    Question is: When is she going to put it on? Maybe she's saving it for the finals.

    She couldn't wear the booty shorts because she doesn't have much of one. :?

    But, the little hat I saw looked okay.

    I think it is decent. It's classier than anything else other women are wearing...I think it'd be classier still if she wore a suit or something like what Fed wore last year or this.

    I noticed that outfit and thought she was trying to compete with Serena for the worst-dressed award. (Not this year. From previous years of Serena attire.)

    She is too flat to be wearing that top. It is really not pretty and makes her look even flatter.

    Cut off the head and you've got the body of a tall, weak man. Nothing amazing there.

    I thought that the outfit wasn't classy at all. It was mostly see-through. Does someting look classy when you put buttons on it? I don't think so. I was disappointed with this from Maria.

    Let's face it, a skirt looks a lot classier than shorts

    Venus doesn't have much of one too. Well good win from her too. I don't think she able to defend her title. This year not her year.

    Horrible... it seems like it's made from patches from other dresses... her previous Wimbledon outifits have been a lot nicer.

    Last year nicer but not bringing any luck and winning to her. At least looked at her smile now full of confidence. IMO she can will her double wimby.

    I see most people that disapprove the look are male. What makes you guys fashion experts all of a sudden? Last time I checked this is a tennis forum. Her outfit is truly unique and classy alright. The true audience are the media, the sport fashion industry and the female tennis fans.

    Well like it or not she is at least making an effort and and a statment about the importance of the match. I think Venus looked far better yesterday in her dress than the shorts she wore last year

    Usually I like her outfits. This one misses the mark for me. Too many things going on at one time!

    it's nice...

    nice clothes on women does not need to be feminine in style....

    like the one she's wearing, its not the most feminine outfit but it is classy....

    Actually, it's men who decide what looks good on women for the most part. That's just reality.

    The issue is that while it's supposed to be classy, it is semi-transparent. You can see her bra through it clear-and-away (not just outlines or impressions of it). It would be much better if she put on a tee-shirt underneath that shirt -- ya know, like everyone who wears a dress-type shirt does.

    It looks very nice in that picture, imo; the problem is that it is transparent when she takes off the jacket, and is revealing. She should wear a t-shirt underneath it.

    I don't mind the top but it would be better if it wasn't sheer. I don't think the shorts fit very well or they just don't sit nicely. Plus they look really wrinkly.

    'I' liked it, too...and "I'M" a guy...???!?! The Grace Kelly reference had some merit as well.........if for no other reason, this different outfit/look....is just that...different !! :)

    Maybe, but let's face it, part of her appeal other than her amazing ability is sex appeal. She looks outstanding in a skirt. That outfit does nothing for me.

    Can somebody explain why this thread is in Pro Match Results? :confused:

    PS: if she wants to be classy why she doesn't stops screaming like a horny hiena?

    Since they BOTH get their clothes from NIKE, How come Maria gets the cool jacket and Serena gets that belted raincoat that looks like it took Omar the tent maker three days to sew all the fabric necessary together?
    Is this actually Serena's taste in clothes?

    Wrong.

    Most women (maybe not you) wear what makes them appealing to the male of the species ... so long as it is also "tennis functional." (Also, there have been some surprising revelations of gender by certain TT-ers lately. You can't judge sex by a Screen Name.)

    Intermingling formal attire with sports attire does not suddenly make something classy.

    True but my point is that Maria doesn't look good in the shorts she's wearing...
