Representing a whopping total of 86 major singles titles were household names such as Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras who starred in the original commercial, Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova and eight-time Grand Slam winner John McEnroe taking up the umpire’s chair. Also in attendance were up-and-coming NikeCourt athletes Eugenie Bouchard, Madison Keys and Nick Kyrgios. Worth an estimated $1.1 billion USD in total, this gathering of exceptional tennis athletes goes to show Nike’s exceptional weight within the sport today. Watch yesterday’s proceedings below.
