Elena Baltacha bows out in style.
"Tactics spot on," she tweeted afterwards, "but just needed to execute them better today!!loads learned and banked..keep head down and keep chipping away,onwards and..Upwards!" Love the attitude.
Baltacha has been wearing the black and white version of the Yonex Melbourne tennis dress which got publc play time at AO in red. Unfortunately the black version is not available in the US. It retails for $80 USD in red only.
There is a bow at the back as well. Bows are not really my thing but they figure really big (literally) on many runway looks again this year. Happy Yonex decided to keep this one fairly low profile.
Baltacha's racquet? The EZONE 100, also Yonex.
