Fabio Fognini Australian Open outfit

New year, new gear for Fabio Fognini who switched from Hydrogen to Emporio Armani. Fognini will star in the latest campaigns for the EA7 Emporio Armani and Emporio Armani Underwear lines, the Italian brand announced in a news release. He has also been signed up to front new collections in the Emporio Armani Underwear line, starting this month. His wife, 2015 US Open champion Flavia Pennetta, will also feature in the advertising campaigns.
Here’s a look at his Australian Open outfit:

2019 is beginning well for Tomas Berdych, with a new clothing sponsor – he recently switched from adidas to Italian luxury sportswear brand Hydrogen – and a return to his best form. Coming back from a 6-month injury hiatus, the 2010 Wimbledon finalist reached the Doha final and the fourth round in Melbourne where he’ll face Rafa Nadal.
Tomas’ tech camo t-shirt and shorts are available online in three colorways: green/grey/black, red/grey/black and white/black.

Nishikori Australian Open outfit

A perfect start of the season for Nishikori, as he claimed his 12th career title in Brisbane, his first since February 2016, after nine consecutive final losses.
He will hit the Melbourne courts wearing his new colorful Uniqlo outfit. The shirt is available in two color ranges: pink/orange/green and yellow/dark green/brown. Do you like the vivid colors? Really different from Federer’s kit, don’t you think?
