Usually their outfits have a sports bra fitted into them, so no need!

I have to/hate to say I'm a little disappointed this morning, both by the outfit and the result.
I don't like black on maria (and I hate black and pink on anyone!) and those bottoms look like an old pair of shorts I USED to own!
As far as the result of the match goes, well, tell me, have you ever heard of this girl before? Me neither and I follow the women's game really closely and Maria, who should be thinking soon of winning the US Open, gets herself down a break in the first set to her. (What's even more galling is the fact that Vaidisova follows her onto court and wipes the floor with a tried and tested opponent, like Maria should have done).
Now, I know Maria eventually won and everyone will point to the fact that it's her first match back after a layoff, yada yada yada. I'm just not getting the vibe, you know? Maria needs to want to kill these girls in the early rounds, the way venus, serena, steffi, monica always did, 'cos it sends more than just a little message to your opponents further down the line. Trust me - Maria won't win this tournament and that makes me sad.

Well IMO this has been Marias problem for a long time. She usually has slow starts or lapses in level of play that might last even for a whole set. Against lesser players she gets away with it, but against players like Henin and Mauresmo she canīt afford these bad patches, like we saw in the Wimbledon semi.

Many people suggest she needs to include more variety among other things to be able to compete for Slams again. Personally I feel she is technically good enough to challenge for slams and regaining the #1 despite the flaws in her game. But she needs confindence to get rid of these bad patches, and she can only get that by playing more and hopefully stay uninjured. Her stamina is also a questionmark but I feel itīs less of a problem.

heres a bit of an interview:

In search of her first title of the summer hardcourt season, Sharapova fell 4-1 behind to the feisty 18-year-old qualifier before warming to the task of winning the match.

"I felt pretty good after she broke me early," Sharapova told reporters.

"I felt like I made her play a little bit after that and when she was serving at 70 mph, I took advantage of that. I was moving well, seeing the ball well."

Bardina surprised Sharapova when they began their warm-up by starting at the net and also called for a trainer to treat a shoulder injury when trailing 4-1 in the second set.

"She pulled all the tricks out of her bag except for the win," Sharapova added.

"I don't know anything about her except that every time I see her dad, he walks barefoot. I think that's cool."
