Wozniacki is out and Sharapova grunted her way to the semifinals in an understated white and neon green Nike dress. I wanted to write about Sharapova’s long dangling, elaborate earrings but it looks like ever since she partnered with Tiffany & Co. a few years ago, her jewellery choices have become a lot more sensible (to clarify, we’re talking size, not cost). As lovely as those Frank Gehry earrings are in the right photo, we’ve never understood how, and why tennis players wear earrings and a necklace or, like Serena earrings, necklace, bracelet and ring, when they play. Don’t those dangly things get caught on your towel during breaks? Or isn’t it annoying when they’re swinging back-and-forth as you jump around? And same goes for a necklace.
Speaking of Serena, remember when she was under fire a few years ago for sporting $40,000 designer earrings during a first-round match at the U.S. Open?
And here’s Sharapova in her bigger is better days.
