New York City has always been one of the best stages in the tennis world for bold fashion statements and this year will be no different. Nike is equipping its top tier of talent with loud and flashy designs.
Six-time US Open champion Serena Williams will be making the biggest statement. She'll be wearing a Nike and Off-White collaboration, designed by Virgil Abloh.
Her dress resembles a figure skating costume, and comes in both a day and night version. Williams’ shoes and warm-up jacket will also be eye-catching and unique.
Former champion Maria Sharapova’s outfit won’t be quite as loud, but the Russian will still stand out in a design especially made for her.
The Nike Court collection will feature lots of orange, a color that will do well contrasting the blue hues of the Queens hard courts. Rafael Nadal will be wearing salmon and black shirts for his US Open title defense.

Last year's women's champion Sloane Stephens, Denis Shapovalov and most of Nike's men and women will also be in orange and black.
The US Open begins on Monday, Aug. 27.
