Women's Tennis -- The Tennis or The Fashion?
It would seem that Maria Sharapova's choice of tennis attire gained as much, if not more, attention than the quality of her loss.
I wonder what is more important, what women wear when they play tennis or the quality of tennis that they play?
No one seems to be saying that Sharapova lost her first round match because of a wardrobe malfunction or because her outfit was inappropriate for tennis. The majority just seem to think her fashion sense is poor. Maybe it is time that the focus returns to more substantive matters such as whether the quality of her play justifies the huge endorsement contracts that she has. Or, even more simply, to issues like congratulating the solid play of the young woman who beat her, Maria Kirilenko.
But, a Maria Sharapova post lends itself to some pictures.
