Glamorous female tennis stars are simply in love with fashion

Melbourne: The women of the tennis world have shown that they are not only good on court but off it too, as they left behind their joggers for stilettos and sweatbands for diamonds to party.

The women were attending the Medibank International Sydney party at the Westin Hotel, and during a pre-party photo shoot, Russian world No. 2 Vera Zvonareva, 26, admitted, there’s nothing like dressing up.

“It’s always nice to get dressed up,” the Daily Telegraph quoted Zvonareva as saying.

“I’m not really that glamorous and I’m not really into fashion compared to some other girls, but the way the world is now you have to be a bit fashionable and you’ve got to enjoy yourself on the court.

“It’s a nice change,” she stated.

World No. 10 Victoria Azarenka, 21, says she enjoys the odd fashion shoot, but is far more at home in joggers and tennis gear.

“It’s different. It’s nice to dress up and to feel glamorous and have a few things outside of tennis,” she said.

“Like every girl I like clothes and my favourite thing is shoes,” she added.
