Women's tennis fashion is attracting a lot of attention, especially at Grand Slams when clothing sponsors and players try to showcase the best they have. So let's see what they've come up for the 2010 US Open.
I'll start with adidas, my overall favorite, as they always make outfits that have a glamorous touch but can also be easily worn at everyday practice.
Daniela Hantuchova and Ana Ivanovic are sporting pink adidas Women's Fall adilibria Dress.
Russians Dinara Safina and Maria Kirilenko are clad in adidas Barricade Top and Skort.
Caroline Wozniacki is looking great in Stella McCartney Tennis Performance Dress, contrasting nicely with Tennis Performance Bra Top. Elena Dementieva and Yonex once again failed to impress with design and fellow blogger C Note, who saw the dress live at the US Open, said that it even looks two sizes too big on Dementieva.
As usual for a Grand Slam, Maria Sharapova has two versions of a Nike dress – one for day matches and a darker piece for night. When we reviewed the dresses from the photos prior to the Open they looked somewhat questionable, but when seen on Sharapova they are a perfect match. You can see the dresses closer here and here.
Aravane Rezai and Bethanie Mattek Sands always like to stand out from the crowd, in their own way. However, this time their spotlight was stolen by Nadia Petrova.
Venus Williams is debuting two designs from her revived EleVen collection.
Svetlana Kuznetsova and Agnes Szavay are wearing Fila.
Also in Fila is defending champion Kim Clijsters, who has day and night outfit this time. For her day matches the Belgian is working the Center Court Cap Sleeve Top paired with the Center Court Skort, while at night she's wearing the Center Court Dress.
Lacoste representatives are Gisela Dulko and Samantha Stosur.
Alona Bondarenko's K-Swiss stripes also got noticed, while Chinese ANTA, just like many other brands, opted for purple for Jelena Jankovic's US Open dress.
What are your favorite outfits? We really have a great variety at this year's US Open.
Update: Venus is constantly bringing on new outfits. The latest two, shown above, are inspired by New York fireworks. (photos: © Neal Trousdale, US Open)
