Hot stuff: Roland Garros fashion

Here it is another Grand Slam tournament and another great chance to show the world the new lines and creations from each brand. We'll have a look on them.
In the competition between Nike and Adidas, Nike was the clear winner in my opinion. As always they were big expectations on Maria Sharapova's dress, which was quite elegant, remarked by the jewelry earrings she was wearing. And this time they also succeeded fitting Serena Williams in a white dress.

But they also produced great designs that really fitted the players, as the t-shirt and skirt worn by Lucie Safarova, simple and nice. Or the t-shirts worn by Chinese pair Jie Zheng and Zi Yan.

On the other hand Adidas was a bit dissapointing as they didn't present anything new and used the same lines as in the Australian Open. I was possitive to Ivanovic's dress on last year's YEC but I now I'm getting a bit tired of it, although she changed to red. And I'm getting tired of Stella McCartney's designs for Maria Kirilenko too, the colour was dreadful.

The line that Henin used to wear and that is worn by Schnyder and Medina is just okay. In fact the only line I like from Adidas are the tops worn by Wozniacki, Lisicki or Brengle.

Nothing new on Reebok's side neither, Jankovic used the same dress as in Australian Open just changing the colour, and also similar design for Mauresmo. They can do better.

Fila was the most innovative but with bad results in my opinion, I don't like the circles in their designs for Kuznetsova and Szavay. I'm used to watching Kuznetsova wearing horrible Fila designs, but I'm blaming the moment that Szavay, who in my opinion was the best dressed in 2007 with that US Open Series white dress, signed with Fila.

I was really expecting K-Swiss' designs for Bondarenko sisters, but they lost in 1st round so there wasn't a big chance of watching them. The design for Zvonareva was nice but nothing spectacular. Also a nice design for Dementieva by Yonex, same as in Australian Open.

Venus Williams wore her own designs by her brand Eleven and gets a good mark, always colorful. Original designs worn by Betthanie Mattek are always expected, and she didn't dissapoint wearing a nice pink dress on her match against Sharapova.

And last but not least, French brand Lacoste produced in my opinion the best designs of the French Open. At their home event they launched a new line of dresses, t-shirts, tops and skirts based in blue lines that were classy and innovative at the same time. Their designs looked great on every player, such as Cibulkova, Cetkovska, Cornet and Johansson.
