Victoria Azarenka

All eyes are on Victoria Azarenka as she battles it out in the French Open as the women's World No. 1 player and reigning Australian Open champion.

The Belarussian has opted for a bright pink outfit, with dark pink piping at the neckline and light orange colour ruffle at the hem which gives it more feminine touch.

Wearing this Azarenka not only rose in the rankings but also in style ranks.

She had a tough time in her opening round match, going the distance against Alberta Brianti of Italy, before prevailing 6-7(6), 6-4, 6-2.

Maria Sharapova

The little black dress sported by Maria Sharapova looks a little subdued for the glamorous diva.

But this sporty out fit has a feminine character and definitely helps Sharapova make a style statement.

Keeping in mind that she has her own design label, it looks more wearable.

Serena Williams

It is quite surprising that Serena Williams is out of the tournament. There were a lot of expectations from her, and with her exit her mint dress hardly saw the daylight of Paris.

The combination of mint green and red clay was ravishing and gave her a fresh spring look.

Many had billed Serena favourite to win her second French Open title before she went out sporting a faux wrap construction dress to make a high-fashion statement. But Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano cut short her challenge in the first round itself with a 4-6, 7-6(5), 6-3 victory.

Caroline Wozniacki

Trust Caroline Wozniacki to stand out in a crowd. Not to mention the looks of this Danish blonde. But it is her dressing that carries weight with her game.

The former World No. 1 chose a sunny yellow color outfit for the French Open which blended well with the red clay courts. She was on court for only a short while though, beating Eleni Daniilidou of Greece 6-0, 6-1.

Ana Ivanovic

Ana Ivanovic is donning a super green and red A-line dress which accentuates her petite frame. The color blocking design aids this Serbian beauty to make headway in the fashion magazines.

The former champion is on a comeback trail and her attire has definitely grabbed eyeballs. She won her first round match easily, beating Lara Arruabarrena of Spain 6-1, 6-1, but it remains to be see whether she can continue in the same vein and match her game with her style.

Venus Williams

Venus Williams's lace dress made heads turns in Paris last year, and it wasn't surprising that the focus was on her again.

But this time around the American ace returned to her first Grand Slam match, since revealing she suffers from an autoimmune disorder, in a much toned down dress.

The 31-year-old was dressed in white with colored, asymmetrical stripes as she rallied to get the better of Paula Ormaechea of Argentina 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the first round.
