New Women’s Nike For The 2018 Australian Open
Two sides to every coin- we covered the new Nike line for the guys playing in Melbourne this year, and now it’s the women’s turn.
Nike Women’s Spring Maria Dress
We get a full year of Maria Sharapova on the court and I don’t mind saying I’m looking forward to that. Her style is her own, and people always pay attention. Here’s her Nike Women’s Spring Maria Dress, pairing feminine style with ultra lightweight performance. Smartly placed ventilation panel just below the chest line. Composition: Main: Dri-Fit 86% Polyester, 14% Spandex. Inset: 76% Nylon, 14% Spandex. It comes in Crimson Bliss w/Black or Barely Rose w/Black. This will work well with her complexion. Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe
It appears that Nike is moving away from dressier styles to focus on court wear that is more casual, more useful to the everyday player. Smart.
(As a side note, Maria was spotted on the AO practice courts wearing this shirt. The RT stands for Riccardo Tisci. Photo from AO Twitter.)
Nike Women’s Spring Zonal Cooling Top
Zvitolina and Bouchard are going to be wearing this top. It features a crew neck, waist-length cut, bonded bottom hem, and a high density Swoosh at center chest. Composition: Dri-Fit 100% Recycled Polyester. Crimson Tint (light orange) w/Black…Lava Glow w/Black…or White w/Black. Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe
You can see it paired with the matching Ace shorts – noted below- on Elina Svitolina here (via Twitter).

Nike Women’s Spring Victory Skirt
Nike captures a tennis classic with this pleated Victory Skirt. This lightweight woven skirt features a flat elastic waistband, built-in compression short, all-around pleats, contrast trim at bottom hem, and a high density Swoosh at left hip. Pleats always look great IMO. Two lengths available, 13″ and 14″ (size SM). Composition: Dri-Fit 84% Polyester, 16% Spandex. Inner short: 80% Polyester, 20% Spandex plain jersey. In Black w/White…Blue Recall w/Black…Crimson Tint (light orange) w/Black…Lava Glow w/Black…White w/Black. Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe
Nike Women’s Spring Ace Short
Zvitolina and Bouchard will be pairing the Zonal Cooling Top with these, a kinda sorta women’s version of the Nike Men’s Spring Flex Ace 2-in-1 7″ Short, as these also have the shorts-within-shorts liner design. Black w/White…Crimson Tint w/Black…Lava Glow w/Black. (Nike will never let go of the word “Lava” for their color schemes. It dates back to Andre.) Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe
Nike Women’s Spring Dry Slam Tank
This is a racerback tank top with a mesh back, which is what you need (along with a lot of sun protection) when playing in the Australian heat. Composition: Dri-Fit 88% Polyester, 12% Spandex. Colors: Black…Crimson Tint (light orange) w/Black…Lava Glow w/Black…White w/Black. Find it: TW/USA • TW/Europe
