Of course we can all say Amy Frazier - but lets not.

Elena Dementieva is the earliest I can remember ... ?

Anna started wearing them before Andy:D, and I think it was either her or Venus who started it:confused:

Other people just wore the visor.
VENUS made it fashionable. :)

When VENUS wore the visor in her infamous, 2001 OZ "slipping top" outfit. LOL

I think Helen Wills Moody stole the idea from Amy.

if we're going to credit this to Amy, we might as well credit it to Nancy Richey

I think it should be pretty obvious that no one rocks a black Yonex visor better than ME!:cool: You'll see when I start qualifying for the US Open in 5 or 6 years lol

Okay let's take a look. You've got two kinds of visors. The Venus/Amy Frazier flat brim visor look, and the more updated Kournikova/Roddick, etc. curved brim look. That's the style everyone is going with these days, and I think it looks pretty good.
