Venus Williams’ French Open outfit was criticized for being risqué. Now Venus Williams, who turned 30 on June 17 and who advances in the U.S. Open to play Francesca Schiavone in the quarter-finals, does it again in a sparkly pink and black number perfect for a New York night club. Says Venus Williams, “This outfit was supposed to be about New York. It’s like bursts of fireworks.”
Does it matter if Venus Williams’ French Open outfit or her U.S Open outfit are risque?
If you’re a great tennis player, does it matter what you wear? The style of tennis outfits has changed over the years, especially for women. Venus Williams is not only a tennis player, she owns the interior design firm V*Starr and she’s also a fashion designer with her own clothing line, EleVen. If you’re a tennis star/entrepreneur who is interested in more than just tennis, why not indulge your other passions? If an outfit is permitted on a tennis court, no matter how different it is from other outfits, what’s the crime?
