Dress code Tennis Australian Open
Maria Sharapova said it herself in addressing Elle magazine: The fashion stakes are high at this Australian Open, which supplies the 2015 tennis season's first grand stage to make a style statement. Without further ado, here are the Spin's favorite court-couture wonders, or something short of that. (Related blunders—and sartorial aces and faults both from the Aussie's male competitors—will follow soon here.)
Serena Williams has her work cut out for her to win this major yet again, and she's fixing to do it in fine fashion, with breathable, utterly wearable Nike pieces. It's a casual and simple look, but it works for her purposes: Speak quietly style-wise at this Slam and wield a really big stick.
Even Eugenie Bouchard, when controversially asked to "twirl" by a male presenter on court after an Australian Open victory, said Serena's look is the best. (That's funny, as the younger Williams sister is basically sporting the reverse colors of Bouchard's own look.)
While we're on the subject of Canada's Genie, the future's bright for that one. So is her style sense, which finds her in Nike's striking pink set against Melbourne's blue courts.
Venus Williams supplies a refreshing breather from the fluorescent assault on this Aussie Open. Her EleVen by Venus dress's tones are great together and when pressed against her skin tone.

Blue and orange are thoroughly complementary colors, and Asics seems to understand that fully in outfitting Coco Vandeweghe, who upset Samantha Stosur in the latter's home Slam.
That's not to say Stosur wasn't radiant in a similar Asics look. She was. But she also appeared whelmed by the moment and her opponent in another desultory loss for her Down Under.
Somehow Petra Kvitova looks at home in this kit from Nike, whereas the likes of Sabine Lisicki, Sara Errani, Caroline Garcia, and others seem uncomfortable or poorly paired with the dress or its companion two-piece version.
There's not much to say about Yanina Wickmayer's attire, but she earns style points for her Thanasi Kokkinakis impression in falling down upon upending Errani.
Who's your own best dressed among the ladies competing for Aussie Open titles? Who did the Spin miss? Granted, style can be subjective. Stay tuned for our women's fashion faults from Melbourne, coming soon.
