Maria Kirilenko seems to be going the way of Agnes Szavay.
The once rising Russian was quickly ushered out of the Aussie Open first round today by Italy's Sara Errani 6-0 6-4 in a paltry 91 minutes. In fact, Maria K hasn't even seen beyond the second round of any tourney since winning the title in Seoul last September. What gives?
Anyway, the soon-to-be 22-year old (January 25) is, of course, working adidas by Stella McCartney from the designer's Spring 2009 Collection. The baby-doll style is similar to JJ's ANTA dress but at least this one looks made of more substantial fabric (read: doesn't look flimsy, won't fall apart) though I prefer the color of the Serb's choice. The pink fluorescent piping on the straps, however, is a nice touch as is the intricate detailing at the hem.
I'm sure it's very comfortable to wear in the searing Aussie heat but I'm not really feeling this look. Maria K is dressed like she should be sleepwalking her way to a lady baller slumber party and not onto the courts of a major tourney.
Maybe that's why she's out.
