With the 2011 ATP World Tour beginning in the next few weeks, Nike Tennis provides us with a look at the 2011 Australian Open Kits they’ve put together for their top-ranked athletes to wear at the year’s first major event. As the faces of Nike Tennis, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams (who will attend but not participate due to an injury) will be outfitted head to toe in new Nike gear for the Grand Slam event, which includes polo and short sets for the guys, performances dresses for the ladies and new signature sneakers for everybody.
Roger, hoping to claim his 5th Major title at the Australian Open, will debut the latest model in his signature Lunar series, the Nike Lunar Vapor Tour 8, in a white, black and yellow colorway that matches accordingly with the colors of his outfit. Rafael, hoping he can maintain his ranking as #1 in the world and not fall victim to Federer, will take to the courts in a grey, black and red get-up and compliment his outfit with a matching pair of his new Nike Air Max Court Ballistec 3.3 sneakers. The lovely Maria Sharapova will do what she does best and look oh-so-good doing it in her new Lunarlon Speed 3 and while Serena Williams won’t be active on the court at the Open, Nike’s created the Air Max Mirabella 3 for her whenever she’s got the green light to return.
Get a closer look at the Nike Tennis 2011 Australian Open Player Kits after the jump and watch for the sneakers and clothing to hit select retailers soon.
