Presumably, Maria has a lot to worry about this week — like her U.S. Open draw, and whether she’s going to thwart Serena’s run at a Grand Slam.
She maybe could have channeled some of that stress into some retail therapy, instead of wearing the embodiment of bleak stress: tangled, dark, shapeless, consuming. Maybe it seemed edgy and Fashion-With-A-Capital-F on the hanger, but in practice the pants are dumpy and the top is funereal. There isn’t really a sense of fun to the proceedings. Will that foretell her U.S. Open run? Time will tell. Insert ominous music cue here.
