This space for rent ... on Venus

Venus Williams' first-round loss to Tszvetana Pironkova, an 18-year-old playing in her first major tournament, isn't going to help her get a shoe and apparel deal -- if she even wants one, that is. Williams hasn't had a deal since 2003, although she continues to give Reebok free exposure for some reason. On Monday, she sported six Reebok logos -- on a top, a hat, socks and shoes.

What's in?

The hot fashionable colors to wear in 2006 appear to be mint green and teal. Nike had Serena Williams, Lindsay Davenport, Carlos Moya and Feliciano Lopez all in mint green. Maria Sharapova and Daniela Hantuchova both wore teal, while David Nalbandian, sponsored by Yonex, also wore the tone.
