Letitia's take: Venus Williams, tennis ace or Victoria's Secret model?

Forget the score from the French Open. Have you seen what Venus was wearing?

Sports writers are tripping over themselves trying to do it justice:

"Despite looking more like she was auditioning for a spot at a 19th century cabaret than playing in the year's second Grand Slam event, Venus won with ease, 6-3, 6-3," writes Yahoo! Sports.

"Looking as if she was about to burst into the can-can at any moment, Venus exhibited her normal flair on the court," opines the Daily Mail in London. "But the lacy, tutu-type attire kept bunching up to reveal her skintight flesh-coloured knickers. It gave onlookers more than an eyeful of her shapely derriere."

Shapely derriere, indeed.

If I had the body of Venus Williams, I would treat every day like the first day of swimsuit season. I would delight in shaking up the sweater-clad tennis and country club set. I wouldn't settle for boring Gatorade endorsements, I'd want to be the face of Victoria's Secret.

The only thing I wouldn't do is the flesh-toned bottom coverage. Next time, Venus, consider matching the peak-a-boo lace of the rest of your outfit, letting your critics know that you don't mind giving them something to talk about. While others stare at your butt, you're out kicking it.
