When she won Wimbledon at the tender age of 17, beating the allmighty Serena Williams in the finals, everyone knew that Maria Sharapova will be a legendary player, but no one could predict she will reach her momentum of glory through so much pain and struggle.

Forget clay court season and Monte Carlo Masters, with renewed battle between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Forget Fed Cup with Serena Williams, Russians and Serbian beauties. This week is all about Maria Sharapova pranking fans with her new haircut.

American John Isner scored the biggest win of his career on Saturday at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, by upsetting World No 1 and defending Indian Wells Champion Novak Djokovic in three gruelling sets, 7-6 3-6 7-6 to reach his first ever ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Final and Top 10 of ATP rankings.

When it comes to the dazzling world of Hollywood and high fashion, Maria Sharapova and Williams Sisters are the best representatives of tennis, and the Vanity Fair party wasn’t an exception, as these ladies looked amazing on the red carpet.
