Victoria Azarenka proved why she is the top ranked woman on the WTA Tour, defeating Li Na in three sets to win her second consecutive Australian Open title. Her tactics may be controversial, but no one can deny her heart and desire to win. Let’s take a look at what the champion was wearing during this year’s first Grand Slam.
Vika uses the Wilson BLX Juice 100. It’s a stiff and powerful player’s frame with lots of access to power and spin, very similar to a Babolat AeroPro Drive. Our playtesters found this to be maneuverable and very forgiving, ideal for strong players looking for a little extra pop to add to their game.
On her feet were the new Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour, one of the latest and hottest women’s shoes on the market. The Vapors gained popularity on the men’s side with their introduction last year, as Roger Federer personally helped design them to replicate the feel of a running shoe while still possessing the support of a tennis shoe. We are currently playtesting the women’s version now and they are quickly becoming a favorite amongst the team.
To go along with her new kicks, Vika was wearing the Nike Women’s Grand Flouncy Knit Dress. It looks and feels great, made of lightweight moisture-wicking materials and designed specifically for high performance. Check out both great colors!
