Global Girls’ Weekend: The Fed Cup Photo Smash

While the WTA Tour takes a break from tournament play following the Australian Open, some of the players certainly aren’t resting. The women are set to #ShowTheirColors this week as they suit up for Fed Cup, with ties taking place in the Europe/Africa Group I in Budapest as early as Wednesday. Let’s see what they’ve been up to…

The Aussies are a little far from home in snowy Stuttgart as they headed west to take on Germany in a World Group first round tie.

You’ll have to forgive them; they packed lightly.

Should’ve gotten some tips from…

Team Switzerland. Belinda BencicTimea BacsinszkyViktorija Golubic and Xenia Knoll definitely checked the forecast before heading to Helsingborg ahead of their tie with Sweden, leaving time for more frivolous activities.

Say cheese, Alizé! (And check out my sick rhymes, while you’re at it.) Cornet will lead Team France against Italy in a World Group tie in Genoa.

And while we’re talking about France….

Hipster Kristina Mladenovic > other forms of Kristina Mladenovic.

Alanis Morissette might call this, um, ironic. (It’s definitely something.)

Maria Sharapova is back well, IN, Poland for Russia’s World Group tie. Sometimes, the jokes write themselves.

“I’m not a regular mom; I’m a cool mom! Right, Nastia?” #quotemyskinamaybe

Death to the “selfie stick!” Heather Watson and the rest of Team GB, in Budapest ahead of the E/A Group I action, pulled this one off the old fashioned way.

(As old fashioned as you can get doing something that only officially came into existence last year.)

Lost in Translation: II, starring Olga Govortsova.

(For the Jeopardy watchers: Fehéroroszország, literally White Russia, is how Belarus is written in Hungarian. I expect a cut of your winnings.)

Team Croatia is ready!! #idemooo

 There is no chance that Ana Konjuh skips leg day. Those are some IMPRESSIVE quads, young Ana. Team Croatia is also in Budapest, drawn into a group with Belgium, Israel and Latvia.


Without Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic and Bojana Jovanovski, Team Serbia’s hopes of getting back out of zonal action rest on the shoulders of Aleksandra Krunic, who’s joined by former junior No. 1 Ivana JorovicDoroteja Eric and Vojislava Lukic.

You’ve been taught well, young Aleksandra.

#tbt to simpler times.

One shot, two angles. Germany, let Leo DiCaprio know when the top stops spinning, will you? #photoception
