tulle of the trade

May 19, 2009

Leave it to Maria Sharapova to stay glam on the clay courts of Warsaw even while nursing her taped-up bum shoulder. The former women’s No. 1 (now ranked 126th) stepped onto the courts of the Warsaw Open yesterday for her first singles match in nine months. Masha’s lack of match play clearly showed; she struggled to close out the first round match against Tathiana Garbin, but eventually figured it out. The final score: 6-1, 6-7 (6), 6-3.

The first round of the tourney is still playing out. The only notable change is the absence of Caroline Wozniacki, who pulled out of the event because of a bad back. (Wait — there isn’t a notation for a second seed… did someone else pull out?)

On her own: Maria and Nike keep on with their special make-ups, this time a high-waist dress with a mesh overlay that made its first appearance at Indian Wells (this picture above). This time around, the accent color goes from a light yellow — or “liquid lime” — to a bright orange.
