Gamma introduces a revolutionary, patent pending, hybrid cross string made from a proprietary, super elastic fluorinated polymer. Glide Cross Strings dramatically reduces the sliding friction between the strings. This allows the main strings to “glide” farther and faster along the cross strings to score and return more energy to the ball. The radically faster “snap back” generates greater spin with more power, feel and comfort. This string is strictly for crosses only. The Glide string is 20 ft. in length. Check out this cool video from Gamma on this great new string!
Victoria Azarenka (Belarus) lost to Australian tennis player Samantha Stosur at the 2013 Southern California Open, which bumped her from the #1 to #2 spot in the Womens Tennis Association rankings. Despite her loss, Azarenka looked as graceful as always in this winning outfit. She pulls together the always-versatile Nike Woven Pleated Skirt with the loose-fitted Nike Woven Tank for a casual, feminine look. We’ve chosen the Nike Advantage Tank for layering. It’s made of a Dri-FIT stretch jersey fabric and has a built in bra, making it a great layering piece or a one you can use on its own.
Maria Sharapova squared off against Victoria Azarenka in the women’s final match at Indian Wells on March 18, 2012. Azarenka defeated Sharapova 6-2, 6-3, winning the tournament. Maria’s style won us over at this match, however. Her effortless outfit is re-created here with the Nike Baseline 3/4 Sleeve Top, Nike Premier Maria Skirt and one of Nike’s most popular women’s tennis shoes, the Nike Zoom Vapor 9. We love this outfit for its simplicity, and ability to transition from a finals match to a casual Sunday match with friends.
Venus Williams knows how to take the court in style. We’ve seen Venus play in this simple, zebra-print dress with the white visor. We paired Williams’ dress with the Wilson Blade 104 racquet (a Williams sister favorite) that is best for intermediate to advanced players with a medium to fast swing.
The 2014 Australian Open Winner Li Na! Not only did this superstar’s tournament appear almost effortless, but her style did as well. Na pulled together the always-versatile Nike Dri-Fit top in white and magenta knit skirt for comfort and flexibility.
