Who's wearing what?

It was Heineken Day at the Australian Open, which seems like a good idea, when have drunk Australians ever been a problem?  So much of the photos on the website are of people drinking and Heineken signs- dullsville.  So lets take a look at the fashion so far...

Our Maria, wearing a nice orange and grey two tone dress.  But you know when you're 10 feet tall, 9 and half feet of legs, it's quite easy to wear a dress.  And yet she has worn some awful things (you won't have seen it but for one event a black leather dress with gold buttons down the front looking like dominatrix barbie with 8 gold nipples).  But this I like. The colours seem to clash but in a strangely pleasing manner.
 Alright, another tall, pretty, blonde lady in a nice dress, athough Wozniaki never manages to pull off sporty but pretty mid shot in the same way Sharapova does, huh? Equally, Caroline has worn some hideous outfits, all seem to be designed by Stella McCartney, this is the best of the bunch, much nicer than the black scuba dress from the US Open, although still a little    see through for a prude like me. 

Well talking of see through, heres Venus.
Only got a look at three of the frocks this year, after she pulled a stomach muscle and retired after 7 points of her third round encounter.  The first two are the same; stripes of colour then stripes of transparency, in blue and black.  Once again too short, the millionaire athlete and clothing designer apparently can not find a dress to fit over her ample behind and as soon as she moves in her outfits they become little more than badly fitting stretchy tops.  Although its the yellow dress (below right) which has provoked the most interest/instant and total derision, apart from from Judy Murray who tweeted (yes I said tweeted) that Venus 'knows her fashion'....  Anyway I feel like I should include Venus's explanation of the dress, because it's bonkers:

"The outfit is inspired by Alice in Wonderland. It's kind of about a surprise, because when Alice goes down the rabbit hole, she finds all these things that are so surprising. This outfit is about having a surprise in a tennis dress, and showing some skin and then just having a print. Prints don't happen that often in tennis. So it's called the Wonderland dress."

The men are all looking rather dull, I'm afraid.  Both Roger and Rafa have taken to wearing grey shorts regardless of the colour of their shirts, although I do appreciate Roger coordinating the colout of the shirt piping, armband, and bandana.   IMO the best dressed man was Giles Simon (you really have to say it in a french accent), wearing green shorts and a lovely stripey green top.

And Novak showing off alternating outfits, just like Venus, you know one on, one in the wash.  I vastly prefer the black, but this contravenes all my rules about wearing black in the sun- pure madness.  It may have something to do with his rather lovely arms?
I heart Novak.

And some nice pink on show here with Victoria Azarenka showing off a hot pink halter dress with drop waist and pleated bottom (do I sound like I know what I'm talking about?).  And Jelena wearing a dullish pink dress that looks much better as a shorts and top ensemble IMO.  Really really really, why why why, don't any of the women wear shorts???

Anyway, that's it.  Nothing else has caught my eye.
