Why has eye black not taken off? As used by Mattek Sands for years...

Is it not effective in reducing the glare for tennis players?

I thought she was just going heavy on the eye liner.

Is it a sticker ? Doesn't look very good.

Probably people thought it was just another one of Bethany's wacky fashion choices.

Maybe because it looks like you have a second set of eyebrows underneath your eyes.

Basically, it looks dumb and a visor or cap would do just as well.

Cause she looks ridicolous, if you want to reduce glare use sunglasses.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Because none of these other janky ass girls on tour could pull it off.

P.S - Venus fans need to clean up their attitudes because really, I could go on for months about why SeVen never took off.

It's sad that most of the responses here are about how it looks. I'd hope that pro players use other criteria for their decisions about this. Maybe it really isn't more effective than a visor. Or maybe even the pros are afraid to step out of what is established. Few of them seem to be fans of innovation.

It's also sad not caring about your looks.
