mama’s girls

May 6, 2011

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, TSF asked a few of the ladies on the WTA tour what their plans are for the special day. Monica Niculescu, Anabel Medina Garrigues, Johanna Larsson, and Casey Dellacqua chimed in — these gals are adorable! — so read their responses after the cut…

where’s nono?

Seeing this bandana on Johanna Larsson (and viewing pics of Nenad Zimonjic playing with pocket-sized furry creatures at the Belgrade Zoo) made us wonder: where the eff is Arnaud Clement? We miss you! We really do.

Estoril: Onto more important things, like tennis! Larsson lost her semifinal match at the Estoril Open to Kristina Barrois, who will face Anabel Medina Garrigues for the title. And mazel to Barrois for breaking into the top 70 (when rankings are released on Monday). Draw: Estoril Open Women’s Singles.

BTW: can anyone ID Johanna’s ruffly black tank?

trophy watch: golubev propelled, chakvetadze returns, goerges’s first, fish extends streak

July 26, 2010

Andrey Golubev has made history by being the first player from Kazakhstan to win a title. He upset the 15th-ranked (and 2010 Roland Garros semifinalist) Jurgen Melzer 6-3, 7-5 in the final of the German Open in Hamburg.

The thirty pounds Mardy Fish lost in the last year certainly came in handy in winning the Atlanta Tennis Championships final against marathon man John Isner. The score: 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4). Props to him for upsetting top seed Andy Roddick in the semis and overcoming local fave Robby Ginepri in the second round. Fish also won last week’s HoF tourney in Newport — he’s looking good for the Open!

Chakky’s baaack! Former top-fiver Anna Chakvetadze bagged her first title since 2008 by taking out Sweden’s Johanna Larsson 6-1, 6-2 in the final of the Slovenia Open.

Julia Goerges beat Timea Bacsinszky 6-1, 6-4 to win her first career singles title at the Gastein Ladies in Austria. Goerges has had a good couple of weeks; she also made it to the semis of the Palermo tournament before losing to top seed Pennetta.
