Nike’s Wimbledon Line: Nadal, Federer, Dimitrov, Bouchard, Sharapova & Williams
Nike’s released its lineup for Wimbledon, the one Slam where Nike just can’t mess with the color schemes. They can mess with the styling, though, as we saw last year.
First the men:
(Note that some of these items are named differently depending on whether it’s USA or Europe. For example, Europe’s “Nike Men’s Fall Rafa Wimbledon Challenger Crew” is the “Nike Men’s Fall Rafa Aerocourt Top” in the USA. And Nike itself has a different name for it- the Aeroreact Rafael Nadal Challenger. No idea why.)

(And we’re still waiting to see if there are some new Federer emoji shirts like last year.)
Nike Men’s Fall Rafa Wimbledon Challenger Crew
Here’s the Rafa shirt for London- he has been wearing this same shirt pattern for awhile now, no? But it’s done pretty well – so keep it going. The white on white makes it ok for Wimbledon.
Nike Men’s Fall Rafa Flex Ace 7″ Short
And the shorts to match.
Nike Men’s Fall RF Advantage Wimbledon Henley
When you’re The GOAT, you keep it simple and clean. You’ll get a modern, refined fit, feel and look on the court from the Nike RF Advantage Henley. This Dri-Fit top features a ribbed collar with three-button placket, bonded shoulder seams for comfort, ribbed sleeve cuffs, a metallic heat transfer RF monogram at left sleeve, and a high density Swoosh at left chest.
Nike Men’s Fall RF Flex Ace Wimbledon 9″ Short
The RF Flex Ace 9″ Short features a woven material, a flat elastic waistband with internal drawcord, front darts at waist for a superior fit, side pockets with flex point details, laser cut perforations at sides, four-way stretch, a heat transfer RF monogram at right leg, and a high density Swoosh at left leg hem. White only. Dri-Fit 100% Polyester.
Nike Men’s Fall Advantage Wimbledon Henley
A subtle pattern adds style and ventilation to this Nike Advantage London Henley. The engineered knit fabric is laid out in a checkered pattern to provide zonal cooling in this top. It also features a three-button placket, rounded side vents at hem, bonded bottom hem, and a high density Swoosh at left chest. Shoulder seams are also rolled forward for greater range of motion on your swings. Comes in Action Red w/Blue Jay and White w/Dark Grey- and of course, no Action Red allowed at The Big W. Dri-Fit 100% Polyester.
Nike Men’s Heritage Wimbledon T-Shirt
Really nice looking design here! This 100% cotton tee features inner neck taping for comfort, ribbed crew neck and a screen print Nike Court logo on the chest. In White w/Gorge Green & Binary Blue.
Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Flyknit
The Fed will be wearing these on his wheels. The soft and supportive new upper material sits atop a platform that’s proven to offer some of the best premium lightweight performance on the market. That red is a tad risqué for Wimby. Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe
That’s it for the men for now. If we come across anything else, we’ll add it in!
Nike has another marketing conundrum on its hands. Once again, their top two women players are sitting this Slam out. Serena’s back in January, and Sharapova is out due to the combo of an injury and her ranking/wildcard kerfuffle. (Can’t we all just get along?) She’ll be back for Stanford at the end of July, and I’m sure we’ll see a Maria blitz for Flushing Meadow. (Wait! Idea! A Serena Nike maternity line. Must get Phil Knight on the phone…)
Nike Women’s Fall Maria Wimbledon Power Dress
Knife pleats on the skirt add movement to this skirt, while the asymmetrical placement give the pleats modern style. The Dri-Fit dress also features a V-shaped mesh inset on the chest, skinny racerback, wide armholes to allow for a layered look, and a high density Swoosh at center chest. Made of 81% Polyester, 9% Spandex. White w/Dark Grey.
Nike Women’s Fall Maria Flex Skirt
The micro-pleats give these shorts a classic tennis touch, while the NikeCourt embossed waistband and inner compression shorts deliver modern performance. Also features a Swoosh at left leg.
Nike Women’s Fall Serena Wimbledon Power Dress
A feminine tiered skirt adds style but with its varied mesh fabric (a trend we’ve written about), it also helps to keep you feeling cool on the court. The dress also features a V-neck, mesh panels for ventilation, and a high density Swoosh at left chest. This Dri-Fit dress is made of 88% Polyester, 12% Spandex. White w/Dark Grey. But you knew that.
