Tennis players swapped the court for the red carpet at an annual pre-Wimbledon party to celebrate the start of the tournament.

British star Laura Robson was among the sports stars who glammed up for an evening at London’s Kensington Roof Gardens for the Women’s Tennis Association event.

Robson wore a hot pink off-the-shoulder dress and looked happy to be gearing up for one of the biggest events on the sporting calendar.

She was joined by Victoria Azarenka who wore a pale blue lace dress, whilst Petra Kvitova went for a monochrome look.
