Sweeping the Court

This week, Maria Sharapova was named the face of the new Avon fragrance "Luck," for men and women. Avon products are produced by the Avon Foundation, which offers powerful and humane support to women and girls throughout the world.

Victoria Azarenka (remember Victoria Azarenka?!) will return to the tour in Eastbourne.

Simona Halep got a warm reception when she returned to Romania after reaching the final of the French Open.

Martina Hingis has been granted a wild card into the doubles main draw at Wimbledon. Her partner will be none other than Vera Zvonareva (remember Vera Zvonareva?!)

You still have time to donate to the Rally For Bally.

When fiery Italians get together, they go to the beach.

I am happy to see Zvonareva as a singles and doubles wildcard. It was nice of Wimbledon to recognize that she was a finalist in 2010.

Diane you usually know I don't deal off-court things that much, but ESPN had a photo of Sharapova w a ring on her "ring finger" which looked like it could be an engagement ring. This was while she was watching Dimitrov's final (on ESPN photowire)

I didn't see the ring but I assume if they were engaged, the press would be all over it. I saw her several times while I was watching the match, but somehow missed the ring. In his speech, he thanked her for watching the final. Good match--he saved a match point.

I noticed a ring -- not sure if it's the same one -- in the trophy photos at the Eiffel Tower, too. You can see it when you do a search for the photos.
