How do you solve a problem like Maria? That's the question that a good many WTA players—basically everyone save Serena Williams—pose to themselves these days. That said, Maria Sharapova herself donned an outfit today that channeled Julie Andrews circa The Sound of Music. "Last minute preparations before the Sugarpova event at Colette," she captioned the image, which displays her in black and sporting a white priestly collar.

What do you think of her look? And, more important, what of her chances to repeat at Roland Garros? It seems a giant-sized shadow stands in her way—once again, Serena. The Spin opines that the younger Williams sister isn't going to be stopped in the first round this year, though, oddly enough, she hasn't made it past the quarterfinals on the terre battue in more than a decade. Even so, she won the Rome tournament last week. The last time she did that: 2002. And the last time she claimed the French Open title: also 2002.

It's coming.
