I have absolutely no hand eye coordination so I’m terrible at racket sports but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy watching them. Wimbledon at The All England Club is always a favorite each year. As a tradition, the players are required to wear white but some of the outfits this year have gotten a little out of control. I’m not quite sure what Serena Williams is wearing but it doesn’t look nearly as chic as some of these ensembles. I’m sure the ladies are happy they no longer have to wear stockings but I wouldn’t mind if the men brought back those short shorts. I bet more people would watch if they did!

Not sure of the names of these two ladies but I love this photo!
