crashing weddings and posing with Usain Bolt, I’m sure the 17-time Grand Slammer has been practicing her legendary serve since she openly berated it during that second round loss to Garbine Muguruza. ReRe will need it if she’s to match Chris Evert’s and Martina Navratilova’s 18 major titles. It’s not clear whether the loss in Australia (sure, she had a back issue) combined with the defeat to the young Spaniard in Paris were anomalies, or a sign of real demise in the legend’s power game. Wimbledon will give us all a better idea, including ReRe herself.
Others to eyeball:

Maria Sharapova launched a pop-up shop for Sugarpova in Wimbledon Village at 89 High Street this week ahead of The Championships. The so-called "candy lounge" features a juice bar with drinks inspired by the Sugarpova flavors and a photo booth to commemorate your visit.
The Roland Garros champ even popped up inside the photo booth for some fun with British lady baller, Laura Robson. Is it me or is it weird to see her hanging out with another lady baller? Nope, it's WEIRD.
More shots from this week's launch below.

Michaella Krajicek thought it was just another day on the tennis court when her boyfriend, ATP baller Martin Emmrich, appeared after she won her first round match at the Top Shelf Open. The pair had met a year ago at this tourney, which made it the perfect place for a nervous Martin to ask her to marry him.
But to do it in front of a crowd of hopeful onlookers without a guarantee of success - why it's just like playing a match! But Michaella said "yes" and all was well. PHEW.

The Strisce Break Back Dress ($88) features "a scoop neck and back, stylish mesh inserts at shoulders for enhanced breathability, feminine cap-sleeves, single front pleat on hem and a printed metallic EleVen logo on upper back" according to her blog.
I was wondering what "strisce" meant so I looked it up. It could mean "striped" or "strips" in Italian based on the translations I could find online, which must mean it's spot on. Thanks Internets. I don't see how either one would apply to this dress though. Feel free to let me know otherwise.
It's pretty cool; nothing spectacular but there's really not much you can do with the Wimbledon rules against anything but white.
There's limited availability of the dress so get it while you can.
