Re: Australian Open referees will double as fashion police to stamp out skimpy outfit
Much as I enjoy looking at fit attractive women, I'd hate to see tennis reduced to the level of beach volleyball. On the other hand, I can't recall seeing too many outfits that were designed to be overly revealing. I mean most clothing manufacturers are paying these young women substantial sums of money to convince other girls and women--most of whom are not in the market for outfits that will allow them to flash guys like me on the next court--to buy their togs.
There have been a few famous wardrobe malfunctions, and some incidents I recall where the women were sweating so profusely that certain physical features were, ahem, "highlighted." But that was back in the day when white was a far more popular color (there's a reason they have wet t-shirt contests and not wet oxford shirt contests).
But those were exceptions. Again, most suburban housewives who trundle down to Sports Authority to buy tennis outfits for themselves and their daughters don't want outfits that are going to show their goodies to the whole country club, and as a result Nike, adidas, Izod, etc. aren't likely to trot out outfits for their stars that make them look like strippers. It's a nonissue.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
