Casual fans may still be experiencing Wimbledon hangover, but die-hard tennis enthusiasts have continued to follow the WTA action and there have been as much as seven WTA tournaments solely in these three weeks after the grass-court Grand Slam. Let's give the word to Marija Zivlak of Women's Tennis Blog and see who has been best-dressed in this period of International-level events in Europe, Asia and South America.
Sorana Cirstea hopped into new adidas separates for her appearance at the BRD Bucharest Open in home Romania and a week later Daniela Hantuchova opted for the same combo for the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Cup.
The adidas Fall Adizero Tank that combines frozen yellow with silver metallic and midnight indigo is part of the brand's US Open Series group of clothes and it also exists in red. The yellow matching skirt, that also exists in red and maroon, perfectly rounded out the look.
In the relatively recent period, Ellesse has seen a major rise in the world of tennis fashion and the choice of Elina Svitolina as the brand ambassador has proved to be highly successful. Ellesse signed the Ukrainian in the spring of 2014, when her ranking was No. 38, and now she's No. 20, with two more WTA singles titles and French Open quarterfinals to her name. This July, Svitolina partnered with Daria Gavrilova and lifted her second successive Istanbul winner's doubles trophy, all the while looking youthful in a skirt with multidirectional thin stripes in light blue. The coordinating tank is a classic, while the blue headband flawlessly suits Svitolina and adds an exquisite touch of retro chic.
Romantic souls will have their heart race faster in the abundance of elegant curves and textures of Denise Cronwall's activewear, designed and made in USA. Endorsed by Mona Barthel, the new items of the Miami-based designer were on display at the Collector Swedish Open, as the German world No. 62 made the finals in the summer-inspired Riviera Collection -- the purple tank with print on top, mint spaghetti straps and mint trim at bustline, paired with the Riviera A-line skort that features the brand's signature merrowed edge. Barthel also showcased the long-sleeve top made of cool microfiber material, again with green details, this time at sleeve seams and neckline binding.
Despite not yet cracking the Top 100, Parisian Alizé Lim is a well-known name in the WTA world, which has secured her a clothing sponsorship deal with Le Coq Sportif. The French company and the young star are bravely paving their own path in tennis fashion and after earning their place among leading brands in my Roland Garros best-dressed list, Lim's unique powder pink and black jumpsuit is also finding its place in my fashion favorites. I admire Lim's courage to stand out and Le Coq Sportif's determination to offer something entirely new.
Kateryna Bondarenko is in the ever-stronger group of successful WTA mothers, while in July her comeback kicked into higher gear with the first-round upset of top seed Venus Williams in Istanbul, followed by a quarterfinal appearance at the tournament, as well as a successful first round at the subsequent Baku Cup, which she unfortunately had to withdraw from a match later due to a right leg injury. The Ukrainian is endorsing Sofibella and this week in the capital of Azerbaijan she sported the Sofibella Perseverance Cami Tank featuring layered print fabric on back, and the printed version of the Sofibella Perseverance 14" Skirt with flounce layers on back.
