in lacko, diadora lives on

July 26, 2010

Lukas Lacko is playing an opening round match against the Latvian Ernests Gulbis at this week’s Farmers Classic in Los Angeles. While it’s not as crazy as the days of Guga Kuerten, the Diadora kit still has a slew of the loud colors (blue, red, and yellow on the wristbands) with subtle accents (the gold logo, contrast placket), but subdued with a darker, dominant color. Extra credit for the shell spiral print on Lacko’s tee.

Meanwhile, Gulbis’ hair is almost feral.

P.S. Gulbis beat Lacko in straight sets — 7-5, 7-5. The tourney’s fifth seed next faces the winner of Beck vs. Fall. (Draw: Singles.)

(O.T.) P.P.S. He annoyed the #@*&$# out of us in Shortbus, but we can’t get enough of Jay Brannan soothing/haunting cover of The Verve Pipe’s “The Freshmen”.

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).
