Semifinals have shaped up at the Bank of the West Classic and the Citi Open, Women's Tennis Blog's photographer Jimmie48 is already in Montreal, directing his lens towards the smiling faces of Sabine Lisicki, Agnieszka Radwanska, Petra Kvitova and others practicing for the big event, meanwhile, tennis fashion brands have their minds set on the fast-approaching US Open.
We have already seen fall designs of Stella McCartney for Caroline Wozniacki, Andrea Petkovic and others (I would call it the meat collection because of the colors), Ana Ivanovic and the Adizero clique will be in pink and black glossy outfits, while Venus Williams will probably go for a variety of items from her Herringbone EleVen collection. Half a month ago, when we saw Serena Williams' pink leopard US Open dress, we figured that Nike was ready to produce a shock factor and then we wondered whether Maria Sharapova would join the fashion experiment. Now we can say that she quite did!
Although this is the same style Masha has been working for months (remember her Australian Open and French Open combos with shorts?), her latest tunic top seems to be a much more advanced design, with a futuristic and tech feel. Don't you agree? It's because of its straight lines and the color scheme which includes orange and two shades of grey.
Traditionally, Maria will have another outfit for the US Open night matches – the Nike Women's Fall Maria Night Dress (currently available for $130). Just like Ivanovic, Masha will be in all black.
