In 2016, tennis pro Angelique Kerber walked away with her first US Open title. This year, she’s looking to repeat. This time she’ll also be sporting the Inline New York Color Blocked Dress in chalk white from music producer Pharrell Williams’ new adidas tennis collection. The retro dress mixes iconic 70’s-era style with high performance fabric and features. Made of ventilated climacool material that will keep you cool, this dress also has built in shorts and bra. A v-neckline and color blocked side panels made of knit mesh fabric set apart this bold dress.
“The US Open is such an exciting tournament for me,” Kerber said. “Last year I not only won the tournament for the first time, but also won the WTA World Number 1 ranking – reaching an achievement that I have dreamed of since I started playing tennis. To come back and play in a dress from such an exciting collection and collaboration is really special and I can’t wait to show my love for the city of New York on the court.”
