I love it. Color is beautiful. I don't understand how the lace will stay put, but I suppose someone has given it some thought.

I need to have that "Who's the best-dressed player?" challenge with Topaz one of these days. I think Maria wins, hands down.

I like it! Sharapova designed more pieces for Nike and she's personally picked up and coming female tennis athletes to wear her pieces over the course of the year. And more dresses designed by her, too!

I'm curious, after seeing it in action last night, did you still like it? My first thought when I saw her playing was, "Oh look, Nike draped Maria in seaweed".
I also thought the dress changed color too much when it got wet. Made for a really odd look.

The problem with this challenge Cindy, is that both of us will think we have won.

I HATE the dress. HIDEOUS. And we wonder why women's tennis isn't taken seriously? And then some players show up to play in a cocktail dress? And an ugly one at that?

I much prefer the look that Kirilenko was sporting...simple, classy, streamlined with a modern, athletic cut.

I loved the white/yellow and all white dresses Sharapova had in the past. But last year and this year she has just gotten too screwy. (remember the black and silver martian dress?)

And, honestly, she needs to spend a bit more time worrying about her game and less on her outfits.

Xenakis
01-18-2010, 03:14 PM
Yes, Kirilenko looked much better. I don't know who women who wear these silly outfits are trying to appeal to.

Pretty sure most men prefer a simple skirt and t-shirt, well, I do anyway. Crazy Serena outfits or dressy things are really not required, and they look even worse when covered with sweat.

Topaz

^^^Yeah, as others mentioned, Sharapova's dress looked dreadful where she was sweating.

And it is summer in Australia...you'd think someone would consider that!!!

Sweating in sportswear is fine, par for the course. Sweating in something that looks like a dress, not fine, looks wrong/unattractive. A mystery why the trend for dressy outfits continues. I'm going to write to my MP :-)

Not all the Serena outfits are that bad. I have the red dress she wore at the US Open a couple of years ago. It is a GREAT dress. Very comfortable, looks like it belongs on the tennis court. Overall, my preference is just a simple shirt and skort.

The only women I see wear the over the top outfits are the old, country club ladies who only play doubles and don't really sweat that much. They do look nice.

Sorry, I'm not insulting your wardrobe and I haven't seen all of her outfits but that pink dress she wore at the last US Open was just absurd IMO (by the end of the match the only bit of the dress that didn't seem to have sweat on it was a small patch in front of her cleavage.)

Another classic, Columbo inspired?

I find I quite like Ivanovic's dress...it looks much nicer on than it did in just the plain picture. And the balance is right...it is a dress, but much more suited to, you know, playing *tennis* than Sharapova's elf nymph costume.

I think Serena has had it just right lately, too. She is far removed from some of the scary stuff she wore earlier in her career.

LOL. Not to worry. My wardrobe and I are not even remotely insulted.
I agree that Serena has more fashion don'ts than do's. The black catsuit and the denim gladiator come to mind, but every once in awhile, she has something that isn't so bad.

It would be nice if someone at Nike would remind Serena and Maria that while they are both very accomplished tennis players, they really should leave the clothes designing to the experts.

Maria's dress is more suitable for figure skating then tennis, I was disappointed considering she has worn some very nice clothing in the past. I see it's been panned in the non-tennis fashion circles too.

I liked Serena's orange dress. I was pleasantly suprised to see her wearing something so tasteful and modest. I hope this becomes a permanent trend with her.

I also like Venus' yellow dress, it looks fantastic on her.

Yeah, that's a shade of orange to me. It was my first thought when she walked on court for her match, and also my first thought when she came on court for the Hit for Haiti. She was wearing an orange top for that too. It has some yellow in it, but that's definitely orange. :)

Anyone notice how green, yellow, and, ok...orange...are always popular for the AO lines?

I've loved all of Venus's dresses for the past two years or so...very elegant and different, but still appropriate for playing tennis!

Poor Masha needs to go back to the drawing board in more than one area it seems.

Oh and skorts are ok too (only just worked out what they are, thought people were misspelling skirt at first.)

Or even shorts are fine too actually.

In one of an infinite number of alternate realities I imagine I'm the Karl Lagerfeld of womens' tennis fashion. Uncompromising and arrogant dressy outfits are not allowed.

'Yes darling but what happens when you sweat in a dress? attractive? no. You are an athlete, look like one. Form must follow function, that's sexy.'

^^^Ahhh Xenakis, you are a mystery wrapped up in a riddle!

One of the reasons I like Wozzi's dress is that it is a very simple, clean cut. I only own a few tennis dresses myself, but they are all cut similarly.

LOL at you correcting people talking about skorts!!!

I never actually corrected anyone for using the word skort. Thankfully (I think I would have had the nouse to look it up first, hopefully.)

Re Wozzi's dress, was just watching her play now. One of the best players on the womens' tour and that dress is acceptable. Not too fussy as you suggest. But still, I'd rather the ladies stuck to more sporty attire, just my opinion of course.

I think Sharapova's dress is hideous. It doesn't look practical for athletic attire. I prefer clothes that are more functional. I really like all of Kim Clijsters recent Fila outfits. They look athletic and "un-frilly". Most of the Adidas clothes look great too. However, they never seem to fit me personally.

I like the Nike dresses that Serena has worn in the last few grand slams and I like her bright yellow AO dress. I think the dress styles are flattering to her body type. Her body type is hard to dress.

Sometimes I think it’d be nice to be a guy and not have to worry about how things fit. They can pretty much wear the same size in every brand. You’d never hear a guy say “Nike shorts fit my butt, but gap in the waist.” Or “Adidas clothes always make me look fat.”:)

Kim's definitely "filled out" since the kid. Even being tremendously fit she can't hide certain parts of herself. :) Sorry.

I'm fine with the super tight athletic attire a la Kirilenko. No reason for Marsha to try to get all fancy...didn't mind the black cocktail-y thing from the US open, but this thing we have here is just butt ugly.

Well as a guy I can tell you that I hate Prince shorts. They me like the old days of tennis shorts (Jimmy conners style shorties). I also don't like the fit of Slazenger shirts they are not but big enough in the shoulders or armholes for me. See we have issues with tennis crap too, just not as much as you ladies.
