Beyond the tennis, the Western & Southern Open is a place to see and be seen. During the day people dress to stay cool and comfortable. The night matches are another story. Here come the Lilly dresses, pink polos, and an assortment of other stylin’ accessories. At least that is usually the case.
Perhaps my camera kept missing the fashionistas. No matter the case, I still found plenty to comment on regarding fashion trends from players and fans alike over the course of the nine day event.
FACIAL HAIR HITS AND MISSES
Hit: Tommy Haas knows how to work the 5 o’clock shadow
Miss: Nothing against the beard but James I really miss your dreads.
See what I mean, so HOT! Those were the days.
ARABIAN NIGHTS DURING THE DAYTIME
Compared to previous years, it wasn’t even hot for this ATP, but I guess I can’t fault anyone for protecting her head from the UV rays.
Andy Roddick made a nice fashion statement with his patriotic sneakers
Kinda looks like the rainbow threw up all over these shoes. Just sayin’
Roger sporting the personalized nike kicks
SEX IN THE CITY
Harnessing her inner Samantha Jones
Unfortunately Serbian beauty Ana Ivanovic had to withdraw from the tourney due to an injury, but her time on the practice court was greatly appreciated by many gawking fans.
American doubles player Mike Bryan showcasing a simple white band on his watch
Serena has a lot of action on her left wrist — sweatband, watch, and some kind of athletic band. Good thing it doesn’t affect her play.
Obviously these moms are excited for back to school and art projects as they show their support for American Mardy Fish
Steve Contardi with Balint Zsidai a.k.a. Rafa’s doppelgänger. So sad the real Rafa could not make it but we did spy his younger, slightly less built look-alike. Zsidai will play tennis at NKU.
I’ve already got my outfits planned for next year, and I’m counting on you to do the same. Let’s be a little more fashion forward and help put Cincy, as a style capital, on the map.
