Here are my suggestions. Hope you enjoy them!

That's Entertainment by Pete Sampras

I'm imagining Stan and Maria's fashion titles as expensive coffee table efforts, full of glossy pics of Stan in the most garish ill-fitting sportswear he can find, and Maria in cheap ratty old threads, but just as styled and glossed to the nines as ever. Thinking about it, that one would probably sell, as girls and women would buy it thinking 'if she can look good in that stuff so can I' and guys because, well just because ;)

Friends and Rivals: Personal Stories of the Close Friendships on the WTA Tour

Oh this is a good picture:) Although to be fair to the players here, this could easily be a group of friends on a night out, with everyone playing with their phones instead of talking to each other.

Serena: colour really suits her
Maria S: the aloof Russian soul who seems to have brought a single spare shoe with hero_O
The others: why can't I recognise any of them apart from Radwanska? It is strange how different players can look off court.
