Found this old photo of tennis players on Staten Island around the turn of the century.  Love the black and white vertical stripes.…Continue

Maria Sharapova at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.  How did I not see this earlier?  She's wearing an Amanda Wakeley dress and carrying an Alexander McQueen purse.  Stunning.

And the racquet has a sideways S - Slazenger?

That is a cool old adidas track suit.  I don't remember Borg wearing adidas - I remember Fila I think and also his own brand.  Styling!

Are there any bad photos of Bjorn Borg?  I just came across this one where he is looking very good in a very retro way.

I collect vintage tennis fashion photos - especially those from the 50s and 60s.  I just came across this one which I absolutely LOVE!  I'm not sure I could play tennis in these outfits but I think I could smoke a lot of cigarettes and drink a lot of scotch -

You know what Roger Federer is getting a lot of press about these days?  Not just his domination of his 2013 Australian Open opponents.  Which he certainly deserves recognition for.  And not just his continued elegant form and play.  Which he puts out these despite some thinking he's reaching a "certain age" where tennis players usually pack it in.  No.  What people are really focusing on is all of the pink he's sporting at the Aussie Open.  And I for one love it.  It's a nice contrast to the yellow that every other player seems to be wearing and it just looks good.  What do you think?

Lots and Lots of players in yellow at this year's Australian Open, both men and women.  I'm not a big fan of yellow for myself but it looks pretty amazing on those blue courts.

Serena Williams continues to roll through the 2013 Australian Open - making it to Round 3 with no pause or let up in her domination despite rolling her ankle in her first match and whacking herself in the face with her racquet in the second.  What I'm loving, however, is her Nike dress.  As usual, she looks fabulous and it is just the right fit for her body type.  Bonus - it is not boring yellow!  Take a look and comment if you like it too:

Maria Sharapova is in Australia for next week's Australia Open.  Yesterday, she launched her "Sugarpova" candy line there and wore this incredible dress.  Why can't she come up with something this incredible to wear on court?

More tennis fashion for the 2013 Australian Open.  Here's the dress Ana Ivanovic will be wearing.  This is the Adidas Spring "adizero" Dress in Vivid Yellow with Tech Grey accents.  It features mesh trim, a racer back and some sort of striped accent on the skirt which I, personally, am not loving.  The dress includes its own yellow compression shorts and gray sports bra but those two bonus items are not enough to overcome my boredom with this look.  And does this dress remind you of anything?  How about the dress that Maria Sharapova will be wearing?  While I'm not surprised that Adidas would copy the Nike look, or vice versa, I am surprised that this is the look being copied.  I'm hoping for more from other players.
