Here is a comprehensive look at the Sergio Tacchini Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.

For female tennis players, Sergio Tacchini has created the Pro-Match line, rich in technical and practical details that guarantee high performance without foregoing femininity. Coming in white, China blue and bright sea blue, the garments are cut to support and move with the body.

Bella dress:

Bilia Polo – Bitta skirt:

For male players who seek a sophisticated image also on court, the brand new entry is the elegant Retro Match line, with a vintage vibe inspired by the brand’s historic archives, revisited in two different versions: one characterised by coloured embossed “ST” logos, such as on the slim-fit polo shirt with two-tone stripes on the sleeves and enamelled snap fasteners, while the other revolves around the tech version of the Young Line polo shirt and on placed stripes, seen also in the matching tracksuit.
The two polo shirts are teamed with shorts and pants in double-face knit, with striped waistband to accentuate the sophisticated personality of this line.

Simple shapes for Essential Match, designed for amateur players that seek high performance garments with no-fuss graphics. In this case, colour is the distinctive feature, used as all-over shades in the Tees, as a detail in the polo shirts or in contrasting combos in the tracksuits.

Ballo polo – Balk vest – Baluardo shorts:

Two lines have also been developed for Novak Djokovic: the one he wore at the Australian Open, and another one for the Internazionali di Roma (Rome Masters), scheduled in May.
And once again, both designs are graphically inspired by the flag of Serbia, Djokovic’s country of origin. In addition to the two playing kits, which come in two versions, white for daytime matches and black for evening ones, are the tracksuits and matching accessories, such as the cap, wristbands and racket bag.

I guess creativity is not Tacchini’s forte, they should perhaps ask Stella McCartney to reinterprate the Serbian flag the way she did for the Union Jack

Last season’s successes lifted Li Na up into the tennis stratosphere and made her one of China’s national heroes. She’ll start her 2012 quest for further glory in a white, clean-cut, Nike Pure Tennis top. The crisp look continues in an old royal Nike Rally Knit Skirt with an appealing ruffle and contrasting black piping.
