who’s that tall guy?

August 4, 2007

We here at Tennis Served Fresh always get a little verklempt everytime we hear a breakthrough story. Yes, we felt that way even about Alexandra Stevenson before her craziness bubbled to the surface. The latest subject is 6’9″ North Carolinian John Isner, who helped University of Georgia nab the NCAA Men’s Team Championships in 2007.


Just look at those bushy, Gyllenhaal-esque brows.

This week he is tearing through the draw at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic, where he faces Andy Roddick in tomorrow’s final.

John was a basketball player until his sophomore year of high school (I’m sure Tim Henman and Gael Monfils are doubly sad losing to a late bloomer).

He also has a very very confident and supportive mother. God bless her cynical soul.

Andy’s Lacoste hat: Number one American (and fast food grubber) Andy Roddick has his fans hunting all over the country for his Lacoste hat and other gear. A gaggle of them at Talk Tennis figured out that a shipment of the AR collection will hit stores this month. (Tip: If you can’t find it on the Lacoste website, call a store. It’s surprisingly hassle-free to get items shipped to you.)


Keeping it simple: The seesaw year of Maria Sharapova continues at the Acura Classic, where she appeared under the lights in a simple black and white Nike outfit. The layers in the upper back were secured at the neck; it wasn’t flapping in the wind like her Wimbledon dress. (Racqonteur loved it, too.) And someone needs to tell Tatiana that orange doesn’t look good on her.


Bonus round: It made me so happy to finally see the August ’07 Harper’s Bazaar, which features the Simpsonization of major labels like Viktor & Rolf, Chanel, Lanvin, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Louis Vuitton. They showed off the prints at Colette and the designers posed next to their cartoon: that’s Hottie McHotterson aka Marc Jacobs (left; designing for LV) and Karl Lagerfeld (designing for Chanel). See the rest of the HB layout here. (photo via Hypebeast)

fashion focus: fred perry fall ’07 collection

August 4, 2007

My picks from the Fred Perry men’s fall ’07 collection. They’ve played with the classic FP silhouette and pattern by using multi-tipping, reduced width collars, and horizontal/vertical stripes. Throw a v-neck sweater or cardigan over it and you’re ready to go!

I can’t stop staring at that bowl cut…
