In the case of Venus Williams (one of my favorites at least), I would LOVE to see her wear the new stuff from Ralph Lauren. It's so simple yet elegant and just very much something she would wear. Plus I think she looks great in polo shirts!
No offense, just my opinion... but as far as designers are concerned I think Ralph Lauren is the absolute worst, ugliest, most overpriced CRAP I've ever seen. It hurts my eyes and my sense of faith in mankind. :p
But I would LOVE for designers to have more input in sports... after all some athletes are full blown celebrities... so instead of wearing a frumpy nike shirt, why not shift into 5th gear with a cute prada ensemble or a delicious dior dress???
But yeah, I'd definitely have Hingis/Dulko wear Dior's red/gold/green winter collection... just amazing... and it would certainly send more of a fashion statement then some of the :tape: players wear now.

Definitely not Nike. She looked good in Reebok, and better in Adidas. And looked nice in Polo/Ralph Lauren.
Probably Adidas as my first choice, although something other than their current roadkill pattern. Preferably a classic look, either a dress or shirt/skirt (not too tight), and in a simple color pattern. None of that crazy stuff, like Nike's shower curtain pattern from a few years ago.
Fortunately, my current fave is a lot like Julie Halard-Decugis, in that all sorts of clothes look good on her.
