Well, this is one way to make people stop talking about losing that 70-68 fifth set at Wimbledon.
At a mixed-doubles exhibition at the international team competition, the Hopman Cup, Nicolas Mahut walked onto the court wearing a women's tennis dress to match his partner, Kristina Mladenovic. The French team was facing off against an American duo consisting of the always well-dressed Bethannie Mattek-Sands and -- you guessed it -- John Isner, Mahut's foil at that legendary first-round match at the All England Club last June. His fashion choices were received with hearty laughter from everyone.
Mahut is still looking for a wild-card entry into the Australian Open. He hasn't said whether it'd be for the men's side or the women's.
