WTA Diary: Best Of Enemies
Published August 12, 2014 12:12
Every week there's a lot happening on the WTA - on the court, off the court, by the numbers, even a few tweets... catch up on it all in this week's WTA Diary.
Ana Ivanovic and Sorana Cirstea put their friendship on hold for a couple of hours on Monday night as they battled it out for a place in the second round of the Western & Southern Open.
As she had in their previous two encounters, Ivanovic came out on top, this Radwanska-esque winner helping her to a 6-1, 7-5 win.
Maria was one of several big names chatting to Kristen Aldridge for the latest episode of WTA Live All Access Hour presented by Xerox.
Simona Halep may have been taking a well-earned break in recent weeks, but that hasn't stopped her climbing to the giddy heights of No.2 in the rankings.
Also on an upward curve at the moment is Caroline Wozniacki, who feels the hard work behind the scenes if finally starting to pay off.
Talking of which, here's what Serena will be wearing in New York.
One For The Future
Joining her there, although probably not in the same outfit, will be CiCi Bellis, who earned a wildcard spot by winning the USTA Girls' 18s National Championship.
On a more somber note, the tennis world paid its respects to Hollywood legend Robin Williams.
