I’ve a watched a total of one match in Tokyo: the Pavs-Venus one. I do not have the hypocrisy to comment on the tennis. I could look at the stats, read the articles and come up with my own thoughts but not having actually watched the matches, I’d feel like I was lying. Therefore, I’ll comment on what I can:
Vika. In shorts!
“Is that really blog-worthy?”, you might ask. “Yes”, I’d say, “It’s my blog, shut up.”
I love tennis skirts. I even prefer to play in skirts, they look cuter. But when every WTA-er is playing in one… it gets boring. I wonder if it’s a femininity thing. Because the girls are professional athletes, with strong muscles and all, maybe they feel like they get girlier in skirts. If that’s the case: fail, ladies, fail. Most of the time, a fitting pair of short shorts look a lot more feminine and sexier than these loose dresses at the hips they wear.
If you’re a professional tennis player reading this and you’re wondering what to wear next season, let me help you. I imagine the headband is a given. So let’s continue on the shorts — which type suits you best.
Considered one of the sport’s greatest fashion style, Anna K. knew how to wear her shorts.
The belt is what makes the outfit. In both cases, it’s used to complement the bi-colour scheme. Simple, feminine and stylish. Even Elena Dementieva wore a rip-off (+ ridiculously amounts of FAIL) from Yonex.
Another player that was famous for her short-wearing was crazy, crazy Nastya Myskina. When she isn’t on reality shows, making out with girlbands members or riding horses naked… she is wearing shorts! Trufax.
And to finish this (because oh my goodness, it was serious HARD), lovely Daniela Hantuchova and Yanina Wickmayer.
Today’s Lesson: LESS dresses that make you look like you’re pregnant, MORE shorts.
