More unusual legwear at Wimbledon

Following on from Monday's display of unusual tennis garments, another female tennis player has been spotted out on the Wimbledon courts sporting some curious legwear.

Unseeded American Bethanie Mattek-Sands pulled on some long white socks for her first round match on Tuesday, but that wasn't the only thing striking about her appearance.

The tattooed world number 55 also dyed her hair a blend of green and blue for the championships, which are notorious for a strict white dress code.

However, unlike the leggings sported by some players on Monday, Mattek-Sands' knee socks didn't help to propel her into the second round, with the 28-year-old crashing out to Germany's Angelique Kerber in straight sets.

Mattek-Sands has garnered a reputation on the WTA Tour for her wacky dress sense, having turned up to a pre-Wimbledon party in 2011 dressed in a fluorescent yellow dress adorned with tennis balls.

Back on court on Wednesday, all eyes will be on Jelena Jankovic, Eva Birnerova and Victoria Azarenka to see if they continue with the leggings trend that they set on Monday.
