Emotions ran high as the US Open came to a close this week after a competitive run at NYC’s Arthur Ashe Stadium. The blazing sun had many players wearing athletic shades to keep their A-game up and distracting glare out while protecting their peepers from harmful UV rays.
Besides being practical, these sunnies made a great addition to the tennis players’ meticulous, and often prepped-out, style.
For all of you sports enthusiasts and fashionistas out there, check out how players rocked the court and their outfits as they battled for the coveted title.
