It’s OK to have an excuse to bring these pictures up again, right? We always love “what-if” situations, so how about a fun, imaginative one today? What if you had the option of participating in any of the below. Which would you rather?

We can only hope that this is the only picture Andy Roddick gave the photographers at the players’ party for the 2011 BNP Paribas Open. Who needs to stop for a red carpet when there’s a Kogi truck inside?

We here at TSF West are giddy about the dress adidas by stella mccartney dress Caroline Wozniacki debuted during her match today against Sloane Stephens at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif. We’d seen this ruffled number in pics and saw it (on the IW grounds) two nights ago.
Seeing it on Caro led a lot of folks to spew the snark but I beg to differ: that color’s a nice, cool shade that’ll work well through the French (similar to the blue dress Maria Sharapova wore in 2009) and all the sheer cutouts and the ruffles will come to life especially during Wimbledon’s moratorium on color. Besides, no one was complaining when Maria Kirilenko was wearing this stuff (granted, MaKiri’s match record didn’t give the outfits much airtime) and the label’s sensibility hasn’t changed. So what’s different? I think it’s the way Caro wears clothes. She doesn’t have the knack for carrying an outfit. Exhibit A.
Really, leave the ruffles alone!
Scoreline: By the way, Caro, as the top seed, moved on with a win over wildcard Sloane Stephens 6-3, 6-2. We don’t see her facing any stiff challenges until a potential meeting with eighth seed Vika Azarenka in the quarters. (Draw: Women’s Singles)

Bud Collins wasn’t the only one wowing folks with outrageous footwear. One of our first sightings on Day 4 of main draw play at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells? These throwback sneakers on Jimmy Connors.

Aside from actively tweeting and coaching Ivanovic, one of Novak Djokovic‘s newest projects is rolling out a campaign with his racquet sponsor, Head, to promote a… well, we’re not sure what it is yet. Some of Head’s past videos have been pretty good, so we’ll go ahead and bite: “NOVAK WANTS TO PLAY ON THE WINGS OF A PLANE? WHAAAAT?”
The next installment drops March 21. We’re staying tuned.
