Venus Williams had her own version of an Aussie Open surprise today. The 7-time Grand Slammer played near flawless tennis in her 6-3, 6-3 defeat of German Angelique Kerber in the tourney's first round. She hit 7 aces and only 2 doubles, 28 winners against 20 errors, and made 20 of 28 net approaches.
Now I don't need to discuss this EleVen by Venus Williams dress since she's been wearing this style seemingly since she turned pro (what's that, 15 years?). Anyway, I'm liking the spritely lemon yellow color but LOVING the sneaky shocking pink shorts underneath. She's like walking sorbet.
Can V be feeling any more confident about her game, and herself, right now? The women's draw should be very worried.
PS - I'm still wondering where V will be selling these duds since she's still wearing them even though former partner, Steve & Barry's, has been completely liquidated. My vote still goes to Target.
