FILA Athletes to Showcase Deuce Court & Heritage Collections Through Summer Hardcourt Swing
(FILA North America) - FILA sponsored tennis players will debut two new collections in time for the 2022 summer hardcourt swing: the Deuce Court Collection and the latest edition of the brand’s iconic Heritage Collection.
Deuce Court Collection
Karolina Pliskova, Barbora Krejcikova, Ekaterina Alexandrova and Diego Schwartzman will gear up for the season’s final Grand Slam wearing the Deuce Court collection at the Western & Southern Open. The collection presents an eye-catching mix of multi-dimensional prints in soothing tones of mediterranean blues and whites.
Pliskova will wear the Deuce Court Racerback Tank with a colorblocked pattern down the center, while Krejickova has selected the Deuce Court Printed Racerback Tank. Both athletes will pair their tanks with the 13.5” skort, breaking up the patterned look with a solid white contrast color waistband. To finish out the women’s collection, the Deuce Court Printed Dress highlights the watercolor blue hues with additional slimming princess seams at the front for a flattering, flawless look.
Schwartzman and Opelka will sport head-turning looks in the Deuce Court Short Sleeve Printed Crew with a detailed rib collar, paired to the matching lightweight Deuce Court Printed Short. The look is interchangeable with the Deuce Court Short available in white with textured mesh sides panels.
The newest iteration of FILA’s annual Heritage collection will be worn by Krejcikova, Schwartzman, and Opelka, as well as John Isner and Brandon Nakashima, throughout the US hardcourt summer swing. This year’s edition offers a classically unique spin on the brand’s iconic looks with magenta, turquoise, and yellow striped piecing, piping, and prints perfectly complemented with signature red, white, and blue details.
Krejcikova will sport the Heritage Halter Tank in magenta purple and the Heritage Racerback Tank in buttercup yellow. FILA navy details throughout the neckline and back straps of the tank accentuate the navy waistline in both the magenta purple and buttercup 13.5” Heritage Color Blocked Skort, creating a monochromatic look with a flattering silhouette. The Halter Tank will also be available in deep teal with classic FILA navy details and pops of buttercup, while the Heritage Racerback Tank is available in a crisp white.
Also featured in the collection is a multi-colored Heritage Tank in four different unique vertical-striped color combinations. This tank pairs perfectly with the Heritage Double Layer short, with buttercup yellow and deep teal outer layers and peek-a-boo printed forza ball short in the collection’s vertical-striped color combinations.
The sleek and simple Heritage Racerback Dress rounds out the collection. Available in white and buttercup yellow, the dress has slimming printed side panels with princess seams at front and back, contrast color binding at front neckline, and inside Forza ball short.
On the ATP side, Opelka, Schwartzman and Isner will each sport their own variations of the Heritage Collection. Schwartzman and Opelka will pair the collection’s Heritage Stripe Short Sleeve Crew with breathable mesh inserts at side and underarm panel and Heritage Knit Short with contrast color side panel piecing. Schwartzman’s crew will be in buttercup yellow with deep teal stripes across the chest, complementing the deep teal shorts with pops of buttercup details. Opelka will showcase FILA’s signature red, white, and navy with a crisp white crew with red and navy stripes across the chest. A vibrant red short rounds out the kit, creating a look that pays homage to both FILA tradition and America’s homecourt Grand Slam tournament.
Taking his own spin on the collection, Isner’s fall wardrobe will feature two uniquely-colored Heritage Short Sleeve Solid Polos that encapsulate all that the versatile Heritage Collection has to offer - deep teal complemented by a FILA navy and buttercup neck trim, and a traditional white with classic FILA navy and red trim. Isner will also don the Heritage Stretch Woven Short in deep teal, featuring a yarn-dye elastic waistband and front angled pockets.
The Heritage Collection honors FILA’s iconic tradition with archival-inspired tracksuits for both men and women. The men’s tracksuit focuses on signature FILA colors with a classic white jacket with navy, red, and white striped detail throughout the collar, wrists, and bottom; while the track pant highlights the tried and true FILA navy with a vibrant red stripe down the leg. On the women's side, the matching white/navy full zip jacket and navy track pants feature contrast color side leg detailing.
Throughout the summer hardcourt swing, Alexandrova, Li, and Opelka will show off FILA’s newest performance tennis shoe, the Speedserve Energized; while Pliskova, Krejcikova and Schwartzman will wear the Axilus 2 Energized.
