The 15 Ugliest Tennis Outfits Of All Time

These outfits are all fashion double faults.

Posted on

13. Aravane Rezai, 2010


Rezai had a breakthrough year in 2010, highlighted by a win over Venus Williams in the final of a tournament in Madrid. It would have been even more impressive if she hadn't spent most of the year wearing this.

11. Bethanie Mattek, 2006


Mattek, now Mattek-Sands, is one of the most inventive dressers in women's tennis. Unfortunately, when her outfits go wrong, they go very wrong.

These socks, for example, look like something your grandma might hand-knit you for your birthday. Most people hide those kinds of things in the back of their closet. Mattek chose to wear them on one of the biggest stages in tennis, the US Open.

10. Andre Agassi, 1992


He might have been the closest thing that tennis had to a rock star at the time, but Agassi still should have thought twice before wearing denim and bright red compression shorts.

Honorable mention in the ugly denim category: Serena Williams in 2004.

9. Bethanie Mattek-Sands, 2011


Mattek-Sands makes her second appearance on this list with this one-shoulder dress that would have been more appropriate...nowhere, really. There's nowhere this dress should be worn.

5. Anne White, 1985


White took Wimbledon's all-white rule very seriously, covering her entire body in this lycra bodysuit. It was so controversial that when her match was suspended due to darkness, officials told her she had to return the next day in something more appropriate. She did, but lost the match anyway.

Honorable mention in the ugly bodysuits category: Serena Williams in hot pink.

4. Dominik Hrbatý, 2005


Maybe Hrbatý was going for some kind of built-in cooling system with this shirt...or maybe someone just took a pair of scissors to the back and he didn't notice before he had to go on court.

2. Bethanie Mattek-Sands, 2010


When your outfit was designed by someone who also works for Lady Gaga, maybe you should get a second opinion before wearing it on court.

She also wore this dress to that year's pre-Wimbledon party. That's a lot of wasted tennis balls.
