Serena Williams is always decorated with wristbands, her Nike fuel band and designer nails.
Maria Sharapova is also very decorated, including these, her personalized tennis shoes.
And another Russian, Svetlana Kuznetsova, donned personalized wristbands at Melbourne Park.
Heather Watson and all players hit the towel at least every changeover, especially in Australia.
Ana Ivanovic tying her shoes through the net, with one of her on-court staples - the visor.
Kirsten Flipkens is one of several WTA stars who often wear stylish shades on the court.
Maria Kirilenko put some Wilson tennis balls on her Yonex racquet as she prepared to serve.
Finally, the changeover - Victoria Azarenka kept hydrated on her way to the Aussie Open title.
High temperatures in Melbourne often mean the players will resort to the ice pack at the bench.
And something else that has become a changeover tradition, and not just for the World No.1.
