Serena Williams, Kei Nishikori and the 14 eye-catching tennis kits at the French Open

Check out the outfits of the world’s best tennis players in Paris at the second grand slam of 2019

Finishing matches that were held up by bad light from the previous day, as was the case against Fernando Verdasco at the French Open on Monday, will no doubt be foremost in Kyle Edmund’s mind.

But the British No 1 did spare a moment to think about his Nike kit, and has conceded not being a fan. It is, admittedly, a strange outfit – especially the shorts.

Meanwhile, also the talk of the tennis circuit is Serena Williams’ black-and-white jacket, which bears words such as “champion”, “queen”, “goddess” and “mother” in French.

“Those are things that mean a lot to me and reminders for me – and for everyone that wants to wear it,” Williams said. “Just remind everyone that they can be champions and are queens.”

Williams loves to make statements through her outfits, as she has done many times in the past – on and off court.

Plenty of other players are wearing interesting outfits at Roland-Garros this summer. Some are simple and, arguably, boring, such as the one worn by Roger Federer. Others are catchier, such as the one Kei Nishikori has managed to pull off.
