She looked stunning in a white jumpsuit at the 1Oak Pre-Oscars party Saturday night (with her friends Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker), but Serena Williams looked Hollywood glam at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars Party in Hollywood Sunday night. In her creamy Michael Costello gown, Serena was seen chatting with Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris inside the party.

Wearing apparel from UNIQLO, Issey Miyake, Fendi and more, Nole shows off his model side in this great piece.
Look for the issue with Djokovic on the cover on newsstands now.

World Tennis Day is set to kick off on Monday and players are in cities across the world to celebrate. In Hong Kong on Sunday, Sam Stosur, Li Na, Lleyton Hewitt and Tomas Berdych attended a cocktail reception ahead of the BNP Paribas Tennis Showdown that will take place at the Hong Kong Velodrome tomorrow. Australian Open champion Li Na was clearly making the guests laugh as all the players signed autographs and posed for pictures at the intimate event.

Rory McIlroy extended his lead Saturday in the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens and by his side on the course was fiancé Caroline Wozniacki. In a bright yellow Adidas top, Caro walked the course as she followed her beau’s every move, no doubt giving words of encouragement along the way.

Still think Roger Federer‘s career is done? I never doubted his abilities, despite his age and the rise of others in the ATP, and Roger proved himself yet again after defeating Tomas Berdych 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 to win the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships on Saturday. The Swiss hit hotshots like this en route to his win, and said after “Things definitely went my way out here tonight, but I have had a lot tougher matches in the last one and a half years, so this is nice to get a lucky break again.”
That’s 78 career titles now for Roger. And I think there’s more to come.
