for the winter, serena opts out of bows and manicures


We’re thankful that Serena Williams‘ wrist has healed enough to get her back onto the tour. She’s playing at this week’s Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart.

In her 7-5, 6-2 win over Ukranian Julia Vakulenko, Nike has put Serena in a softer version of her bow-beleaguered U.S. Open dress in what looks to be the stealth grey/burgundy colorway. The empire-waisted A-line number is pleated down the front and back to maximize movement. FYI, adidas put Maria Kirilenko in similar colors for this season.

And for accessories, she wore a ring (which we’ve seen on Venus) and — apparently — passed on nail polish.

Buy: The Open version of her Fall dress (in the black/pink colorway) is still available. On sale for $95 at Midwest Sports.
