There But for the Grace of God Goes Dinara

rsz 182076957 There But for the Grace of God Goes Dinara

Minutes after barely surviving her first-round match, Dinara Safina admitted that her victory was, well, miraculous. “God knows,” she said when a reporter asked how she managed it. “Like, I mean, God knows how I pulled it out. Not me.”

It took divine intervention, perhaps, and also her mantra to go “just point-by-point…And not make a double fault.” She described her game as “a little bit ugly” (a bit of an understatement when she had more than two times as many errors as winners), but was hopeful and a bit Zen about what went wrong

“Well, I don’t know. I try to do something good, but when it doesn’t go good, then I go like too much into myself, what I’m doing right, wrong, instead of thinking more what I have to do with the ball...The positive — let’s say, worse it cannot be. It was already. So for now on it can be only better. I think that’s it.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
