Centre Court – It’s A Runway Out There

23 June 2009

Maria Sharapova Robert Federer

We'll be honest: we never expected Wimbledon to have a fashion moment. But tennis stars in 2009 know that it's just not enough to have a killer serve - you've got to look good while you brandish a racket. Just look at Robert Federer's Nike outfit - part Brideshead Revisited, part P Diddy video. The jury's still out on this one, but we have to give him an A for effort. But Nike didn't stop there, and Maria Sharapova strode onto the grass wearing a tight braided jacket - part Hornblower, part One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Sexy, probably. Silly? Er, that too. Of course, last year, Maria disappointed FHM readers by sporting a pair of practical tennis shorts, but this year she's gone for full-on Athena poster glory. So what do you think? Has Nike served up a hit or a miss?
