But we’ll gladly pass it along: Contrary to the evidence, we had nothing to do with this one.

Joe Jonas, Taylor Hanson, Marko Djokovic. It’s always about the middle brother, isn’t it?

Nick’s away for well-deserved R&R over on the left coast this weekend, so it’ll be a fashion-heavy while I’m bloggin’ by my lonesome…
Good idea: Novak Djokovic opens up another NovakCafe, the Djokovic restaurant venture. The fourth branch is located near the MGM tennis court, the site of the Djokovic-owned Serbia Open. (Pics: interior and exterior — pretty cute, no?)
View: See pics from all four outposts of Novak Cafe at the restaurant’s official website.
Marko’s looking more delicious by the minute. So is the restaurant. If only we could get Nole to stick with adidas, and not switch over to K-Swiss like he’s been rumored to?
Bad idea: Where do we sign the petition TO NOT MAKE THIS HAPPEN? Nole just began to hit his mark with his Falcon line (above) — it was one of the U.S. Open’s best outfits, along with Rafa Nadal‘s checker cab polo. (Pics: Nole’s day and night kits) He should really hang around and give it time to grow. Perhaps K-Swiss has better shoes?
On the flip side, K-Swiss will get a benefit from having a top male player on their roster. (No offense, Tommy Haas.)
Bonus round: Good Idea, Bad Idea from Animaniacs
Sightings in the stands from the 2008 Australian Open men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. After a strong first set showing by Tsonga, Nole came back to win 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (2).
Know your tennis parents: Tsonga’s parents are Didier (front right), a chemistry teacher and former international handball player from the Congo, and mother, Evelyne (front left), a schoolteacher born in France.
Meet the Djokovics: The oh-so-adorable Nole camp — Srdjan, Dijana, Marko, and Djordje — came out to support the family’s current superstar. I guess the parents’ big talk is now backed up by an Australian Open title. FYI, Marko was entered in the juniors draw but lost early. Mary Carillo said he felt snubbed that Nole didn’t watch him play. Meanwhile, everyone’s touting Djordje as the best tennis player of the bunch.
