fashion focus: agnes szavay’s fila separates

January 7, 2008

Agnes Szavay didn’t have much chance to show off her new Fila outfits in singles matches at the Mondial Australian Women’s Hardcourts, but she took full advantage of a showcase through doubles (with partner Dinara Safina).

The spring colors are white, black, and red. Fila moves away from the circles that dominated the 2007 line, and instead moves towards vertical and diagonal pinstripes. Not quite as feminine as her Makany dresses, but we’re not disappointed.

(What do you think of Agi’s Fila look so far? Tell us!)

If you’re jonesin’: The pieces are not yet available through online retailers as of this posting, but of course we’ll alert you when it happens.

just for the record: jesse levine ao wildcard + that henderson piece on andy murray

Not entirely sure why Jesse Levine‘s Australian Open wild card was so underreported, especially since U.S. tennis darling John Isner was vying for the spot (along with Levine, Wayne Odesnik, and Alex Kuznetsov). Is it because we all in protest because the USTA couldn’t give the WC to the too-old Robby Ginepri? It worked out for the best anyway; Ginepri, who was already down south for this week’s Medibank International in Sydney, had to retire from his qualifying match against Alberto Martin.

Congrats, Jesse. We hope you’ll make some noise Down Under. (And pat on the back to his female counterpart, Madison Brengle.)

Also, I noticed that I posted the wrong link to Jon Henderson‘s blog post on Andy Murray. If you got directed to a fluff piece about Steffi Graf and Justine Henin, I’m sorry. I’ve fixed the mistake on the original post, but you can also get to Henderson’s article here.
