Just my opinion...the dresses don't compliment Venus.

    Maybe it's just me, and I'm sure some will nail me for this, but I don't think these dresses work very well for Venus. She's always had an awkward body type and doesn't fit this type of outfit well. In fact, I think she looks a little goofy. I'm not sure what she's trying to prove, other than "be herself" like Serena.

    The problem is, both sisters have often chosen overly audacious outfits that have often not complimented their physiques well--Serena especially with her overly large butt and breasts. She wears things that are supposed to be "effeminate" but she has a masculine build. Venus? She just looks silly.

    This is what happens when you get a design degree from some school in a Florida strip mall and you think too much of yourself to start wearing your home-sewn creations in public.

    Venus deserves all the blame.

    I really don't understand why it can't just be about the tennis. Imagine if someone was like this at the local club every week.

    She looks quite silly pulling down the dress after every point.

    could be worse - could you picture Schiavone wearing the dress Venus has on?

    I would give up the one-handed backhand immediately.

    She tries too hard to look hot, and it's not working.

    Yes, she looks like an 80's prostitute. But I live in nyc and that's also the fashion here right now.

    I agree its making tennis look like a hobo sport. Its to sexual. She needs to take notes from Maria on how to dress

    By "awkward body type" I assume you mean "WWF" figure.

    Is she trying to sell her own brand of clothes or something? That's what my girlfriend guessed... she couldn't believe she'd wear something like that if she weren't trying to sell it.

    She wants people to think she's hot. It's not working.

    The only reason I enjoy her victories however, is watching all the white female broadcasters cringe whenever they have to interview her afterwards. :oops:

    That neon pink outfit during her latest match (vs. Kim) must be an homage to Miami Vice (all those undercover hoes of Sonny Crockett & co.

    It must have been difficult for the photographers to get a shot of this dress when it hadn't already crept up around her navel...

    Meh, Schiavone is too manly. She wouldn't put herself in a nightie outfit like Venus...

    Can we at least get something that fits

    It is quite annoying ....... she is constantly pulling and tugging at her outfit............if you are gonna wear it that tight and that short...........THEN WEAR IT. Don't fight it.

    Her backside looks like she has beachballs stuffed in her dress. All of that lame flashy jewelry. Disgusting.

    The Williams sisters are a boil on the butt of womens tennis.

    Perhaps the dress does compliment Venus and we just can't hear it. "Venus, you look so STINKIN' HOT in me!!!" On the other hand, maybe you meant the dress doesn't complement her... :)

    Sorry, I can't help it. Bad spelling and incorrect grammar drive me nuts.

    Yeah, that's always where it ends up for anyone who dares to suggest the Williams sisters aren't flawless in every regard. It's hate. I'm sorry to tell you, but disliking an ugly, ill-fitting dress has nothing to do with my feelings about Venus Williams. I could be her biggest fan - I could be her dad, for that matter - and that dress would still be hideous, and I'd still be sick of watching her tug the hem down after every bleedin' point. It's just a bad dress, and it looks bad on her. That is an empirical fact.

    Don't think any dresses with that many sparkles would look good on anyone. Simply bad taste

    Venus is a very unattractive woman with a hair hat but she does happen to still be one of the best female tennis players in the world....unfortunately.

    Why is it unfortunate that she is a great tennis player? (for the record, I don't think she is unattractive at all....and she seems like a decent person too).

    Why is it unfortunate? You don't like good tennis?

    Didn't see the post-match presser but I'm fairly sure Venus didn't give credit to KC for a good match. It's always "I was off MY game." It's so tiresome at this point. Who cares, Woz didn't win.

    Woz's "dress" was more like a shirt. Weird looking as it appeared as though she was playing in spandex underwear. Pulling on it after virtually every shot. (not that I'm complaining....:)..)

    It's the fact that people constantly talk about Venus and Serena.
