“Saretta,” as she is affectionately known, will have her work cut out for her as Maria just took back the WTA's No. 1 ranking when she beat Petra Kvitova in yesterday's semi-final match. Very impressive considering that Maria last held this ranking seven years ago. And while I think this may be the year Maria completes her career Grand Slam by winning the French Open, I'm super supportive of Sara as she is just 5'4″ (or 5'5″ depending on what web site you look at). Guess who else is 5'4″ (or 5'3″ depending on what I admit to)? Me! So I always love to see someone under 6 feet play tennis so well.
Anyway, because she's in the French Open finals, let's do Sara the honor of taking a Tennis Fixation look at what she's wearing:
Sara is a Nike-sponsored athlete (just like Maria!) and is wearing the Summer Baseline Tank and Summer Baseline Skort in Magenta with “Violet Pop” trim on the tank. Both the tank and skort have the bandage effect that looked so great on Serena's Soar Statement Rally Dress (see this post for a look: Tennis Fashion Fix: French Open 2012 – Serena Williams). I love the contrast of this magenta color against the red clay and there is also a salmon version of this outfit (the color is called “Fruit Punch”) that is also super cute.
The women's French Open finals are tomorrow so tune in for what is sure to be an exciting match!
