Dubai fashion: finalists EleVen and Lacoste + more

best tennis shoes 2024

Dubai was exceptionally successful tournament for Women’s Tennis Blog, because we managed to receive the pass for our photographer Jimmie48 and only the most professional media and big organizations such as Associated Press, Reuters and Getty Images were reporting from the spot. Therefore, I’d like to use his lively pictures once more and make a tennis fashion collage of the tournament, something Women’s Tennis Blog is famous for (remember our Grand Slam fashion overviews and yearly retrospections).

Venus WilliamsAlize Cornet

Let’s start with triumphant Venus Williams. The American tennis player and fashion designer was working a unique EleVen piece with scoop neck and floral print, officially called EleVen Fiore Mixed Doubles Dress. Her opponent in the final, Alize Cornet, the representative of Lacoste, wore a classic navy dress with white lines and the signature Croc applique as details. So many Lacoste dresses look similar to this one, as you can see at the Lacoste retail page at Tennis Warehouse.

Caroline Wozniacki

My fashion favorites are spring designs of Stella McCartney for Adidas. Caroline Wozniacki, taking my top spot, wore a lovely light green combo – a tank with mesh on upper chest and back and dual back construction with standard and racerback, paired with fluffy, pleated skort.

Flavia Pennetta

Flavia Pennetta was similarly styled, just in yellow.

Ana IvanovicSorana Cirstea

Ana Ivanovic was in her now-already-well-known blue and orange Adidas dress, while her best friend and fellow representative of Adidas Adizero Sorana Cirstea was in beautiful separates, a superb tank with rhombus design on back and a contrasting skort.

Jelena Jankovic

Jelena Jankovic was also in her outfit from the Australian Open, the color-block Fila Center Court Dress, only that in Dubai she also showcased the matching Center Court Jacket. The entire collection found inspiration in the brand’s clothes from the 80s.

Agnieszka Radwanska

Just as Lacoste, Lotto is toned down and Agnieszka Radwanska‘s white Spring Shela Dress is a perfect example of the company’s love of sporty, simple and modest.

Serena Williams

Nike‘s Serena Williams was dressed in a magenta skort and a simple long-sleeve shirt, while in the doubles with Venus she was playing in her pink Australian Open dress.

Was Wozniacki also your favorite look? Or maybe you like Venus’ prints? Or the simplicity of Lacoste and Lotto?


  1. 5 stars– Venus Williams, Caro Wozniacki,
    4 stars– Alize Cornet, Flavia Pennetta
    3 stars– Jelena Jankovic, Ana Ivanovic, Serena Williams
    2 stars- Aga Radwanska

    Love Caro’s and Venus’ outfits! The designs on Venus’ dress look great! Adore the color of Caro’s outfit. I really like this shade of mint green. Brava EleVen and Stella!
    I like the sheer sleeves of Alize’s dress. I do like the color too, but it seems as if I have seen this design way too many times from Lacoste.
    I am an absolute fan of Aga, but lately I don’t like the Lotto dresses she has been wearing. I don’t think they complete her look. She has such a cool personality on and off court, but the dresses just seem too dull for her 🙁

  2. Michata, I also like the sleeves on the Lacoste dress, but it is the only new thing on the dress that resembles so many other Lacoste designs. Aga’s Lotto is also not my cup of tea, but I know that the very simplicity and plainness is what a lot of people like.
