The men’s and women’s tours may have migrated to grass, but here at LittleYellowBall, we’re still knee-deep in the clay. Today we’re voting on the ladies of the French Open.
As with last week’s face-off for the best-dressed man, I haven’t included the women’s champion among my fashion finalists. Like Rafa Nadal, Simona Halep sported the head-to-toe Nike blues–as did Svitolina and Kvitova and Kasatkina and Keys… It was a regular Smurf brigade at Roland Garros.
Instead, I’m going with these three fashionistas: Maria Sharapova, Andrea Petkovic and Camila Giorgi.
Now before you scroll down to the comment box to fire off an outraged “But Sharapova wore blue, too!”, let me just say that… Well, there’s no defense to that. She’s a Smurf. But she’s a very tall and elegant Smurf, and this dress is a deeper blue with beautiful delicate straps.Embed from Getty Images
Here’s a picture of it from the back because you can’t judge the dress without seeing the crisscross straps:Embed from Getty Images
Next up we have the ever-perky Petkovic in a peachy Adidas dress with a white and navy pleated hem. Bright, cute and fun!Embed from Getty Images
And finally, Giorgi, she of the oversized shots and undersized dresses. Only this time she’s looking practically demure in a pretty floral number made by her mother. It’s feminine while still being kind of sexy, although maybe you have to look like Giorgi to pull off the sexy part.Embed from Getty Images
Runners-up for this poll include Julia Goerges and Caroline Wozniacki (I’m planning a Wozniacki-only face-off soon). Is there anyone else you think should have been nominated?

Okay, let’s get down to business!!!
