in flushing meadows, the anta girls sputter

2010 US Open fourth seed Jelena Jankovic wasn’t really in the conversation as a gunner for this year’s title, as seen by her immediate hiccup in the first round against Simona Halep, who served for the match against the Serbian before falling 7-5 in the third. JJ also needed three sets to beat qualifier Mirjana Lucic (two snaps to her for making it to the main draw, btw) and then fell to Kaia Kanepi in the third round.

We love that she added the pink sports bra and hot pants under the purple ANTA dress that she’s been wearing for the summer hardcourt swing; way to rejuvenate an outfit, no? Note the purple detail in her shoes, and the pink in her fingernails.

And on 21st seed Zheng Jie, the Chinese brand went with swirling shades of white and blue — an underdeveloped version of what Fila put on their ladies (Clijsters, Agi Szavay). Zheng crashed into the resurgent Ana Ivanovic in the second round and only won three games.
