100 Fab Tennis Finds

From Venus Williams' Short Dress to Floating Tennis Courts

— January 19, 2011 — Lifestyle
Venus Williams' short dress is an emerging topic in the world of tennis fashion. People often talk more about the famous player's fashion statements, rather than her talent.

This feature shows off some of the best tennis-inspired outfits, celebrities and tennis balls. There is more to tennis than Venus Williams' short dress!

Implications - Even though women are able to rival their male counterparts on the job and in the sport industries, as Venus Williams has exemplified in both categories, their fashion choices are still in the spotlight much more than men. This is similar in the realm of politics, which has impacts on the media industries, but to be on the cutting-edge may mean to scrutinize the physical appearance of male public figures as well.
