flashback: li ning @ the us open, pt. 2

September 23, 2010

Along with the orange and brown for Ivan Ljubicic, Li Ning also had this purple and orange polo making the rounds during the hardcourt season. Lovin’ all the texture!

Update: At the 2010 US Open, Ivan Dodig also wore a white/black Li Ning kit in his first-round match against Fernando Gonzalez. See pics from that match after the cut…

davis cup: mostly quiet on the eastern front

July 11, 2010

The boisterous crowd who came to cheer the Croatian Davis Cuppers at the Spaladium Arena in Split could not boost their home team past the more experienced Serbian posse at this weekend’s Davis Cup quarterfinal tie. The decisive 4-1 rout puts the team of Djokovic, Tipsarevic, Troicki, and Zimonjic in the semifinals — a first for their country in Davis Cup history. (Scoreline: Tie details)

Still, props to Marin Cilic for wearing his checkered Fila tee and notching the one “W” for Croatia (the second singles rubber, against Troicki). The lanky 21-year-old was gracious in his post-match presser, picking Nole and his team to the take the Cup this year.

The Serbs — pampered in their digs — showed up in a variety of kits all showcasing their country’s colors. Nole picked a solid red polo from Sergio Tacchini while Nenad opted for a more playful version in Lacoste. Troicki sprinkled some blue in his Los tee while Janko and his bangs stayed safe with Fila. On the Croatian side, Ljubicic and Dodig‘s Li Ning kits were both as uninspired as their play.
