RePRINTed: Our buddy Jordan snapped this photo of Philip Burke drawings in the February issue of PRINT. The images of Ana Ivanovic and Novak Djokovic originally appeared in The New York Observer‘s coverage of the 2007 U.S. Open. God bless iPhones.

All in the family: Just FYI — Kellie Kuehne, the golfer sister of Venus Williams‘s golfer boyfriend Hank, plays the green wearing EleVen clothing. Whodathunk the clothing would be so versatile?

Amelie inspires socks: Dear Miss Mauresmo, I know you’re a little down these days — contemplating retirement, even) — in your latest slump you should know that (a) you lost a very streaky-but-good player in Tamarine Tanasugarn at this week’s Qatar Total Open, and that you’ve (b) inspired Claire to knit some socks. That’s right: socks. In your honor. Based on the dress you wore when you won the Australian in 2006. xoxo – TSF

The higher they go… The sullied career of Martina Hingis gets dealt another blow (hee) in the wake of her testing positive for cocaine at last year’s Wimbledon. According to Tennis Week, adidas dropped its endorsement contract with the former No. 1 because of a zero-tolerance policy on substance abuse.

At Chanel, randomness ruled: The spring/summer 2008 ready-to-wear shows at Paris Fashion Week brought out the trendsetting ways of Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. A fanny pack for your ankle? We love it. And of course their signature stenciled tennis racquet makes an appearance. See a review here, and the complete collection here. (style.com)

Sale #1: The Polo Ralph Lauren Tennis collection (including their goods from the U.S. Open) are 30% off through Thursday, October 11. Free shipping if you spend more than $195. See the coupon here.

To the men in Los Angeles: We finally get noticed by the Nike store at the Grove, who’ll start selling guy’s goods on October 12.

Sale #2: And if blowing your load at Nike wasn’t enough, the Lacoste shops are having a sale ’til October 14. $25 off a purchase of $150 or more.

Supporting the locally-grown: I’m all about What’s All the Racquet tracking down the smaller tennis apparel companies, like Lily’s of Beverly Hills. Their Bella Donna line shows promise, but everything else is pretty blah. I’ll take my adidas by Stella McCartney any day.

It’s never too early: The baby might still be years from swinging a racquet, but you can infuse it with tennis energy with these fun socks.
