It seems like just yesterday that we were reporting on Sharapova’s threads for the WTA finals. But alas, that was a full month ago and now Sharapova is preparing to show on the courts at the Australian Open wearing her signature ensembles that serve up both style and performance to keep the Russian-born beauty comfortably in motion.
For her duds down under she’ll be sporting the new and aptly named Maria Oz Premier Tennis Dress in Daring Red. This dress pulls out all the stops with woven back straps that are cut to allow upper body mobility, a cutout detail for enhanced air flow, and ultra lightweight Dri-FIT poly/spandex fabric that keeps sweat from becoming a distraction. Bonus feature: this dress comes complete with a padded bra for both support and modesty. As you’ve come to expect from Maria, the style is simultaneously classic yet has contemporary details that make it just as fashionable as it is functional. She’ll top off the look with the Woven Bliss Zip-Thru coverup that features a full- zip front for quick changes and easy adjustments to coverage for body temperature regulation – which she’ll need if this year’s weather is anything like last year’s! It also has zippered side pockets for ball storage, a plus in any piece of tennis apparel! No surprises in the shoes department – she’ll be playing in her tried-and-true Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 in hot pink and black to go with the daring red dress. This ultra lightweight shoe is a customer favorite for its low profile that allows quick cuts without sacrificing stability and an XDR outsole with herringbone tread for enhanced speed and durability. Take it for a spin and let us know what you think!
The Siberian siren will be armed with her weapon of choice: the new Head Graphene XT Instinct MP that’s no available for pre-order at Tennis Express! Re-engineered for the 2015 release, this stick incorporates the world’s strongest and lightest material to make it 30%* stronger, which optimizes weight distribution for faster swings and increased power. We can’t wait to be wowed by her enhanced performance this grand slam season! She’ll have it strung with Luxilon Big Banger 16L string and tote the racquet and accompanying gear in – what else? – a piece from the Sharapova collection by Head. All of her pieces are designed for competitive players, taking into consideration what you really need out of a bag to stay on top of your game.
