olympics: nike in red, white, and blue

TSF’s sad that we won’t get to see Maria Sharapova in her kit for the Beijing Olympics. So we’ll have to do with what we’re given:

Serena Williams wears a patriotic version of the Doubles Dress that she debuted earlier this year. In her first Olympics singles match ever (she won gold in doubles with Venus in 2000), she took out Olga Govortsova of Belarus 6-3, 6-1.

Zheng Jie took advantage of playing on her home court in her win over Hungarian Agnes Szavay.

Notice the ghosted pattern on the back panel of the top. (Thanks for a reader’s help with this one.)

Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova brushed aside veteran Ai Sugiyama 6-2 7-5.

  1. And I didnt watch Li Na’s match, but all the Chinese women seem to be wearing the same thing, White tops with some asian inspired patterns on the back, and a white skirt.

    Except Peng Shuai who has an inverted color version.

  2. Agnes Szavay is from Hungary, not Russia. Shame she couldn’t put Jie away.

  3. oops. that was an earlier reference to Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova. Thanks for the fact-checking, guys! I need an editor…. ;-)
