2002 Indian Wells


Before all the glitz, the glamour and the signature dresses, there was just a scrawny 14-year-old in a generic Nike kit. And a baseball cap. Let's not forget the baseball cap. -- Nguyen (Photo: Clive Brunskill/Getty Images)

2004 Australian Open


Another generic Nike kit that left everyone scratching their heads. The tan lines alone should have put the kibosh on the idea for that top. -- Nguyen (Photo: Cynthia Lum/WireImage/Getty Images)

2005 U.S. Open


It was a nice dress and it wasn't trying to be anything other than that. Given the risks Nike was about to take, I appreciate it even more now. -- Nguyen (Photo: Chuck Solomon/SI)

2006 Australian Open


No empire-waisted dress has ever worked in tennis. It's never flattering on the players. -- Nguyen (Photo: David Callow/SI)

2006 French Open


She'll bring out chiffon and other fluffy material every so often, especially during the clay season. Perhaps it's a nod to ballerina tutus? -- Ong

Or maybe a subtle reminder to herself to be graceful on clay and not a cow on ice? -- Nguyen (Photo: Bob Martin/SI)

2007 Australian Open


She hasn't had many prints or graphics since donning this corset dress at the Australian Open. -- Ong (Photo: David Callow/SI)

2008 Australian Open


We're a sucker for pleats, so this dress, which took her all the way to the title, was one of our favorites. -- Ong (David Callow/SI)

2012 French Open


This dress grew on me over the course of her championship run. In the end, I thought it was perfect that she won the French Open wearing military colors. You know, terre battue and all that. -- Nguyen (Photo: Simon Bruty/SI)
