TSF was banking on Aravane Rezai to join the ranks of Nadia Petrova and Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the fashion trenches of Flushing Meadows, but the Frenchwoman instead kept with the same white armadillo Scheyda dress she’d been wearing since the start of the grasscourt season.
Still, her spirit found a way to make a mark: as we roamed the grounds of the 2010 US Open, we ran across this man who’d designed his own Rezai tee. It’s not quite the impressive as Nole fan shirts, but “A” for effort.
Meanwhile, just for posterity, here’s Rezai playing against American (and wildcard) Beatrice Capra in the second round. Capra won (the hearts of internet users, even) but got a massive spanking from Maria Sharapova in the round after.
