September 14, 2007

(Update: As of July 2012 we are focusing our tennis coverage over at Tennis Now. Check us out there.)

TSF was having such a hard time finding photos of Janko Tipsarevic‘s back tattoo…

Thanks to a reader for helping us out!

TSF off this weekend

September 14, 2007

TSF will be taking a much-needed break (the U.S. Open kicked our butts!).

We know there’s a lot of stuff going on (China Open, BCR Open Romania, Bali Open, Fed Cup) but don’t worry — we will catch up by Monday.

Enjoy this next Janko post, and enjoy your weekend!

xo, tsf

for the chinese, red is good luck

Nicholas Kiefer clearly figured that out. He’s the only unseeded player to make it into the semifinals of the China Open with his 6-3, 7-5 win over Marin Cilic. He’ll next face Spaniard Tommy Robredo.

As usual, Kiefer is sporting a kit from his sponsor, Diadora.

Buy: A similar version of this Men’s Competition Crew is on sale for $36 (down from $50) at TW.

Kappa Tennis Cheering Squad Show!!!

September 14, 2007

They weren’t kidding: Above are photos from the China Open’s Kappa Tennis Cheering Squad Show — yep, that’s really what it’s called — which is a promotional tie-in with the current ATP stop in Beijing. Winners of the competition get sent to the final Beijing round of Miss World.

We’re lovin the mudflap girls on their outfits. Yay for reappropriation!

davenport beats scrunchified jankovic

September 14, 2007

There’s no question that Lindsay Davenport will have a spot in the Top 10 (Top 5, even?) if she goes back to playing as a full-time pro.

She beat a flustered Jelena Jankovic 6-4, 2-6, 6-2 in the quarters of the Bali Open.

Typical Jelena though… she gets down on herself and gets distracted too easily. But hey you don’t get to No. 3 in the world without doing something right.

Jelena wore the pink Reebok separates she brought out at the U.S. Open, but added some pearl drop earrings and A SCRUNCHY. (Reminds me of that fight Carrie had with Berger in SATC.)
