Elena Dementieva is one of the most beautiful women tennis players, nobody can deny that. She is sponsored by Yonex, and wore one of their dresses in the Australian Open and her poor fashion choice left people wondering why she even wore it in the first place.
The teal Yonex dress wasn’t very pretty to begin with, but add some sponsorships and badges on the front and you might as well be wearing a Girl Scout sash. It looks more like an outfit from the TV show Power Rangers.
Now the dress actually wouldn’t be too bad if the right person wore it, but having young Elena Dementieva wear it just looks wrong. She looked like a fifty year old woman in that dress. The color just wasn’t very flattering for her, and she didn’t seem as confident as she normally does when she’s modeling. Dementieva didn’t own the dress.
With all the tennis dresses starting to look more and more fashionable, Dementieva shouldn’t be wearing an old woman’s tennis dress. She is a beautiful young woman, but she should worry a little more about her on-court appearance in such a superficial tennis world.
