US Open Fashion Disasters – Part 1

Bethanie Mattek Sands features in US Open fashion disasters

When it comes to fashion, US Open has always been the go-to Grand Slam which produced the most colorful and lively styles to the fashion world. Players, more often than not, have experimented with their looks but fortune has not always been in favor of the brave. There have been some US Open controversies and some US Open Fashion Disasters.

Martina Hingis, 1996

The Swiss Miss, at the tender age of just 15yrs, in this outfit with black and white color scheme, matching dots and waisted skirt could easily be regarded as a Swiss Madam as the attire felt more of a ladies luncheon wear than a young tennis star.Martina Hingis

Mary Pierce, 2006

The French Darling has always been appreciated for her choice of attire but the presence of black, blue and yellow circles in her ensemble back in 2006 was nothing but the artistic reflection of Pierce’s frustration at that point of time.

Caroline Wozniacki, 2014

The highly visible sweat stains, the dull pink and beige colors and the ruffles are only a few of many things that made this dress by Stella McCartney the worst dress ever worn by Wozniacki.

Victoria Azarenka, 2014

Trying to be bold can backfire sometimes, just like in the case of Vika who looked way less polished in her odd sleeveless collared shirt and mismatched shorts. This was nothing but a tuxedo-meets-boy-shorts look gone horribly wrong.

Bethanie Mattek-Sands, 2007

No fashion faux pas countdown would ever be complete without the mention of the American’s leopard-print halter top with matching visor, which proved to be an immediate head-turner. Special credits, however, must be accredited to Sands for owning her style statement on the tennis court even if it was not well-received at all times.

Venus Williams, 2010

As always, the elder of the Williams sister, known to push the boundaries of tennis apparel, has made the list. Venus seemed to turn the US Open 2010 into her own kind of fashion show as she turned up in a new outfit for every match, all designed under her label “Eleven”. With fringing, patterns, cutouts and diamantes – all sported in one tournament, Venus surely earned her spot in the list.

Serena Williams, 2004

Serena, careful not to be outdone by her elder sister, surely deserves the top spot for the biggest US Open fashion faux pas with her midriff mishap back in 2004. Even though her 2002 cat suit may be more memorable, her 2004 blue jeans skirt paired with studded midriff top, hoop earrings and black knee-high boots surely takes away the winner’s trophy.
