Colour Me Wimbledon

Goodbye Wimbledon white, hello colour. It’s been a little strange to see the multi-national colours taking over the grass courts of Wimbledon for Olympic tennis this week. Polite hand-clapping has also been replaced by the wave.

The World No. 1 hit the grass looking for one thing: gold. R-Fed’s Swiss Olympic outfit is courtesy of Nike (of course) and he kept it simple with the red and white national colours.

Jo-Wilfred Tsonga is a personal fave here at GoS. Coming off his epic 6-3, 3-6, 25-23 victory over Canada’s Milos Raonic, the exuberant Frenchman will be looking to make some noise in the men’s draw. I love the red shoes, but we prefer the all-blue shirt and short combination.

Serena Williams sports the familiar red, white and blue from Nike.

And finally Caroline Wozniacki goes with Danish colours of red and white from Adidas (also Polish colours, MG wants to note). While she’s still looking for that elusive first major, a gold in London would go a long way in quieting her critics. Most likely, she’ll have to get by Serena in the quarters meaning a potential Nike versus Adidas showdown.
