Tennis Identity

Lopez, Svitolina, Puig and Cash deck the walls of Melbourne.


Ellesse has revealed its new range of tennis performance apparel, to be worn by Feliciano López, Elina Svitolina and Monica Puig at the Australian Open.

To launch the line, the three players joined Australian Pat Cash and Melbourne graffiti artist Daniel Wenn to paint a piece of street art, close to Melbourne's famous Hosier Lane.

Have not touched it ourselves but the apparel is said to feature new EZ-Move technology which allows free movement during play.  The new line will be available at selected retailers across the world soon.

"Melbourne is one of the street art capitals of the world," said Cash, "so painting a tennis-themed mural seemed the perfect way to reveal ellesse's new performance wear for 2015. It was a lot of fun."

Feliciano López, who was announced earlier this month as one of ellesse’s new ambassadors for 2015 said he enjoyed taking part. “I'm not sure if my graffiti skills are as good as my tennis," he said,  "but it was great to have some fun with the other players before the serious business of a grand slam gets underway. I’m a big fan of the new ellesse kit, and the EZ-Move technology and cooling fabric will be great for the Australian Open, where on-court conditions can be hotter than anywhere else in the world.”
