2. Andrea Petkovic, the fighter:

The German No.1 Andrea Petkovic just made a comeback after taking more than 3 months off due to injury. Only in her third match, she again suffered a injury.

Important things to note from this video

1. The injury is looking very bad especially in slow motion.

2. The reaction of Petkovic's team says how tough its going to be for her to make a comeback, again.

3. It was extremely nice gesture from World No.1 Victoria Azarenka to bring ice pack for her opponent and help her off the court.

Soon after Petkovic was injured, many of her peers tweeted their regards. And Petkovic was accompanied to doctor by her good friend Julia Goerges. This is what makes WTA so rocking. These girls support each other so well.

In press conference, Petkovic told "I will be back". That's the spirit, Petko. Get well soon.

3. Maria Sharapova, The Diva, Caroline Wozniacki, The Charming and Ana Ivanovic, The Elegance:

Rogers Cup, which takes place in August, as a build up to US Open has started their promotions. They have come up with some interesting names for their players. Maria Sharapova, The Diva, Caroline Wozniacki, The Charming and Ana Ivanovic, The Elegance.

4. Sam Stosur's way of celebrating:

World No. 5 Sam Stosur took on the defending champion Julia Goerges at Stuttgart yesterday. The German was leading the H2H battle 2-0 pretty comfortably. It was a tough match and finally Stosur won the match 62 26 63. This being the first time Stosur has beat Goerges, Sam had her own way of celebrating it.

1st win over Julia, we are pretty happy.
