It only happens a few times each year, so you know when Sneaker News turns our attention to cutting edge tennis shoes, we’re getting close to a Grand Slam event.   The Australian Open is the first of the four major tournaments each year, and Nike’s sending two of the top three men, two of the top five ladies and two up and comers in fresh new gear.  Arguable GOAT and four-time Aussie winner Roger Federer gets a Swiss-style kit along with neon accents on his Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9, while arch nemesis Rafael Nadal opts for green on his shirt but more of a focus on bright blue with the latest Air Max Courtballistec 4.3.  Young Croation Bernard Tomic proved with his upset of the 22 seed in Round 1 that he’s deserving of recognition if not yet a signature sneaker, as is the case for ladies 5-seed Na Li.  Nike keeps the WMNS side on equal footing thanks to a new Air Max Mirabella 3 for Serena Williams along with Maria Sharapova’s Lunar Speed 3 lowtops.  Click through to check out the entire collection and let us know who your money’s on down under.

Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9

Nike introduces the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 – a high-performance tennis shoe designed specifically for tennis superstar Roger Federer. For the Zoom Vapor Tour 9, Tinker Hatfield was presented with the challenge of creating a lightweight, breathable shoe that could withstand the rigors of the game of tennis; that balance is a bit difficult to find as running is dependent on rhythm while tennis hinges on blasts of movements in 360-degree direction. Using the innovative ‘finger’ fit system, which allows the upper to mold precisely to the contours of the foot, Hatfield created a shoe that feels like a running shoe, but performs for Federer’s game. The combination of Zoom and Lunar cushioning provides an unparalleled level of comfort, while the rubber overlays improve durability at all major high-wear points. Check out the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 as well as a video with Hatfield and Federer below to get a full overview of this latest innovation in Nike Tennis footwear.

Is the 2011 U.S. Open a must-win for Roger Federer? He certainly has his work cut out for him, as the worst-case scenario for the Swiss tennis player has him facing the #1 ranked Novak Djokovic in the Semi-Finals and #2 ranked Rafael Nadal in the Finals. If Federer can’t pull out this Major win, it would halt his streak of nine straight seasons of winning at least one Major tournament, but even if he falls short, that won’t take away from the greatness and other-worldly mystique that Federer has built over the last decade. Nike’s already got 2012 in its sights for Roger, as it plans to outfit him in the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 SL; it features an all-new tech-package, opting for lightweight and breathable materials, a unique upper that allows for maximum flexion, and Nike Zoom for supreme comfort. Accompanying the Zoom Vapor Tour 9 SL is the Nike RF Smash Clay Polo, which should keep Roger cool and composed during his matches. Check out the images of Roger Federer’s 2012 Paris Collection after the jump and let us know who you think will win the final leg of the Grand Slam! via CK.

Nike Lunar Vapor 8 Tour – Black – Neo Lime

nike lunar vapor 8 tour black neo lime 1 Nike Lunar Vapor 8 Tour – Black – Neo Lime

After falling out in the semis at this year’s Australian Open, Roger Federer is currently not the defending champion at any grand slam.  It’s staggering to think that this breaks a streak dating back to July 2003, and yet more proof that were he to spontaneously combust or otherwise drop off the face of the earth, the Swiss Maestro is the greatest post-Sampras player and a serious contender for the GOAT.  Will Federer be able to regain his championship form later this year?  A win at the French Open seems unlikely with Rafael Nadal practically owning Roland Garros but there’s no doubt Fed’s footwear game is in order for another Grand Slam run.  Here’s a new Nike Lunar Vapor 8 Tour colorway in black with lime accents, the type of exuberant color scheme you’d expect to see at the Aussie or maybe later this year at the US Open.  Click through to get a better look at this new colorway and grab yours today from RMKStore.

Style: 429991-001
