Do you experiment with clothes on court?

...a la Beth Mattek?

I feel like wearing some knee high socks today

I really don't care if I look stupid, at least I experiment and get noticed

One of the reason I love Serena

Re: Do you experiment with clothes on court?

I play it safe. All the guys at my club wear really regular/casual clothing and I'd even feel slightly out of place wearing tennis attire. I think it's a shame actually.

Really? Why? I'd feel out of place if I didn't wear tennis attire.

What country do you live in?

Australia.

At my local club none of the guys wear tennis clothes. Usually it's just a surf branded shirt and board shorts (which I find restrictive), or regular shorts. I don't think I've seen more than a handful of guys wearing a matching set, although the girls do quite often.

Women's tennis sucks.

I don't do Mariah's fragrances. Honestly I would probably smell better if I just pissed on myself.

But OMG yeah we could swap some accessories.

This week I'm gonna wear a, blue hat, red sheer tank top, white short shorts that say Mike's Booty on the back, ankle socks, and some red and white Reeboks.

Fierce. I might even take some pictures for all to see.

Re: Do you experiment with clothes on court?

The only thing I do thats not normal is wearing air force 1's to play tennis. I usually match whatever the colors of the shoes are with my shirt. Then one or two nice wristband or headband, or both. I be looking fly!

Re: Do you experiment with clothes on court?

I only wear dri-fit clothes at least, and have to match brands all the way down to shoes, accessories. It's a ridiculous thing. Generally it's some sort of Adidas Dri-Fit Polo, with contrasting shorts, and a headband.

It got so bad that I bought new shoes and new headbands, when the club team here got uniforms for Nike. I became president/captain this past year and switched us back to Adidas. haha

Re: Do you experiment with clothes on court?

I've done quite a number of Beth's stunts....from super short pants and knee high socks, to crazy colour combos . I'm infamous at the tennis club . Most days I stick to my Reebok get-up though .
