bethanie mattek: “All I knew was I didn’t want to wear white”



Richard Pagliaro of Tennis Week asked Bethanie Mattek about how her boo, Justin Sands, proposed to her; how she thinks marriage’ll change her life and career; and to look ahead to her return to the SEWTA. Oh yes, and he asked her about that Romona Keveza gown she wore to the wedding:

“All I knew was I didn’t want to wear white… I was initially going to wear something vibrant or colorful and have a very relaxed wedding with the guys wearing linen pants and have a beach theme. The owner told me ‘I’ve got this evening gown you might like it.’ So I tried it on — it was the first dress I tried on — and it was black and fit perfectly and I liked it. So the wedding got a little more formal and the guys had to wear nice pants, but it was really relaxed and fantastic.”

And they have united to fight the forces of fashion:

“It’s funny because now Justin will often pick out the clothes I wear on court and sometimes he’ll say ‘You should wear this….’”

Justin — we’ve got our eyes on you!
