While WTA players, headlined by world No.12 Ana Ivanovic, have quickly transitioned to grass at the AEGON Classic, here at Women’s Tennis Blog we’re together with Simona Halep and Maria Sharapova enjoying the Roland Garros lag, relaxing a bit after two weeks of hard claycourt battles.
Casually-dressed in ripped jeans and Adidas t-shirt, the French Open finalist Halep arrived to a nice ceremony in her home country of Romania. Presenting her runner-up trophy, the native of Constanta was named the Romanian tourism ambassador.
Meanwhile, champion Maria Sharapova decided to catch up on the non-tennis part of her life, and besides shooting commercials, transforming a hair salon into a venue for her Wimbledon pop-up store, the Russian took some time off to visit the AEGON Championships and support her boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov during his victory over Britain’s James Ward in the second round.
As you can see, Pippa Middleton was also there close to Maria, sitting in the row in front of our WTA star.
After her visit to the Queen’s Club, Sharapova mingled with the crowd and took the Tube. Hmm, her fellow passengers didn’t seem to excited to sit next to the five-time Grand Slam champion!
