To add on to the excitement of season ending grand slam, NIKE unveiled its US Open gears for Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams at a Nike-built, regulation-sized tennis court in the heart of NYC.

Hopefully some of you guys read the announcement earlier and headed to the event located at 23rd Street and Broadway earlier today.

Except for Sharapova, those who joined Federer, Nadal, Serena at the event were John McEnroe, Victoria Azarenka, Gael Monfils and Li Na.

According to NIKE, Federer's shirt was inspired by the subway signs of NYC, Serena's by cocktail party attire and Nadal's by the streets of NYC and its’ signature yellow taxi cabs!
