Rounding out coverage of the remaining adidas styles hitting the Australian Open are two of my favorite players/personalities Ana Ivanovic and Jo Wilfried Tsonga. Above, Ivanovic (who at the moment is on to round 3), wears the spring adizero dress in vivid yellow with tech grey, $85, and the adizero Tempai II, $120 (also worn by Angelique Kerber) . Tsonga sports the adizero polo, $65 in white with vivid yellow and spring adizero short, $50 in tech grey. I love this particular shirt/short combo; you can see some of the other pieces in the new group on the adidas guys here. Find the men's looks here and women's styles here. adidas.com and adidas sport shops also sell the complete lines.
