Serena WilliamsToday marks the 30th birthday for Ms. Serena Williams, one of the greatest women's tennis players of all time and title holder of 27 Grand Slams. She and her sister Venus always come out to the tennis courts not only with amazing game, but they also bring more stylistic flair than the courts are used to seeing. And let me tell you, wearing a yay-high tennis skirt isn't the easiest thing for most of us women to pull off, let alone rock like Serena does.
In celebration of her birthday, let's take a look at some of Serena Williams' best tennis court styles.
No stranger to fashion statement trials (some good, some bad), Serena Williams wore a black Lycra catsuit at the 2002 U.S. Open, and, at the 2004 U.S. Open, she paired a denim skirt with knee-high boots, which officials wouldn't allow her to wear for her match. However, at her best, Serena tends to go with bold, statement-making color on the tennis court. I've seen her look amazing in fluorescent pea green, which just doesn't seem fair.
Here are five of Serena Williams' stylish tennis looks to remember.

No one wears pink quite as powerfully as Serena Williams at the AEGON International at Eastbourne this year.
Serena rocks a pretty blue at the Australian Open in 2009, and couples it with a pale green head scarf, a single hoop earring, and a heart necklace.
Williams looks lovely decked out in all white while playing at Wimbledon in 2008.
Love this bad-ass and totally patriotic red, white, and blue outfit that Serena rocked during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
