Tennis Stars hit the net at Melbourne Practice

The newest addition to Lindsay Davenport's cheer squad was courtside to watch the eight-time world number one in action.

Jagger Jonathan Leach, seven months, watched as his mum took to the centre court ahead of her comeback campaign. Young Jagger contentedly chewed on an accreditation pass while he sat on his nanny's knee.

The tot then got a cuddle from mum after she finished her practice session.

The 31-year-old's pregnancy prevented her from competing last season.

Maria Sharapova, 20, took to centre court after Davenport. After a warm-up with a skipping rope and a few throws of a gridiron ball, Sharapova grabbed a racquet.

On court three, defending champion Serena Williams, 26, and big sister Venus, 27, were supported by their mother Oracene Williams and Australian hitting partner Mark Hlawaty.

A trim and toned Serena has already begun the season in style, teaming with Mardy Fish to win the Hopman Cup in Perth last week.

Venus -- who is as well known for her on-court fashion as for her serve -- was dressed yesterday in pieces from her own clothing label Eleven.

The sisters shared a laugh as Serena, world number seven, jokingly played air-guitar on her tennis racquet as her sister practised.

World number 1 Roger Federer, last year's finalist Fernando Gonzalez and Russian Marat Safin arrived in Melbourne last week.

More stars are set to fly into Melbourne this week for the Australian Open, which kicks off next Monday.

Tennis fans will also have plenty of opportunities to see their favourite sports stars as they relax off-court between matches.

The Crown complex, the city and Chapel St are common stomping grounds for Australian Open stars.

Is that a trick question. The sisters outfits and accesories are pretty much more talked about than their tennis.

Let's put it this way. She's far more known for her fashion sense than you apparently are for mental prowess.
