Match (on) Point

Posted on December 14, 2017

The Priceline Pharmacy Kooyong Classic gets to the base line of the best attire from our sport’s glory days.

Whites might not be mandatory at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club but NEVER are they a bad idea. Let us take a look at some of the best (and of course the best of the worst) sets in the arena.

Modest was the hottest (literally) – imagine running around the court in this get up? It might be safe to assume women weren’t quite the athletes we watch today.

We like short shorts

For the love of all things short, good to see the men get the memo

Serena appreciation society

The queen of tight and bright. This World Champ gives it everything on the court plus that little extra in her outfits… a little trip down memory lane.

You’re not playing tennis if you’re not wearing sweatbands…

No bands, no play. Standing the test of time, whether they work or not, multiple sweatbands have become an on court staple.

A final note…

NO tennis outfit is complete without the grunt, the best and most important accessory for any player. Shout out to Anna Kournikova for her memorable, thought provoking and ear piercing “ughs” on the court, she hits some notes that even Enrique can’t reach!
