Tennis season is back on full swing commencing at different tourneys and exhibition events across the Asia-Pacific two weeks ago. We’ve seen Tomic beat Djokovic at the Hopman Cup a week ago in Perth, Radwanska’s back to back title runs from Auckland and Sydney, Lleyton Hewitt’s mastery of the field at the Kooyong Classic, and Serena’s Brisbane blowout.
But nothing makes quite a buzz than the first Grand Slam up for grabs this season – G’day mate! It’s the AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2013!
The eyes of the tennis world are set on Melbourne for the next two weeks as all of the top players of the world will slug it out for tennis glory. So why not do it in style? Here’s a preview of some of the outfits the world’s top tennis players will wear at Melbourne Park…
World #1 Novak Djokovic (SRB)
World #2 Roger Federer (SUI)
World #3 Andy Murray (GBR)
Murray will start off his Australian campaign with this..
Ok, I kid. Enough with the goofing. Can anyone give the Brit a shirt, please? Anywhoos, this is what he will wear..
World #4 Rafael Nadal (ESP) – Nadal withdrew due to injury (Boo!). But oh well, he’s supposed to wear these..
World #5 David Ferrer (ESP)
World #6 Tomas Berdych (CZE)
World #7 Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG)

World #13 Ana Ivanovic (SRB)
Ana’s dress is the same as what Kerber will be wearing.
World #18 Julia Goerges (GER)
World #25 Venus Williams (USA)
Venus posted this photo on her official Twitter account and for a moment I thought she was showing off the hanged clothes as her Australian Open outfit only to realize she’s actually wearing the outfit. Boring!
As you can see, the season is predominantly yellowish and vibrant. Let’s see if these clothes can make or break the player on court. Main Draw matches start on Monday with Sharapova taking on Puchkova at Rod Laver Arena, 11 am Melbourne Time.
