New Inphorm Womens Tennis Apparel Line

Staff’s picks!

Lisa’s pick
The piece of tennis apparel I would love to own is the Inphorm Block Tennis Dress. This is a fantastic dress to be worn by any lady, young or old, competing on the tennis court. This dress is also available in a Champagne/Tubro Orange color. One would need this dress due to the excellent style and feel of the fabric. The higher neckline is very flattering and protects you from too much sun exposure on your chest. The Inphorm line which is new to Midwest Sports is an eco-friendly line. When you feel good…you play well!!

Simona Halep Marches into the French Semifinals

Simona Halep French Open Gear

Tennis’ newest rising star, Simona Halep, reached her first career Grand Slam semifinal after beating Svetlena Kuznetsova 6-2, 6-2. Halep, the 4th ranked player in the world, has been dominant at Roland Garros, not dropping a set this tournament.

After a 3 hour rain delay, the 22 year old Halep, put all of the nerves and pressure aside and just played her game. That game of hers, has been one of the best games during the 2014 season. Halep ripped forehand after forehand, wearing Kuznetsova down. Halep has become a force on tour & fashionable on the court as well.  During her match versus Kuznetsova, Halep gave us a fresh look in her glow orange adidas tank with a tribe purple skirt with bright orange under shorts.

Top Tennis Fashions – Victoria Azarenka

Victoria-Azarenka

 

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.
