10 Most Shocking Tennis Outfits Ever

This week sees the start of Wimbledon and as Wimbledon is the smartest, most well dressed tournament there is, I thought it would be fun if we looked back at some of tennis' biggest fashion blunders.

At number 10 we have Anne White from Wimbledon, it may have been 1985 Anne but that doesn't excuse turning up in your pyjamas to work.

Next up we have tennis' very own Lady Gaga, Bethanie Mattek, who is famous for her outrageous dress sense, although this outfit from the 2007 US Open is relatively tame for her.

At number 8 we have the five times Wimbledon champion Serena Williams with her biker inspired look from the Australian Open in 2004. Nice shin pads Serena.

At number 7 sees Bethanie again, this time dressed as a cowgirl at the 2005 US Open. You're playing tennis Beth, not attending a fancy dress party! 

Bethanie is still holding on to the title of worst dressed tennis player at number 6, sporting this design from Alex Nomble at Wimbledon 2011. Tennis balls are what you're supposed to hit not wear Beth.

At number 5 Beth puts in another appearance with frills and lace at the US Open in 2006. I'm sure I had those socks when I was five.

Number 4 sees Bethanie's last appearance, dressing up in this truly shocking gold number at the 2007 US Open. What superhero are you trying to be Beth?

At number 3 it appears Beth is beaten not only on the court but in her lack of dress sense too by the one and only Venus Williams, who beats her sister as she appears to be trying out for a part in Moulin Rouge at the 2010 French Open.

Okay it might be the same year, but they are both so special they deserve their own entries which means at number 2 we see Venus again, but this time in see through lace, adding flesh coloured underwear to effect. We know you have buns of steel Venus but a few more clothes would be appreciated!

Finally at number 1 (drum roll please) we have Venus again. Not only has she claimed more than eleven titles on the court but she wins our worst dressed tennis player title for this little beauty. Did you get dressed in the dark Venus?

Don't think it looks so bad from the front? Check out the back!

Now ladies I know in tennis you don't pull the most flattering poses but you can still look elegant with what you wear as Sharapova has shown us in this pretty little Breakfast at Tiffany's style dress at the US Open in 2006.

Let me know what you think is the worst tennis outfit ever and what your favourites are!

  1. These tennis outfits are really looks very funny and shocking; basically we need suitable and comfortable outfits while playing any kind of games. Therefore for different sports we can get different outfits; such as tennis, basketball, football, baseball and many others; outfits are giving comfort and reduce our distraction percentage.
