Elena Rybakina Embraces “Tenniscore” Style in Dubai Photo Shoot

Elena Rybakina, the WTA Tour’s reigning cool-girl, has showcased her impeccable “tenniscore” style in a recent photo shoot in Dubai. The world No. 4, known for her on-court prowess and off-court fashion sense, has embraced the trend that seamlessly blends vintage tennis aesthetics with everyday athleisure.

Rybakina’s photo shoot, captured by Kazakhstani photographer Timur Uteshbekov, features her in a series of preppy, tennis-inspired looks curated by Dubai-based stylist Azhar Yeleussizova. Against a sunny beach backdrop, she exudes a casual-cool vibe in a white cropped polo-neck jumper and matching pleated skirt from Sandro Paris.

The “tenniscore” trend, which peaked during the COVID-19 pandemic, has resurfaced as fashion consumers embrace “quiet luxury” and timeless pieces. Rybakina’s outfit exemplifies this aesthetic, with minimal branding and understated accessories taking center stage. She accessorizes with classic black Celine sunglasses, high athletic socks, and white platform Walk’n’Dior sneakers adorned with Christian Dior’s signature Plan de Paris motif.

Beyond her on-court achievements, Rybakina’s style has garnered attention. In 2022, she made a fashion statement at the Wimbledon champion’s ball by pairing a delicate white tulle Monique Lhuillier gown with Gucci “Ace” sneakers.

The photo shoot serves as a signal to luxury fashion brands that Rybakina is open to collaborations. With the 2024 Paris Olympics approaching, where fashion will play a prominent role, it remains to be seen if she will secure a major maison’s sponsorship, following in the footsteps of Carlos Alcaraz (Louis Vuitton), Jannik Sinner (Gucci), and Emma Raducanu (Christian Dior).

In the meantime, Rybakina will focus on her title defense at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. Despite recent setbacks due to illness, she remains a formidable force on the court, eager to add to her seven career titles.
