Tennis draws the most number of eyeballs four times a year. As much as the audiences love the sport, there’s no overlooking the obsession with how their favourite players’ dress.
Just after the halfway point in the second major tournament of 2018, we dissect the best wardrobes at the French Open. Without further ado, here’s a pick of the costumes that are setting the Roland Garros on fire this year.

The Russian tennis ace marks her return to Paris with a stunning shade of teal designed by Nike. And with that backless design , she’s making us fall in love with her all over again.
Coming from the house of swoosh, the World No 1’s dress is also inspired from a similar design to Sharapova. Definitely suited for the best women’s player in the world right now.

Lacoste came into its own in the City of Lights with a simple yet eye-catching look for former champion Novak Djokovic. On a comeback trail, the Serb looks determined to leave a mark on clay this year.

Knocked out of both the singles and doubles categories, the American did make her presence known via her combination of tango red, grey and black. A matching visor only added to the look.

Fila went back to basics for the lanky American’s Parisian odyssey. He might have been ousted in the Round of 16 but, Isner’s thick horizontal stripes.

Quirk might even be Bethanie Mattek-Sands’ middle name. She’s earned a reputation for being the most interesting dresser on tour and with her latest pink fringe skirt, she’s only strengthened it further.

The upcoming sensation has made his way into the last eight of the men’s singles category and wears colours befitting a champion. Has his time finally come?
The romance between clay and black outfits dates back to time immemorial. And who better than the former World No 1 to give us a timely reminder of the stunning combination.

Nike has stolen the show with its myriad shades of blue this year. With eyes set on a record-extending 11th French Open title, blue could just be the warmest colour for the Spaniard, the King of Clay, the World No 1, Rafael Nadal.
Last but never the least, Serena made her first appearance at a Slam since giving birth, wearing a black catsuit and sending a powerful message to all moms that if she can do it, so can they. Her withdrawal due to injury robbed us of a mouth-watering clash with old nemesis Maria Sharapova, but we hope to see more of Queen Serena very soon.
