WTA players at pre-Wimbledon 2010 party


Group shot pre-Wimbledon party
Wimbledon is just days away and the annual party celebrating the tournament was held at the Roof Gardens in West London’s Kensington last night. As usual, the WTA players gave their best to look good and glamorous, and oh well, as usual, their success was sporadic.

Let’s start with the bright examples. Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova were spot on. Their dresses are perfect fits and just right for the occasion.

Defending champion Serena Williams looked like a pop star and I’m sure this profile picture will stay remembered for a while. Dinara Safina was having one of her better appearances, although I’m convinced this is not the best she can offer.

Sorana Cirstea and Ana Ivanovic look young and cute, although I’m not sure about Ana’s choice of the dress, but when you get to see Francesca Schiavone you suddenly become less critical of the others. Sorry dear Francesca.

Gisela Dulko and Flavia Pennetta, as well as Vera Zvonareva and Anna Chakvetadze didn’t opt for glamor, but looked nice – casual and friendly.

Anna Keothavong was elegant in the long gown, while Kimiko Date Krumm wore clothes perfect for the day and not a night event.

Jelena Jankovic has kept her recognizable style with mandatory unnecessary details. Although, boyfriend Mladjan Janovic is not a bad accessory.

There’s even a video from the pre-Wimbledon party. Enjoy!

  1. i dont think serena was too much i really liked but it was a bad angle i think.

    i love sorana’s dress though.

  2. never knew Serena had that much junk in her trunk! Venus looks the best, classy stylish, feminine! JJ is indeed a little too much and everyone else is just looking really, outright boring!

    Who said Italians have a sense for fashion? LOL! Sorry, but I mean look at Pennetta and Schiovone!

    Still can’t believe Serena has such a big…you guys know what! How is that possible? lol

    Female tennis players should spend more time learning about fashion and distinguishing classy from too much! Don’t you agree Marija?

  3. Curtis, actually I’ve always thought Sorana and Ana look alike. They even wear the same line of tennis clothes. This picture just confirms that. And yeah, they look young and sweet.

    Emi, Serena looks herself here and her style is totally ok, it suits her very well.

    Bb, the more WTA players try to dress up the worste they look – that’s my general observation. At this players party only Venus and Maria are absolute hits in my opinion, while too many of the others have a loooong way to go.

  4. Like to see Ana and Jelena together, even on picture ๐Ÿ™‚ both of them look classy but pretty. Jelena’s boyfriend is good-looking too!
    I agree with you Marija that Ana and Sorana look alike, like sisters or something like that ๐Ÿ™‚
    Serena…hm, she’s bigger than I thought she might be ๐Ÿ˜€
    Maria, bad shoes, she’s high enough without them !!!

  5. I ageree that Maria and Venus looked best, I actually don’t remember seeing Maria Sharapova dressed up badly…ever! Ana and Sorana- cute, Jelena-too much, but with a boyfriend- can pass.

  6. Marija, now we have two Marijas here. It could bring some confusion but ok, you’ll be with small “m”, “marija”. I’m used to Maria (the third one :P) not being cautious of her height. Sometimes when I wear heels I tell myself “If Ana and Maria can wear them so can I” ๐Ÿ™‚ So I see it as a good thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mg, Maria always looks at least alright. She never has some crazy moments.

  7. Masha is my favorite, i love the dress and above the shoes, i don’t like Ana’s hairstyle!!

  8. Francesca, I also don’t like Ana’s hairstyle. I said Ana looks very lively and young here, but her hairstyle is grandma-like. It reminds me of Amy Winehouse, but Amy wears it perfectly.

  9. I always love seeing these photos, because its always the same people who turn up dressed well and looking good, and at the same time the same people show again and again that they are just incapable of dressing themselves ๐Ÿ˜›

    Maria, Venus and Anne Keothavong look the nicest by far. Serena looks good, but I don’t like her hair. Safina looks really cute, I like her hair. It’s really sad that she won’t be at Wimbledon ๐Ÿ™ Ana and Sorana could be identical twins, they look so alike. For once Ana looks only ok, its really the hairstyle that puts me off the whole look.

    The pics of Flavia and Gisela and Vera and Anna are really cute. Flavia and Gisela are probably my new favourite doubles team. They’re awesome. As usual, JJ stands out ๐Ÿ˜› She looks fine, but I don’t know what’s going on with the material at the bottom of the dress. She and Mladjan make a very cute couple ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Ana Ivanovic. would have worn Maria’s gold mesh dress MUCH BETTER. She could have filled it out alot better. I don’t see anything “bad” about Serena’s profile. Everybody knows she has a very full/round bum by now. She looks good and her shoes are killer.

  11. Brรณna, that excess material at JJ’s dress makes me say “whyyy”. But it’s so JJ.

    Ana could be worried, she now totally has a replacement.

    SweptCleanOfChaos, Serena’s profile made me go “whoa”, maybe I haven’t seen it in a long time.

  12. Marija, you made the perfect idea about Ana’s hairstyle (grandma-like)… XD

    Looking more closely at the first photo, I remembered the dress that Caroline wore at Miami’ party, it was very extravagant and watching what she wears in the photo makes me think that is a lover of bright colors, anyway I think the blue is good for her.

  13. Is it just me or does Ana seem to have gained some weight? Or maybe it’s just because the dress isn’t too flattering.

    Venus looks absolutely amazing.

    Btw Marija, are you VirginMary from tennisforum?

  14. Francesca, I’ve noticed that about Caroline, she wears clothes that I would LOVE to wear if I were 5 or maybe 7 (not out of course, but at home when you for example pretend you’re a singer) :P.

    Lisa, this dress makes Ana look shorter. VirginMary? No. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. XD Marija, you’re right!! When I saw the Miami’s dress I thought… “WOW… She is Barbie!!” ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. I like Maria’s look, a tall version of Agnes Dyen,and she would look lovely with a pixie cut. Dinara looks like she’s an extra on Mad Men.

  17. Great post, really enjoyed this one. It’s interesting to see the tennis gals off the court. Venus looked the best of the lot but what can you do these women specialize in tennis not fashion or knowing what suits their bodies. It was nice to see Dinara looking like the pretty young woman she is.
