French Open - Ladies Style

What a variety the lady's side of the French Open has seen. One reason I think is that there are more brands on the scene as of late, especially because there is a diversity in the countries represented. What's Up? Represent! :) Anyway, this is what I see:

Lotto! Lovin' the lotto outfits. Sporty, but very feminine with the puff sleeve or the layered ruffled skirts. Also digging the color palette. If they would have done it in a brighter color then it would not have had the same effect. Keeps it sweet and not crazy
Now Nike has a definite variety in their line. My favorite is Azarenka's in the purple and black. Fun, sexy, sporty. all of these things but she isn't pulling or tugging and it isn't taking away from her tennis. I dig it. Maria's yellow dress is also a favorite. The other's are classic sporty Nike.
Lacoste is obviously popular this tournament as it is French. I always love Lacoste. Clean and sporty and preppy.
Stella McCartney for Adidas is always lovely and interesting. The color is beautiful too. Unfortunately, Wozniacki couldn't hang in there.
I am also loving the regular Adidas line for the French Open. The combo of bright green, pink, and orange is perfect for summer and mixes and matches so well with all of the pieces.
Anta? Had to look this one up, but found out it is Jelena Jankovic's apparel sponsor is from China. hmph! Never heard of it. I don't love the print, but it's cute. The French Open photographer must have loved her because her pics in the gallery are the most artistic :)
This is the rest of the apparel that I am digging. Kswiss kept in classic. Reebok is simple in black. Fila super sporty with Kuznetsova and Clijsters. Asics is pretty in purple. Tacchini classic v-neck stripe and classic silhouette body.
Not sure when they are going to figure out how to make sports sunglasses cute, but obviously they haven't figured it out yet. Also, I have never seen anyone, men's or women's, wear the black baseball/football player under the eye paint. Not a good look. :( and it didn't help too much because she lost.
Now for the misses. Bethany Mattek-Sands always a miss, but I think she likes it that way. Kind of unfortunate for Under Armor that she does. This Nike outfit in purple and black just didn't look like it fit because of the outer purple layer. Just looked sloppy. The French player in black and pink just seemed a little Jersey Shore. Not slutty, just not a taste factor. And I am all about quirky color combos but this yellow and red just didn't do it for me and the black and orange is sporty and more on the masculine side (hey why not!) but still boring.
