Fourhand is the Daily Spin's occasional roundup of various hits and misses on tour.

GARISH  Lukasz Kubot may be sporting this season's worst on-court attire in men's tennis, but that didn't stop him from storming to the Gerry Weber Open doubles final alongside partner Alexander Peya. The two fell to Rajeev Ram and Raven Klaasen, the grass-court tournament’s defending champions. In the meantime, we'll wish that whoever told Tommy Haas to put some sleeves on at yesteryear's U.S. Open had saved his admonishing for this lack of style.

SHE'S GOT A FRIEND  Philadelphia magazine introduces you to the lawyer representing Maria Sharapova throughout her Meldonium-fueled career crisis.

LESSON TIME  Pity poor Emma Stone. She's having some trouble keeping that fuzzy little yellow ball in the court during Battle of the Sexes filming. Well, not everyone can be Kirsten Dunst in Wimbledon now, can they?

TKTK  Another week, another barrage of Serena Williams press. Here's a roundup: SW21's Epix documentary will debut on June 22, and therein, she finds it hilarious when her leggings rip over her derriere early in a trapeze workout (below). ... She's ready to try to match Steffi Graf major-for-major at the next Grand Slam event: "I'm sitting next to Anna Wintour right now. I just told her, I wish Wimbledon was tomorrow. I'm so ready to play!" ... And she's obsessed with The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Chick-fil-A, cutting back awhile ago to three servings at the fast-food eatery per week. Stars: They truly are just like us.
