Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov stepped away from the tennis courts at Wimbledon on Monday to share lunch together.
With their high-profile romance blossoming, Sharapova and Dimitrov took no notice of the cameras as they laughed together and held hands.
They may be the best looking sports couple (ever?) at the moment, but I have to give a big thumbs down to their outfits. Sharapova, who claims she does not follow trends, was wearing this season's monochrome trend and leather look. While her jumper and pink lipstick hit the mark, the bottom half is trying too hard and those platform sneakers are just god-awful. Sharapova does not need the extra height, so the only excuse I can think of is that it is a Nike sponsorship thing. As for Dimitrov, he stepped out in shades of moss. Every item works well individually, but put together he looks less like a sexy tennis player, and more like mouldy bread. Eek!
