The Australian Open Finalists’ Outfits: The Sponsors Tell You to Buy Them Now!

The 2015 Australian Open Men’s and Women’s Singles Finalists are playing for the championship. Get a piece of the action by wearing their outfits. Don’t know where to buy them and how much they cost? This post will help you.

For two weeks, we have seen tennis players at the 2015 Australian Open wear the same outfits over and over again. There’s a reason for that. There’s also a reason why those clothes (or variations of them) are available in stores now. That reason is for you to buy them. That’s marketing for you.

Some outfits looked great. Some outfits looked hideous. At the end of the day (or tournament in this case), only the outfits of the tennis stars matter. That’s why they are paid the big bucks.

Federer and Nadal obviously got the best kits from Nike. Does anyone want to buy the outfits that handed Roger and Rafa early eliminations? Nah, I’ll pass on those. I’m buying what the winners were wearing.

Here are the outfits of the 2015 Australian Open Men’s Singles finalists, where to buy them, and how much they cost:

Novak Djokovic

Buy the shirt at Uniqlo for US$ 49.90. The white version which Novak also wore is also available for the same price. (see 9983:JP latest stock information)

Andy Murray

Buy the shirt at Under Armour for US$ 29.99. The black version he wears for night matches is also available for the same price. (see UA:US latest stock information)

Serena Williams

I can’t find the exact outfit online, but Nike sells this for US$ 55 under the heading Serena Williams. (see NKE:US latest stock information)

Maria Sharapova

Buy the dress at Nike for US$ 200.

In case you’re wondering, I actually do play tennis. I play good. If we believe the marketing hype, I’ll play even better wearing the Uniqlo and Under Armour shirts.
