flashback: nole’s bubblegum performance

September 9, 2008

Nole‘s snarky interview aside, the Serbian gets some props for infusing some new style and color into what was becoming a very monotonous (monochromous?) men’s tennis performance collection at adidas.

Jim Courier with a honey.

Plenty more: See who was at Arthur Ashe Stadium to watch Roger Federer beat Andy Murray at the 2008 U.S. Open finals, all after the cut…

roger’s on top of the world

September 9, 2008

Roger Federer took his fifth U.S. Open trophy up to the Empire State Building’s exclusive 103rd floor — the highest point in Manhattan. (The 102nd floor is an observatory available to the public.)

Roger later went down to the 86th Floor Observatory to sign some autographs and take in the views.

the ultimate u.s. open mishit

September 9, 2008

Attack of the killer bluetooth(ish) headsets: Kudos to Amex for enhancing the U.S. Open experience by providing mini-TVs (which you had to return) and radios (for keeps) to their cardholders; because unless you had a text-proficient posse roaming the grounds, it was hard to know when juicy matches were playing out, even just a few courts away. The radio also streamed commentary from CBS’ and USA’s coverage of the tournament.

The one downside: the leash on those radios. Not even the beautiful Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend could save it from looking totally ridiculous. Loose, wrinkled strips of white fabric dangled from ears everywhere I turned. Function over fashion, perhaps, but rip the strap of that radio as soon as humanly possible. Gnaw at it if you have to.
