Leggings trend hits Wimbledon

Number two seed Victoria Azarenka took to the All England Club courts at Wimbledon on Monday sporting a new look as a fresh trend gripped Wimbledon.

The Belarusian, obviously cautious of the summer chill under cloudy skies in SW19, pulled on a pair of white leggings underneath her white tennis dress in her opening round match against Maria Joao Koehler.

However, Azarenka wasn't the only ladies tennis player to pull on some leggings yesterday, with Serbia's Jelena Jankovic and Czech player Eva Birnerova both sporting the legwear underneath their tennis dresses.

The leggings must have proved to be a lucky garment as all three safely negotiated their first round matches, with the unseeded Birnerova knocking out number 26 seed Varvara Lepchenko on the way.

With better weather forecast for later this week, the likelihood of spotting any other top ranking females sporting the leggings-look remain slim, but with two weeks of tennis remaining there may be more sightings of interesting legwear in the not so distant future.
