This was an exciting year for tennis: Novak Djokovic had an amazing run displaying remarkable athleticism, and the end-of-year, 17-match winning streak from Roger Federer had us wondering if he still has something left in the tank. In terms of style, there were a few surprises, but our tried-and-true cast of characters sported the bulk of terrific tennis fashion in 2011.
Our Grand Prize for All-Around Style in the Men’s Category goes to – drumroll please -
Off court and on, Roger is the “picture” of excellent tailoring, seemingly effortless style and good taste. He stands out in subtle shades like gray and navy, but also rocks the red as shown in this on-court ensemble from the 2011 World Tour Finals.
In fact, we have never seen a photo of Roger that we didn’t like. Whether he’s nicely filling out a signature T-shirt and shorts on the practice court or stylishly sporting a Hugo Boss suit, the Fed has arrived as a true fashion icon.
Our Grand Prize for All-Around Style in the Women’s Category goes to…
While always perfectly put together, for some reason, Maria’s style appears to be just a bit more contrived than that of the Fed Express - perhaps it has to do with confidence level. Needless to say, Miss Sharapova continually radiates beauty and charm both on court and off. Her most valuable asset? Her stylist.
Comfortable yet sexy…a WINNING combination!
Our Prize for Best On-Court Style in the Men’s Category goes to…Rafael Nadal!
Nobody, but no BODY, can “bring” the bright color like Rafa Nadal! He’s not too shabby in basic black either, as evidenced by the photo at this year’s Rolex Shanghai Masters.
And speaking of eye-catching outfits, the 2011 Prize for Best On-Court Style in the Women’s Category goes to none other than…Ana Ivanovic! A dark brown mane, pearly white teeth and skin that glows with a little perspiration…Ana was made for styles that feature bold, bright color! Even though her game may lately be a bit lacking, we always look forward to seeing this visually-pleasing and charming young lady!
Our 2011 Honorable Mention “Fashionistas on the Rise”
We mourn the fact that he and Ana Ivanovic are no longer dating…they would have made such pretty babies!!!
Pretty in pink!!!
