The French Open finalist attended boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov's first-round match against Dudi Sela at the Aegon Championships in London. She was treated to plenty of drama as Dimitrov prevailed 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (4) after Sela served for the match in the third set.

Sharapova, 26, is not playing this week after losing to Serena Williams at the French Open on Saturday. Dimitrov, 22, made the semifinals at Queen's Club last year.

Dimitrov lost in the third round of the French Open, where he was asked about his view of the paparazzi in the wake of being snapped cuddling with Sharapova at the Madrid Open last month.

“Well, they’ve got to live, right?” he told reporters with a laugh. “It will happen, so I have to be ready. Next time I’ll wave, maybe.”

Sharapova opened up about her private life in an interview with USA Today last month.

"It's about finding the person where you can be yourself all the time, where you're comfortable with being younger girl, the older girl, the mature girl, and the person that understands you and look at you and say you're completely off your rocker!" she tells USA TODAY Sports, chuckling.

"I have so many things going on in my life and I really love them. Of course I want someone to be by my side to enjoy them. You know, I can jump on a plane tomorrow and go somewhere because I want to do it. And it's really important that that person respects me for the decisions that I make and the things that I do in my life."

Here are more pictures of Sharapova at Monday's match.
