tsf talks: aussie round-up

January 31, 2010

I know our readers were a little sick of seeing my face doing Aussie Open updates, so the TSF boys put our heads together and decided to do a roundtable discussion wrapping up the year’s first Slam. Sadly, Erwin had some technical difficulties, so Troy and I ended up chatting about everything from Venus’ undies to Jelena’s issues at 35,000 feet. Check out our TSF podcast by clicking the link below. It takes just a couple minutes to download to your iTunes and we promise your listening pleasure. -N

Aussie Open Round-Up featuring Nick McCarvel and Troy Venechanos: TSF Feb 10 Podcast

Tennis’ favorite Keebler elf was helping out with the Roger/Andy match. Here’s hoping that neither throats nor balls become collateral damage this time around.

Sightings in the stands: I think it’s about time at that adidas take the DIY out of these Muzzhead shirts and sell ‘em (in four packs, even!) the same way that Fila has J-Block merch and Nike has those Roger and Rafa tees.

With the way this match is going so far, it looks like I’ll be in bed by 2:15am (prove me wrong, Andy?). Meanwhile, a shot of Roger’s Aussie Open shoes. Those red dots represent the three titles he’s won in Melbourne so far.

Enric Molina, lovechild of Justin Gimelstob and Marcos Baghdatis, is officiating the 2010 Aussie Open men’s final between Federer and Murray.

As expected, Roger walked onto the court in his Nike kit (without a warm-up jacket) with a white and blue version of his custom gym bag. Loves.

team andy or team roger?

We’re hoping it’ll go to Andy in five, but it’ll go to Roger in four… Let’s just hope it doesn’t fizzle out like the final set of that Justine/Serena match!

live blogging: everything but the tennis

January 31, 2010

TSF is up early (late?!) with you to watch the epic final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer Down Under. While we’ll be captivated by what’s sure to be high-quality tennis, we’ll be updating you with all our thoughts of apparel choices, activities in the crowd, failed Hawk Eye challenges and (one can hope) all the drama that ensues in a men’s major final.

7:31 PM, Melbourne: Could Murray look more serious walking out onto the court? We think that’s a good thing, especially since he’s been called ‘too passive’ in the big moments. And it looks like Serena has lent Roger one of her bags. Don’t you love the Fed bringing the metro to the court?! We do.

7:45 PM, Federer 1-0: The Times of London’s Neil Harman is sporting quite the sweater over the shoulders in his interview with Mary Joe. It looks looks a little more baby blue (read: “Federer”) than blue blue (read: “Murray”). Trader.

8:05 PM, Federer 3-2: These boys have seemingly already run three miles each on the court, and we’ve only played five games. It seems to be neck-and-neck in the Who-Can-Sweat-Through-Their-Shirt-First Competition. We might be in for a record in outfit changes. Don’t mind that.

8:16 PM, Federer 4-3: Chris Fowler confirms that Federer is first to change his shirt, “seven games in”. Chris must be reading TSF. Love ya and your sexy face, Fowlies.

8:44 PM, Federer 6-3, 3-2: We thought that Andy changing into the white shirt was a sign of surrender, but the Scot actually breathed a little life into his game with that last hold. We’re still waiting for a big-time fist pump, but don’t mind the camera flashes to Murray’s box over Federer’s. (more…)
