What's your guess on the color? I'm thinking green or red. I can't remember her wearing either of those colors too often.

don't think so...
I mean, I can't see something green or red being class and glamourous as her last outfit
maybe something white or even black
or dark blue
would add more class

but I honestly I believe that's all about desegins
I'm really curious... I still think that is hard to pass last year outfit
even the bag was WOW!! :eek:

But last year she has got to dresses Why on this us open dont have dress for day and night matches?

i think she'll still have 2 dresses.. one for day and one for night...

i dont know what to expect, last time she was a defending grand slam champion she wore gold! (with white as it was wimbledon)
so maybe they'll be some gold worked in there somewhere!

but im sure she's gonna look great as always...

for me, I'm much more curious at the "night dress"
I remenber something interesting here on Brazil, here we have tennis prograns during the USO to keep us informed about what's going on there
and a reporter said that during his time taking pics on USO (last year) he was there with loads of others reporters, on Arthur Ashe, to get ready to take Maria's pics during her match and he said something interesting: "I was getting ready and thinkig that for me Maria was never all that amazign woman as some people see her, but then she cames to the court, wearing that amazing dress and she's sooooo tall, something that you just can believe case you're close to her... and her golden hair bouncing side to side and I believe that me and all the other reports sort of were in slow motion/open mouth moment in there that we took a time to finally start to getting pics of her"

So that's the kinda feeling I'm hoping reporters to get again when Maria finally get's on court, again. :D :bounce: :yeah:

Num foi o Dácio não..
foi aquele reporter loiro que fez uma participação especial lá....

acho q o Dácio nunca admitiria que a Maria é bonita :lol:
ele é gay e apoixanodo pelo Federer....
tipo, adoro os comentários dele (embora prefiro os da ESPN - são mais engraçados)
mas não aguento aquela loucura que ele tem pelo Federer :rolleyes:

I agree that the day one was more for a real tennis outfit
but the night one was one of those dresses that was like: "wow! if was a bit longer I could definatelly use him for go out or a party"
it was just full of glam
make me even forget that I was about to watch a tennis match...
I was like "is a runway show now?!"
the bag..everything....

was a perfect dress for wear while you hold the champion trophy :yeah:

my all time fav is still the old Wimby'04 dress :worship:

seems like our expectations are high, regarding the night outfit. Maria said last year she was inspired by "breakfast at Tiffany's" does anyone know if she's mentioned or dropped a hint of what the inspiration behind this years USO outfit is? I know, I know....we all find out today, this is just so nerve racking.

okay people... haven't found any pics yet, but here is something interesting:

Sharapova to don dresses depicting N.Y.'s skyline at U.S. Open

NEW YORK -- When Maria Sharapova defends her U.S. Open title next week, she'll be wearing tennis dresses decorated with graphic interpretations of New York's skyline.

The designs, created in collaboration with Nike senior designer Colleen Sandieson, were shown off at a news conference on Wednesday.

Like last year, Sharapova will have one outfit dedicated for day play and another for night matches.

"Nike has always understood my desire to make a big impression in New York," she said in a statement. "And the dresses that we've worked on for the U.S. Open have always looked as good as they feel when I'm playing. This year is especially exciting because the designs are inspired by the city itself."

The night dress is a bright flaming red -- in honor of the Big Apple -- in a flared shift silhouette. It's a sleek garment made of a breathable wicking jersey and constructed with a no-sew technique with seams bonded with heat and silicone instead of thread.

There are more than 600 Swarovski crystals incorporated into the design, which makes the dress sparkle. Additionally, there are three crystal buttons down the back, creating a keyhole effect.

For the daytime, the look is similar but without the flashiness of the crystals. The dress is mostly white with a gray skyline image against a black backdrop. It has a scoop-back design that facilitates movement, according to Sandieson.

Performance is always the priority, Sandieson said, but she and Sharapova strive for designs that marry function with fashion.

"She has a fantastic game and I have a lot of respect for that but she has a great eye for detail. She's got a style that's very natural to her, and she also knows what she likes and doesn't like," Sandieson told the Associated Press.

Sharapova, 20, has become a player in the fashion world and has sponsorship deals with Parlux Fragrances, handbag company Samantha Thavasa and watchmaker Tag Heuer in addition to Nike. She follows Venus and Serena Williams and Anna Kournikova as tennis players who are also seen as style icons.

"She wears clothes that a lot of other women would like to own and look good in," said Susan Kaufman, editor of People StyleWatch.

Kaufman also notes that today's tennis stars are photographed when they're off the court, too, giving more of a glimpse of their personal style.

The U.S. Open starts on Monday. Sharapova is the No. 2 seed.

I don't like this outfit...I think the anothers dresses for US Open were much better...
Like I said in the pic thread look like more a ice skating dress than a tennis dress...
But I loved her new Prince tennis bag
