US Open 2013 Gear Check: Li Na

Posted on September 5, 2013 in Miscellaneous

2011 French Open Champion, Li Na has her eye on a US Open title this week at Flushing Meadows. Between her sassy personality when giving interviews, to her on court demeanor and text book groundstrokes, it’s hard not to love this woman’s personality and game. This year, her US Open gear happens to be my favorite, so let’s take a look at what she’s working with.

Her apparel: Li Na is staying protected in the Nike Autumn UV Printed Knit Top which is lightweight and has the UV protection of +40. This v-neck features a sublimated print with contrast seams and is a bold statement in the Fusion Red color. She pairs that with the Fall Flounce Knit Skort in the Cool Grey color that adds a splash of playfulness to this look. As far as shoes go, Li Na is wearing the Nike Max Breathe Free IIs for a comfortable and stable fit on the court. She keeps the sun off her face with a Nike Featherlight Visor and uses a Nike wristbands for extra sweat absorption.

Her equipment: Li Na’s weapon of choice is the Babolat Pure Drive which offers her unlimited amounts of power blended with spin and a crisp response. She pairs her Pure Drive with a control oriented, spin-friendly, firm string from Babolat, Pro Hurricane Tour. She can be seen carrying her gear in the Babolat Team Line Blue 12 Pack bag on and off the court.

Now, let’s watch and see if she can go all the way this year!

Play with heart,
