Colours of the court: Pink

Are you a Happy Slammer who hates the colour pink? If so, you may want to look away now.
Actually don’t because Monday 26th October is Pink Ribbon Day, a day for gathering together and showing support for those affected by cancer.
To coincide with this, we thought embracing the colour pink was only befitting. So, with so many shades and so many styles, here’s how those on court where the colour.

Pink touches on Chris Evert at Wimbledon 1975,
fluorescent ones on Andre Agassi during the 1990 French Open.
Camouflage (continuing its presence) on Svetlana Kuznetsova today at the China Open,
Maria Sharapova, like a ballerina, at the 2006 French Open

The highlighter brights worn by, among many others, Eugenie Bouchard at this year’s Australian Open onward,
and the playfulness on Roger Federer.
Is this the 1980s/early 90s or 2015? David Ferrer I’m not so sure,
and ‘caption this’: Bethanie Mattek-Sands in her slinky looking US Open dress.

The Williams Sisters bringing variation to tennis wear,
an illustration on the back of Venus’ dress and a blazer worn by Serena.
Hair scrunchies!
Monica Seles in the 1990s and Camila Giorgi at the 2014 Italian Open.

And, finally, another classic from Rafa…
