Giving tennis more than a shot

Shining On The Track Before Shining On The Court


With eight flag bearers at Friday’s Opening Ceremonies, needless to say that tennis was very well represented. And all of them did their country, and their sport, very proud as they shone on the track of the Olympic Stadium.


Let’s look at them all, in the order in which they walked into the stadium.


Max Mirnyi – Belarus



A very dashing Beast…


Marcos Baghdatis – Cyprus



Stephanie Vogt – Lichtenstein



Agnieszka Radwanska – Poland





Horia Tecau – Romania



The mustard-coloured jacket was really becoming on this good-looking doubles player.


Maria Sharapova – Russia



Gorgeous as always… despite the hat!


Novak Djokovic – Serbia



Like a kid with his first toy! 


Stanislas Wawrinka



Proud and very emotional, I chose this photo because he smiles.


It was a very deserved honour for all of them.


On Sunday, all of them will be in action, as they were all dispensed of playing on Day 1, which is only fair. It is now their time to shine, on the tennis courts of Wimbledon.
