Yes, it’s white.
The ladies will have the “flowing baby-doll nightie” look, per the Nike press release. Which means that when the wind kicks up, there could be all SORTS of unseemly wardrobe malfunctions.
“The women’s team style is updated from a two-piece look to a modern edition of the traditional tennis dress,” says the release, which means that those who are part of the team (no idea if this means ALL the women wearing Nike or just “select team members”.
The dress is just not going to look good on some of the Nike-wearing women. And many of them probably aren’t used to wearing dresses, and don’t prefer them. So we’ll see how that shakes out.
The white version of Bouchard’s current blue dress has been circulating around the interwebz as her Wimbledon kit, but that seems not to be the case, per this press release. It looks good on her but unlike her winter dress, it seems to ride up on her shorts a lot (which maybe should be slipperier) and she has often hiked it down over her hips during matches.
The two pics of Serena are the most unflattering pose for her – and the same pose. This is a stunning woman, but they have done her zero favours.
The Roger Federer polo is “features a traditional tennis collar, while its underarm gussets are engineered to enable optimal range of motion. Laser-perforated ventilation helps keep Federer cool.” So that should help. 🙂
Open Court opinion? They should put Bouchard in her “off-court romper”. It looks amazing on her, and it would REALLY make a statement.
