We had a Fashion Thread earlier in the year...how about for the Clay Season!

Nothing new. Same old same old. We won't see anything new until Roland Garros--and maybe not until Wimbledon. Still, I love the bright orange. Hasn't looked this good since last year's Roland Garros!
Grade: B-

Anna
http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20030409/capt.1049922371family_circle_cup_chtx101.jpg
Looks a little baggy to me...that's surprising. Still, I like the white/light blue combo. And it's Anna...does she ever look bad?
Grade: A

Dementieva

At least she'll match the clay....
Grade: D

Henin-Hardenne
http://www.pressomatic.com/familycirclecup/upload/9Henin-Hardeene-returns-a-s.jpg
Same old, same old. Still, she looks pretty good.
Grade: B+

Conchita

Ah, the classic looks never goes out of style.
Grade: A-

Bedanova

A little too red for me. She would do well to mix it up. White/Red combo or Red/Black combo.
Grade: C

Majoli

Another more traditional look. Iva looks nice, and she was wise going for a darker blue. Too bad she couldn't do better in the event...
Grade: B+

I am ready to see what Serena and Venus have in store for us next. I like Anna's outfit but I want a new design. Something like she wore at RG last year. But she does look great:)

I think a better question would be, what's wrong with her leg?! The strapped one looks twice as big as the other one . . .

TennisHack, the strapped leg is side on and th other is front on so that's why the strapped one looks bigger.

I'm aware of that, I was just kidding in my post . . .

Trying a little of "my favorite poster" 's humor; guess it doesn't suit me :o

Carry on.

Dementieva looks like an old woman. I don't like it.

Mrs. Guga...do you know own! Mine aren't written in stone! :p

I don't think it's Dementieva so much as it is Yonex! They make terrible designs and make their poor players wear them and it's not flattering at all! Monica is so cute and yet, in Yonex, it makes her look frumpy and matronly! And the colours they choose are horrid. The orange/grey/white combo is just horrible. At least when they stick to powder blue it ain't so bad.

The players are cute yet Yonex manages to make them look bad. I bet even Anna would look sub-par in Yonnex clothes. :eek:

Justine's sponsor has less creative designers...i can't believe she's wearing the same outfit from last year....thumbs down for her outfit.

At least Le Coq Sportif recognises that the outfit looks good on Justine! And she looks really good in red. The yellow washed her out a bit with her blonde hair, but the red really makes her look hot! Like she's on fire. So yes...on the creative side, they weren't too creative. But on the style side, they recognised that sometimes it is better to quit while you're ahead! :D

I agree! I hate the yonex outfits, they are ugly and cheap looking. I wish Monica would either go with adidas or back to fila or nike.

Thats new for Conchita?

I think there comes a time when 'classic' just becomes 'lazy'. I'm sure its not high on Conchita's priority list, but something that looks new can make you feel a whole load better about anything. It looks like she's been rooting round the back of her wardrobe. Plus, people watching her might think that she didn't just step out of a 2nd hand shop if she wore something different, just once or twice.

That's so harsh! I think Conchita looks nice in that outfit. However, I do agree that sometimes, an outfit change may be just the thing a player needs to feel revitalised! But I don't think Conchita is going to be drastically changing her look. Doesn't she own her brand or something?
