NEW YORK — U.S. Open-bound players weren’t about to wait for today’s opening day festivities in Queens, an unlikely enough spot for a fashion show, to show off their on-court apparel.
Serena Williams, Jennifer Capriati, Kim Clijsters, Mary Pierce and Alexandra Stevenson were among the young guns strutting their new tennis attire and chatting up fans here Friday on behalf of their favorite brands. Dressed in low-riding lace jeans with a bejeweled thong and pink Puma top, the fair-haired Williams packed them in at Puma’s SoHo store and even decked out her dog in a black Puma T-shirt. Serious about her style, she showed off the body-hugging black zip-front catsuit, pink square-neck dress, miniskirt and top she plans to wear during the Open, which gets under way today in Flushing Meadows.
