It feels like forever since I've sat down to analyse the most important factor in Grand Slam tennis: the fashion. But it is time for me to cast my eyes over what the stars are wearing at what is usually the least fashionable Grand Slam. Perhaps it's the awkward coloured clay, or maybe nobody feels they can look as good as the French so they don't bother trying. Who knows.
Originally Rachel was going to do her own reviews as well, but then life got in the way. Hopefully she will be able to join me for Wimbledon, but until then you're stuck with me. I'm going to start with the girls and then move onto the boys. First up is Serena Williams.
When I first saw Serena's outfit I thought that it was nice, but hadn't I seen it before? Turns out, the grey/orange colour combo is pretty popular with Serena and Nike. She wore similar colour combinations at the French Open 2010 and at Rome this year. So forgive me if I'm not overawed by it this time around. I do, however, like the structure of the dress. The top half manages to be both modest and flattering before giving way to an empire line. I possibly would like to see just a little more length on this dress, but it's merely a matter of inches. Otherwise, a solid if predictable job from Nike and Serena.
