Adi Dassler, the founder of adidas, once said, “I understood that equipment can help an athlete perform better.” He wasn’t wrong, and he’d be proud of his legacies latest creation.

Ape to Gentleman were invited to shoot the superb new Adidas tennis range, to be worn by players competing at Wimbledon 2015.

Before we get into the detail it’s worth noting, the quality of the garments and fit were incredible, we take our hats off to adidas.
