True icons of the game; Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Li Na, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka will step onto the court in the latest Nike Tennis innovations designed specifically for the battles that they will encounter in Paris.
The most physically demanding tennis tournament commands only those willing to leave everything on the court in the search for glory. Paris is the stage where Nike Tennis’ greatest athletes will battle it out to create history.
The undisputed King of Clay steps up for an unprecedented 7th title; a feat solidifying his legacy as the greatest clay court player of all-time. On court, the Rafa Finals Clay Crew allows Nadal zero distraction with its minimal design. Dri-FIT fabric and strategically placed mesh panels pull away sweat and keeps Rafa fresh throughout his match and continuing along the design ethos of ‘only what is necessary’ Rafa’s Finals Short is everything he needs and nothing more. With a board short style construction it’s lightweight and stays dry at the most pivotal point. Together the Rafa Finals Clay Crew and Short are the perfect compliment to his trademark endurance and never say die attitude.
Roger defines greatness. Seeking the opportunity to play in his 24th Grand Slam final, Roger’s own precision and perfection are clear trademarks of his RF Smash Clay Polo. Classic lines and styling combined with moisture-wicking Dri-FIT fabric, welded shoulder, arm and side seams deliver un-restricted movement and flexibility. Federer’s Smash Woven Shorts have a time-honored look but guarantee lightweight performance and a custom fit.
The champion returns. Li Na entered the ranks of the game’s elite taking home the trophy last year on the famous clay of Paris. This year Li Na will be able to keep cool and collected with a Dri-FIT mesh back panel for maximum lightweight breathability. The matching, flat-seamed waistband of the Baseline Knit Skirt allows for total match comfort, point after point. Comfort on the court with zero distractions leaves Li Na with a strong opportunity to claim a second title.
Sharapova’s aggressive baseline power and monster serve have a diversified range of weapons to match. Her agility, precision and shot placement is a huge arsenal to allow for domination on clay which will only increase in the Dri-FIT Maria Statement Set Dress. The open-back ventilation ups the ante on comfort and range of motion, making Maria one of the most feared athletes in the draw
Whether on the offense or defense, Serena’s powerfuel style of play inspires fear in those who challenge her. With the Dri-FIT moisture wicking properties of the Statement Nike Rally Dress, Serena takes control of the game in comfort, while the extra thick strap provides support rendering her torrential backhand and overall power unstoppable.
Victoria Azarenka — #1 in the world and leading the charge for a new era in women’s tennis. Debuting the Tie Breaker Knit Dress, Victoria stays cool with a Dri-FIT back panel and a pleated knit mesh for ultimate mobility and comfort. Currently one of the most dominant players in the game, she’s here to win and will look good doing it.
