mishit: ivo minar

June 4, 2009

For posterity’s sake: Ivo Minar wore this tart, tartan combo from TTK at this year’s French Open. He was Kudryavtseva‘d by sixth seed Andy Roddick in the second round.

Perhaps Andy was doing Minar a favor; the American knows a thing or two about crazy outfits on the court.

Full monty: See a wider shot of Ivo’s clothes after the cut…


oh, mirka!

All smiles: Lovely shades, dear. If I had a rock like yours, I’d shield my eyes just like how you’re doing.

Phew: Now that Rafa Nadal has fallen to Robin Soderling, Mirka can get a proper manicure — she won’t be bitin’ on those fingernails for the rest of the week! Another pic of Mirka Vavrinec, aka Mrs. Roger Federer, taking in her hubby’s run for a title at the French Open, after the cut…

Here’s Feliciano Lopez at last night’s opening of a restaurant called Barroque in Madrid.

You’re welcome, Kolya!

clijsters: pot calls the kettle “bland”

June 4, 2009

An excerpt from Kim Clijsters‘ interview with BBC Radio 5 Live last night:

“Over the last few months I have been watching a little more tennis and there’s a lot of girls that I really have no clue who they are. And they play really good tennis, but what I’ve noticed on TV is that a lot of them play the same type of tennis. The speed is very similar, the movement is very similar. There’s not many new players that stand out with a different type of game.”

I guess there’s room for rueing the loss of Justine Henin and Amelie Mauresmo (in her heyday), but let us remind you that this comment is coming from a woman whose wham-bam style of play was nearly indistinguishable from that of her peers and not nearly as successful — it only got her one major.

larosa’s at it again

June 4, 2009

I spent a few minutes last night as that guy, LOLing — literally — while fiddling with my pink ‘Berry on the street. The reason for my giggles? James LaRosa is back at it, blogging about Roland Garros for Tennis Channel. All the posts are archived here.

Edit: the Day 12 post has a fashion conversation between LaRosa and yours truly. Check it out!
