The best and worst dressed of the Open
BEST DRESSED: MEN
4. Thanasi Kokkinakis: The youngster brought some Gen-Y flavour to the court. On anyone else, this technicolour dream outfit would be frowned upon, but since he’s only 17, Kokkinakis looked fresh and fun.
2. Rafael Nadal: With a tan like that, Nadal did well to choose bright, summery colours. The coral and blue pop against his skin tone and perfectly suit the relaxed feel of the tournament. We are willing to overlook the fact that his headband looks like a Chux cloth.
1. Roger Federer: This man can do no wrong. Except in last night’s match against Nadal. No matter, he looked suave despite the sweat in his go-to getup: Polo shirt, pressed shorts with a perfect crease and headband. Plus, he can rock turquoise like no other. Sleek.
Tomas Berdych: You are a tennis player, not a soccer player. H&M, lift your game.
Novak Djokovic: Are you auditioning for the cast of Star Trek?
BEST DRESSED: WOMEN
5. Eugenie Bouchard: The high-waisted silhouette is flattering and the colours and print are not too girly, which suits Bouchard’s personality.
4. Ana Ivanovic: Bright and colourful was the way to go for gorgeous Ivanovic. Only problem was that she tended to blend into the court. Thank goodness for her sunny tangerine visor.
3. Alize Cornet: Wearing Lacoste in the colours of her national flag, Cornet could not have been more French. Her classic navy dress would work just as well as a summer day dress and we love the detail of the sheer sleeves.
2. Caroline Wozniacki: Embracing Australiana with a yellow, white and green dress featuring a pattern resembling wattle, Wozniacki looked sweet and feminine. The two-layered pleating was the perfect finishing touch to a dress that will no doubt fly off the shelves from now on.
1. Maria Sharapova: Or shall we call her the master? It wouldn’t quite be a tennis tournament without Sharapova’s flawless eye for cut, colour and style. Her dress was simple, sure, but it fit her like a glove and the blue made her eyes pop. Effortless and comfortable.
WORST DRESSED: WOMEN
Bethanie Mattek-Sands: The picture speaks for itself.
At only 161 centimetres tall, world number 24 Dominika Cibulkova is the shortest player in the top 25. Just to give you an idea of her tiny frame, Cibulkova is roughly the same height as the Olsen twins and a whole nine centimetres shorter than Tom Cruise.
