talk to ‘em, johnny

March 24, 2011

Can Johnny Mac schedule a fashion counseling session with BYU’s Jimmer Fredette – and the rest of college basketball, for that matter? We, too, are obsessed with the leaping ability of SI cover boy Jimmer, but could do without the past-my-knees shorts that make him (and all players) look like they’re still 13 and playing alley ball. C’mon, fellas.

aussie summer & cali/miami spring brings out white stosur

March 24, 2011

Sam Stosur‘s been wearing this white Lacoste dress since the beginning of the year. Too bad it isn’t photographing well; hard to see the bright trim on the collar, sleeves, and the cutout. And boy does she love that orange (which was also the color of the shorts under that dress, by the way): from what FortyDeuce gathered on the practice courts of Indian Wells, that shade’ll carry over onto her kit for the Roland Garros swing (but in stripes).

As the fourth seed at this week’s Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, she beat Zheng Jie 6-2, 6-1 in her opener and plays the winner of Schnyder/Safarova match. (Who’ll lose her mind first: Lucie or Patty?)

…or are you just happy to see me?

Jarmila Groth and Juan Ignacio Chela dropped by the Miami Metro Zoo before they begin competing at the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Fla. Groth, the 28th seed, will open her 2011 Miami run with a match against Yaroslava Shvedova, who took out Sara Errani 6-3, 5-7, 7-6 (5). Groth shares the bottom half of the draw with Clijsters, Vika, and Schiavone, among others. And on the men’s side, Chela will play the winner of the Feli Lopez/Berankis match. He has a potential fourth-round match against Rafael Nadal.
