How best to summarize the action at the Sony Open through the early rounds? Rafael Nadal has been dashing, Maria Sharapova has been hot, and the Americans haven’t had an easy one.

As we enter the business end of the tournament, here’s a look back at some of our favorite photos from the early rounds in Miami.

    Fashion is a funny thing in tennis. You want to look hot, but you don’t want to look, well, hot. With the players chasing the sun all over the globe, the best look is one that makes them appear like they’re out for a fun hit at the local park, as opposed to miserably steaming in the Miami humidity.

    The best way to do that is with light, bright colors, which was the key to our fashion hits. But when the color scheme goes wrong, there’s no saving a good on-court look.

    Here are our Sony Open fashion misses.

    Maria-Sharapova-10

    Maria Sharapova: Exhibit A for why colors matter. Nike went from putting Sharapova in some fresh spring colors, like light blue, to making her look like a dirty marshmallow Peep that got run over by an 18-wheeler. That’s not a good look.

    To steal one of Adidas’ catch phrases, the big labels went “all in” at the Sony Open. Nike and Adidas swapped in new kits for its players as the spring season begins. Nike decided to play the Easter card with its color palette; Adidas simplified and streamlined its entire line for the women while still leaving some room for creativity.

    But for all the quality gear coming from the big dogs, leave it to Venus Williams’ EleVen label to steal the show.

    See our fashion hits below. (Click here for the misses.)

    No. 8 Juan Martin del Potro had surgery Monday on the bothersome left wrist that has plagued him for more than a year.

    Del Potro’s surgery took place at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota with Dr. Richard Berger, who performed a similar surgery on the Argentine’s right wrist in 2010. No timetable for his recovery was released. Del Potro was off the tour for six months for his right-wrist surgery. If that schedule holds this time, he’d likely to miss the rest of the Grand Slam season.

    The Sony Open player party welcomed a spiffed-up Rafael Nadal, a freshly shorn Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and a very sparkly Dominika Cibulkova.

    But here’s our question: Where was everyone? Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Andy Murray and a host of other big-name players opted out of the ritzy shindig.

    Anyway, here are photos from Tuesday’s event.

    INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — The colors on the court have been as bright as the desert sun over the last two weeks as a number of players have debuted their new spring kits at the BNP Paribas Open.

    The most striking thing about the color schemes is just how different they look in person as opposed to on television or in photographs. The neon colors sported by the likes of Roger Federer and Jelena Jankovic pop really nicely on court, while the robin’s egg color scheme Nike has employed is a constant reminder that Easter is right around the corner.

    Here’s the best and worst of what we’ve seen at Indian Wells.

    Serena Williams

    Serena Williams hit the Oscar scene on Sunday night and she looked absolutely stunning.

    Opting for a risqué Michael Costello gown that featured a few strategically placed cutouts, Williams made an appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscar party to rub elbows with Hollywood’s biggest stars.

    Williams has attended several of the magazine’s annual Academy Awards parties. After the jump, check out her looks over the years:
