Competition is under way on the clay courts of Roland Garros, the location of the French Open, and athletes from around the world have flocked to Paris to compete for a title in the second Grand Slam tournament of the year. Whether or not you are a fan of the sport, there are some hot physiques to follow throughout the storied tournament. Click through to see the tennis stars who will be heating up the courts for the French Open.
Last Summer we enjoyed a full month of hot soccer players during the World Cup. And while we'll have to wait another three years for such epic amounts of shirtless moments, tennis supplies us with a batch of good-looking international athletes each year. Going down in Paris right now, the French Open will culminate with the finals on Sunday. In addition to dramatic tennis, let's enjoy a look at the eye candy on the court!
Venus Williams raised a few eyebrows at the French Open this weekend, but it wasn't necessarily for her tennis skills (I mean, she kills it on the court!). The tennis star showed up wearing a red and black lace corset-like outfit for her match against Patty Schnyder — it was a little boudoir looking by way of the Moulin Rouge. To make things even more risqué were the nude compression shorts Venus wore underneath her black lace tutu. When Venus's skirt flew up, the shorts gave the illusion that she was naked underneath. Yowza!
This is not the first time Venus (or her sister) has pushed the boundaries when it comes to on-court outfits. Venus donned a very similar number at the Sony Ericsson Open last month. Both outfits are from Venus's clothing line, EleVen. Do you think Venus should be able to express herself as she chooses on the court? Tell me . . .
I'm loving the coordinated orange of the crushed brick clay court at the French Open. And unlike some of the other tennis players I've seen, Serena's outfit is a perfect complement to the color of the crushed brick.
This photo reminded me of how appealingly forward this shade of orange can be. Imagine it accenting an otherwise muted room, or adding a pop of strong earth tones to a black living room. See some of my favorite clay-colored home finds below.
