June 7, 2011

Here’s South African model Bryce Thompson (yeah, him) in a sports-themed layout in the June 2011 issue of GQ. Not quite tourney-compliant, but here’s the tennis outfit: a Reebok Emporio Armani jacket, Daniele Alessandrini purple shorts, Fusion tights, Nike shin guards and trainers.

Bonus round: See video from the shoot here, and the rest of the layout here.

(tuesday’s) sunday survey: the channel slam

June 7, 2011

Just over the net. Another year, another batch of players proving the French Open and Wimbledon are just too close together on the calendar. Roger Federer‘s groin needed a rest after his run to the Roland Garros final, while Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic all seemed to half-heartedly make the train ride up from Paris to London for Queen’s Club this week. Meanwhile, Maria Sharaova opted out of Birmingham. So what’s the answer? It’s your call below — and remember! — the tennis governing bodies check TSF religiously. So obvi this vote will change the future of tennis…

how cute is heather watson?

June 7, 2011

That 1000 Watt-son smile. Seriously. How cute is Heather Watson? The new British no. 2 was one of eight girls to make the leap into the top 100 following the French Open. The 19-year-old Watson moved up from no. 117 to no. 93 in the world by reaching the second round after winning three qualifier matches at Roland Garros. In Birmingham this week, Watson takes on Chanelle Scheepers in the first round, the no. 15 seed. In this WTA Xperia vid, she tours the crew around the grounds and couldn’t be more candid, cute or genuinely sweet. Ew… Now I’m grossing myself out. The girl is cool. You get it!
