Venus fails to set off the fireworks
I'll make it anywhere
New York, New York
Lines from a Frank Sinatra song is probably what some of the leading ladies of the tennis world had in mind when they descended upon Flushing Meadows to make a mark at this year's US Open.
And by making a mark, we don't just mean their performances and dramatics on court. From big names like Venus Williams to the not so well-known Yanina Wickmayer, most girls have graced the court in quite zany designs.
Tennis fashion takes a new meaning altogether at the Grand Slams.
Norma Godinho glances at what the stars have worn at the US Open so far.
The elder William sister has to be No 1 on our list, what with her consistent excursions into bizarre fashion statements.
The part-time dress designer -- she has her own clothing line, EleVen -- has worn some seriously bizarre designs at the US Open.
Her latest outfit -- a red sequined dress with a pattern that resembles New York fireworks -- has not pleased many.
'They could be more sophisticated,' New York's Daily News newspaper quoted tennis fashion historian David Rosenberg as saying of Venus's outfits.
Surely Venus could hire a new designer to bring back the right sparks into her dressing.

Maria Sharapova: Colour me blue
The dresses come in two shades -- a lighter one for day matches and a darker one for night games.
The outfits are simple, non-fussy, and match Maria's personality to a T.

Caroline Wozniacki: Danish designs
In a fitting dress worn with a performance bra-top, the likely Great Dane looks the part of a tennis star, no frills attached.
With a smart dressing style and an equally smart attitude on court, she is the complete package.

Ana Ivanovic: Simplicity speaks volumes
Ana stands out, despite the simplicity.

Kim Clijsters: Yummy Mummy!
Kim -- whose adorable baby made bigger waves than her after she won the title last year -- favours blue tank tops and skirts, shifting to classic tennis dresses during night matches.
Yummy Mummy is here to stay!

Shahar Peer needs a stylist
When Peer lost to Venus Williams on Sunday, more than her tennis, we found fault with her clothes.
In a plain aqua blue T-shirt and skirt, she brought down the glamour quotient at Flushing Meadows quite a bit.

Yanina Wickmayer: Plain Jane
No accessories, nothing.
Don't be such a plain Jane, Yanina!

Dominika Cibulkova: Classic white
The top has very minimal design while the skirt has black pipping around the pockets.
A very classy touch. Way to go, girl!
