Re: 2013 Outfits thread (US Open Series and US Open)
2013 has been a massive flop for Tennis Designs IMO.
Vika and Serena were okay but rather poor given what they've worn in the past. And no matter how biased Sharapova-Fans are, her dresses have been abysmal for her standards. Australian Open was okay, French Open was shit and I can't even say much about her Wimbly dress since she lost that early. But already the fact that all her dresses had the same kind of straps is poor in my opinion.
AdiZero had SO MANY terrible outfits in the past, it wasn't exactly that bad this year, but still not great.
And Stella McCartney... For me it just looks to similar to previous lines and also, regarding the Wozniacki US Open dress, Stella just tried way too hard deliver something. I'd love to see her coming up with something exceptional... When Makiri wore that pink dress at AO in 2006, it was really some kind of Tennis fashion revelation. But not anymore.
Other brands like Fila and Lacoste have been solid this year, but not more than this.
The brands which impressed me most this year were EleVen and Under Armour. Venus really created some stunning outfits and also showed some creativity with the water- and python prints. Sloane Stephens is the best dressed player this year in my opinion. Under Armour really goes for sporty designs in bright colours and they just fit perfectly on Sloane. I really hope she stays with them and doesn't sign a contract with Nike or Adidas.
