Shara­pova's U.S. Open look in­spired by the Big Ap­ple

NEW YORK — Maria Shara­pova loves New York.

When the 20-year-old ten­nis star de­fends her U.S. Open ti­tle this year, she’ll wear ten­nis dresses dec­o­rated with graphic in­ter­pre­ta­tions of New York’s sky­line.

The de­signs, cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Nike se­nior de­signer Colleen Sandieson, were un­veiled this week on a rooftop at Rock­e­feller Cen­ter.

Like last year, Shara­pova will have one out­fit ded­i­cated for day play and an­other for night matches.

The color is in honor of the Big Ap­ple.

The dress is a sleek gar­ment made of a breath­able wick­ing jer­sey and con­structed with a no-sew tech­nique with seams bonded with heat and sil­i­cone in­stead of thread.

There are more than 600 Swarovski crys­tals in­cor­po­rated into the de­sign, adding a lit­tle flash to the out­fit, but Shara­pova said it’s sim­ple and classy, which suits her taste.
