Net Gains: Ivanovic puts up a futile defence as tongues start wagging

When you are one of the world's most beautiful sportswomen, speculation about your private life is inevitable, especially when someone new appears in your entourage. Ana Ivanovic said she would "rather talk about my tennis at the moment", but it was no surprise when she was asked yesterday about the courtside presence of Adam Scott, the Australian golfer, who watched the Serbian beauty play for the second time this week. "I wouldn't like to comment on that," Ivanovic said, before adding: "I think it's great to see familiar faces in your box when you look for support." Ivanovic's brief relationship with the Spanish tennis player Fernando Verdasco ended at the start of this year, at around the same time Scott was said to be dating the actress Kate Hudson after breaking up with his long-time girlfriend Marie Kojzar. Ivanovic and Scott are both Rolex ambassadors and both live in Switzerland. Ivanovic is such a big name in Belgrade, she can barely walk down the street without being mobbed, which is one of the reasons why she likes living in Basel, which is also Roger Federer's home city. "There are quite a lot of famous people who live in Basel, like Michael Schumacher, so people keep their distance and give you privacy," she said.

Herzog & de Meuron's proposed Tate Modern extension is almost an original piece of architectural design but its form has been simplified since the first version of the scheme was presented. And even that version – a giant tectonic logjam erupting upwards from the edge of the Thames – resembled the practice's design for a Swiss pharmaceutical company headquarters. Art, of course, is as much a drug as Viagra or ecstasy; and so is headline architecture.

Scottish Ensemble / Morton, Wigmore Hall, London

The Wigmore Hall is celebrating the legacy of the Swiss conductor and patron Paul Sacher (1906-99), who used the millions he married into to commission a string of modern masterpieces from Bartok, Strauss, Stravinsky, Carter, Boulez, Britten et al, and left a research foundation in Basel stuffed with sketch material and memorabilia. This visit by the 12 strings of the ever-welcome Scottish Ensemble led by Jonathan Morton brought forth three of Sacher's best.

Wenger: defeat is unthinkable, and so is playing badly

Oh what a feast, oh what a tasty delight, oh what - given the presence of the Swede Henrik Larsson - a smorgasbord.
