As the tennis world eyes the Big Apple for the last major of the year, Nike unveils the apparel and footwear its athletes will wear to dominate day and night.
Nike Tennis presents the looks that Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Li Na, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro will wear on the hard courts of New York later this month.
Sharapova’s daytime dress showcases her unique style, while featuring multiple technical innovations to enhance on-court comfort and performance.
The racerback design helps ensure full range of motion and sonic-welded flat seam construction techniques maximise comfort against the skin during epic on-court battles.
The dress is made from Nike Dri-FIT Knit jersey fabric to wick perspiration away from the skin, and features multiple laser perforations for lightweight ventilation and comfort.
The current Ladies’ Champion will compete to retain her New York title in the Nike Heathered V-Neck Dress she inspired.
For day matches, Williams will compete in a Fusion Red colored dress. At night she will wear a DK Armory Blue colorway.
The dress is crafted from a combination of Nike Dri-FIT jersey and taffeta fabric to help keep the reigning champion dry and comfortable. The seamed bodice provides a flattering fit and the angled hem facilitates freer on-court movement. An invisible zipper on the right side seam allows for secure storage of small items.
Azarenka will compete in New York wearing a lightweight tank and skirt combination that complements her fast, energetic style of play.
The Nike Strappy Knit Tank reinvents the classic racerback design with crossover straps, a supportive built-in bra designed specifically for tennis and a combination of Nike Dri-FIT jersey and mesh fabrics for optimal thermal management.
The snug skirt has a high-waisted, circle-skirt silhouette for a feminine, flattering fit and includes built-in shorts for lightweight support and comfort. Azarenka’s shoe of choice is the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour women's shoe.
Chinese tennis phenomenon Li will take the court in New York wearing the Nike Pure Short-Sleeve Top and Nike Flounce Knit Skirt.
The top features a signature neckline for a nonrestrictive fit and cap sleeves to enable a wider range of motion.
The Nike Flounce Knit Skirt is an ideal companion piece with built-in compression shorts and ruffled hem designed to deliver sensational on-court performance without sacrificing style.
The legendary Federer will step onto the court sporting the Nike Premier RF Jacket, Nike Premier RF Polo and Nike Premier Twill Shorts.
The mix of Nike Dri-FIT fabrics used in the shorts and polo will keep him comfortable and dry while mesh inserts in the collar of the shirt provide ventilation with maximum comfort.

Nadal makes his return to New York after a year's absence. The Spaniard will wear the Nike Premier Rafa Jacket as he walks on court and compete in the Nike Premier Rafa Crew and Nike Premier Woven Shorts.
The modified V-neck design and self-binding fabric on the Nike Premier Rafa Crew provide unrestricted movement. Laser-cut ventilation holes and innovative Nike Dri-FIT taffeta fabric for the shorts deliver all-day perspiration management and comfort.
Nadal’s footwear choice is the Nike Air Max Courtballistec 4.3. The shoe features Drag-On 2X protection for durability. along with a Lunarlon, Max Air combination for maximum cushioning, response and support.
Coming off a great tournament in London, Juan Martin del Potro looks to reclaim the title he won in New York in 2009.

To stay comfortable before and after his matches Del Potro will wear the Nike Convertible Jacket with removable sleeves.
