Angelique Kerber Wimbledon outfit

adidas Tennis unveiled the London Line in anticipation of the 2017 Wimbledon Tournament. Players including Angelique Kerber, Simona Halep, Kristina Mladenovic, Dominic Thiem and Sascha Zverev will debut this collection on the iconic grass courts of Wimbledon.

Inspired by insights of tennis players and the uniqueness of the game, the London Line Collection represents the personality shift that players experience when they step onto court; unleashing their ‘evil twin’ during Grand Slam performances.

When designing the collection, adidas started with the conflicting duel personalities of a tennis player – friendly off court but a fighter on court. Achieved through the inclusion of contrasting fabrics, as well as technical design features of the performance collection; the pieces in the collection have a solid opaque front and an open mesh construction back.
The London Line is the first of a striking two part collection. With the Wimbledon range reflecting the light and controlled personality on court, the traditional white apparel used athlete insight to produce a sleek and elegant collection. Part 2 and the dark side of the ‘Evil Twin’ range will be promoted on court later in the season, helping you unleash your evil on court.

The adidas London line is available online at http://www.adidas.com/tennis.

Angelique Kerber

“When you step on court, see the crowd and you hear your name, something happens. Something takes over and it’s all about the win. You know in that moment that you will do whatever it takes, give all you have for every point. It’s what gets you to the top.”

Nadal, Barcelone 2017

Rafa Nadal, Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev on the men’s side, Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina and Kristina Mladenovic on the women’s side have dominated the clay court season; while world number ones Andy Murray and Angelique Kerber appeared in big trouble. Here’s our recap of who won what.

Men

Marrakech: Borna Coric

Runner-up in Marrakech last year, Borna Coric came back from the brink, saved 5 match points to overcome Philip Kohlschreiber and capture his maiden ATP title.

Monte Carlo: Rafael Nadal

Rafa‘s reign in Monte Carlo continues: he defeated fellow Spaniard Ramos-Vinolas, who stunned Andy Murray en route to his maiden Masters 1000 final. With that victory, Nadal became the first man in the Open Era to win 10 titles at a tournament, and the first to win 50 clay-court titless, surpassing Guillermo Vilas (49).
