Former Wimbledon Junior Champion Genie Bouchard is having one heck of a 2014, but has yet to make it past the singles semi-finals in a grand slam. Will that all change when she returns to Wimby? With her eye on the prize, she’ll hit the lawn in classic pieces from the Nike Premier Maria Collection, starting with the Premier Maria Tennis Tank that features a completely perforated backside for exceptional air flow to keep her cool. A definition bra in a contrast color provides coverage and support plus makes for a trendy layered look that’s both fashionable and functional in the summer sun. Racerback straps contour the shoulder blades for a fit that doesn’t interfere with movement.
She’ll pair the top with the latest edition of the Premier Maria Tennis Skirt that has the same sweat-wicking and quick-dry properties that you’ve come to love in the past, but some new design details that are sure to please: like the power mesh waistband plus mesh insets, both of which offer unsurpassed ventilation to keep you cool even in the heat of the battle. The pleats add style plus enhance movement and yes, this skirt does come with a built in ball short for storage, support, and coverage. All of these pieces, of course, will be in timeless white as is the standard at Wimbledon.
As for gear, Bouchard will go with the Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 in White and Pure Platinum that’s an excellent match play shoe thanks to its light weight and low to the ground profile for added speed. Her stick of choice will be the Babolat AeroPro Drive Plus GT strung up with Babolat RPM string that features an octagonal profile for those baseliners looking for durability plus spin to dictate their action. She’ll transport the goods in the Babolat 2014 Team Wimbledon 12 Pack Tennis Bag in Black and Green for a nice contrast against the grass. This bag is comfortable to carry with nicely padded straps, plus it features multiple large compartments for organizing your gear. If you’re looking for a bag that can take the weight of all that you have to haul around, you should definitely give this bag a look. And it bears the Wimbledon logo to boot!
