FILA Athletes Ready to Shine Bright in New Tie Breaker Collection at the Miami Open

(FILA Luxembourg S.à r.l.) - FILA sponsored tennis players will spring into style this March at the Miami Open, debuting the new, eye-catching Tie Breaker collection which offers bold tie dye prints and playful pops of color bound to break on-court fashion barriers and score major style points in the process.

ATP Tour players Reilly Opelka, Diego Schwartzman, Dusan Lajovic and 2018 Champion John Isner will swing into Miami wearing the men’s Tie Breaker line in a color palette of tie dye / maui blue / lavender frost / glacier gray. The collection includes three crew shirt styles: the Printed Crew, which goes back to basics using a functional white base and tie dye finish, built on THERMOCOOL performance technology; and the all-new Vented Crew, offered in lavender, white and agave green, which fashions a new front laser pocket for an ultra trendy fit and enhanced ventilation. The classic Colorblocked Crew rounds out the offerings with three unique colorways, each including stretch-bonded tape down the sides for extra detailing.

Also available will be a collarless, three-placket Short Sleeve Henley offered in navy / white or white / glacier gray, closely resembling the Short Sleeve Polo, a tried and true silhouette. The Tie Breaker Short will be available in three distinct color options - glacier gray, navy / white and agave green / glacier gray, lending way to endless pairing possibilities with their collection counterparts.  

FILA’s roster of sponsored WTA players, including World No.1 Ash Barty, World No.4 Sofia Kenin and World No.6 Karolina Pliskova, hope to turn heads in March wearing the women’s take on tie dye, which features detailing accentuated by playful pops of tie dye / maui blue / rogue red / lavender frost. 

Staples of the women’s collection include the classic Racerback Tank, available in three distinct styles: Printed, High-Neck and Double-Layer. The Printed Racerback Tank serves as the collection’s foundational piece with an all-over tie dye print, while the High-Neck Racerback Tank is available in maui blue, white and sky gray, each with contrasting bonded tape down the side.  

The Double-Layer Racerback Tank puts a contemporary spin on a FILA classic with a contrast print, inside double layer bra which pops through strategically-placed cut-outs in the back and straps for a burst of color. The style is available in white with a contrasting tie dye layer, as well as morning mist with a sky gray bra insert. The Multi-Strap Cami Tank is sure to be a show-stopper, with cross-back strap detailing in each the white and maui blue / rouge red colorways. Rounding out the Tie Breaker tops is the Full Coverage Tank, available in white with glacier grey piping, or a soothing lavender frost foundation piped with rogue red detailing. 

Women’s players will have their choice of sporting one of three skort styles at Miami: the original 13.5 inch skort offered in maui blue / rogue red / lavender frost; a 13.5 inch Skater skort offered in four color combinations including tie dye; and a 14.5 inch skort for a more traditional outfit outlook. The statement-making Tie Breaker Dress with front pockets is a court-to-street crossover that plays well in any setting.

The unisex Tie Breaker Hoodie rounds out the collection as a multi-functional piece perfect for layering.

All FILA sponsored tennis players will hit the courts of Miami showcasing two new, specially designed colorways of the Axilus 2 Energized. The men’s shoe stays true to form in a subtle sweep of tie dye / white / agave green, while the women’s shoe offers a compelling combination of tie dye / white / rogue red. FILA’s popular performance tennis shoe continues to propel the brand’s roster of sponsored players to unparalleled on-court success - including four of the current top eleven-ranked players in the world on the WTA Tour.
