in slovenia, golovin earns her stripes


Frenchwoman Tatiana Golovin has had a lackluster summer and fall so far — she’s still feeling the effects of that horrible ’06 ankle injury, I imagine — but she’s definitely earned her stripes at this week’s Slovenia Open, where she’ll face Katarina Srebotnik in the finals after beating Vera Dushevina 7-6 (5), 6-2.

Tati’s wearing a striped tank from her clothing sponsor, Lacoste, who (as we know) doesn’t shy away from that pattern. They put a blue version of it on Camille Pin earlier this year, and of course we can’t forget the crazy candy shirt Fabrice Santoro wore in his match against Blake at the Open.

We’re glad to see that she’s replaced the crazy bracelets with a more utilitarian two-colored sweatband.

Good luck tomorrow, Tati!
