I won’t turn down a facial from james blake!


First, some bits:

  • Saw Juan Martin del Potro up close and personal playing doubles with munchkin partner Fabio Fognini.
  • James Blake, who along with Frank Dancevic is a spokesguy for Evian, designed a facial spray bottle (“Brumisateur”) that’ll be sold throughout the U.S. Open Series. Pick it up at evian.com for $5.50.
  • Maria Sharapova is leaving the athlete haven that is Manhattan Beach for the much more celeb-appropriate Topanga Canyon.

Donald Young‘s white Nike Advantage Polo. See the subtle detail in the mesh backing. The 19-year-old took out Tommy Haas 6-2, 6-4 in the first night match.

Papparazi moved into the seats right behind me not during a changeover (boo) but waited until the changeover (yay) to start snapping pics of Kate Hudson, who sat next to Haas’ gf Sara Foster. Look at that bracelet!

Tommy had no less than three K-Swiss shirt changes, treating us to white/black and navy blue crewnecks plus a navy blue polo during the last game of the match.

Switcheroo: In case you didn’t notice — I didn’t until last night! — Xavier Malisse switched from K-Swiss to Lotto prior to Wimbledon. He wore the black Kontact tee with shiny screenprint against Carlos Moya. The Belgian had a shiny ring on his left middle finger to match.

    Hi there! Great post and great photos. Thanks for the link, too. I didn’t stay for the Haas match but did catch the del Potro Fognini doubles. Fognini was so smiley! After every point he was grinning like he just won the lottery – it was fun to see and one of the reasons I think watching doubles live is so great. Also, do you think Fognini is short or Juan is just really tall?

    del Potro is just way tall.

    does it look like he has a tattoo on his abdomen?
