if it’s good enough for michelle obama…

May 21, 2009

Jelena Jankovic moved away from the baby doll dresses she and clothing sponsor ANTA dreamed up for the beginning of 2009, choosing Miami as the event to debut this faux one-shoulder kit (hey, if it’s good enough for Michelle Obama, it’s good enough for Ms. Jankovic!).

Jelena crashed out of that tournament, unfortunately (losing to Gisela Dulko in the second round after a bye), but she bounced back the week after with a title win at the Andalucia Tennis Experience. Following that, she had three quarterfinal losses at Stuttgart, Roma, and Madrid.

What’s in store for Paris? We here at TSF eagerly await what she’ll wear while playing on the terre battue of Roland Garros (which begins next week). Judging from her choices so far, I don’t think she’ll disappoint…

tk(swiss)o: masha loses to alona in warsaw

May 21, 2009

They smell blood: Former World No. 1 Maria Sharapova lost in the quartefinals of the Warsaw Open to Alona Bondarenko, ending the Russian’s first bid at a singles title since August of last year.

Props to Alona for dictating play and stepping up for this 6-2, 6-2 victory. Sharapova put in 78% of her first serves, but they were much weaker because of lack of match play (and a bum shoulder).

Eggs in a cushy basket: We all scratched our heads when K-Swiss decided on Ukranian Bondarenko as the postergirl for their tennis attire, but it looks like it’s paying off. She’s received her fair share of photo time with wins over Kuznetsova and Chakvetadze in Madrid and now Masha in Warsaw.

A look at the items she’s worn from the K-Swiss Spring and Summer 7.0 Groups after the cut…
