Oh, okay. NOW I see why everyone is getting up early to watch The French Open.

Probably you already heard about this …

… but in case not, below is a picture of the gorgeous Venus Williams, in an THE outfit she designed herself.

Here is another, more action-y shot. (To her left is her opponent(?), Helen Wills Moody, who also has a reputation for scandalizing viewers, due to her frequent habit of wearing skirts "above her knees," not to mention "a sporty visor.")


Her sister Serena showed Williams a photograph from behind. Williams said she did not know that the undershorts would match her skin so well. And she is not about to change now.

“The design has nothing to do with the rear,” Williams said. “It just so happens that I have a very well-developed one.”

No argument there …

… although this time, Venus, as much as I hate to say it, I think baby sister has you beat.

(Yahoo has a tennis blog? Probably started it just for this. Never mind, though. This being Yahoo, I'm sure the link will break in a day or two, regardless.))
