The world probably first time saw a Tennis player with glamour and style than the usual masculinity associated with the game. And what followed after her is history. With stars like Steffi Graf and Martina Hingis, tennis saw the advent of true clamor both on and off the court. At the same time Martina Navratilova carved a special place with all time short pants.
But in the last decade fashion has seen an absolute revelation in sporting events. In tennis though, thanks to the likes of Maria Sharapova and the William sisters. Now special dresses are being designed for each and every tournament or match they play. Dresses on the court along with shoes and studs and alluring ensembles off the field with fancy bags, heels and jewelry. Tennis circuit rises high on glamour quotient.
Sharapova’s A-line frocks and Serena’s trendy pendant are style statements more than mere fashion apparels. Designer houses are coming up with different designs which are not only fashionable but are also comfortable to wear on the nets.
