Rafael Nadal, Wimbledon 2019

A few weeks after his 12th Roland Garros title, Rafael Nadal will start his quest to a third Wimbledon crown against Yuichi Sugita. He could next face Nick Kyrgios in the second round, Denis Shapovalov in the third, Marin Cilic in the fourth and Dominic Thiem in the quarterfinals, before a semifinal showdown against Roger Federer, and an eventual final against Novak Djokovic.

Rafa will be wearing the NikeCourt AeroReact shirt and NikeCourt Flex Ace shorts.

His shoe of choice is the NikeCourt Zoom Cage 3:

The asics Court FF clay court tennis shoe has been redeveloped with world number one Novak Djokovic. The new version, the Court FF Novak clay, is ideal for competitive players who are looking for quick acceleration, lateral stability and resistance against premature deterioration.

Novak’s shoe is now available on asics.com.

Richard Gasquet, Roland Garros 2019

Playing just his fourth tournament since undergoing groin surgery, Richard Gasquet defeated Mischa Zverev in straight sets to advance to the second round. His next opponent is Argentinian player Juan Ignacio Londero.

” I have only been replaying in tournaments for three weeks. I’m very happy. Although I’m not at my best level I’m happy to have won this match and I want to enjoy it.”

On the court Richard is sporting Le Coq Sportif from head to toe: he used to wear asics shoes as the French brand only produces streetwear shoes but they made a pair specially for him; they are indeed working on a collection for the general public that will be inspired by this model.

As always a clean and elegant outfit by Le Coq Sportif:

Rafael Nadal will start his quest for a 12th Roland Garros tomorrow against qualifier Yannick Hanfmann. To honor his prior 11 titles, Nike has unveiled a limited edition of the Cage 3 Glove dubbed “What The” Rafa that Nadal will be wearing during the games.
