Entries in Venus Williams (28)
ESPN Mag's 2014 Body Issue is almost out and last night they released pictures of none other than Venus Williams and Tomas Berdych. The feature includes quotes from both stars... but I think we all are just interested in what these two look like without their kit on. And let me tell you, both of them look pretty damn fine. Check out the nude shots after the cut (NSFW). ESPN's Body Issue comes out July 11.
Serena Williams suffered her worst ever defeat at Grand Slam level in terms of games won and it was the earliest exit for a defending champion since 2005. Her vanquisher was Garbine Muguruza, who is having a great year after winning her first ever WTA title in Hobart and reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open. Serena admitted nothing was working for her on-court, but gave full credit to her opponent. She even joked that her outfit was to blame. “I am never going to wear green in Paris again.” This comment confused me a bit... surely that dress is yellow??!!
Venus Williams was in a knock-down, drag-out fight with the #22 seed Ekaterina Makarova (the woman who took out her sis Serena in the 4th round in 2012). She battled fiercely, but in the end she made one too many errors and was knocked out the Australian Open in 3 sets. Here is the *slightly* silver lining.......the consensus on her dress (via Twitter) was two thumbs WAY up and we will get to see more of it because she is still in the doubles draw with Serena.
On the flip side, Tomas Berdych started his AO campaign with a fairly easy 3 set win, but even with the win, all people could talk about was his H&M kit. I thought he would be wearing some of his signature gear from his collection but instead we got this:
The US Open is generally considered the Grand Slam where players can truly let loose when it comes to fashion. The glittering New York skyline has inspired many patterns and sparkles, while New Yorkers have a reputation for being open-minded and creative. It's probably my favourite fashion slam, and despite style queen Maria Sharapova giving it a miss this year, there's still plenty of exciting outfits to lust and laugh over.
Got to love a girl not afraid to shake what she's got! Venus did exactly that during a break at her exhibition match at the Rogers Cup in Toronto. As for who she's dancing with? That colourful bloke is Spandy Andy, a rather interesting looking Canadian entertainer. Enjoy!

Lleyton Hewitt never fails to bring a good show, and that he did yesterday against Frenchman Gilles Simon. Not only did it go to 5 sets, but Rusty came back from 5-0 in the 5th to bring it to 5-5, but it ended up being all too much for the former #1 and Gilles prevailed 7-5 in the 5th. And the sweetest part? Gilles gave his flowers to his mother, (it was Mothers' day in France), apologizing for the rollercoaster he put her through during this match.
