TOKYO -- White and sea blue infused with indigo navy and flash red combine for the 2020 Melbourne Collection. Inspired by the bright blue courts at the year’s first major, the sleek, but simple design also features red accents to represent power and confidence.
The Australian summer is known to provide some of the hottest on-court temperatures for tennis players, which is why the sweat absorbent, quick-drying fabric and UV reduction infused in the materials is so important to the players’ success.
“With Yonex, I can trust in clothing designed to work with my movement on the court,” said Stan Wawrinka (SUI), who depends on VERYCOOL technology to absorb heat and perspiration for a significant cooling effect.
The Melbourne Collection is completed with the ECLIPSION3 shoes, featuring enhanced stability, which will launch after the Australian Open, and the FUSIONREV3 that boosts optimal performance fit with asymmetrical laces.
Yonex continues to be the leading brand for head-to-toe athletes and has a growing line-up of main draw players. In the offseason, Steve Johnson joined Wawrinka, Hubert Hurkacz, Radu Albot, Casper Ruud, Ricardas Berankis, and Yoshihito Nishioka to wear the Yonex gear on the men’s side, while Dayana Yastremska and Anastasija Sevastova represent the women.
The 2020 Melbourne Collection is now available worldwide at participating retailers
