It is subtle, but:
They flipped Barty's image. She is not left handed.

Sports Illustrated?!? Oh dear. I was thinking a random tennis outlet upon seeing that kind of egregious mistake. Yikes!

They mistakenly used a picture of Kristyna instead of Karolina. Thus the blond hair and left handed grip.

:rofl:
Your intentionally wrong guesses at the problem with the photo are hysterical. It is sort of like a variation of the "Caption This" contests, but it would be closer to a "Miscaption This" contest.

And well, Yahoo tries, but they can't get a proper tennis coverage:

So, a story about Amelie Mauresmo and you put a shot of... who is this woman? Is she even a tennis player? (she looks familiar).

I think it's Alicia Molik. Molik is the current Australian Fed Cup Captain, and the shirt the woman in the photo is wearing says Australian Fed Cup on it.

Ah, I see. So, somebody made a search for "tennis players with AM initials" and ALICIA comes before AMELIE.
Sole explanation I can think of.

The photo's metadata might be wrong. And it might include "France" if the photo was taken there (but Australia hasn't played a Fed Cup tie in France in recent history, so that's dubious). Maybe the automatic photo editor does use the initials as a search element.

And/or... the photo editor or whoever thought, "yeah, that sound right, there was an A and an M" and called it a day.

From MSN. You could find shots from two players.
Too hard, I guess.

But, but...
Danillo does not have to worry about the Russian ban for Wimbledon. He is Italian!

Not to mention, the ban has not taken effect yet, so he cannot be back in the tour AFTER it.
