someone should call hindrance on these bright yellow dresses

same colour as the ball, distracting to opponent, not very subtle cheating.

They are VERY yellow.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Designer was clearly blind.

Unflattering to even Ana Ivanovic.

Venus attempts to blind her opponents with yellow...unfortunately for her that after her 2000 run, it backfires. Then she resorted to firework sparkles. Step to the Queen.

no one complained about the way the second ball was just dropped on the court until bjk did it. maybe it does affect some players, just no one has the guts to say something.

in case the kids on here don't know what that refers to .....

"I had a habit where, if my first serve went in, I would drop the second ball back along the ground and Billie Jean [King] said if I did it again, she'd stop play because it was rolling in her line of sight. I did it, she stopped play and complained and that started the ball tucked in the pants."

Persnally I like the yellow shade...its refreshing and colorful much more than the tennis skills for sure!

it could easily distract and camouflage the ball in the hitting zone, and the bright yellow flash out of the corner of the eye could also distract. (have you ever actually played sport? )
