WTA stars were treated with a spectacular view during the 2015 Roland Garros players’ party at the Eiffel Tower on Thursday, May 21st.
Wearing a long orange dress and black flats, two-time French Open titlist Maria Sharapova posed with fellow defending champion Rafael Nadal.
Working polka dots, Alize Cornet was accompanied by track-and-field athlete Ladji Doucoure.
Young French star Alize Lim appeared with her ATP pro boyfriend Jeremy Chardy.
This year, Ana Ivanovic will try for the seventh time to replicate her 2008 French Open success, but the pressure on the Serb to repeat the feat has significantly declined over the years and now everyone is talking about her rumored marriage to German footballer Bastian Schweinsteiger. However, the former world No.1 denied the media chit-chat, as judged by this quote I translated from Serbian paper Blic:
I got married? Do you really believe that my parents would allow that to happen without them knowing about it?
Czech players Barbora Strycova and Lucie Safarova joined forces at the gathering.
As well as Czech twins Karolina and Krystina Pliskova.
And last but not least, rising WTA star Daria Gavrilova made a video blog from the party kick-starting the claycourt Grand Slam. It seems that Alla Kudryavtseva was the star of the night with her dancing! 🙂 (photos via Sharapova’s Twitter, Roland Garros’ Facebook page)
