eleVen spreads its wings


Venus Williams must be getting excited that her clothing line, EleVen is finally catching on. Russian Nadia Petrova, who is no longer with French company Airness, is through to the fourth round of these Championships wearing EleVen whites. The press asked Venus for comment after her first round match.

Q. You brought out a new clothes line here, but you have Petrova wearing your clothes, right?
VW: Uh-huh.

Q. Is that the first time you’ve had another player wearing your clothes? Talk about how you worked that out with her.
VW: I think she’s just in transition between — was in transition, so she I think wanted — she was doing me a favor. So I’m hoping to see her in the clothes. I saw her in some warmups yesterday, but I haven’t seen her in the match clothes. I’m hoping to see her. She’s a great girl. I have a lot of respect for her on and off the court. She’s a good person.

Scoreline: 21st seed Petrova upset the 16th seed Victoria Azarenka to reach the fourth round of Wimbledon. There she will face either Shuai Peng or the Sharapova-thrashing Alla Kudryavtseva.

    Hmmmm, I kind of like this look on Nadia. I could totally see it on Venus, actually, but I also think Nadia wears it well, and it makes HER look good.

    Awesome! I so called it from the french when she had an eleven warm up jacket on. Good, now I don’t feel like an idiot anymore.

    i was pleasantly surprised….. think it looks much better than what she was wearing before…. actually i think this is the first time i’ve seen nadia in an outfit that flatters her

    nice to see that the tiny puff sleeves do work on someone else besides venus
