With the 2014 Australian Open set to start next week, Nike Tennis has unveiled outfit grids for some of their top athletes on Monday. Superstars Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have brand new signature apparel to show off as they look to add to their Grand Slam title count while rising star Juan Martin del Potro is on his quest for a second major with Nike's finest performance gear.
Rafael Nadal will be wearing a redesigned Nike Premier Rafa Jacket, a 2014 Premier Rafa Crew, Nike Gladiator 10-inch SW Shorts and the Nike Lunar Ballistec. The Lunar Ballistec is one of the lightest tennis Nike has ever made, weighing in at 13 ounces while the new 2014 Premier Rafa Crew uses Nike Sphere fabric panels that allows for optimum breathability.
Roger Federer will be wearing Nike Premier RF Cover-Up, Nike Premier RF Polo, Nike Gladiator Premier 9-inch Shorts and the new Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour. The Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour is an update of the Federer's favored Zoom Vapor 9 featuring a new textile upper, flex grooves, supportive TPU foot frame and Dynamic Fit. The Premier RF Polo features laser perforations on the back panel which makes them ideal for warm weather conditions, particularly in a tournament as challenging as the Australian Open.
While he does not have the signature apparel and shoes of his legendary Nike mates, Juan Martin del Potro will be rocking the Nike Air Max Cage which features Drag-On Cage technology and a Max Air unit. Del Potro will also be using the Nike Advantage UV Crew and Nike Gladiator 10-inch Plaid shorts.
