Lindsay Davenport - Same outfit, different color. Ugh. Though, her hair looks nice and that necklace accentuates the traditional Wimbledon attire.
Grade: B

Grade: D+

Kim looked good, even though her outfit was boring- same thing with Lindsay.

Venus: Gorgeous outfit. Unique. Flair. Stylish. Elegant.

Kim: more boing Fila crap. Did they hand this one down from jen to dokic to kim? I swear fila sucks almost as bad as nike...almost but not quite.

The only true nice fila outfiit was the one jen wore at the french last year. Thats it. The rest is crap.

I'm a Venus admirer, and I've always admired her outfits, but I don't know what's the hype on this dress... It's very ordinary.

The back is cool, but nothing else. It looks like another typical Venus outfit, nothing new seriously. I'll give a B, cause it'll bore me very soon, and I know it.

Kim looks nice but her outfit is damn right ugly and same with davenport...can't wait to see serena's

Grade: D+

kim has an excellent body. just cos she isnt as thin as some of the other girls doesnt mean she should go around wearing baggy clothes. TERRIBLE suggestion. baggy clothes will only weigh down her body.

the outfit is boring thou... and for a top player they should really create something different. but perhaps thats what makes her diff from the other girls, she doesnt care about her oncourt look.

can't blame Kimmie for FILA's boring outfits.
same with Chanda.. most of standard Adidas stuff is pretty basic.

I can't even TALK about the NIKE clothes. they are the biggest sporting wear company in the world!! they can't get someone to design some NEW freakin' tennis clothes???? for cryin' out loud!! I think lindsay looks good in the outfits, but I'm tired of seeing the same ones.

I like Venus' outfit a lot.

i have to say, when you are restricted to ONE color, and that color is white, it really shows quickly the creativity, or lack thereof, in some of the tennis clothes out there.

what do you think they have put Justine in??

I thought Ahl and Gullickson both looked nice, Ahl going for the mid-length tight sleeves look and Gullickson adopting the tight-n-white-right-to-my-chin style.

I have to say though, the British players' "The Sun" badge doesn't do much for them in the fashion stakes.

Jun 24th, 2003, 12:03 AM
What is with Adidas-in 2002 all they had was that crappy brown-mushroom before finally adding some blue mid season and this yearall we see is that revolting grey. I don't mind keeping the pattern the same- I mean if the stripes down the side are trademark- no worries- but at least add some other colours- and please some interestinbg colours. I triple stripe green purple green or 3 straight gren or 3 straight purple would have been really cool for Wi'don

Daniela, Lindsay, Amanda - F

Sorry, although I think Amanda looks good in it, I am SICK of that NIKE dress. They definitely need a new style. It's BORING.

Greenout
Jun 24th, 2003, 07:27 AM
Venus was the best so far because it
doesn't look like anything anybody else is wearing,
and it's flattering on her. The outfit would only
work on tall, leggy girls.

Ld's hair looked good; but that Nike outfit is average.
If LD wasn't a good player, it wouldn't even register.

Ai. It's interesting that her outfits are never baggy or
too big considering that she's one of the shorter
players along with Amanda that represent Nike. It's
always a perfect fit, unlike those Yonex or Fila outfits
that seem to not work for all sized players.

Daniela's dress would be much better if it was a skirt and a top (same top as Lindsay wore of course - it's Nike ;)). It also looks a bit like she decided to cut it off :rolleyes: But for the rest I like it ;)

Amanda's dress is quite average but she looks good in it :)

Please! Its the same dress lindsay and 99% of all nike women are wearing! This dress sucks and it was LAST YEARS DRESS! Get a freaking new outfit. Protest Nike! Demand your rights as an individual player and not a clone! Though daniela should focus on other matters more important than her hand me down dress.

Well today I think Jelena looked great as did Elena B, so they both get B's. Serena looked funny in her ensemble, the white did not go with the orange, maybe she should take tips from her sister, I give her a D. Elena D decided to get rid of her nice pink outfit from BMH, and did not look the part today (D), and failing was Jill Craybas (U)

Looks like Maria Sharapova is wearing the same nike [the one with the translucent ''cross''] as Lindsay.

the only difference between the nike clones and Daniela's outfits is that D's has a asymmetrical bottom while everyone else's is symmetric and also the vertical stripes are fatter.

I hope her being on the verge of signing another clothing deal is the reason for this fashion fiasco!!

Venus is the best dressed this Tourney! A+ Original and elegant. :worship: :worship:

I would prefer Daniela's dress with some little clicky heels and a small evening bag!

