US Open 2014: Best Dressed Ladies - Fashion Aces

Can you believe the 2014 Grand Slam season is already over? We had a blast attending the 2014 US Open.

Without further ado, here are GlamSpinTennis' picks for top 5 best dressed ladies:

1. Ana Ivanovic


The Serbian stunner had a disappointingly short stay at the US Open. However, her little-black-dress was oh-so appropriate for NYC. Too bad she didn't get to play at night, under the lights in the City. 

2. Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 


Mirjana had one of the most surprising wins of the tournament. The 32-year-old knocked out the Second seed and had her strongest performance at a major in 16 years. Unbelievable! She also looked great wearing this purple Nike kit. Most of the Nike ladies were wearing blue outfits, suggesting that Lucic-Baroni was slumming it by purchasing her purple kit off the rack. 

 3. Venus Williams



This EleVen design featured a fun pattern which looked lovely against New York's blue courts. 

4. Vania King



Vania sported a fun, youthful design from Minx, a newcomer in the tennis-apparel scene. Unfortunately, the young American had to take-on the World no. 1 and eventual champion, Serena Williams, in the 2nd round.

5. Serena Williams



All hail the Queen! Serena won her 6th US Open crown and 18th overall major at the end of the fortnight in NYC. She did it Cheetah-print. One day, we'll need to do a fashion retrospective of Serena's bold Grand Slam outfits.  Remember the denim outfit at the 2004 US Open? Or, the gladiator look at Wimbledon 2004? 

The Cheetah dress brings to mind Serena's last cat-inspired outfit; the infamous cat suit from the 2002 US Open.  In any case, Serena looked glam as she claimed her 18th major title and $4 million paycheck.

US Open 2018: Welcome Back & New Logo

Well...it's been 2 years hasn't it. That's what heading to grad school will do to a person. Sometimes the axiom, 'the more things change, the more they stay the same,' rings true. But sometimes, as with the case of the US Open's new logo, one steps away, and comes to find that things have gone completely awry.



Is this Arial font? Are these letters lower case? Really, in this political climate, lower case US? Is lower case an affront to becoming great again?

Also, is this logo actually in Arial Italics?

According to the USTA, "the logo created by renowned graphic design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, is a streamlined and modernized version of the tournament’s iconic flaming ball logo, which was first introduced in 1997."

The old logo had a solid 20-year run. This logo probably won't make it this long because it lacks pizzazz and lacks the distinction the previous logo offered. 



And here's a look at an earlier version of the US Ope…

US Open 2018: Rafael Nadal in Practice to Defend Open Chamionship Title

Rafael Nadal took an hour to work on his forehands in the new Louis Armstrong stadium at the US Open, today. 



Accompanied by his champion coach, Carlos Moya, Rafa spent the session working on down-the-line forehands and serves. 



Rafa appeared to be at ease during the practice session but tensed up during as he practiced serving.  Overall, this was one of the more aggressive practice sessions this blogger has seen and one the first times seeing a male tennis pro with male hitting partners and not other pros. I suppose this is one of the benefits of having a Grand Slam winning coach.
