nike preview: vika’s wimbledon kit

June 18, 2011

The normally flirty Set Point Knit Dress from Nike gets a classy transformation for Wimbledon, replacing the contrast collars and ruffled, tiered skirts with an empire waist and subtle ruching. Vika Azarenka will wear this for the fortnight; she’s the tournament’s fourth seed.

Buy: Nike Set Point Knit Dress, $80, Midwest Sports.

nike preview: serena’s wimbledon kit

Court prep: 2011 Wimbledon 7th seed Serena Williams will defend her singles title in the Nike Smash Lawn Dress. Note the preppy obsidian navy trim around the collar and faux low back (covered with performance-enhancing mesh) of this empire-waisted piece; and the single lines down the center of the front/back of the dress — just enough to cut up all the white and keep her out of wardrobe distractions. Also note that they opted for godets instead of pleats in the skirt. Shoes are the Air Max Mirabella 3.

Buy: Nike Smash Lawn Dress, $85, TW.

tsonga goes bare in uk cosmo

You go, Jo: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
is getting our nod of approval for his decision to pose nude in the latest issue of Cosmopolitan in the UK. The reason? His posing supports the Everyman Campaign, which raises awareness of and funds research for testicular and prostate cancer. What does Jo like best about his bod? “[M]y buttocks,” he says. (We can’t argue with that.) Meanwhile, JWT is loving a good pair of eyes on the ladies and “could never choose between tennis and sex.” Now there’s a smart man.

More posing: Robredo (2007) | Verdaso (2008)
