So...I have a question of the day - what do you all think of the 'outfit' Venus Williams wore in the French Open?
Some say that she's disgraceful for wearing flesh toned underpants to create the "illusion" of going commando. While the rules are different in France as far as what is appropriate clothing to wear while competing, some say she should be more respectful of the spectators and dress like a "professional" athlete rather than dressing a bit "risque." While most agree she is a celebrity, some feel she should save outfits like these for the red carpet rather than on the court.
Others, however, believe that as long as she is fully clothed (which she is), it shouldn't matter what she's wearing, and they feel that we should focus on her game rather than her clothes. Both Serena and Venus Williams are arguably the best female tennis players ever - and if they want to dress a certain way, whether it be for shock value or simply because it's their taste - we shouldn't care what they have on so long as they keep winning. If they're not breaking any rules, then tennis is all we should focus on.
So what do YOU think? Is Venus right for wearing what she feels comfortable in and is her personal taste, or is she risque for wearing something that gives the illusion of being bare bottomed? Or do you not care at all about what athletes wear while competing? Or the Williams sisters in general?
What say you?
