All three athletes will be competing in the New Balance 996V3, an update to NB premium tennis model with the first ever knit, nylon-infused upper; an innovative, form-fitting fabric design that is heat-fused for strength and durability – designed to support during your during intense match play.

Raonic, Watson and Gibbs will also be outfitted in apparel from the New Balance tennis collection.
Raonic will wear New Balance’s new Tournament Short and Yarra Crew. (For those who don’t live Down Under, “Yarra” is a river, mate. Really like the soft hue of the Raonic shirt — they are going for the softer look much like adidas has done.

Women’s Availability: TW/USA (Tank).
