Bethanie Mattek Sands as a sweet blond girl dressed in pink


This cute blond girl is now challenging the rules of tennis fashion with her bold, colorful and excessively accessorized style, always edging the boundaries of good taste and enjoying the shock effect she often produces, which is perfectly evidenced by my recent overview of her crazy on-court fashion throughout 2013. Of course, it’s Bethanie Mattek Sands!

Some time ago I shared several more childhood photos of Bethanie and we could then see that even as a little girl the American enjoyed colorful outfits, while her Indian-inspired look, probably for a Halloween or something, is one of the cutest WTA childhood photos in my collection. The above photo shows the girly side of Bethanie – a pink scrunchie and a matching T-shirt under a floral print dress (I suppose it’s a dress), and not to mention her gentle eyes.

  1. I’ll be the first, though possibly/hopefully not the last, to say the folowing: This new layout of the homepage is, despite whatever improvement it brings, less user-friendly than the previous one. Why? Well, in the first (and possibly last) place, because it does not allow people to see the number of current comments on the posted articles… For, let us be straight with ourselves: more often than not, we gather here for the sake of bickering about the (non-)issues raised by them. Cheers.

  2. Tulp, I’ve been planning to modernize my layout for years and finally I managed to do it. It will definitely take some time to adapt to it, both for you as a reader and for me, but overall this new design is better, especially because it is equally adapted for reading from mobile devices. Thank you very much for your note, I greatly appreciate it! I will work on adding the comments numbering on the homepage. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to share them (you can also use the contact form). The theme has been live for only a day and a half, on the go I will be making improvements, besides experimenting with various options of the theme.

  3. Francesca, I’m glad you like it! Thank you for taking your time to review it and give me your suggestion. I actually believe that darker background would possibly attract the attention away from the page, while like this it nicely blends in. But I can definitely experiment with that as well! I have a new toy to play with this off-season 🙂

  4. Hi Marija! Nice improvement, I really like the new layout 🙂 …if I could suggest something, personally I’d change the background color of the page (the light grey), with something darker, because in my opinion it will give more legibility to the content, focalizing the attention on the center of the page 🙂

    And of course… Really cute Bettany!! 🙂
