Caroline Wozniacki opened her campaign for a first Indian Wells title by defeating American wildcard Sloane Stephens 6-3, 6-2 in the second round. She'll next face María José Martínez Sánchez who she has yet to defeat in three previous attempts.
The world's top lady baller also debuted a new adidas by Stella McCartney dress for the occasion. She showed up working the Tennis Dress 1 or Tennis Ruffle Dress ($120) in blueprint which features CLIMALITE fabrication to help manage perspiration and cool the body, a ruffled satin collar and mesh inserts throughout for breathability. According to the adidas by Stella McCartney site this blueprint color is her choice for Roland Garros (the white version will be for Wimbledon.)
Here's Wozzi discussing her role as the face of the collection in the Tennis Dress 1:
The ruffles seem a bit much for this dress - it's overkill. And, while I like the color generally, I think it's a bit too dark and deep for Woz (similar to her U.S. Open dress.) I prefer to see her in lighter, brighter colors which tend to match her personality better. This color? Not so much.
