Day 25 - Favourite tennis WAG

(WAG = Wives And Girlfriends)

Dewi Petzschner

I guess that's a bit unusual choice, but as I'm following her on twitter, Dewi (wife of Philipp Petzschner) is probably the only WAG who I actually know something about. We see Mirka, Xisca, Jelena and Kim on TV quite often, but do we ever hear them speak? Not too much, truth be told. So, while I adore Jelena Ristic from afar (especially after seeing the video of her and Novak that you can find at the end of my post), love seeing Mirka Federer's photos with the kids, and want to have Kim Sears' hair - I don't get any chance to connect with them on any personal level.

Dewi is a different matter entirely - her tweets spell out her love for her husband and son, she obviously enjoys cheering on Philipp during his matches, she chats with his doubles partner, Jurgen Melzer - in short, she lets us know things about her life and I like it.

You can follow her here - the account is protected, but if you send a request, and you're not a nutjob, she'll probably accept it.

P.S. Novak & Jelena video, because they're too adorable not to mention it  -

P.S. 2 - I'm leaving for NYC and the US Open in a little bit more than 24 hours, and I opened a Facebook page for this blog. I'll try to post as many photos as I can, so if you want to see them - 'like' the page here.
Let me know if there's someone whose picture you'd especially like to see, and I'll do my best to oblige :)


  1. Have a great time in NYC and enjoy the tennis!

  2. Hope you have an amazing time in New York!

    Please take pictures of Berankis, Grigelis and of course the Israeli guys :)
