In Praise Of Venus Williams’ Insane Tennis Outfits

Can we talk about how freaking awesome Venus Williams is? While most players go for boring old sports tops and tennis skirts, Venus is known for making, uh, more flamboyant ensemble decisions.

Venus easily beat out top-seed, Dinara Safina, to make it to the final, while Serena just barely snuck into the top two after a challenging match against Russian, Elena Dementieva. In 2002 and 2003, Serena won Wimbledon over Venus, but last year, Venus took home the title.
