shirtless: guillermo canas

July 30, 2011

So are we the only ones seeing more and more men wear their long hair in buns these days? Kinda loving it as a summer look…

Speaking of bun (and buns) Guillermo Canas has been popping in and out of our line of sight at this week’s Farmer’s Classic, where he’s been working with semifinalist Ernests Gulbis. The lanky Latvian booked his spot in the final four with that upset of second seed Juan Martin Del Potro 6-4, 7-6 (3), making this his first semi appearance since January in Sydney. Gulbis will play Alex Bogomolov, who staged his own upset in the Grandstand court in his quarterfinal against Thomaz Bellucci.

Stacking up: See the draws here.

guillermo-canas-forearmtat

I’ve been seeing an awful lot of forearm tattoos lately… I should take that as a sign that I should get one myself (my squid is getting lonely).

Guillermo Canas showed his off in the first round Australian Open men’s doubles match with partner Marat Safin. We hadn’t seen this one before. Hebrew script, I think. Is it new?

Nicolas Kiefer has pulled out of this year’s Australian Open because of a left ankle injury he sustained at the Hopman Cup (two weeks ago). He was to face Guillermo Canas in the first round. Instead, Canas will play German qualifier Dieter Kindlmann.

Feel better, Nicolas!

tattoo watch: name that ass back tattoo

November 1, 2008

After a few idle months, the TSF tattoo blotter got its latest entry thanks to the photography of Carlita at the Mutua Madrilena Masters in Madrid.

So, whose tat is this? Find out after the cut…

not even all the lunges in the world…

October 10, 2008

Guillermo Canas might have gotten mugged near his parents’ home in Buenos Aires last month, but his attackers left him with his best, uhm, asset.

The Argentine has switches to an orange version of his Topper kit (he was wearing black/red at the U.S. Open), playing at this week’s Bank Austria-TennisTrophy in Vienna.

Score: Canas lost to the pompadoured Fernando Verdasco in the second round 6-1, 6-2.

flashback: tennis masters cup, 2004 (houston)

September 21, 2008

I was looking for old tennis photos online, and I ran into these pictures taken of the nine guys (including the alternate) who descended upon Houston for the Tennis Masters Cup in 2004.

The Argentines: Guillermo Canas and Gaston Gaudio

The boys: Andy Roddick and Guillermo Coria

The daddies (DILFs?): Lleyton Hewitt and Tim Henman

The ILFs: Marat Safin and Carlos Moya

and Roger Federer

Roger beat Lleyton in straight sets — 6-3, 6-2 — to take his 11th title of 2004 and his second consecutive year-end title.

guillermo canas has a slow start in 2008

Guillermo Canas - Topper - Spring 08

It’s been almost a year since Guillermo Canas handed Roger Federer back-to-back tournament losses (at Indian Wells and Miami). He’s off to a much slower start in 2008, having only entered in two tournaments (Acapulco and Las Vegas) so far.

Topper, his sponsor, gets on the stripe bandwagon with this spring Sublimado crewneck. I’m waiting for an optical illusion, but I don’t think there’s one there.

party: canas for espn deportes la revista

September 1, 2007

Before the start of this year’s U.S. Open, Guillermo Canas (above, with girlfriend Fabiana Semprebon), Nicolas Lapentti, Mariano Zabaleta, and Juan Monaco were among the players in attendance at a party in Soho earlier this week to celebrate the September issue of ESPN Deportes La Revista. The issue, with Canas on the cover, notes that 16 of the ATP’s top 100 players are Latin American. (via Tennis Wire)

canas shirtless for global warming

Guillermo Canas and his girlfriend, Brazilian Fabiana Semprebon, posed for Argentinian label Ona Saez‘s latest campaign which raises awareness for global warming. Canas was happy to be chosen for the campaign, he says. And although he’s not a “green” expert, he feels that he can do his part by motivating the masses.

Here are looks from the label’s most recent collections (some Star Wars-inspired):

Do you know what’s inked on his shoulder? Tell us.

It’s on for Carson: The city adds a few more notches to its tennis belt. The Home Depot Center will host both a men’s and women’s Challenger tournaments in the early summer.

Not so fast, TTC: CBS announced that they have cut a more profitable deal with the USTA in renewing their coverage of the U.S. Open and U.S. Open series tournaments. CBS has rights through 2011. And the TTC is chugging along with its own plans of domination, offering free previews of the channel in different media markets. (via Variety and Tennis News)

canas roma 07Canas has finally arrived: The TimesNeil Harman sums up Guillermo Canasreturn to tennis elite after a 15-month doping-related suspension. Sad moment: soon after the doping scandal broke, Canas was turned away from the U.S. Open as a spectator.

After this week’s TMS Rome, the Argentinian will no longer need to play qualies. And he has no points to defend between now and September. Will he join the rest of the top 20, picking up Federer’s sloppy seconds, or will he be feasting from the Swiss rankings pie? Something tells me it’s the latter. He’s currently 3-1 against the world number one.

Local NCAA players return to Athens: Pepperdine looks to repeat as the men’s team champions, Trojan Lindsey Nelson looks to avenge her loss in last year’s final against Cardinal Suzi Babos (who Nelson beat in last month’s Pac-10 championship), and UCLA’s Benjamin Kohlloeffel will defend his men’s singles crown.

Borg’s back: After a seven-year absence, Wimbledon legend Bjorn Borg will make an appearance at this year’s tournament. He seems to have made peace with the sport after all these years. The Swede will also play the Liverpool International Tennis Tournament (an exhibition, of course) in mid-June. (via the Evening Standard)

Nole received the same bland trophy that Serena received yesterday:

and he shares a moment with Guillermo Canas after the match — their first meeting. Both walked away better off: Novak will reach a career-high No. 7 when the ATP rankings are released tomorrow. Canas’s ranking isn’t too shabby, either. He’ll be 31st (he started off the year at 143).

In Novak’s speech he said that he deserves “to be one of the three best players in the world.” If you don’t know who the third player is (besides him and Canas), you can ask the fans:

short balls: a prodigy, a renaissance, and tennis on film

The guys in charge of the scoreboard LOVE her: ESPN’s Bonnie DeSimone profiles one of the players who made noise at this year’s Sony Ericsson Open. The 14-yr-old (and Portuguese) Michelle Larcher de Brito won a third set tiebreak against journeywoman Meghan Shaughnessy in the first round and lost to Daniela Hantuchova in the second.

He has Federer’s number: In case you’re new to the scene and/or know little about giant slayer Guillermo Canas — he’s beaten Federer twice in two weeks — you should read this short column by Justin Gimelstob.

Tennis in Tribeca: American filmmaker Rob Klug premieres his documentary Unstrung at next month’s Tribeca Film Festival. From the TFF website: “Much as Spellbound did for spelling bees, Unstrung exposes the surprising dramas of the amateur tennis world, hitting the road with a handful of high school competitors as they head for the national championship.” (via All These Wonderful Things)

What happens in Vegas…: From Robin Leach’s guest blog post on Luxe Life: Murphy Jensen‘s Tennis Channel show Open Access did a segment out of Las Vegas, coinciding with last month’s Tennis Channel Open. Jensen, along with player Jaroslav Levinsky, visited magician Lance Burton backstage “for an impromptu interview and some more magic tricks. Lance Burton made Murphy disappear upon a request from Levinsky.”
