Bethanie Mattek-Sands promised Wimbledon had never seen anything like it, and she wasn't kidding.

The 26-year-old American, famous for her unusual fashion taste, arrived on court on Wednesday for her first-round match wearing a white fringed jacket with 12 tennis balls cut in half stitched down each silver-studded sleeve.

She paused briefly to show off the Lady Gaga-inspired outfit for a throng of about 10 photographers that had gathered at Court 14, before spotting a look of concern on the face of a nearby tournament official.

Mattek-Sands said: "I'm not hitting any balls in it. Don't worry ... It's too heavy to wear."
