Oh Kimmy, look at me, look at me please!
What were you thinking Kim C, on that blustery day at RG?
Kim Clijsters, world No.2 and one of the main contenders to win the French Open title, lost in Round 2 to Arantxa Rus, ranked 114 in the world.

We still love you “Aussie Kim” (Do you remember when you won the Aus Open and said that we can finally call you that??? We’re proud to have you so I didn’t want to remind everyone that it’s been a long long time since you went out with Lleyton…).
Anyway, bygones and all that. Please come back to another tennis tourney soon.
In a new outfit.
In a few short months Kim went from this (all class and finesse):

To this HP and RB (hot pink and royal blue) number below. Maybe not the worst outfit ever, but perhaps better suited to a Roller Disco Derby in the 80s.

Here’s another view of the outfit, apparently inspired by something Kim wore as a child in the 80s. Pay close attention to see the Dazzly Type Flecks.
Whatever Kim is wearing at Wimbledon in a month or so, I hope she brings her “A” game. I’d like to see her for more than 2 Rounds.
Until next time

P.P.S. Couldn’t help putting in a pic of Monfils in this Amethyst outfit. For my liking it clashes with the deep orange clay just a little too much.
