Until she showed up on court to play her first round match at the Australian Open we didn’t know for sure which dress Maria Sharapova would be wearing.
First, we were convinced it would be the brown dress called Nike Sharapova Australian Open Flora dress. But no! Daniela Hantuchova sported it at the last week’s tournament in Sydney, so we thought there was no way the Russian fashionista and last year’s Australian Open runner-up would wear something non-exclusive at a Grand Slam.
Finally, the mystery is resolved — Sharapova is wearing that same dress, but the color is different. Good enough.
BTW: In the first round, fifth-seeded Maria Sharapova defeated Croatia’s Jelena Kostanic Tosic 6-4 6-3, and will next play Lindsay Davenport, who has just climbed to the top of the list of the highest earners in women’s sport. (via Tennis Served Fresh)
I am so glad Maria is sporting the white dress – she looks great.
I always thought that it was the same dress, but now I know.
