Petra in Purple in Instanbul!

I’m really loving a bunch of the pieces in the Nike Winter group that we have right now. We are seeing a lot of purple from several brands right now and the Purple Dynasty from Nike is really standing out as a great seasonal color. My favorite WTA player, Petra Kvitova, has one of my favorite looks at the moment.

pppThe big serving lefty from the Czech Republic is wearing the Nike Winter Printed Knit Top, (which is similar to the top Li Na wore at the US Open, which I also loved). Despite the chill in the air, some of us will continue to benefit from the SPF protection (UV 40+) this top offers while playing outside, while everyone else that moves indoors for the fall/winter season will enjoy how lightweight this top is so it won’t weigh you down on the court.

 

She pairs it with the Nike Winter Woven Pleated Skort in purple dynasty. I love this skort because of it the fit, but also that line toward the middle that looks like a ribbon encircling the skort. Her shoe of choice is the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9s in the White, Pink, Purple colorway. I love the the swoosh on this shoe because it has a sparkly pop of that purple dynasty to tie the whole look together.

 

Hope you all are enjoying the great tennis in Instanbul at the BNP Paribas WTA Championships!

 

Play with heart,

Petra Kvitova finished up her first round match, taking out Misaki Doi 6-2, 3-6, 6-1. She cruised the first and last sets, making it an easier win than the scoreline might indicate. Let’s take a quick look at her current gear.

Her look: Nike’s Pure Short Sleeve Top in Fusion Red. We’ve also seen Li Na and others, including American Jamie Hampton, sport this flattering full coverage top. Kvitova paired her top with the Nike Flounce Knit Skort in Cool Grey. This is skirt is a great mix-and-match piece, especially in this color. On her feet, she’s sporting the Nike Lunar Vapor 9 Tour, at TW playtester favorite, in Atomic Pink. She accessorized with matching wristbands and head tie.

Her equipment: To hit her punishing groundstrokes, she makes the Wilson Steam 99 her racquet of choice. There’s loads of power coming from this one. She also uses a Wilson Pro Feel Dampener and a Wilson Pro Overgrip in white.

Happy US Open Watching!
