Spring fling: So I've run through the fashion possibilities for the top Nike tennis ballers including Maria "Shriek"apova, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal. But when talking fashion, you can't forget about one of the originals: Serena "ReRe" Williams.
Here's a rundown:
Sony Ericsson: The defending Miami champion participated in a first-ever tennis water "match" with Rafa on the roof of the Gansevoort Hotel on Monday. ReRe was working the Dri-Fit Volley Short Sleeve Tee in the new lilac ice color - the hue Federer is supposed to wear at Roland Garros - and the Paris Skirt in white with black waistband.
The Nike lookbook also lists the Serena Sport Plus Full-Zip Women's Tennis Top + Capri. These pieces come in the dark obsidian (pictured), white, chalk, black, and lilac ice. According to Nike the gear is made of polyester + spandex and "features convenient zip closure and front seam ball pockets, set off by a voluminous high collar and shimmery satin trim cuffs and pockets."
This outfit looks more like something the former No. 1 might warm up in for her matches.
French Open: I'm not sure what ReRe be wearing for Roland Garros since information on her fashions has been surprisingly few and far between. Could she end up in the Paris Tank + Skirt rumored to be Maria's gear? It would show off her body, which we all know she loves to do - and why wouldn't she?
If anyone has info out there and would like to share, I'm listening!
