Dustin Brown is considering an offer of British citizenship based on one of his grandparents having been British. He would become the British Number 2. He is presently playing as a German citizen. He's ranked thirteenth in that country.
Venus Williams Wimbledon dress. Venus says it was inspired by Tina Turner. The girls in the booth said it reminded them of the style of dress worn in the 1920's by women who were called flappers. Whatever inspired it it is a beautiful outfit. It screams class and elegance. Good work Venus.
Ana Ivanovic has been watching too much of the World Cup and seeing the grass thought she was in South Africa. The lack of vuvuzela's serenading her should have tipped her off. Anyway this is the worse I've seen so far. Aravane Rezai is still to come.
Couldn't leave him out could I?
