Trendy Tennis Best 2012 French Open Fashion: Fab Five Royal Court

It’s June, and we all know what that means. The heavy, red clay at Roland Garros promises long, well-crafted points and exciting French Open tennis!

As is the case at any Grand Slam tournament, we have learned to expect the unexpected…like the early ousting of Serena Williams by French woman, Virginie Razzano and the first-round spanking Andy Roddick took from Frenchman Nicholas Mahut.

Along with a few “downs” however, always come a few “ups.” After losing his qualifying match for a spot in the tournament, Belgian David Goffin was allowed in anyway following an emergency withdrawal from another qualifier – and then proceeded to win the next three matches!

And of course, in a sea of tedious and not-so-tasteful tennis styles, there were a few stand-out looks that caught our eye. Take a look at our top picks for a fashion-forward Fab Five Royal Court!
