For this year’s US Open, Nike athletes will take the court in their own unique looks and general “team” apparel.

The overall apparel construct for US Open is neo-classic inspired with an expressive retro sport nod. You’ll see unexpected color blocking and print stripes while still being of the game and the culture.

Innovation in the apparel pieces is of course inherent. The apparel was designed to move with the body, at the forefront of technology, but foremost in comfort for the athlete.

One of the key team looks for the female athletes is the NikeCourt Zonal Cooling Slam Dress, a lightweight, fly away dress that opens at the side to reveal a ball pocket in NikeCourt Power Short.

On the men’s side, the team tennis look includes the NikeCourt Dry Advantage Men’s Tennis Polo featuring a tie-dye like sublimation graphic on the front and back. The polo is made of Nike Dry fabric to help keep athletes dry, comfortable and focused.

For an athlete exclusive look, Maria Sharapova will be exclusively wearing the NikeCourt Maria Dress featuring a stretch-knit fabric with a racerback silhouette made for mobility and comfort. The dress also features flared sunburst pleats in the skirt and a cutout panel on the back adding a bit of style to the look.
