Women's Tennis -- The Tennis or The Fashion? (Part II)




It would seem that Maria Sharapova is not the only female tennis star running up against the fashion police. Venus Williams wore a revealing little yellow number in her most recent match. And, in a distinct difference to Ms. Sharapova, the dress did not affect her performance as she ran out a comfortable winner.

It appears that the [mini] dress was a little more revealing than some people had hoped for, and probably not revealing enough for others, and sparked a bit of debate as to whether she was wearing any underwear, knickers, panties, or whatever the undergarments are called in sport.

The photos do not leave much to the imagination. Venus is clearly wearing underwear. She is most definitely not going commando.

I guess if you win your matches easily then the press needs to drum up interest in other parts of the performance.

Rob,

Fashion police?

I do not know what would happen if she's going commando with that skimpy outfit, would she be allowed to do that in Melbourne Park?

However... I cheer on the two Belgians, Justine Henin and Kim Clijster to bring the woman single title home who've just made a remarkable comeback on the tour....

You have not heard the term 'fashion police'?

It refers to people who consider themselves to be experts on fashion telling others what constitutes good and bad fashion.

I am guessing that tournament organizers and the women's tour administrators might have a bit of a problem with their players going commando.

She wasn't and she didn't, so it does not matter as far as I can tell. But it is a good way to drum up interest and internet searches :D

Justine Henin did OK to win her match. However, Kim Clijsters just got hammered out of the tournament.
