    OMG, this is awesome! I wanna have one of these. Maria looks adorable! All-in-all, the pictures are great. LOL, Davenport looks like smashing a tennis ball with a racket. It's nice to hear that tennis is the leading sport for women worldwide, much more this sport has so many talented and, at the same time, beautiful and glamorous athletes. Anyway, I am totally excited to watch these high-profile tennis players in the Olympics' opening ceremony… i can't wait =)
