A tennis-centric paparazzo has to love that there's someone like Maria Sharapova in the world. (Or, for that matter, Serena and Venus Williams.) On the streets of Madrid this week, Sharapova was seen—and snapped—walking with Grigor Dimitrov, her now almost assured boyfriend. She is 26; he's 21. He just took down the No. 1 player in the world, Novak Djokovic, and she has herself a perpetual riddle to solve named Serena. He favors Nike sweats, and she has a recent penchant for pajama pants.

Earlier this week, Dimitrov told reporters that he was inspired to defeat Djokovic thanks to a message from his girlfriend, words he will recall for the rest of his life. Assuming that is indeed Sharapova, what do you think she said to him?

Good luck staving off the media bonanza now, Maria. Your move.
