Thanks Irina, While playing tennis Martina always wore a sports designed uniform....her first outfits were Italian Tacchini? something like that...then most of her playing career it was with Adidas..along with a lot of other WTA gals, she always did justce to her outfits, her hair was always neat and tidy..and her cute figure helped display them. In contrast to the "Williams' sisters" who usually went for individuality..Serena especially wanted to 'make a statement' with her sometimes outlandish outfits..Maria Kirlenko broke the mold when she started wearing "MacCarthy" designed outfits...very expensive I would think....so I guess the majority of gals are still wearing Adidas etc., Maria Sharapova usually wore something different, now we have Vika Azarenka who just does her 'own thing' if she wears a name tag outfit she covers it up with a baggy t-shirt, and often wears 'Capri pants' under it so she's one of a kind when it comes to fashion, just wears whatever she feels like. Now, she's not going to get any richer by doing that, there's a lot of money in wearing sponsored clothes and Martina is a prime example of 'capitalizing on that' now, she herself wants to create something that she feels more comfortable in so of course this decision was made a couple of years ago, but I applaud her for wanting to put it out there.
