Nike Tennis Takes To The Streets With Its Superstars

Full screen

Twenty years ago we saw Andre Agassi (rockin’ a bandana) and Pete Sampras battle it out on the streets of New York to the sounds of WAX, in what became the groundbreaking Nike street tennis advertisement.

This week, the action re-exploded with NikeCourt athletes past and present, as well as a few Nike+ members, taking to the street-turned-court in Manhattan to launch the new NikeCourt collection.

Veterans Agassi and Sampras were accompanied by a star-studded cast, featuring the who’s who of tennis from Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Serena Williams to Nick Kyrgios and Maria Sharapova. All in all, these tennis legends represented 86 major singles titles on the court, bringing an explosion of on-court action to Manhattan’s Meatpacking district.
