TSF didn’t put our money on an out-of-form Serena Williams to be an Australian Open finalist this year (that’s why we’re not bookies, we figure), but we put our money down for a buzz-worthy Nike outfit from the American.
Am I in downtown Vegas? For spring, her sleeveless dressfeatures contrast trim around the v-neck and waistline plus a pleated bloussant skirt — perfect for covering Serena’s badonkadonk. Unfortch, we didn’t know what to make of that laser-light-show fabric of her first-round dress.
Much more refreshing was the version in Light Photo Blue with lime trim (accented with a bandana and wristband) which Serena wore in the latter rounds in taking out Azarenka, Kuznetsova, and Dementieva. The white/blue version of the dress made appearances during her doubles matches with sister Venus.

Accessories: Here are her earrings up close, and a look at the whole get-up (a ring, a bracelet, a pendant, and her hoops). Of course, icing on the Serena cake is the Nike 76 Club bag.
Scoreline: Serena’s fourth stab at a Melbourne title will pit her against Russian Dinara Safina. Williams’ road to the finals included three straight-set matches, a walk-over (due to Azarenka‘s stomach virus — poor kid!), and a three-set quarterfinal against the hard-hitting Kuznetsova.
