Bethanie Mattek-Sands shocks in long socks
Bethanie Mattek-Sands has wowed Wimbledon this week in a white Lady Gaga tennis ball inspired outfit as she stepped out onto Court 14.

She wore a fringed jacket adorned with 12 half tennis balls, accompanied by her trademark knee-high socks.

Mattek-Sands stuck to the predominantly white dress code needed for Wimbledon, however she assured officials that she would not be wearing the jacket to play in.

The player tweeted afterwards: "Wimby has never seen something like this!"

Her unusual fashion taste has been well documented throughout Wimbledon and other competitions.

In the Women's Tennis Association pre-Wimbledon party, the 26-year-old appeared dressed in another tennis ball inspired outfit, in head-to-toe fluorescent yellow.

British designer Alex Noble was credited with creating the dress and shuttle-cock hat.

Currently Bethanie Matek-Sands is number 31 in the world rankings.
