He’s known as the King of Clay, but he’s been on a bit of a tear this summer on the hard courts so watch out for Rafael Nadal as he makes a bid for another US Open title. Let’s take a look at Rafa’s gear from the 2013 US Open.
The party has officially started in New York, but one of the A-listers is missing from the draw: Maria Sharapova.
The 2006 US Open champ is an A-lister not only for her tennis, but her fashion choices as well. She’s the only Nike female tennis player to have her name on a line of apparel, and off court, we often see her on the red carpet.
With New York being a hotbed for fashion, we can usually count on Maria to step up her fashion game. This year is no different when it comes to the fashion front, but sadly she had to pull out of the US Open due to a shoulder injury.
The big surprise for the 2013 US Open was going to be her night dress. The dress is a nod to the Big Apple with its abstract skyline print. Stepping out of the box, the shortie is intentionally longer than the dress — a look we haven’t seen on the courts (at least intentionally!).
