fed cup fashion roundup

May 4, 2007

While much ink has been spilled about last month’s Fed Cup ties, not many folks covered who wore what. Here it goes:

Best dressed woman: Australian Samantha Stosur donned her country’s sporting colors against Austria. (what a smart way to get out of the red/blue/white rut. When I get appointed as U.S. Secretary of Style, my first act will be to choose national sporting colors. How about aubergine and espresso?)

Honorable mention: For those who faced the red/white/blue head-on, some pats on the back. Serena managed just fine, looking wonderful in Nike (and with a new hairdo, even):

And Nicole Vaidisova wore some bedazzled (!) Reebok:

Best dressed team, off-court: The Russians. The women’s version of the warmups are equally as cute as the men’s version. (From left to right: coach Shamil Tarpischev, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nadia Petrova, Anna Chakvetadze, and Elena Vesnina.

Best dressed team, on-court: Kuznetsova and Petrova, whose pastels (and play) dominated against the Spaniards (They won 5-0).

Kuznetsova in purple Fila:

Failing grade: The U.S. Team. Dude, Serena and Venus — tennis fashion icons — play Fed Cup, and you have them wearing this?

trophy watch 2007: Battle of the Surfaces

May 4, 2007

Yet another example of a different trophy format. This time, it’s from the Battle of the Surfaces between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Nadal beat Federer 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (10). (May 2, 2007)

I know it’s just a plaque, but it looks as meticulously produced as the courts they played on.

Edit: From what I can tell, Nadal didn’t bite his plaque. If you know otherwise, drop me a line.
