Tennis pros Venus and Serena Williams have been busy preparing for the U.S. Open, but it’s not just their backhand swings they’re perfecting. The sisters always make a fashionable statement on the New York City courts, too, and this year will be no exception.

“The U.S. Open this year is all about the little black dress, and I always put zippers in my dresses, so there will be a zipper down the back,” Venus tells sis Serena of her planned look in an interview with
Hamptons Magazine
. “Because I don’t ever wear black in the daytime, it will be opposing colors. Last year there were three different styles; this year it will be simple because it is just one, but in different colors.”

And while Venus focuses on her trendsetting ensembles, Serena is nailing a look of her own on the court, painting her nails with the final colors from her OPI “Glam Slam!” polish collection, which was released in phases around the four tennis grand slams. The two hues, both for Glam Slam! U.S., include a shimmering red called “Love is a Racket,” and a glittering bronze, “Pros & Bronze.” May the most stylish sister win!

Tell us: What do you think of the Williams sisters’ on-court style?
