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!
