Here’s a look at the latest styles from Adidas, Nike, Fila and Asics that this year’s WTA players will be wearing at the US Open 2022, courtesy of Marija Zivlak from Women’s tennis blog.
Adidas collaborated with young South African designer Thebe Magugu to create expressive outfits that celebrate culture, heritage, diversity and inclusivity. The dominant graphic design is an abstract work inspired by a dancing woman. The dominant colors in the collection are black, semi-pulsating lilac, impact yellow and bright orange.
Garbiñe Muguruza will sport the Adidas New York Dress, available in semi-pulsed lilac and black/grey/impact yellow. The brand’s classic Y-back design is a 2-in-1 piece as it includes separate coordinating shorts.
The fitted and stretchy dress is made with a series of recycled materials, containing at least 60% recycled content. Moisture-wicking AEROREADY technology helps players stay dry and focused on their game.
What sets this Thebe Magugu collection apart are the neutral styles. The Adidas Unitefit New York Sleeveless Top this american Jessica Pegula the models in the promotional image above can be worn by women and men. The high-performance piece features Unitefit technology, created and tested on a range of sizes and genders to provide a comfortable, gender-neutral fit with inclusive sizing.
Pegula combines the unisex top with the Adidas New York 2-in-1 tights. The 7/8 tights, featuring a side pocket for storage, can be worn underneath or on their own, as the skirt is sold separately.
Nike players will shine under the lights of New York in these heritage-inspired styles. 80s tennis silhouettes are colored in subtle blue and purple hues with pops of orange.
When it comes to partings, women can mix and match three versions of the Nike Fall New York Slam Tankeach with bright orange accents and the Nike NY Slam Shortswhose pleats on the front make it look like a skirt.
The predominantly navy Nike NY Slam Dress features a pleated skirt, wide white waistband and light arctic pink mesh sections.
Fila’s Karolina Pliskova and Shelby Rogers will launch the brand’s collaboration with American designer Brandon Maxwell, while Barbora Krejcikova will wear the latest iteration of the Heritage collection.
Former World No.1 Pliskova presents the collection’s racerback tank top with a keyhole cutout at the chest and a red wrap pleated skirt. The Czech wears the pink and red version, while the set also exists in navy/green/white.
For the warm-up, there is a light pink coat with a zipped bottom, offering a long version and a short version.
The 21-piece Fila by Brandon Maxwell range also features a bold polo shirt – a short-sleeved shirt with a classic collar accented with an unexpected cutout at the chest. As can be seen on Shelby Rogersthe eye-catching polo shirt can be paired with an elegant pleated skirt in fila’s archival navy and green.
Barbora Krejcikova and other Fila-sponsored WTA players will sport the latest edition of the brand’s annual Heritage collection. The Grand Slam champion should alternate between two looks: the Heritage Halter Tank Top in magenta matching the Heritage Color Block Skort in magenta/navy, and the Heritage Racerback Tank Top in buttercup yellow combined with the buttercup yellow/navy version of the same Heritage Color Block Skort.
