The Tiffany-ed Maria Sharapova has faced some close calls in the first three rounds of this year’s French but managed to eke out wins so far (and now it’ll get even easier with the Williams sisters out of the way).
It was a battle of fashion good vs. evil yesterday when Masha took on Bethanie Mattek in the second round. They played over two days, and Bethanie actually had a fairly respectable outfit from Bebe Sport for day one.
And the match (postponed due to darkness) resumed with Bethanie wearing her pink hooker dress which we first saw in March at Indian Wells.
God. Bless. America.
And her third-round opponent, Karin Knapp, gave a fight in the first set (even intimidating Masha with some second serve mindgames ala Azarenka) but sputtered 6-0 in the second. Oh well, at least she looked great in her pink and silver Fila separates. Fabric belts = trend du jour.
