From Beaverton to Oz
When the calendar flips, it means what passes for a tennis off-season is officially over, and the tours are just a few weeks away from the new year's first Slam. Players descend Down Under with a clean slate and, of course, a brand new wardrobe. Here's what Nike's top players will be sporting. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comment section, as sartorial appreciation is not my forte.
Pink camo works for Vika. She kind of embraces that bunker mentality.
I'm not sure I love the dress, but I do like Bouchard's expression. She just looks like trouble.
After Roger and Rafa, Delpo's clothes usually look like an afterthought for Nike. But this suits him.
Something about these shorts reminds me of a jacket Mr. Furley probably wore on Three's Company.
The clothes fit, but the racquet looks a little small.
I'm not a fan of the Kinesio Tape accessory, but it's otherwise a nice outfit.
For a guy with a rather black-and-white game, Rafa always seems clothed in pastels.
Unusually utilitarian for Maria, right down to the biker shorts.
Of course Serena does the photo shoot with hair and makeup. Atta girl.
