Lefty Petra Kvitova won her first Major title defeating Maria Sharapova quietly at Wimbledon in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4. (See ladies you don't need to shriek to get good results.) Petra is a shy and reserved young woman, but when she claimed match point with an ace I still expected all of the tension simmering under the surface to come out in a huge burst of emotion, yet her fall to the grass was almost unnaturally calm.
Entries in WTA (75)
Watch all the ladies including Ana Ivanovic, Caroline Wozniacki, and Andrea Petkovic get glammed up and then walk the red carpet at the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party. I love being a girl! :)
There were so many beautiful women dressed to the nines that walked the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party Red Carpet, that instead of showing them all to you, I've narrowed it down to the ensembles that I liked the best and the least to share with you. It's my toned down version of The Fashion Police. Here it goes.
Best Makeup: Heather Watson wearing Mulberry
The overall look is very cluttered. There's just too much fabric on the dress, and that paired with her booties makes the outfit look HEAVY, but I will say that I absolutely LOVE her makeup. From the waist up, she looks adorable.
The tennis community has missed her for almost a year (perhaps not the other WTA players), but get ready folks, because Serena Williams is returning to the tour NEXT WEEK at the AEGON International Tournament in Eastbourne with the plan to defend her title at Wimbledon later in the month!!
Li Na was already the first woman in a country of 1.3 billion people to win a WTA singles title, then the first to break into the top 10, and then the first to make it to a Major final. But now she will be known as the first Chinese woman to win a Major, as she defeated Francesca Schiavone 6-4, 7-6 (0) to win the French Open crown.
In honor of Li Na making it to her 2nd Grand Slam Final, here is her video from the Road To Roland-Garros team. In it she talks about her friends on tour (I think you'll find it funny why she likes JJ because it is for the exact same reason that most people don't like her), she learns how to speak French, and even attempts to teach Jeremy, the driver, Chinese. Enjoy!
