Staff Picks!

First Edition of Staff Picks featuring Kacie!

Kacie’s top apparel pick this month that the fashion forward tennis star cannot miss out on is the Nike Premier Maria Tank.  This tank is being worn by the likes of WTA pro’s, Maria Sharapova and Genie Bouchard during the 2014 clay circuit including the French Open.

This top features a supportive built in bra in a fun contrast color, with a perforated mesh back for ultimate breathability.  Kacie’s favorite element of this product is the fit! This top while being fitted in the bust has a body skimming aesthetic on the torso which is comfortable while playing in the summer months!

This tank is available in 3 fashionable colors; lilac, geranium and the go-to white! The Nike Maria Athlete Tank is also available in junior sizes! It can be purchased at your favorite tennis shop Midwest Sports!

BNP Paribas Open Championship

Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer in the finals of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (3). This was Djokovic’s first title of 2014, & 3rd BNP Paribas Open of his career.

Federer still leads the all-time series between the two 17-16.  Djokovic leaves Indian Wells with a $1 Million check & will remain #2 in the World. Federer has played splendid tennis in 2014, and will rise to #5 in the world.

On the women’s side Flavia Pennetta captured the biggest win of her career after she defeated Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-1. Radwanska tried to battle through injury, but obviously her play was not on Pennetta’s level. This was Pennetta’s 10th career victory and she will rise from 21st in the world to 12th.
