trophies: indianapolis, umag, austria, stanford, rio, etc.

July 29, 2007

The trophy gods worked hard to give us some good ones this week:

In the hotfest over at the Austrian Open in Kitzbuehel, Argentinian Juan Monaco (in adidas) got taken to three sets by Potito Starace (wearing Le Coq Sportif). Bonnie was right: Juan should have been in my top 5. Really, I’ve never noticed a six pack bursting out of a shirt like that…

Pictureless: Italian Francesca Schiavone won her first career title in Bad Gastein, but we are without pictures. Congrats, Francesca!

In Umag, veteran Carlos Moya tells us not to write him off just yet with his 6-4, 6-2 win over Andrei Pavel. Gap-toothed or not, he’s still hot. And kudos to the tourney organizers for coming up with that offbeat blue trophy.

Other trophies: Stanford, Pan-American Games, and Indianapolis trophies after the cut…

A few notes to start: Vice‘s annual photo issue is out, so make sure to pick up a copy before they disappear. Also, perfect Sunday afternoon = surprisingly potent Chipotle margaritas while window shopping at the Bev Center.

Did anyone else notice how Juan Monaco was BURSTING out of his adidas kit while playing Potito Starace in today’s Austrian Open final? The world is totally unfair.

Fashion: I love the silver trim on these shirts (both in red and white). I’ve been trying to look for it online to no avail, so if you have any tips, please send our way (tennisCBH AT gmail DOT com).

Bonus round: More pics of the white shirt, some Monaco training pics, and a screenshot. Enjoy!

Here are some more looks from Guga Kuerten, the eponymous fashion line of the Brazilian tennis star. That’s the spring/summer ’07 collection above (also by Agustina Comas).

Bonus round: This Tenis Pro clip shows Guga getting a massage (and talking about surfing, his Roland Garros titles, etc.). Later he gets dressed in his own designs.

fashion focus: guga kuerten + summer ’07 line

July 29, 2007

Oh man I was trying to get information about Gustavo Kuerten‘s clothing sponsor (because what blog covering tennis fashion would ignore this Brazilian’s bright-colored style?) and it turns out he has his own line.

HISTORY: Guga Kuerten launched on November 30, 2005 under the creative direction of top Brazilian designer Jum Nakao. (See a Nakao show.)

Along with tennis clothes, the line has beach wear, surf wear, and polo shirts — with a smaller “Mr. Kuerten” collection featuring jeans and polo shirts. As far as I can tell, the women’s line is all beachwear still. Its first store opened in Florianopolis.

Guga wore Diadora and Olympikus on court prior to the 2006 season and his own line after. You can spot the Guga line by it’s rough spiral logo (seen here on his sleeve).

The photos above are pieces from the High Summer ’07 collection designed by artist Agustina Comas for Nakao. It’s laid back, surfer, and preppy all at once. Very Seth Cohen of The O.C.. What do you think of the line? Tell us.

Buy: Check out Guga’s official website to purchase the clothes.
