serena waisting (and not wasting) time

January 14, 2010

Leave it to Serena to take it to the next level; even with the fashion-heavy Aravane Rezai across the net — the frenchwoman deserves her own post — TSF was still wowed by the belly chain accent on Ms. Williams’ red Nike outfit (what if it got caught on that ring?!). And kudos to that Hello Kitty receipt bag (from Venus) she had in her purse at the AO preview presser.

She has earned the Australian Open’s top seeding on the women’s side (just released), and is efficiently prepping for the year’s first major by extending her winning streak in Sydney. Serena has a chance to take the title from defending champion Elena Dementieva. In the semis, Serena needed three sets to beat Rezai while Dementieva brushed aside Azarenka in two quick sets.

…this is what they’d spawn. (La Monf or Grigor Dimitrov could be in the picture, too, with equal results!) Nick Lindahl, an Australian up-and-comer, has snagged a wildcard spot at this year’s Australian Open with a hard-earned win — 6-7 (6), 6-1, 4-6, 7-6 (8), 6-3 — over Bernard Tomic.

for ana, it’s back to the basics

January 14, 2010

While most players start the year clad in bright colors and popping looks on the practice courts of the Australian Open in Melbourne, Ana Ivanovic was warming up for the year’s first slam today in a simple black-and-white get up from adidas. The Serbian, who is trying to take her game back to the basics after a dismal 2009, will sport this yellow dress for the tournament’s play. We’ve got to say we love her toned-down practice apparel.

What are your thoughts on her dress? Get a peek at it after the jump or click the link above. (more…)
