The colorful tee features a Tennis Tree with "Green Your Game" on one side of the trunk and "US Open 2009" on the other side of the trunk. The eco friendly theme is printed on a 100% organic preshrunk cotton t-shirt. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. The shirt also features double-needle stitching throughout and a seamless topstitched collar.
Willams, who won the US Open in 2000 and 2001, is designing the shirt as part of EleVen clothing line, which was launched in 2007.
A portion of the profits from the t-shirt will benefit Unisphere, Inc., the non-profit organization that maintains and preserves Flushing Meadows Corona Park, home of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
