You better believe we were excited to finally see the new Spring/Summer 2008 looks from Fila Japan as worn by their sponsored player, Akiko Morigami. Here she is playing on the third day of the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne. She lost to Italian Sara Errani 2-6, 6-3, 4-6.
Ever since the winter we’d been dying to figure out what the Japanese arm will be doing for early 2008 (we already know what they’re doing for the rest of the world, with Tursunov and Kuznetsova showing off at Indian Wells last week). For the most part, thanks to Ichizo, all that we found were nibblets — a cryptic post on her own site talking about a photo shoot, and that picture on the right from the shoot’s stylist.
Until this week, of course. We’ll do another post about the rest of the men’s and women’s tennis collections soon.
More: For now, see more photos (and some close-ups) of Akiko’s outfit after the cut…
This photo was from a pro golfer who’s also sponsored by Fila.
