Game, set, no love: Five reasons Irina Shyak may have had for giving Bradley Cooper the cold shoulder

Irina Shayk was caught on camera giving boyfriend Bradley Cooper the cold shoulder at Wimbledon.

The high-profile stars were among the famous faces seated in the Royal Box for the men's final between Scotland's Andy Murray and Canada's Milos Raonic.

But the BBC cameras picked up on some tension between the genetically blessed couple as they sat at Centre Court.

In a clip, that has been uploaded to Twitter, Bradley is seen smiling at his Russian girlfriend while she wipes a tear from her eye and gives him the silent treatment.

Bradley attempts a second look at Irina but she is having none of it, not even a little cheeky side-eye. Nothing. So rather than kick off in the middle of Centre Court, a slightly nervous-looking Bradley chooses wisely to return his attention to the tennis match.

So what could be the issue?

The Royal Box is zero craic

Apart from William and Kate the people in the Royal Box don't look like they'd be much fun to hang out with. It all looks a bit serious up there. Who are half of these people, anyway? Isn't this supposed to be fun? Why does nobody look like they're having enjoying themselves? Yes, Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie are they - they could be fun (-ish?) but they're new parents so they're probably exhausted. Plus David Cameron is up front, they have the back of his head to contend with for the entire match. If Irina is disappointed, we don't blame her.

She didn't like the Pimm's


There's no summer drink more quintessentially British than Pimm's and it's a courtside staple at Wimbledon. The Brits love hyping this one up. Bradley, who is a Wimbledon regular, probably went on and on and on about the drink to Irina. She fell for the big talk even though she just really wanted a sparkling water. The Pimm's was sticky, sweet and a major anti-climax. She's not happy. She's still thirsty.

A case of the ex

Bradley's ex-girlfriend Suki Waterhouse was also attending the men's final and was seated just yards from the couple - a little too close for comfort, perhaps?

She had something in her eye

Where's Beyonce?

Beyonce was at the women's final for close pal Serena William's win on Saturday so plenty of people expected her to show up for the men's finals. Maybe Irina, who had been at Wimbledon for most of the week, was tired of making the trek out to the event and wanted to sit the last game out. But Bradley, knowing that Irina is a big fan of Bey (we don't know this) probably used her as bait to get his girlfriend to attend the match. Then when they get there and Bey is a no-show, Irina realises she's been had and gets p*ssed off.

Maybe... but probably not. We really think she just had something in her eye.
