Tennis Players Show Off Fashion at US Open
This is What's Trending Today.
Tennis players must wear almost all white at Wimbledon. That includes shorts, shirts, hats, dresses, shoes and socks.
But when they get to New York in the late summer for the U.S Open, they let their personalities come out through their clothing.Serena Williams is one player who always wears something special. In 2004, Williams wore calf-high, shiny black Nike tennis shoes.
But this year, Williams is not playing due to her pregnancy.
It turns out other players are taking over the fashion show. On Monday night, Maria Sharapova played in her first major tournament in over a year. She was suspended for taking a banned drug in early 2016.
She impressed the crowd with a shiny black dress. The dress shined because it was embedded with crystals.
After she won her opening match, she said: "Behind these Swarovski crystals and little black dresses, this girl has a lot of grit and she's not going anywhere."
Among the male players at the tournament, people are talking about the clothing worn this week by Alexander Zverev from Germany. Zverev was the fourth-ranked player in the tournament. Tennis experts thought he could win the title.
Against Darian King of Barbados, Zverev was wearing a tennis outfit similar to the one worn by Swedish star Bjorn Borg in the 1970s.
He had a white headband with thin stripes holding back his long hair. He wore a similarly styled shirt and even completed the throwback look with high white socks. Tennis players have not worn those socks since the early 1980s. Zverev said his look was designed by singer Pharrell Williams.
On Twitter, many people talked about the high socks. Some liked them; others did not.
In his next match, however, Zverev lost to Croatia's Borna Coric.
This time, he was wearing shorter socks.
Maybe that was the difference.
One Twitter user, Jen, definitely thought so.
She wrote: "Zverev clearly should have kept the long socks."
And that's What's Trending Today.

温网规定所有参赛运动员需着白色运动套装 。包括短裤、短裙、帽子、连衣裙、鞋子和短袜 。
然而，在去年纽约举办的美网公开赛上，运动员可以通过着装展现个性 。运动员赛琳娜·威廉姆斯（Serena Williams）的“战袍”个性十足 。2004年，威廉姆斯穿了一款高帮亮片的黑色耐克网球鞋 。
而其他运动员继续接力这场时装秀 。周一晚间，玛利亚·莎拉波娃（Maria Sharapova）时隔一年多参加了第一场大型比赛 。2016年初，她因服用违禁药物被禁赛 。
她那一身闪亮的黑裙给观众留下深刻印象 。裙子上镶嵌着的水晶很是吸睛 。
在本周男子比赛中，观众热议的是德国选手亚历山大·泽维列夫（Alexander Zverev）的服装 。泽维列夫是比赛排名第四位的球员 。网球专家预测，他很有可能夺冠 。
在与巴倍多金恩（Barbados）对打时，泽维列夫的服装像极了20世纪70年代瑞典球星比约·博格（Bjorn Borg）穿的一件球衣 。
他用一条白色带细条纹的发带将长发束到脑后 。他身穿一件同款T恤，脚蹬一双白色中筒袜，造型复古 。20世纪80年代初，网球运动员才流行穿中筒袜 。泽维列夫称，他的造型是歌手菲瑞尔·威廉姆斯（Pharrell Williams）操刀的 。
推特上的很多网友都在议论中筒袜 。有的人很喜欢，当然也有人无感 。
然而，泽维列夫在第二轮比赛中惜败克罗地亚的博尔纳·乔里奇（Borna Coric） 。这一次他穿了一双短袜 。
