We Americans continue to get the short end of the Ellesse stick as the Italian company keeps on with its 50th anniversary this year. They’re read to roll out the fall/winter 09 collection, and it’s boosted by a campaign shot in London by Chinese photographer Kai Z. Feng. Those unfamiliar with Feng’s work should check out his portfolio. A Google Image search of his name also turns up some yummy pics.
Meanwhile, the United States is still sitting tight for Ellesse action.

Turkish No. 1 Marsel Ilhan lost to Jurgen Melzer in the second round of the PTT Bangkok Open 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-3.
As you may remember, Ilhan made his way through the 2009 U.S. Open qualifying and set a record (for first Turk to win a Grand Slam match) by beating Christophe Rochus in the first round; Ilhan then fell to John Isner in straight sets.
We chatted briefly with the 22-year-old Ilhan after that Rochus match, and learned that he was born in Uzbekistan but moved to Turkey at a young age. Ilhan’s already fluent in Russian and his working on his English (our interview was translated through his coach).
