Angelique Kerber will debut the tank and skort, which also includes bi-tonal pleats in green/white.
The collection is built to keep athletes comfortable in a multitude of conditions, with a combination of Clima technologies and mesh detail offering ventilation and quick evaporation of sweat.
Lotta Jurica Design Director adidas Tennis explains: “For this collection we wanted to encompass the colours and style of Roland Garros within the design, which is why we’ve focused on colour blocking in the traditional green associated with the tournament as well as classic tennis silhouettes. The inclusion of Clima technologies means that athletes can be confident they will be comfortable on the court, which is crucial in the unpredictable conditions of Roland Garros.”
