The year’s second Grand Slam is set to kick off on May 31st in one of the game’s most historic cites. Known for its French flair and passionate fans, this year’s French Open will be another memorable one for the NikeCourt Team.
Set to debut a series of Dark Purple Dust inspired kits, this season’s edition of Roland Garros has all the ingredients for a truly historic ending. Will Serena Williams capture her 24th career Major and will clay King Rafa Nadal stand alone as the grandest Slam champion with 21 titles on his side?
Irrespective of how this year’s event will conclude, let’s now have a look at the latest outfits from NikeCourt in Paris.
