Anyone for Tennis? Wimbledon Whites for 2010…

As Wimbledon fever grabs the world’s attention, fashionistas take their inspiration from the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and go all out for white. Whether it’s a dress, skirt, blouse, sunglasses, watch or handbag, it’s got to be white.

Serena Williams, the USA Number 1 seed is one of the hot favourites to win Wimbledon this year. This awesome athlete has tremendous power and an amazing serve. She competes so ferociously for every point that she exerts a loud grunt with every sweep of the racquet. On the subject of fashion, Serena has dubbed the outfit she wears on court "Strawberries and Cream", in honour of Wimbledon. Her Nike dress is white with red trim and she has red shoelaces and red strawberry pompoms on her socks. Even the knickers are bright red lycra cycling shorts.

Sam Stosur was Australia’s hope for Wimbledon 2010. Seeded Number 6 this athletic Aussie lass should have made a real impact but surprisingly fell to Kaia Kanepi from Estonia, a qualifier ranked just 80th in the world. Sam Stosur has also been ‘Grand Slammed’ on her fashion sense, sited as being too plain and dowdy in comparison to the other tennis celebrities. We suggest she cheers herself up with a stunning new handbag as this can instantly lift any outfit effortlessly.

It’s been a good tournament for the Russians with with Maria Kirilenko, Vera Zvonareva and Nadia Petrova all looking strong contenders for the ultimate title of Wimbledon champion. Another really big noise in tennis is glamour girl Maria Sharapova who this year, is sporting a Nike Lawn Rose dress designed to resemble an upturned white rose and "Bridget Jones" style big knickers. She may have the grace and speed of a gazelle but her screeches on court are more ape-like.

And who else do we love? Well, maybe Li Na from China who has been nick-named the "Quiet Assassin" because she doesn’t shriek or groan on court like some of her contemporaries but quietly gets on with the game. We also love British teen sensation Laura Robson who is battling her way through the junior's tournament with sheer determination.
