Re: Tsvetana Pironkova, whose outfit left little to the imagination SKIRTS at Wimble
They really do seem to be getting shorter this past year. For some players, they can't be any shorter without permanently putting their underwear (undershorts) on display.
But the standards really are different for sports. Obviously skirts of this length would be a paparazzis' dream if celebrities wore them around town (constant upskirt shots). But in sports, there is swimming, gymnastics, skating, track, etc...tons of sports where plenty of skin is on display.
