Adidas is at it again for the new year designing innovative clothing for the modern-era tennis player. For 2020, the brand is launching their “Ready” gear theme which helps athlete’s in all sports be ready for the best performance possible. This concept starts with their AEROREADY technology which takes the previous ClimaLite tech to another level of sweat protection.
Quote from Adidas Innovation Center – “The ultimate goal is to have a product that delivers high performance, but which is also made in a sustainable way.”
Since the Australian Open is one of the hottest grand slams during the year, adidas came up with HEAT.RDY performance apparel for the pros to wear. This is updated with Keep Cool AeroReady technology to help players feel cool, dry and fearlessly confident on court. Sascha Zverev and Dominic Thiem all are rocking the Men’s HEAT.RDY FreeLift Tennis Top. This high performance tee features FreeLift construction, open hole side structured panels, and a 90s sublimated allover print to standout on court. It’s come in two distinct colorful prints: Dash Green with Tech Indigo or White with Shock Yellow and Tech Purple.
For those that want to more modern class, there is the Men’s HEAT.RDY FreeLift Tennis Polo worn on-court by Stefanos Tsitsipas and other adidas pros. Although it’s basic looking, it’s made with modern innovations to give him a stylish, high performing look. FreeLift construction, open hole side structured panels and a Henley ribbed collar all work together to keep him perfect during play. This one comes in three variable colors: Purple Tint, Dash Green and White.
On bottom, adidas is changing it up with the Men’s HEAT.RDY 2-in-1 Tennis Short. Just like it sounds there’s 2 shorts in this ensemble working together. The bottom layer is an Alpha Skin compression short that’s has a slightly longer inseam with sweat wicking ability and better coverage. The outer short layer is a stretch woven fabric that provides easy protection as well as ball storage and comes in two different lengths 7 or 9 inches. Similar to the tops, they come in three different colors: White with Tech Indigo, Legend Earth with Grey Two, and Tech Indigo with Dash Green.
On the other side, the ladies have their own specific high performance heat gear they’re rocking on court. Garbine Muguruza and Kristina Mladenovic are wearing the HEAT.RDY Tennis Dress in Tech Purple and Shock Yellow. There’s a Y-elastic back that allows for a perfect fit and plenty freedom to swing. The dress has a whole lot of color-blocking with lots of vivid tones KeepCool technology to help you stay confident. It’s fitted at the top, and flared at the hem for an eye-catching look. There’s also an integrated bra and a compression short to go with the dress.
Angelique Kerber, Jelena Ostapenko and Caroline Wozniacki have opted for the HEAT.RDY Tennis Tank. It features the same Y-elastic back with a sleek and stylish color-blocking design. It has a slimming, body hugging look and integrated bra for support. You can find it in two different color tones: Tech Purple with Shock Yellow and Dash Green with Tech Indigo. To coordinate with the tanks, players can wear the HEAT.RDY 13 inch Skort in Tech Purple or Tech Indigo. The medium length skort comes with a slightly flared silhouette, wide waistband for a snug fit and built-in compression shorts.
Another performance apparel option is the Women’s HEAT.RDY Tennis Top which comes in Tech Purple or Black. This has a more relaxed feel, like a tee, but still comes with KeepCool technology and color blocking design. There’s also mesh panels under the arms for enhanced ventilation when you need it.
