Roland Garros 2013: who wins the battle of WTA tennis fashion?


Roland Garros 2013 is gaining momentum and after the rain-affected Day 3 we already have enough material to assess the quality of the Grand Slam regarding fashion, as we have been doing with all the major tournaments since 2010.

World number one and absolute favorite for the Roland Garros 2013 title Serena Williams is working the solid grey Nike Women’s Summer 1 Wrap Knit Dress with orange shorts underneath. The band below the chest highlights the waist, the slit on the skirt brings extra elegance, while the upper part of the dress is characterized by the V-neck and elastic tank straps.

Ana Ivanovic is wearing the wonderful Adidas Women’s Roland Garros 2013 Dress in navy with orange accents – in my opinion the prettiest dress of the tournament and perfect color combination for red clay.

Defending champion Maria Sharapova‘s style includes a greyish purple dress with narrow bright yellow straps and details providing a pop of color. Here you can see the Russian fashionista talking about the features of the dress.

I loved Venus Williams’ hairstyle during her exceptionally short French Open campaign, while the pink and white EleVen pants and long-sleeve shirt cannot top my list of the best outfits, even though it’s not bad.

Agnieszka and Urszula Radwanska are representing Lotto, and the younger sis was the first to give big exposure to the brand by taking out Venus Williams at the beginning of the tournament in what was the match of the day. The Polish sisters are wearing Women’s Spring Natty Dress in velvet and rose.

Mona Barthel lost to compatriot Angelique Kerber in the first round, but her unique outfit managed to grab attention – the Black Vintage Skirt and the complementary tank from Denise Cronwall’s latest collection. I’m proud to have the same clothes in my possession, courtesy of the designer herself. 🙂

Svetlana Kuznetsova has been wearing Qiaodan since January 2013 and the Chinese brand decided to contrast the red clay with the blue sky print on a T-shirt, skirt and headband. Fits perfectly in the … fashion misses category. In her first win on red clay this seasonCaroline Wozniacki debuted the blue version of the Barricade summer dress and new yellow shoes designed by Stella McCartney for Adidas.

Dominika Cibulkova and Samantha Stosur opened their Roland Garros action on Day 3 with straight-set victories, the Slovak wearing the cute navy Lacoste Spring Pleated Dress, while the Australian’s Asics dress is orange, the color she most frequently wears.

What do you think about the fashion at the cold and rainy Roland Garros 2013? Do you agree with me that Ana Ivanovic’s style is the best? Would you add someone to my fashion overview?


  1. You didn´t wait for Kirilenko and Vika. Whatever, Ana’s is the prettiest one. Caroline’s also ok.
    I don’t like Maria’s and I think that Barthel’s outfit is horrible

  2. I think Li Na always looks great. Venus was wearing pyjamas and the Radwanskas are in their nighties! No one wears a dress like Serena though this isn’t my favourite of hers. Those Barricade shoes that Caroline is wearing are horrible. I like the Lacoste best of these but Cibulkova needs a new bra to show off the neckline properly.

  3. I hate what Kuznetsova is wearing… I also didn’t like Stosur’s dress. I think she looked better with Lacoste. And Venus’s dress is also quite horrible in my opinion.

    I’m positively surprised with Caro’s dress. Before the tournament, when I saw picture of it, I didn’t like it that much. But now I’m starting to think that McCartney is finally finding her style with Wozniacki. I mean she had some pretty outfits over the years but now she’s constantly producing great dresses/outfits.

    Radwanska sisters’ dresses are the first Lotto designs that I actuslly like. Ana’s dress is great and Lacoste one is nice and simple.

  4. My absolute favourite one is Ana’s, the other outfits are boring or just too much. Also, Caro’s dress does look good on her. 🙂

  5. I totally agree that Ana’s dress beats them all. I also like Lacoste, it’s simple and nice. I’m not impressed by Fila and Qiaodan.

  6. My favourite – apart from Ana’s – is the Under Armour Sloane Stephens dress combination yellow/turquoise, but I don’t know how this will be on someone with a less ‘tanned’ skin. But I do think it suits her perfectly!

    I don’t like the outfits of Maria, Venus and Caro, but the absolute worst is the one of Svetlana! What did they think designing that???

    The Lotto dress resembles the aubergine/pink Adidas dress of 2011

  7. Ana Ivanovic has the best dress by far at the French! I especially liked her outfit in the white version, and I loved it as a skort with the cap-sleeved tee. Charming and stylish. I ordered the separates in a size small, which would be my usual size, but it didn’t look good when I tried it on. I was disappointed! Just too much material and not flattering on the body. If you’re going to order Ana’s outfit your best bet is to order one size smaller than what you would usually order. I think I’ll try the dress version next, but still in white for summer tennis. It appears to flatter the body and hit all the right curves.

  8. Serenca’s dress is okay, but again with the white bra. Nike managed an orange skirt, headband and wristbands. How about an orange bra? That would have made the outfit fantastic!.

    And think Nike, a whole new product line!
