As the qualifying rounds completed on Monday, the Upper Austria Ladies Linz hosted a 1920s-inspired players’ party and the WTA players responded to the theme in their own ways.
Gold dominated the setting of the party and a lot of players opted for gold outfits and accessories.
Alize Cornet accessorized her sparkly gold dress with a matching headband and feather boa.
How to enter a party like a boss: Barbora Strycova gave us the lesson in her tassel dress.
Born in 2004, Cori Gauff can’t relate to the 1920s, so the 15-year-old opted for an all-black outfit with a youthful denim jacket. On her first visit to Austria, the American tennis sensation lost in the final round of qualifying, but entered the main draw as a lucky loser, when Maria Sakkari withdrew with a right wrist injury.
Speaking of Maria Sakkari, the Greek nailed the party look with her chunky gold heels. Seeing these shoes, I think it’s a miracle Sakkari’s reason for withdrawal isn’t an ankle injury.
Belinda Bencic and Donna Vekic rocked the red carpet together on Monday night with fun black dresses, pearls and unique headbands.
Donna’s open-back dress featured a tassel hem and the blond Croat perfected the outfit with elegant black gloves.
Kristina Mladenovic was a golden lady, wearing a slim-fitted gold dress, sparkly gold gloves, long necklace, and a feather hair detail.
Katerina Siniakova dressed up her all-black look with a shiny gold suit.
Julia Goerges wasn’t completely in the 1920s zone, but she looked good, as always.
Nina Stojanovic also chose a classic combo: a white ruffle shirt, black skirt and black stilettos.
The Upper Austria Ladies Linz is an International-level tournament that offers $250,000 in prize money.
