"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Australian Open 2018 - Melbourne

Pink, pinker, pinkest!
That was my first impression when I watched the first match of Australian Open 2018 in Melbourne.
Personally I don't like these pinks and I'm sure a lot of people also raised their eyebrows by looking on these tennis outfits.

    It could be a paler shade of pink @april. Then it could be argued to be soothing to the eye! :D

    I know we are aiming to a gender neutral clothing, but watching the male athletes wearing pink tennis outfits from top to toes is still weird for me, @mheredge . :)

    Hahaha. I bought some very cheap training shoes today that are grey and pink @april . It's not my favourite colour but I wasn't complaining at 7€.

    Na Mertens moet ook Halep eraan geloven: Wozniacki wint Australian Open en is de nieuwe nummer één

    Caroline Wozniaki is the champion of The Ladies' Singles Australian Open 2018 after a three hour thrilling finale match against Simone Halep. :D <3

    Roger Federer won the Championship title of the Men's Singles in The Australian Open 2018.
    He wore pink shoes, @mheredge and @vinventnguyen . :D

    His tennis shoes are much pinker than mine @april. But the bright pink laces when I look down really do dazzle me!
