trophy watch: cincinnati and toronto

August 19, 2007

Crystal, crystal, and more crystal for this week’s trophies (and for most of the U.S. Open Series so far)…

Roger Federer defeats James Blake in Cincinnati and goes home with the usual Masters Series paperweight/doorstop.

Stat: At 26 years old, Roger is the fifth youngest player to win 50 career singles titles. (Borg set the record at 23 years, 7 months. Jimmy Connors was 4 months older when he got to fifty. John McEnroe and Ivan Lendl were 25 when they won the 50th singles title. And this woman is still single.)

At the Rogers Cup in Toronto, Justine Henin takes the title in two tight sets over Jelena Jankovic in singles and the doubles team of Katarina Srebotnik and Ai Sugiyama beats Cara Black and Liezel Huber.

That girl must be one of the more obnoxious fans Roger Federer has dealt with while signing autographs. If she’s hardcore enough to dangle that shirt in front of him, you know she’s at least heard about Mirka

FYI: Roger beat James Blake 6-1, 6-4 in the finals of the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters tourney for his 50th career singles title.

svetlana’s latest fashion move

August 19, 2007

Svetlana makes a bold style statement at this week’s Rogers Cup ladies’ tournament in Toronto. Thank god she stayed away from her hair, instead choosing to wear this Fila outfit above.

Like DTL, we love the stripe detail (in retro colors) on the back of the shirt. We also love the thick gold necklace which complements her blue skirt.

Our only problem? Fila needs to work on clothes that hide her sweat marks because, as Samantha Jones would say, “this is unappetizing.”
