tattoo watch: maria sharapova?!


This could just be a error, but the caption accompanying this Abaca Press photo of female player’s nape at Wimbledon identifies it as Maria Sharapova‘s. I’ve never seen her nape, so…

Three things:

1) Is this her neck? The top doesn’t look like the Nike tuxedo top. Even if you took off the sheer layer (leaving the sports bra), it still doesn’t look like Maria.

2) If this isn’t Maria, who is it?

3) What does the tattoo say?

    That top (white with black bra straps) was mattek’s dress, though. so this could be her. Also, that tat looks really fresh.

    NICK!!! How are you?! What are you doing these days?

    the tattoo is Timea Bacsinszky’s. I saw it while watching her battle Elena Dementieva in the 2nd round

    the letters of the tattoo are related to indian bengali language,i can read the letters individually but can’t figure out what the word means unless i see the whole of it
