Forget the World Cup! This week, we're all about Wimbledon. What has you tuning in and toning up this week? Tweet us @Shape_Magazine, tag us on @Instagram, or comment below.

1. Playing doubles. Call her the Princess of Wimbledon! Twenty-year-old Canadian  tennis player Eugenie Bouchard has even the royal family taking notice, and it’s not only for her skills on the court. "You can ask my coach or my parents or anyone that I can be a princess," the athlete joked about her famous name. Having bested Romania's Simona Halep this morning, Bouchard moves on to the women's finals. Meanwhile, a member of the actual royal family made headlines this week—Pippa Middleton sat down with Matt Lauer for her first-ever TV interview, saying that fitness and sports were very important to her and that she "wants to keep [them] up."

2. Moves like Maria. Hard-hitter Maria Sharapova may be out of Wimbledon, but our favorite tennis star (and former cover model) still has us gawking at her lean, mean physique. Sharapova shared her fitness secrets with The Coveteur, saying that her go-to circuit includes single-leg deadlifts, overhead triceps extensions, Russian twist ball tosses, and medicine ball sit-ups. As for her diet, Sharapova keeps it cool and told us she’s never been one to count calories. “I do weigh myself, though, to make sure I’m hydrated before matches because I sweat so much,” she said. “Water is a huge part of my diet. I have to force myself to drink it.”

3. From green dresses to green drinks. It’s been years since Jennifer Lopez’s infamous emerald Versace dress, but the pop star’s latest Us Weekly cover proves she’s still got it. J-Lo opened up about her decision to follow a vegan, plant-based diet, and credits the elimination of dairy, meat, and gluten over the past five weeks to helping her go from a size 4 to a size 2. “You got to work out, you got to watch what you eat,” says Lopez. “It's a job—you've got to buckle down.” The American Idol judge called on Neal Barnard, M.D., the same expert who advised Beyoncé and Jay-Z during their 22-day vegan challenge, to kick-start her weight loss.

4. High-fashion fitness. When spotted leaving ModelFIT gym in New York City this week, Taylor Swift sported wet hair, red lipstick, and heels, naturally. According to Us Weekly, the singer has been working with a trainer introduced to her by Victoria's Secret model and best friend Karlie Kloss. "She really wants that model body," confided one insider. Previously, Swift has taken a liking to fun exercises such as dancing or hiking, reportedly saying, "I do things that don't feel like working out.”

5. Moderation is key. "I felt like such a cheat when I had that band on my stomach," confessed Sharon Osbourne, who got candid with Entertainment Tonight about her food addiction and weight-loss struggles. Osbourne lost more than 100 pounds after she underwent gastric band surgery in 1999, but as she explains now, it wasn’t the remedy she was looking for. “It makes you vomit the whole time. Nothing goes down 'cause it goes out,” she revealed. Today, the redhead follows the Atkins diet but gives herself a break with those to-be-expected slip ups. "I don't guilt myself out," she said. "Because the next day, I'll start with my Atkins breakfast sandwich, and I'm right back on it."
