Video: Wozniacki, Robson, Kirilenko play on mirrored court for adidas launch
January 13, 2013 — Prior to the start of the Australian Open, WTA players Caroline Wozniacki, Laura Robson and Maria Kirilenko took part in the launch of the adidas by Stella McCartney tennis collection by playing on a a very unique surface — a mirrored court!
To globally launch the collection and bring to life its core benefits of style and performance functionality, adidas ambassadors Wozniacki, Kirilenko and Robson played tennis in an environment like no other – the world’s first mirror court. At 11.4m long x 8.5m wide x 3m high, the court offered a living kaleidoscope of moving reflections.
The range will be worn by these ladies (and injured fellow WTA player, Andrea Petkovic) during the 2013 Grand Slams, showcasing its leading design qualities, standout aesthetic and performance functionality.
“I always play better when I feel good, that is very important to me,” says Caroline Wozniacki. “The new adidas by Stella McCartney barricade range makes me feel secure and comfortable on court. The bright color blocking and advanced technology presented in each item I’m wearing gives me the confidence to focus solely on my own performance on court.”
Inspired by the ready to wear collection, the range plays on Stella McCartney’s use of feminine lines that flatter and enhance the female form on court. Prices range from $80 for the adidas by Stella McCartney barricade Tank and Skirt which Andrea Petkovic and other players will wear; $150 for Caroline’s Wozniacki’s Dress, and $180 for the adidas adipower barricade footwear.
Below is the video from the event, where the three ladies hit around on the mirrored court and talk about the importance of a good and flirty fit while playing on the tennis court!
