    Is it the norm for her to wear those knee socks that she's wearing today?

    It looks like she picked up an Under Armour sponsorship.

    She is someone I almost wish would not get an apparel sponsor. She gots the funky taste.

    That's actually pretty tame for her standards.

    Mizuno used to make racquets, shoes, appeals, and many other tennis items early in the days...

    You must not be old enough to remember it...

    yeah i was definitely not around for that. the shoes looked a lot like volleyball court shoes. if they actually sell those shoes for tennis i wouldnt mind a pair. mizuno's IMO are the most comfortable shoes out there.

    She's still wearin' em--fugly! Personally I like her very much, she's a great player, seen her save and win some mx'ed matches with her aggressive play--she's toning down her outfits some, but those compression knee highs belong on the 90 y.o's in the old age home.

    Never hear somebody scream so at the court. I mean her knee injury. Have you seen it?

    She actually wears them for a medical reason, to prevent varicose veins.

    Saw it within moments of posting, hope I didn't jinx her. I really like her aggressive playing style and saw her interviewed once and liked her views--she just needs to dump the granny-hose-- they didn't do anything to help her knee--hope she's back soon.

    I don't see her coming back.. it appeared to be a complete break of the bone... you could see it..the lump was almost as big as a tennis ball..

    As a very old ex-football player, I'd rather break a bone than tear ligaments. And I've done both.

    She'll be back, no question. WIll just take a bit of time. You need to remember that she's primarily a dubs player and that's not dependant on youth. You only have to look at Hingis, Cara Black, Navratilova and the rest to see that age isn't a barrier. She also forms a good partnership with Safarova in terms of how they play, which is pretty key.

    Nice post@TennisHound. Possibly four letters too long though...
