange Asics Spring Print GPX Skirt, recognizable for its sublimated print and wrap design that provides range of motion, and the Asics Spring Print GPX Tank, a racerback model with keyhole cutout.
