British No.3 and WTA up-and-comer Johanna Konta took part in Cardio tennis at the Brighton Virgin Active and Racket Club today in England. The Team GB Fed Cup star, who wears Venus Williams’ EleVen collection, is preparing for the Aegon International.
Before they hit the clay in Rome to play the Internazionali BNL d’Italia, the players are hitting the streets of Rome to take in the sights, the food and play tourist. Let’s see who’s done it best in the past few days:
Caroline Wozniacki lives in Monaco, but the sight of numerous Lamborghinis surprised her (so you know there were a lot):
Andy Murray participated in a kids clinic today at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome. Andy hit some shots with the kids and answered some of their questions. Journalists in the making?
As for the real journalists, they managed to squeeze out of Andy how Jo-Wilfried Tsonga repaid him for the private jet to Rome (and his fashion). “I was impressed of the effort and when we got to the hotel we were in the same restaurant and he paid for my dinner and he had another suit on. I wore a track suit and then later, jeans,” Andy said.
Jamie Murray took a break from the clay court season to hit the grass – the grass course, that is. Jamie took part in the Celebrity Golf Club Live event at Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, Wales, looking pretty dapper. Nice swing!
A loss at the Madrid Open couldn’t keep Roger Federer from enjoying a night out! The GOAT was spotted out with wife Mirka and friends at the fancy Madrid restaurant, Horcher, last night. RF sported a snazzy suit (and a big grin) for the occasion.
Today at the Madrid Open, the front row at the Caja Magica was jam-packed with the best of Spain’s football stars. Club Atletico de Madrid player Radamel Falcao, his wife Lorelei Taron, Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, his girlfriend Irina Shayk, and Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos were in attendance as Rafa Nadal defeated David Ferrer.
Q: Did Venus buy all of those hats yesterday? S. Williams: The past few days she has been in hat mode: She has been in all the foregrounds and I was in the background. She loves to shop so I was a little disappointed.
Q: So she is going to bring back a bunch of hats. What do you take back…
S. Williams: Usually something that goes on my ass (…Laughter).
