Wimbledon miscellany

Here is a fine piece from the New York Times on Martina Navratilova.

And here is more on the 9-time Wimbledon champion.

After Wimbledon, 2004 champion Maria Sharapova is going to Belarus to visit an area affected by the Chernobyl nuclear incident. Sharapova, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme--through her foundation--supports a number of Chernobyl-affected areas in Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine.

I've already mentioned how much I like Jelena Jankovic's Wimbledon dress; my other favorite is Serena Williams' "strawberries and cream" creation.

1969 Wimbledon champion Ann Jones showed up in high heels for the on-court event with the Queen Elizabeth II, resulting in some spiked turf.
