Before our post, a shout-out to Sandy Beverage…
19-year-old Russian Evgeniya Rodina gave Maria Sharapova a scare in the first round, taking a set off the top seed before falling 8-6 in the third during their first-round match.
Props to Evgeniya for sporting Fila‘s Spring Heritage Dress (the separates of which Svetlana Kuznetsova wore back in March). The wrap at the bust is a nice touch.
More to come: TSF stopped by the Fila showroom in NYC last week and saw what they’ll have in store for the ladies in 2008. You can look for that slimming swath of fabric (in navy on this piece) to pop up on Agnes Szavay Wimbledon halter dress — yes, the halter, which we thought disappeared after her Fila sponsorship, is back!
Fila designers told us that Agi is very involved with the design of the clothes, and we’ll definitely see that when the more form-flattering designs roll out later this year. The Heritage collection will also feature prominently during the 2008 U.S. Open.
Buy: Fila Spring Heritage Dress, $65 at TennisExpress.
