Grand Slams are the places where tennis players want to look their best and sponsors want to use the opportunity of huge publicity to market their products. Let's have a look at what women's tennis stars are sporting during one such event, Roland Garros 2010 in Paris.
Venus Williams raised many eyebrows by her lingerie-like black dress. But the dress raises all the eyebrows when in action!
Sorana Cirstea lost on Day one to Svetlana Kuznetsova, but her adidas dress can win all the awards, if you asked me. Just like Ana Ivanovic's.
Bethanie Mattek-Sands is wearing her cool tube socks and looks sporty. Well, Venus took Bethanie's role of ball boy distractor. Caroline Wozniacki, nice dress but nothing new, really nothing.
Dominika Cibulkova always looks good, in my opinion, while Elena Dementieva is somehow the same all the time.
Flavia Pennetta confirms you can't be wrong with adidas.
Zheng Jie is bringing fresh colors, and whenever there is purple I'm all for it. Maria Sharapova has a nice Nike dress, although it doesn't offer much to talk about (anyway, Venus stole all our words).
Dinara Safina, twice finalist at Roland Garros, lost in the first round, and no outfit can save her.
Adidas + pink were luckier combination for Justine Henin than for Safina, and the Belgian four-time champion won her first-round match in the adidas Competition line. My favorite besides Ivanovic's adidas outfit is Serena Williams' Nike dress.
Zheng is brightening the French Open with her yellow and purple outfit, but Jelena Jankovic took the color yellow to a level of too much. If the gold can help Aravane Rezai win another high-profile title, why not.
We always know what to expect from Svetlana Kuznetsova – the Russian is sticking to her simple style, even for the title defense at a Grand Slam.
