ESTORIL, Portugal - Jarmila Gajdosova and Zheng Jie have been finding their feet in Estoril this week, not just on the court but off the court as well. The WTA stars were each given a pair of designer shoes from the tournament's official shoe sponsor, Luis Onofre, who came on site to the Estoril Open on Tuesday to present them. They were top of the line (and very expensive!)

It was a quadruple celebration for Gajdosova on Tuesday - new shoes, a singles win, a doubles win and last but certainly not least, her 24th birthday.

"It's been a great day. It's been the best birthday present, especially the shoes! Of course the wins are great too, but the pair of shoes is just awesome," Gajdosova commented. "They are stunning. He did an awesome job. I've seen his collection here at the tournament and all of them are very stunning."

Gajdosova, currently ranked No.31, is a two-time champion on the WTA, winning her first title in Guangzhou last fall and following that up with a victory in Hobart earlier this year. Zheng, currently No.53 but a former Top 15 player, has three career titles, one in 2005 (Hobart) and two in 2006 (Estoril, Stockholm).
