seen around roland garros: mary pierce

A 2000 flashback: Not to be outdone by the cameo of fellow 2000 titlist Guga Kuerten, Mary Pierce also made an appearance at this year’s tourney. She stopped by the set of Tennis Channel’s French Open Tonight (with host Bill Macatee).

If you remember, both Guga and Mary showed up at last year’s singles trophy ceremonies…

red scare? more like red annoyance

May 30, 2008

TSF had concerns about Nikolay Davydenko facing Davis Cup teammate and v-neck posterboy Marat Safin in the second round of the French Open, especially after Safin dismantled Jean-Rene Lisnard in the match prior (granted, Lisnard is ranked 228th in the world). But it turned out to be a clay cakewalk for Kolya, who won 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-2.

Perhaps it was Marat’s lack of jewelry that did him in. Where are his necklaces?!

Buy: Marat’s adidas Spring Competition 6 Theme Polo in Scarlet Red, $44.99 at TennisExpress.
