Tennis Fashion Fix: Maria Sharapova's 2011 French Open Look

By Kselz @TennisFixation
It's that time again - the next Slam is almost here and the focus is now on tennis fashion. Qualifying for the French Open begins today (!!) and Nike has just revealed the looks its stars will be wearing at Roland Garros.
First up - Maria Sharapova. Coming off a decisive win over Samantha Stosur on the clay in last week's Rome Masters finals, Maria will go into the French Open ranked No. 7 in the world. Who knew? So she may make a good run at the French Open.
Regardless of how deep she goes, she'll look great, in my opinion, in this Maria Line 9 dress in pale yellow. First, the action shot put out by Nike:

While it's hard to see the dress in that photo, I love all the clay flying. Here's a better shot of Maria in the complete outfit she's expected to wear, showing off the dress with its multi-tiered skirt, the shoes, and the visor:

And here's another shot of just the dress, so you can get a better look at the double-points on the hem and the ribbon binding around the bodice:

I'm not sure I've got my fashion terms right there but you get the idea. And of course there are cute shoes to match:

While I don't agree with every fashion choice made by Maria, I think she got it right this time. I hope she'll be around long enough for us to see this outfit in action.
