Photos: U.S. Open fashion misses

NEW YORK -- Everyone wants to look their best at the last Grand Slam tournament of the year. Unfortunately, a few players were undone by their kit sponsors, who either didn't do enough or simply did too much with their designs and color choices for the U.S. Open.

Why anyone wants to make Caroline Wozniacki look like an astronaut or Svetlana Kuznetsova look like a roll of Life Savers is beyond me.

Here are some of the fashion misses from the tournament. (Click here for fashion hits.)

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal: Love the color splash of what Nike calls "Atomic Red" in the shoes in his day outfit, but why so monochrome? Nadal doesn't fare much better with the night kit, replacing the white shirt with a matchy-matchy charcoal one. (Matthew Stockman/Getty Images; Clive Brunskill/Getty Images)

Caroline Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki: After a nice streak of some great dresses for the Dane, Stella McCartney's 50 Shades of Blue is a miss. The cutouts on the sides and her space jacket don't help either. Woz deserves better. (Emmanuel Dunand/AFP/Getty Images; Jason Szenes/EPA)

Kei Nishikori

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Svetlana Kuznetsova: I really hope Qiaodan is paying Sveta a lot of money. A lot. Of money. (Don Emmert/AFP/Getty Images)

Victoria Azarenka

Victoria Azarenka: The shoes look great under the lights, but Nike has somehow made a dress that makes one of the fittest players on tour look all wrong. The waist is too high and the hemline is too long. (Darron Cummings/AP)

Grigor Dimitrov

Grigor Dimitrov: I'm a big fan of men in pink, but Dimitrov's horizontal stripes made me think my TV was on the fritz. (Matthew Stockman/Getty Images)

Eugenie Bouchard

Eugenie Bouchard: Bouchard stepped in to wear Maria Sharapova's signature dress after the Russian pulled out of the tournament. There's a part of me that thinks the dress is the reason Sharapova didn't want to step foot on the court in New York. Poor Bouchard looks like she was standing near an oil spill when a bus drove by.

Radek Stepanek

Agnieszka Radwanska: It's not a bad dress at all from Lotto. But Radwanska has been wearing it all summer. It's always disappointing when a clothing sponsor doesn't do something special for its signature player, especially at a Slam. (Matthew Stockman/Getty Images)

Serena Williams
