Turning Heads Down Under

WTA #22 ranked Russian tennis player Ekaterina Makarova is making waves at the 2014 Australian Open. Makarova began the tournament by rubbing out Venus Williams in three sets (2-6, 6-4, 6-4) in a minor upset. Makarova advanced to the third round yesterday by eliminating American Irina Falconi is straight sets (6-2, 7-5).

Her reward? A match with #64 ranked upstart Romanian Monica Niculesua, who knocked off #15 ranked German Sabine Lisicki in three sets (2-6, 6-2, 6-2). Ms. Makarova is also the subject of today's Chick Pic.

How do you climb the WTA ranks? Hustle! 1

Unwinding after a match? 2
I doubt this is how she rests up before the next match. 3
I doubt this is her getting ready for the next set, either. 4
The scene before a different kind of one-on-one matchup. 5
Keep knockin' 'em dead, Ekaterina! 6
