Yeah, she only uses the upper part for warmups.

That wasn't the only interesting part about her outfit. I've never seen any woman wear short shorts in tennis until now:

Is she trying to get cast as the next Catwoman? Posted Image

I think I need a picture from behind to truly judge this outfit objectively.

She looked like Berry's Catwoman. In other words, she looked quite stupid with that ridiculous outfit.

I don't think 'stupid' quite qualifies. I give her kudos for having the guts to wear what she feels, and not giving a shit what other people think.

Dudes(pervs) hogging up all the bandwidth. Can't see the pics. I love Serena; the outfits, the tennis and that back. She's the total package. Fuggeddaboutit, that monument is like a capital P.

She looked vile. Completely inappropriate and not terribly attractive.

From looking at the pictures of her from behind, for some reason I conjured up images of Mr. T holding a tennis racket!
Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him...a super-callused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

Problem is, that's not her outfit choice, she's being paid by Nike a lot of money to wear it.

Just because she has a sponsor doesn't mean she's being forced to wear it. I'm sure she had a lot to do with the design of that outfit. That's like saying Michael Jordan didn't choose to wear Air Jordans. Of course he did.

A million dollars goes a long way toward making a clothing choice, that's all I'm saying.

Serena Williams’ latest wardrobe created a stir with the US Open spectators on Monday, but it was not welcomed by the tournament organisers. Williams was told by the United States Tennis Federation that she could not play in the knee-high black go-go boots she used in the warmup because they were not “customarily acceptable tennis attire.”

i think that's the "hitch" for me. to me, tennis still holds some semblance of tradition (especially wimbledon).



remember when agassi was being all flashy back in the day? i remember when he finally came out into center-court at wimbledon wearing all white -- the crowd gave him a standing ovation. images/smilies/thumbsup.gif



anyway, i don't mind a little flash, but what she's wearing is just fugly.
