While Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal stole the limelight at the just-concluded US Open as they emerged champions, it was the better halves of some tennis stalwarts who grabbed attention. 

Wives and girlfriends of tennis players are regulars on the Tour, and no Grand Slam event is complete without them. Indeed, these pretty faces add to the glamour quotient.

These divas wear their emotions on their sleeves and fight the battle for their men off the court.

Take a look at some of those who were there at the season-ending Grand Slam.
