Serena the fashionista
She may have lost to Ana Ivanovic today, but there is one area in which Serena Williams will always be a champion: the style stakes. The woman’s attention to detail is astounding, from her pink blazer with matching pink Beats by Dr. Dre headphones to her pink polka dot nails and her tiny Chanel purse. A Cartier bracelet, diamond necklace and large, expensive watch complete her look.
Inspired by this 2006 shot of Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, we decided to do some digging and find old-school photos of the players who are now at the top of the game.

The Genie Army
When Eugenie Bouchard beat Casey Dellacqua tonight, she didn’t have the entire crowd against her. Rather, Bouchard’s mini fan club – the Genie Army – turned up right next to the players box, with a sign proclaiming “Started from court 15, now we’re here #GenieArmy.” The group, who wore t-shirts bearing a letter of Bouchard’s nickname, cheered relentlessly for their idol. Surprisingly, the Genie Army isn’t from Bouchard’s native Canada but rather a group of (mostly male) Aussies who have taken a liking to the gorgeous 19 year-old. No surprises there.
When Rennae Stubbs commented that most members of the Genie Army would probably “propose to you right now if they could” in the post-match interview, Bouchard responded with a flat “No.”
Way to love ’em and leave ’em, Genie.
