Caroline Wozniaki's Sportswear Dress

The Australian Open has finally "opened"! With Rafael Nadal and Caroline Wozniacki holding the title for the World's top ranked tennis player, the matches and games that will be going to happen will be a great and anticipating sight to see. In the meantime, however, Roger Federer, the former World's no. 1 and now No. 2 tennis player, men division, had been with an easy match and easy game, winning against Lukas Lacko, making him the number one competitor of Rafa. While Wozniacki in her gorgeous sportswear, played her first Grand Slam with the No. 1 ranking, has advanced to the second round of the Australian Open with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Gisela Dulko of Argentina.

Speaking of Wozniaki's sportswear, unlike her gray armadillo dress last US open, she is now wearing Stella McCartney-designed ballerina dress. Tennis player in a ballerina dress, eh. Though the sportswear dress is more feminine than her dress last US open, it earned disapproval too, especially from some sports and fashion bloggers throughout the web. Let me quote one of those critics:

But then I looked again and saw the ridiculous waistline, which is jacked up Urkel-style and appears to be inspired by the edge of a birthday cake. (McCartney says she wanted the waistline to "redefine and challenge traditional sports silhouettes.") And then there's the pleating and the blood orange wrist bands. It's not bad, per se, but it's not exactly flattering either.

Let me remind you, dear readers, that tennis game is not just about sports but style nowadays.  Remember the criticism on Serena Williams’s sportswear or her sister’s dress? Well, the siblings didn’t mind anyway.  Though personally speaking, I didn’t mind the dress too, but the play. The play and the game matters most.  Thus, I’m looking forward for Rafa and Federer to play against each other and for Wozniaki on defending her title.  Guess, I’ll be blogging more on tennis updates the next time I post here.  So, till next time folks.
