Staying in the spirit of fashion at Wimbledon this week, the men have been looking sharp in white wearing such brands as Nike and adidas.
While some people may think an all white ensemble is a dull or boring look, these tennis outfits have small pops of color and little details that make them anything but dull or boring. Some of my favorites include those worn by tennis stars Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray.
Starting off on the right foot is the No. 1 seed at Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal. Wearing the Nike Fall Rafa Ace Lawn Crew and Nike Fall Woven Short, Rafa proves why he is on top of the tennis and fashion world. The shirt has an engineered jacquard mesh design and a blue detail on the underarms so Rafa will stay cool and collected on the court. The shorts are kept simple with a matching blue Swoosh logo on the all white short.
A fan favorite at Wimbledon, Andy Murray shines on the court in the adidas Fall Barricade Crew and Short. With two hits of color, blue and green, the crew gives a basic top a sophisticated look. The shorts stay understated with just a pop of green on the logo.
Taking on the competition in the Nike Fall RF Trophy Lawn Polo and Nike Fall Challenger Woven Short, Roger Federer continues his classic and timeless style. The polo features green accents and a subtle embossed Swiss cross pattern. The shorts follow suit with an understated contrast green stripe down the sides of the short.
Who do you think looks the best? Keep watching the 2011 Championships at Wimbledon to see these players and their outfits in action!
For the last 109 years, Slazenger has been the ball of choice at the All England Club for the Wimbledon Championships.
The longest partnership in sporting goods history, Slazenger at Wimbledon has become as deep-rooted as the adherence to all white apparel.
Until 1982 the balls were white, too. There had been some early experiments with green tennis balls for better visibility, but players continued to use white Slazengers until the 1982 Championships ushered in the new era of high visibility, fluorescent yellow balls.
For this year’s Championships, the players will again be using Slazenger Ultra Vis tennis balls and you can, too. Now at Tennis Warehouse, the Slazenger Wimbledon ball is available in a 24 can case. Each metal can holds four balls and features a limited edition design celebrating the 125 years of The Championships.
