Nike Tennis Stars Set the Night Aglow in Paris

It's rare to find four of the world's biggest tennis stars in one place other than tournament tennis grounds. But on Thursday night in Paris, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal came together to reveal the looks they will wear on the clay courts next week and take part in an unprecedented  tennis exhibition. 

"It’s exciting to be here. We don't have too many opportunities for all of us to be together to do something fun."  - Serena Williams 

At L'Espace Clacquesin, the athletes took their marks on a futuristic indoor tennis court specially designed for the occasion. The court was plunged into darkness, with only the court lines, net and the players' outfits aglow in fluorescent light. The foursome played mixed doubles and showed off their individual style and humor. After, Sharapova, Williams, Federer and Nadal shared their love for the game with young fans on the court. 

"Being here tonight, there's such an incredible energy. It’s very exciting to see the kids' passion for tennis." - Roger Federer
