Top 3 capris for tennis and working out

The trend of wearing capris on the court seems to have some (excuse the lame play on words) legs. Back in 2010, I spotted Kim Clijsters at the BNP Paribas Open wearing her Fila capris on the practice courts. Last year, Brittany spied Maria Kirilenko and Jelena Jankovic wearing them there as well. We even saw Victoria Azarenka wear them in the finals.

They’re worn on their own or beneath shorts or a skirt. The look is so popular, you can buy skirt-capri combos: skapris, anyone? Lucky In Love, Fila and Wilson (just to name a few) offer these pre-assembled skort-capri combos. The advantages of the combo are there’s only one piece of apparel to keep track of, price (usually cheaper) and some, like the Fila and Wilson versions, come with a built-in ball pocket.

Get the Look of the Pros’ Practice Gear

Ever wonder what the pros wear when they practice?  Do they wear the basic tshirt and shorts? Well, here at the BNP Paribas Open the spectators are able to get up close and personal to the pros on the practice courts and see what they really wear.  You will find there is a wide range of workout gear from capris to tank tops.

Caroline Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki is normally sporting adidas by Stella McCartney dresses during her matches, but out on the practice court she likes to mix it up with other adidas essentials.  On top, Caroline is wearing the adidas Spring Sequential Racer Tank and on bottom the matching adidas Spring Sequential Short in black. To complete her look, try the adidas by Stella McCartney Sebellica shoes and the adidas by Stella McCartney Org Cotton Visor.

Petra Kvitova

In a more casual look, Petra Kvitova is sporting a tank top and spandex shorts out on the practice courts at the BNP Paribas Open.  You can get a similar look to hers in the Nike Spring Indy Tank in Tide Pool Blue and Nike Spring Pro 2.5 Print Short in Tide Pool Blue. Pull the look together with Nike Zoom Breathe 2K11 shoes in white/purple and a Nike New Basic Feather Lite Visor II in white.

Jelena Jankovic

Even in Indian Wells, the mornings are a little chilly.  Jelena Jankovic knows how to stay warm during her practice.  You can too with Fila apparel.  Get the super comfy Fila Supplex Tight Capri and pair it with the Fila Supplex Jacket for the perfect outfit to start the day.

Maria Kirilenko

Lastly, Maria Kirilenko knows how to practice in style.  Get a comparable look to hers by mixing and matching the adidas Spring adiPure Tank in ultra purple and the adidas Spring Sequential Capri Skort in black.   Finish the look with adidas Barricade 7 shoes in white/green  and adidas Grandslam II visor.
Look your best like the pros whether on center court or on the back court!