Coetzer makes the played out designs of Nike look great! :worship:
Ai's outfit is very nice. :)

Serena may be #1, but Venus is kicking her booty all over the place fashion-wise. A+ for Vee, F----- for Serena for NO originality. I don't care if Puma sends her potato sacks with a little cat on them, she's gotta get rid of that outfit.

Justine looked remarkably nice for once. Jen's dress was okay, but the spaghetti straps always make me nervous :eek: Didn't see much of Daniela, but it was okay.

If I see one more person in that damn Nike mesh outfit I'm gonna go postal on them. Seriously. Get. A. New. Outfit. I don't care that it's white and not blue, or red or black. It's the same freaking outfit. Badly done, Nike, badly done.

Yeah those spaghetti straps have to be a liability on the tennis court:eek: I keep fearing that we'll get some unexpected streaking at wimbledon this year...but is streaking ever really unexpected at wimby?...anyway, I completely agree with your assessment of Nike.

Justine Henin Hardenne - Something about the collarless shirt with the slit on the shirt looks really hot.
Grade: B

http://us.news1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/rids/20030624/i/1056461746.3288506442.jpg
Serena Williams - Can't really tell if it's one piece or a two. If it's a two, it would be stupid because of the end of the shirt. If it's a one, it would be ridiculous to still have that belt. The orange strap looks pretty cool, regardless.
Grade: B-

http://us.news1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/rids/20030624/i/1056462206.2550947955.jpg
Jill Craybas - Wow Jill, don't excite me with all your style and flair.
Grade: D

http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/nm/20030624/mdf304586.jpg
Jennifer Capriati - A very nice selection. Fits her well (though it tends to make her look flat), and an overall well design. I'm neutral on the headband...pink didn't really flow at all.
Grade: A-

http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/afp/20030624/capt.sge.beq68.240603154805.photo01.default-260x392.jpg
Jelena Dokic - Its amazing how when the person who the outfit is designed for wears it, how good it can look! The minimal designs on the sleeves represent the blandness of Wimbledon, and the 2 piece looks good on her.
Grade: A

http://us.news1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/rids/20030624/i/1056464913.4093796423.jpg
Elena Balthaca - Contact companies are inbusiness for a reason. You might wanna try them out...or are your prize moneys not high enough to afford them? The outfit is...yeah...it is.
Grade: D

http://us.news1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/rids/20030624/i/1056477410.3624099913.jpg
Milagros Sequera - Great! Great! Great! Colors go well together, not too much design. Glad someone wears something other than total white.
Grade: A+

http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20030624/capt.1056483218.wimbledon_xwim180.jpg
Conchita Martinez - The collar isn't that good on this. Looks out of place.
Grade: C-

http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20030624/capt.1056490715.wimbledon_xwim197.jpg
Elena Bovina - I have been evaluating the same outfit since the beginning of 2002. Adidas thinks they can do one minor change and present it as a new fall line. YAWN.
Grade: D-

http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20030624/capt.1056470076.britain_wimbledon_xwim150.jpg

What's that got to with it? :confused:

There aren't that many clothing sponsors to choose from and only the Williams sisters and Anna get clothes designed especially for them. That's not the player's choice, that's the choice of the company. A German company is providing Serena with clothes, a Brit company Venus, another German company Anna. I don't think there is a Belgian company that makes tennis clothing.

Besides, I think Justine looks great in Adidas. Hingis didn't get her clothes designed for her specifically, even though she's won several grand slams, same goes for Capriati and many others.

And even though the sisters get their own clothes, they're still ugly. Venus used to wear lovely dresses but I don't like this one at all.

Venus was one of the designers and, maybe, the central influence. She gave her sketches and ideas to Diane V.F.

Diane Von Furstenberg Enters the Sporting World
By Mari Davis

Apr 29, 2003/ FW/ --- Diane Von Furstenberg has entered a new milieu - the world of sports with the launch of 'RBK by DVF' apparel collection.…Slated to debut at the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships with the world's number three-ranked tennis player Venus Williams modeling, RBK by DVF is 'tennis collection collaboratively designed by Reebok and von Furstenberg.' …
…"It was an honor and a joy to dress Venus because she radiates power, elegance, strength, beauty and of course, determination." said von Furstenberg.…

…"Working with Diane von Furstenberg on this exciting collection was a dream come true," said Venus Williams.…I have a passion for design and fashion, so it was truly an honor to work with Diane on the sketches and color choices. It was amazing to see my ideas come to life and I am thrilled with the new collection."
