Things are getting zany down under at the Hopman Cup in Perth. Last night during a special USA-France mixed doubles match, Nicolas Mahut showed some funny fashion sense by coming out for the match wearing a dress!

The dress came courtesy of partner Kristina Mladenovic and socks from Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

The exo match was quickly organized when Laura Robson and Francesca Schiavone withdrew from their respective mixed matches.

If you don’t believe me on Mahut’s new “drag” look, here’s the video:

Julie Says:

Did he actually wear that DURING the match, or did he change after the part shown on the video?? YIKES!


dari Says:

He has a lovely figure for a high fashion runway model.


esquilax Says:

Nicolas was the entertainer of the tournament. His game is glorious to watch too.

I hope they can get him back next year.

Good luck in 2011 Nicolas.


Simon Says:

He kept it up for about half of it, was a really fun mixed doubles match with a ball boy and a member of the crowd getting to play a point each as well. Not to mention a few extra tennis balls going awry.


Cool! Says:

I love the way he he looks! Wish more male tennis players would dress like that.


leon Says:

It was hilarious. I only watched parts of it, but there was one point where Isner and Mahut purposefully kept hitting volleys back and forth. Funny as. I want to find a recording of the whole match somewhere.
