Maria Sharapova made her debut at Roland Garros yesterday dropping the first set against Belarusian Anastasiya Yakimova but storming through the last two for a 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 opening round victory. And even though she hit 7 double faults, the 3-time Grand Slammer cracked 36 winners against 29 errors.
Shrieka also unveiled the top secret Nike dress she mentioned in her recent Weekly Doodle. The billowy tank dress has interesting detailing most noticeably the gauzy lighter blue tiered fabric that drapes asymmetrically around her waist.
Okay - the blue coloring (which continues the trend of her last few RG dresses) is striking against the crushed brick and the design is intriguing especially when it's in motion. But the dress hides any hint of her body lines and certainly couldn't be worn anyone who isn't as skyscraper tall as Shrieka.
Always leave it to the Russian, though, to bring something special to the party.
