trophy watch + year-end championships

justine henin - year-end no. 1

We all breathed a sigh of relief upon seeing a cleaned-up Justine Heninsans pirate pants, that is — receiving this lame trophy from the SEWTA in Madrid. The Belgian will finish 2007 as the No. 1 player female tennis player in the world. This is the second year in a row that Justine has achieved this feat; she also did it in 2003.

Look at those biceps. Rawr.

Of course, Henin’s in town to vie for Sony Ericsson Championships, which begins next week. On the Baseline handicaps the field.

My picks: Henin wins the Yellow Group round robin and Daniela Hantuchova wins the Red Group. Henin takes it all. Who do you think will win? Tell us!

trophy watch: paris, quebec

November 5, 2007

This week’s winners were all about the streaks…

lindsay davenport wins quebec

Lindsay Davenport continues her successful comeback campaign with her second title in three tourneys. She beat Julia Vakulenko 6-4, 6-1 at the Quebec City Bell Challenge. She looked good wearing Nike‘s Drop Shot Cable Top from the winter collection.

nalbandian wins paris 2007

If it ain’t broke…: Boo to you, Masters Series Paris. You were in the running for best tennis trophy with your Fanti Tree, and you replace it with this. But hey, it’s better than a silver cup, right?

David Nalbandian continues his comeback with a 6-4, 6-0 destruction of Rafael Nadal in the finals. This is the second time in the last three weeks that the Argentine has beaten both Roger Federer and Rafa in the same tournament (the other being Madrid, which he also won. Not bad to have your only two titles in 2007 be Masters Series ones, no?). Could this latest streak mean that he’ll take the TMC like he did back in 2005?

Two more looks (one NSFW)…
