lacoste standard issue: the women pull ahead


We’re always eagerly anticipating the standard issues that Lacoste doles out for each Grand Slam, and the ones for Roland Garros turned out just fine — at least for the ladies.

Gisela Dulko wore the halter from the Fine Stripe line in her loss to Alize Cornet in the second round. Cornet, the 19th seed, also wore the tank but spaghetti-strap style; she lost to Agnieszka Radwanska in the round after.

Buy: Fine Striped Tennis Halter, $68.

Mathilde Johansson faced Serena Williams in the second round. She wore the Racerback Tennis Dress with detachable flower, $145. Meanwhile, Petra Cetkovska (middle and right) put on a layer when it got a little chilly.

And Mike Frey over at Tennishead continues to help out TSF with this photo of this player (can anyone help me out with a name?) wearing the polo.

Unlike the 2007 French Open, which saw Lacoste give their male sponsors the cutest orange and white polos, 2008 was way bland. Michael Llodra and Jeremy Chardy — as delicious as they are — couldn’t quite bring this Heritage Check Print Polo to life. (If you want to grab the jacket, it’s still available at

As usual, Arnaud Clement and Fabrice Santoro are off doing their own things.

    It think that the female player in the Lacoste polo is Selima Sfar of Tunesia(who was beaten by Venus)…

  2. Back Fence Says:

    I think the missing ID is Spain’s Virginia Ruano Pascual. I could be wrong though. I usually am.

  3. Back Fence Says:

    And Petra Cetkovska is my new favourite player.

  4. Charles Says:

    I also think that Ruano-Pascual is the lady wearing the Lacoste polo…

  5. Emily Says:

    I think that it is Nathalie Dechy.

  6. Javier Says:

    I must agree with Mr. Backfence and Charles. It’s definitely Virginia Ruano, from Madrid, Spain; she’s quite a doubles specialist, not really favoured in this pic, I’m afraid.
