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.
