Tennis stars are now wall art in Melbourne.

Launching its new line of Australian Open apparel, ellesse enlisted Feliciano López, Elina Svitolina, Monica Puig and Pat Cash as models for Melbourne graffiti artist Daniel Wenn's street art.

Wenn painted the tennis mural near Melbourne's famed Hosier Lane then joined the players for a photo shoot.

"Melbourne is one of the street art capitals of the world, so painting a tennis-themed mural seemed the perfect way to reveal ellesse's new performance wear for 2015," Cash said. "It was a lot of fun."

Svitolina, seeded No. 26 at the Australian, could provide the brand with international exposure. Svitolina opens against Jana Cepelova and if the seeds hold true to form she would face world No. 1 Serena Williams in the third round.

Tommy Haas, currently recovering from 2014 shoulder surgery, has also signed on to wear ellesse apparel this season.
