Wimbledon fashion flashback No.1

Bethanie Mattek in 2006

“All the players in the locker room are like ‘Oh my God, Beth, what are you wearing today?’ was how Bethanie Mattek described the reaction to this outfit she wore in 2006 when she played Venus Williams. And you know what? The players were right.

Mattek said her outfit was a tribute to football with her £10 football socks, chandelier earrings, a boob-tube worn over a strappy vest top, tiny running shorts and a headband.

Venus, having thrashed her on the court 6-1, 6-0, praised her on the catwalk: “She looked really cute, very 70s-inspired,” Venus said. “I want some [football socks] too. I have some at home but I haven’t worn them on the court.”

Style council: what do you think?

    I agree with players in the locker room. Not appealing.
