The 2017 Roland Garros champion joined an elite squad of fashion visionaries thanks to an instantly iconic DK ONE collaboration that pushed the boundaries of tennis attire to its very limits.
Ostapenko wore so many unforgettable looks in 2022 that it’s hard to pick just one, from her leopard print skirts over the summer to a two-toned outfit that threatened to thwart the All England Club’s all-white edict at Wimbledon.

Long a supporter of Latvian businesses, Ostapenko announced the switch to DK ONE back in January, when she debuted her first kits at the Australian Open. The activewear line began in 2017 and boasts a “Play and win” slogan perfect for the former world No. 5.
Asked about her jungle realness at the WTA Finals in Fort Worth, Ostapenko exclaimed with remarkable savvy: “I just know that this season, this print is quite trendy. “So many brands are doing this, and I was designing this with the owner of the brand. I think it’s quite trendy this year, so I needed to make an outfit like this!”
Ostapenko’s outfits have quickly gone viral, making her forthcoming 2023 debut a can’t-miss affair as fans ponder what the budding designer will think up next.
