US Open 2011 Continued--Traditionalism Lives On

Ana Ivanovic in Adidas, Maria Sharapova in Nike, Na Li in Nike, Pauline Parmentier in Lacoste, and Caroline Wozniacki in Stella McCartney for Adidas.
As adventurous as I can be in the trends I choose to wear, I usually fall back on the classics.  Tennis apparel is no exception.  While I loathe to be absolutely boring, I do stick with traditional shapes in skirts, tops, and dresses.  I rarely wear shorts to play unless my laundry bin is filling up and I haven't had a chance to refill my limited rotation of a tennis wardrobe.  There is something lovely about the traditions involved in tennis, and I am remiss if I attempt to mess with it to a large degree.  The ladies above exemplify (although, I will say, Caroline tends to wear some weird stuff from time to time) the classic tennis apparel that I love.  I don't mind a ruffle or splash of color here and there... but please, leave the crazy at home. 
Venus Williams and her Eleven line.
Venus always pushes the envelope when it comes to her outfits on the court.  This black dress with the lace back is actually one of her tamer options.  I'm just not a fan.  Isn't that lace uncomfortable as she tries to scramble around the court??
Galina Voskoboeva in Ellesse.
I actually have no idea who Voskoboeva is... and I know a lot of tennis players.  As I was trolling through tennis outfits from the US Open, I happened upon her ruffly concoction.  I like portrait collars, and as I mentioned, I like my share of ruffles, but this just looks weird to me.  Thoughts?
Christina McHale in Adidas.
Christina McHale was a bit of a Cinderella story.  She hails from neighboring New Jersey and upset Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli (seeded No. 8) to move forward to her first Third Round appearance at a grand slam.  The shapes of her top and bottom are classic and I love them.  However, the print on the skirt make me scratch my head and think... WTF??  I saw this outfit on several Adidas-sponsored players... and I shuddered every time at the garish print and color-coordinated shoes.  I will admit though, this is NOT anywhere near the worst I have seen.


  1. Ahahah! YES! The crazy should be left at home and remain off the court. I'm jealous you get a chance to flaunt some skirt action. Love tennis outfits!
