fashion focus: a lotta lotto blue

January 23, 2009

Lotto decided to keep last spring‘s aqua blue for this year’s spring kit, choosing instead to tweak the clothing design. David Ferrer wore both the blue/white and white/blue version of the spring tee this week’s Australian Open. He beat fellow Lotto player Dominik Hrbaty in the second round before falling to 11th seed Marin Cilic 6-7 (5), 3-6, 4-6.

Here’s Hrbaty in his second-round match.

In a grand slam that’s seen almost every outfitter overwhelm spectators with bright, bright (did we say bright?) offerings, it’s refreshing to see Lotto take a more subtle-but-still-colorful route.

From the back: And we picked Gilles Muller to show off the detail on the back of the shorts (plus the bumblebee shoes). The unseeded Luxembourger lost to eight seed Juan Martin del Potro 7-6 (5), 5-7, 3-6, 5-7.

davis cup: the boys in red win for serbia

September 20, 2008

All four guys on the Serbian Davis Cup team — Nole, Nenad Zimonjic, Viktor Troicki, and Janko Tipsarevic — did their part to win their World Group playoff tie against Slovakia this weekend. (And everyone managed to keep their clothes on, unlike last year’s peep show!)

Djokovic wore a red adidas polo while taking out Dominik Hrbaty 6-2, 6-4, 6-3.

And blue-spectacled Janko, in Fila, had to work for his five-setter against Lukas Lacko. The score: 6-7 (3), 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5), 8-6. That win must feel good, especially in light of how Janko’s ankle has sidelined him in some late summer tournaments.

For the clincher, Zimonjic (Nike) and Troicki (Diadora) beat Filip Polasek and Michal Mertinak in four tough sets: 7-6 (8), 6-4, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (5).

Dominik Hrbaty serves it up FRESH at the Open

2007 U.S. Open: We’ve been watching the qualies, practice sessions, talking to coaches, photographers, and everyone else out here… Not that many big upsets on Day 1, but some good matches took place on Monday. Americans Donald Young and John Isner won their first round matches, leading me to think at least one of them will make a run to the quarters. Tommy Haas also won.

On the women’s side Henin and Jankovic won their matches in straight sets. Caroline Wozniacki (who played in the juniors last year) won her first round showdown with Tzipora Obziler in three sets. Also Ahsha Rolle upset Tatiana Golovin under the Louis Armstrong stadium lights.

Look for the Day 2 wrap tonight and stay tuned for more pics.
