I don't remember when it started and which player started that trend but it's obviously a must have now. What's more annoying are the irrelevant players having both day & night dresses like Ivanovic last year whom we missed with a blink of an eye. Now this year we have irrelevant players like Wozniacki and MM tournament queen Sharapova having both as well. Some fouled dresses should not be allowed to have a duplicate version like Lena D's Yonex barf bag. So what happens when the other slams starts having matches at night? Will they the players do the same?

Wozniacki who reached the final last year is irrelevant? :spit:

Well, she was pretty much a non-factor in the finals. I don't recall her putting up much resistance in the finals or beating anyone of note to even get there in the first place. :shrug:

Anyway would be interesting to know who initiated this trend and when it started.

She beat Sveta, a USO champion and finalist who had just won the FO.
Who is relevant? Someone who hasnt won the USO & is not holding a major?

Wozniacki is wearing Stella McCartney exclusives, and Sharapova has a huge Nike deal, so expect them to be on short list of players with day/night outfits

I think it was Masha 2006 wasn't it?

She was the only one who I remembered having a day and a night dress.

the red one, no?

I think they should all just stick to one outfit per grandslam, especially Ana and Maria as we only get to see each dress like once

I agree especially since they lose so early in GS you barely get to see the outfit

Serena in 2004, no? Thought she had the biker look with the denim skirt for night and the black dress for day sessions. I'm not too sure though

Serena had 3 outfits that year but I wasn't sure if she wore each at specific times only. She rotated all 3 (denim skirt, short shorts and dress)

The tradition of night and day I think started really in 2007, I mean yeah Sharapova had the year before two dresses, so she could have technically been the first, but on a consistent basis with multiple players I think 2007.

Wozniacki served for the first set and her moonballs were giving Kim quite a bit of trouble actually. :unsure:

You guys are using the word "tradition" as a euphemism for the term "marketing ploy," right?

I didn't realize it was a tradition.

I'm pretty sure this goes back to serena's catsuit in 2002. didn't she only wear that at night? and then capriati in 2003 wore a [ridiculous] star spangled top, also only at night. obviously, night matches are on in prime time so players try to bring it.

The first person that I remember who did it , was Serena and it was 2 years before Sharapova in 2006 :lol: :lol:(She specifically stated that it was her 'out in the new york night' dress ). I wonder if there was anyone before her who specifically wore night and day dresses.

Serena Williams 2004 US Open -

Night dress (She wore in the night matches against Sandra Kleinova and Jennifer Capriati)-

Exactly. Caro, Ana etc are all trying to be as exlusive and glamorous as Maria now by also sporting day and night outfits at the US Open.

Lacoste and Golovin introduced a night outfit in 2006 that was quickly used as an example by Nike and Sharapova.
