Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams are among 13 athletes featured in Nike’s new “Find your Fast” campaign.

Nike’s “Find Your Fast” campaign brings together some of the planet’s beacons of speed to inspire athletes to run or train for their fastest time this summer. Whether preparing for a first mile or looking to shave seconds or minutes off a personal record, all athletes can get faster.

“Fast in tennis means always being in the point. No matter what an opponent sends my way I can get it. Because you can’t hit what you can’t reach!” – Serena Williams

“Being fast in tennis is everything. If I’m quicker to the ball I’m in greater control and I can exert my will on the match and the opponent. Fast wins matches. I want everything about me on court to be fast.” – Rafael Nadal

Serena Williams NikeCourt Flare shoe

Engineered specifically for Serena Williams, the NikeCourt Flare delivers stability through a lightweight, minimal design. The shoe, designed by Aaron Cooper at Nike, was created in response to Serena’s ankle issues.

“At the time, I was having issues rolling my ankle,” Williams says. “So I wanted to create a shoe that would give me a lot of stability and make me a better player.”

According to Cooper, the silhouette was inspired by the collection of KOBE signature shoes, kung fu masters and the idea of footwear being an extension of the body.

“Serena was looking for a shoe with more stability that was bigger and more built up,” Cooper says. “What she actually needed was the complete opposite; something that was less built up and with a lower profile. She needed something that would really work with her as a second skin.”

The NikeCourt flare will be Serena Williams’ tennis shoe for Wimbledon.

“This shoe really is an extension of my foot,” Williams says. “And when you think about it, if you’re at home in your house and you don’t have shoes on, you just don’t think about anything else. It’s just your body. And that’s what this shoe is all about.”

Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi

Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi renewed their rivalry last weekend at The Greenbrier, a luxury resort in West Virginia. The exhibition was interrupted by rain on Saturday at 3-3 in the first set, and the game resumed on Sunday with Agassi’s victory 6-7 6-3 10-5.

Enjoy a brief recap and some pics, thanks to Econman:

The big takeaway was that the court was in bad shape due to the heavy rain on Saturday. There were numerous deadspots. Slices that hit around the service line would just die. Both guys really had to make quick adjustments because they had no clue how the ball was going to bounce. Despite that, both Pete and Andre had some clean winners. It was amazing to see.
