the cutest barbed wire i have ever seen

October 19, 2009

The folks at Athletic DNA have given Aussie Peter Luczak a patriotic version of their Warrior tee (yes, we quiver in the face of all that barbed wire!). Unfortunately, this tough exterior was no match for the fresh Joachim Johansson, backed by his hometown crowd in their first-round battle at this week’s IF Stockholm Open.

Buy: Athletic DNA warrior tee, in white/grey, $49.95 at athleticdna.com.

pimpim primps: joachim’s new look at stockholm

October 19, 2009

No more Yawn-ex: It seems that Swede Joachim Johansson has switched from Yonex to the much more prim-and-proper Fred Perry.

He’s competing in this week’s IF Stockholm Open as a wildcard — only his second tourney of 2009 — and has won his first round match against Peter Luczak 7-5, 6-2. He next faces Juan Monaco.

Bits: The event’s top three seeds are Soderling, Haas, and Ferrero. See the draw here.

Meanwhile, on the eastern side of the globe in Osaka, the fashion was a bit more subdued in the form of a simple accessory: the flower pin.
