Is it not effective in reducing the glare for tennis players?

I thought she was just going heavy on the eye liner.

Probably people thought it was just another one of Bethany's wacky fashion choices.

Maybe because it looks like you have a second set of eyebrows underneath your eyes.

Basically, it looks dumb and a visor or cap would do just as well.

Cause she looks ridicolous, if you want to reduce glare use sunglasses.

Because none of these other janky ass girls on tour could pull it off.

Onward Queen Bethanie. #FashionIcon



P.S - Venus fans need to clean up their attitudes because really, I could go on for months about why SeVen never took off.

Re: Why has eye black not taken off? As used by Mattek Sands for years...

It's sad that most of the responses here are about how it looks. I'd hope that pro players use other criteria for their decisions about this. Maybe it really isn't more effective than a visor. Or maybe even the pros are afraid to step out of what is established. Few of them seem to be fans of innovation.

It's also sad not caring about your looks.
