french 77 puma

Puma has finally released the much anticipated Guillermo Vilas-inspired French 77 line this month, and I’m sad to say that except for a cute few items, it didn’t quite live up to the hype. Why give us something that Stella McCartney‘s pretty much done for adidas? (Read the rest of the entry…)

happy monday: he’s a bad-haas

April 30, 2007

Save for my mention of Lindsey Nelson‘s win yesterday, I kept to my promise of staying away from the blog this weekend. (But that doesn’t mean I didn’t spend my time away from the computer. I spent all of Saturday watching 30 Rock on nbc.com. The more serious moments of the show reminded me of Sports Night…)

So while I gather my thoughts for the coming week, I leave you with these bits:

– See this number-crunching (hot!) article by Gavin Versi in Tennis magazine. He analyzed data on injured players who retire during matches (especially when they’re close to losing a match). Not earth-shattering behavorial conclusions, but still worth reading to know who the top “offenders” are in each tour. (Hint: It’s a German ATP-er and a Serbian SEWTA member.)

battle of the stars

– Here’s a photo of the court they’re building for the NadalFederer exhibition. While the court looks crazy — it’s half clay, half grass! — I have to agree with Jon Wertheim about the buzz surrounding this event (see the second to last paragraph). I guarantee you that this marketing ploy will have longer staying power than Night Tennis.

– I updated the trophies page with the goodies from this week. Some nice cups, but no striking party favors for the winners (Rafael Nadal, Gisela Dulko, and Paul-Henri Mathieu).

– Kenneth in the 212 points out a few tennis print ads, including Robby Ginepri for Under Armour and one for the K-Swiss SI-18 Rannels (aka the shoe Kournikova‘s been hawking).
