AKA the only other person aside from Juan Monaco whose hair can grow out without getting complaints from us. (Sorry, Andy Murray!)

BTW Ferrer (d. Almagro 6-3, 6-4) will play Nadal (d. Ivan Dodig 6-3, 6-2) in the 2011 Barcelona Open final tomorrow.

any reason to bring up anke huber? <3

April 23, 2011

Julia Goerges became the first German finalist at the WTA stop in Stuttgart since Anke Huber (!!) got there in 1996. She upset Sam Stosur 6-4 3-6 7-5 to book a spot in the final against Caro Wozniacki.

Also of note is how cute she looks as a Nike mascot in the tank version of the current Maria Sharapova collection — that teal tank is part of the same line as the gold-trimmed dress on Masha herself. Yes, we said tank because that skirt is non grata in our book; looks like something Alexis Mateo would’ve dreamed up on this season’s run of “Rupaul’s Drag Race,” no?

Bone up: All the Stuttgart news that’s fit to publish — at the event’s site.

Buy: Nike Maria Sharapova Statement Tennis Tank, $60, tennisexpress.com.

almagro climbs his way into the top 10

April 23, 2011

Nicolas Almagro came up short in the all-Spanish semifinal at the 2011 Barcelona Open, losing to David Ferrer 3-6, 4-6. It puts an end to another great run for Nico and puts Ferrer in his second final against Rafa Nadal in as many weeks. (They two duked it out for the Monte Carlo title, with Nadal prevailing.) But Almagro shouldn’t feel too bad: he’ll enter the ATP top 10 for the first time in his career when the rankings are released on Monday.

Stepping it up: Reebok‘s playing with prints again after keeping with solid polos to start out Nico’s year. Now there are white and teal colorways of the current crew done up with pseudo-trapezoidy/staircase-esque patterns. Not available stateside, but definitely available in brick-and-mortar stores en España. More info here: Reebok Competition Tech Top.

Draw: Read up on all the happenings of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell at the tourney’s here.
