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!
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.
