Here at Tennis Warehouse excitement is in the air for the start of the 2013 ATP and WTA seasons. We’ve got up-and-comers to watch for on both tours, from Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov on the men’s side to Sloane Stephens and Heather Watson on the women’s side. With the new year comes new shoes and apparel, so let’s take a look at the gear some of the top players will be wearing for the Australian Open!
On the men’s side…
The man, the legend, Roger Federer will be wearing the Nike Premier RF Polo and Twill 10″ Short, complemented by his new grey and pink Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour shoes during his night matches and his own NikeID creation during the day.
Nike’s next best hope, Juan Martin Del Potro, will be sporting the Rib Crest Crew on top with the Gladiator 10″ Short on bottom to match. He will be running around in the brand spankin’ new Air Max Cage shoes.
On the women’s side…
World #1 Victoria Azarenka leads the Nike women into the Aussie Open in her new Grand Flouncy Knit Dress. She’ll also be wearing Nike’s exciting new arrival to the women’s shoe line, the Zoom Vapor 9 Tour women’s shoe.
As for adidas, they are welcoming (recently engaged) Maria Kirilenko, Laura Robson and Andrea Petkovic (though she has just recently pulled out of the Aussie) to join Caroline Wozniacki in wearing the Stella McCartney line. Kirilenko will be wearing the Stella McCartney barricade Cap-Sleeve, and Robson will be in the same or the Stella McCartney barricade Tank. Both of them will be wearing the Stella McCartney barricade Skort.
