Our reader Pat expressed wish to see Ana Ivanovic’s adidas designs featured as part of our retrospections of WTA players’ 2008 outfits, and we’re happy to make wishes of our dedicated readers come true.
In 2008 Ana Ivanovic wore the same dress at both the Australian Open and Roland Garros, in different colors though. That will be the case in 2009 too. Ana will wear the violet adilibria adidas dress at the first Grand Slam of the year, while the blue version of the same dress is reserved for the French open.
At Wimbledon 2008 Ana Ivanovic made an unexpected switch. She was supposed to wear the white dress during Wimbledon, but very soon into the tournament she abandoned it and switched to the other white adidas piece.
At the 2009 Australian Open Ana Ivanovic will wear the same adidas dress she sported at the 2008 Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha. You can see more pictures of Ivanovic’s future tennis dresses here.
Looking at these pictures, I like all Ivanovic's dresses, they are simple and nice. The thing that annoyed many tennis fans, including me, was that Ivanovic sported the same outfits at too many tournaments, which was boring.
As always, I will pick my favorite, it's definitely this latest violet dress. I didn't like it at first, but when I saw it on Ana I realized it was a great choice. The second place would go to the Aussie Open and Roland Garros dresses. Which of Ana's 2008 outfits do you like most?
