The 2022 US Open is upon us, which means we’ll get to see amazing apparel from all our favorite brands. Fila is no stranger to the game, offering top-performing apparel for over 100 years now. Last year, Fila celebrated their 110th anniversary with the 110 Year Collection. Now, they’re keeping the tradition strong with the 2022 Heritage Collection, which is also Fila’s ATP US Open Collection. By combining classic colors, bold looks, and athletic technology, Fila shows why they’re at the top of the tennis apparel game.
17th-ranked player Reilly Opelka started the year strong by winning 2 titles in Texas. Now he’s certainly hoping to close the year strong at the US Open. To help him out, he’s got the Heritage Stripe Short Sleeve Crew and Heritage Knit Short. The shirt features mesh paneling at the sides to enhance airflow for a cooling effect. Meanwhile, the shorts are made with birdseye fabric for flexibility and breathability. Opelka’s outfit is designed with flexible, moisture-wicking fabrics to keep him cool, dry, and comfortable while out on the court.
Relative newcomer Brandon Nakashima has had a year of solid performances so far. The San Diego native recently made it to the round of 16 in Wimbledon and was also a quarterfinalist in the Atlanta Open. B-Nak is once again in his element now that we’re back on the hard court season. For the NYC Courts, Nakashima will rock the Heritage Stripe Tennis Polo and Heritage Stretch Woven Short. The polo features Fila’s signature red, white, and blue color scheme in an asymmetric vertical stripe pattern. Breathable and flexible birdseye fabric with moisture-wicking properties keeps players fresh throughout the toughest matches. The 2-in-1 shorts come with an inner shortie for compression benefits as well as provide extra coverage.
Rounding up our lineup for now is none other than John Isner. The rank 33 player is no stranger to success on the American hard courts, having earned many titles at the Atlanta Open alone. For the US Open, he’ll be wearing the Heritage Short Sleeve Solid Polo. A contrasting stripe label beneath the buttons creates a striking look, and underarm mesh panels give him room to breathe. Isner will also be wearing the Heritage Stretch Woven Short like Nakashima. Together, this ensemble lets Isner look and feel his best as he goes up against the competition.
Fila’s US Open Shoes
The Axilus Energized is Fila’s premier tennis shoe throughout the 2022 season. It’s easy to see why: the Molded Forefoot Cage provides durability and support while the Energized Rubber cushioning gives amazing shock absorption and responsiveness. Joining the lineup is the SpeedServe Energized. The SpeedServe sets itself apart from the Axilus by being more lightweight, using an integral tongue, and having an asymmetrical lacing design. Updated Energized Rubber cushioning gives players a greater spring in their step too!
That sums up Fila’s US Open Collection for 2022. To stay updated on more tennis products, reviews, news, and more, be sure to subscribe to the Tennis Express Blog. Visit TennisExpress.com to get the best offers on all your tennis gear!
