By now, all of our favorite players have taken a turn or two on the Australian Open catwalk. And a few have already been “Auf’ed” – though not for their tennis fashion sense. We’ll take care of the rest. . .
Maria Sharapova wasn’t around for very long, but her dress certainly made an impression. A bad one. Behold, Maria Sharapova, Bridesmaid of the Deep:
Ana Ivanovic in adidas: Is this what we call mustard yellow or what happens when you mix darks and lights? Whatever, Aussie Ana would look gorgeous in a laundry sack:
Jelena Jankovic is all kinds of blue. And that’s a good thing:
Serena the Creamsicle. Not my favorite, but I’ll take one if you’re offering
Dinara Safina is not a fashion plate. But two good things are happening here: the top covers her midriff and the skirt shows off her amazing gams. Positive move, Dina!
Yonex dresses Elena Dementieva like a Constructivist camp counselor. . .and it works!

The sad truth about Stella McCartney’s line for adidas – it looks hideous on everyone but Maria Kirilenko:
And Maria Kirilenko looks great in anything:
Venus Williams is obviously beautiful – her dress isn’t. I really want to like it, but I can’t get past the unflattering slits and icky neon yellow/drab brown fabrics that scream “remnant sale!”
Lucie Safarova is wearing exactly what I wanted to wear in 5th grade. Is this Nike’s kids line?
Victoria Azarenka made it to the juniors’ section. I give her credit for making pink fierce:

Yanina Wickmayer is looking sharp in pastels:
Agnieszka’s ruby red nails tie this ensemble together:
Let’s just get this out of the way. . .
(But they still look good, don’t they?)
Novak Djokovic made news for switching from adidas to Sergio Tacchini this season. To review, this is what ST is supposed to look like:
And this is what Sergio Tacchini looks like on Novak Djokovic:
I really wanted to hate this, but I can’t deny it: flaming Nole is H-O-T!
I also thought I’d despise this mad plaid look by adidas, but then Fernando Verdasco and Juan Monaco put it on:
Work it, Juan!
Fred Perry or adidas, Andy Murray must have a contrasting color in the arm pits. Thrilling stuff:
Sam Querrey ‘s K-Swiss debut was unsuccessful in more ways than one:
Gael Monfils: There’s fashion and then there’s style:
Easy on the eyes: Jarkko Nieminen
James Blake wears his new Thomas Reynolds line for Fila. It’s named after his late father. Nothing too exciting, aesthetically, but maybe the new duds, new coach and new season will inspire him on the court:
I like Granola Bar’s wrapper:
So – what are your favorite tennis fashion hits and misses Down Under?
