They don't really have to dress like that, do they?
Not complaining, not by a long shot hehe. I'm not an avid tennis follower, so just wondering. I remember women's tennis looking a lot tamer in the summer days of Graf, Seles. What changed? Was it a subtle shift from the WTA? Players themselves trying to gain more for themselves in advertising deals by making themselves more marketable? Just liking the attention? Kournikova for one was clearly too shit to win tournaments, so went down the glamour model route.
You can't tell me most of the lads who watch women's tennis or women's beach volleyball have any genuine interest in the sport whatsoever.
