oh, mirka!

September 10, 2010

Here’s Mirka Federer sitting with Gwen Stefani while watching hubby the fourth round between her hubby Roger and TSF bathroom buddy (and bartender!) Jurgen Melzer. Gwen looks fab as always, with the houndstooth pants and those lime green nails (which match Caro‘s adidas by Stella McCartney dress!).

Fashion Week: For those interested, L.A.M.B. will be presenting its Spring/Sumer 2011 collection on Sept. 16 as part of New York Fashion Week. View the full schedule here.

oh, mirka!

June 27, 2010

Tennis wives …and girlfriend: As we move into the second week, the roster of glam wives and gfs are still intact, with Mirka Vavrinec, Kim Sears, Bec Hewitt, and Brooklyn Decker rooting for their respective men.

Hewitt still in it: We were convinced that the grueling match between Lleyton Hewitt and Gael Monfils resulted in an upset (yes, we are that cynical), but the 15th-seed (and former champ) won in three sets and will face Nole Djokovic in the fourth round.

Mirka recycles: On Mirka’s an old-school shoulder bag from Louis Vuitton‘s Antigua collection. Husband Federer barely broke a sweat against Nono Clement. He next plays 2010 French Open semifinalist Jurgen Melzer.

Brooklyn relaxes: Mrs. Roddick already has her major title of 2010 in the bag, so now it’s Andy’s turn to produce. He’s up against the sleeper Taiwanese player Yen-Hsun Lu in the round of 16.

Kim steps up: With all eyes on her boyfriend (even the Queen!), Sears has done a good job of mixing up her outfits worn to watch Murray play: off-the-shoulder black for the warm-up against Jan Hajek; a floral print dress for the second round against Nieminen; a big colorful necklace for the third-rounder with Gilles Simon.

Draw: See the 2010 Wimbledon Men’s Singles Draw here.

short balls: thoughts from miami

April 6, 2010

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Now we are seeing where Jada gets that hair. We were starting to wonder a little… (WTA photo via web site)

The past couple weeks were full of tennis glamour in Miami, and Andy Roddick and Kim Clijsters came away from the beaches of Florida with smiles on their faces as they won big-time titles in impressive fashion. We’ve got to hand it to Roddick for continuing to change his game and try to break the top crop of the ATP Tour. Wimbledon 2009 may not have been his final stand in a Major. We’ll stay tuned.

Measuring Beauty: A New York Times article out yesterday touched on feminine beauty taking on a new role as Baylor star basketball player Brittney Griner becomes a household name. Griner stands 6 feet, 8 inches, and has had her sexuality – and gender identity – questioned. But even Stella McCartney insiders recognized her unique look as gorgeous, the article says.

Oh-des-don’t! Things are looking rather bleak for Wayne Odesnik’s tennis future after news broke that vials of human growth hormones were found in his luggage in Australia. Want the full story? Bonnie D. Ford has a tremendous summary here, complete with quotes from other American players. Wondering why Odes is still playing in Houston this week? The charges against him are being investigated and no formal ATP rulings have been made.

Robson, Mississippi: A few hundred miles away from Wayne-mania in Houston, Britain’s Laura Robson is playing in her first event since making the junior final at the Australian Open. Robson joins top-seeded American Lindsay Lee-Waters and second seed Julia Cohen in Jackson, Mississippi for the 25K ITF circuit event.

An unexpected Miami trio and more after the cut. (more…)

sunday survey: who are your picks to win in key biscayne?

We all know who Anna Wintour (yes, wearing sunglasses during the evening session) and Mirka are rooting for to win in Florida. But who are your picks? Let us know in the comments section.

tit for tat: federer at armani

September 24, 2009


Which dress will Mama Mirka wear?

Anna Wintour was flanked by Roger Federer and Mirka Vavrinec as she walked into the Giorgio Armani Spring 2010 show in Milan. The trio sat front row (of course!); so did Janet Jackson.

“Giorgio is a real class act,” Federer told FWD‘s Valentine Uhovski after the show. “He’s just a legend. We didn’t expect the show to be such a spectacle but I had a week off, so why not? And Giorgio saw me play my country, now I’m in his.”

oh, mirka!

June 4, 2009

All smiles: Lovely shades, dear. If I had a rock like yours, I’d shield my eyes just like how you’re doing.

Phew: Now that Rafa Nadal has fallen to Robin Soderling, Mirka can get a proper manicure — she won’t be bitin’ on those fingernails for the rest of the week! Another pic of Mirka Vavrinec, aka Mrs. Roger Federer, taking in her hubby’s run for a title at the French Open, after the cut…

oh, mirka!

March 18, 2009

Here’s Gwen Stefani with son Zuma (in his Burberry check bloomers, of course) sitting next to Mirka Vavrinec during Roger Federer‘s fourth round match vs. Gonzalez at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.

Be patient, Mirks — you’ll have your own baby soon enough! By the way, TSF’s been wondering: will you be picking up a Silver Cross (though be careful, you might end up mired in a legal mess), or is Marc Jacobs already working on your monogrammed Louis Vuitton baby carriage?

Another pic of Gwen and Zuma here.

oh, mirka!

February 26, 2009

In the two weeks following the Novotnazation of Roger Federer at the Australian Open, much was said about men, sports, and crying. But little ink was spilled about Mirka, hand gestures, and screen caps.

Good thing Nick McCarvel is up to the task (if only because he knows what it’s like to get freeze-framed):

“Oh god Roger, what now?!? What’s killing you? Usually he saves the waterworks for bed. ‘It’s killing you’? It’s killing you’?! What’s killing me is that I have to sit here for another five minutes while you “compose” himself. But that’s what Twitter is for. ‘@mirka: I want a donut.’

mirka-vavrinec-aussie09a

She’s no Serena: Unlike Serena Williams, second lady Mirka Vavrinec isn’t ready to downgrade just quite yet. Here she is toting a Louis Vuitton Shimmer Comete while watching her boo Roger Federer rub out Juan Martin del Potro in an embarassing 80-minute quarterfinal match. Del Potro, the 20-year-old Argentine, won only only 14 points total in the second and third sets.

“The last couple of games [were] not that much fun,” Federer said after the match. “You want to almost put him out of his misery because you know how tough it is for him to come back.”

This 6-3, 6-0, 6-0 performance brushes off any doubt that Federer is ready to face Andy Roddick in the semis. (Roger flubbed his previous match, needing almost 3.5 hours — and five sets — to take down Tomas Berdych.)

oh, mirka! how soon will wedding bells ring?

October 7, 2008

Perhaps the recent wedding attended by Roger Federer and Mirka Vavrinec — that of Roger’s childhood friend Reto Staubli in Mallorca — are getting tennis’ first (second?) couple thinking about walking down the aisle?

After a seesaw 2008 that started with mono and bookended by a fifth U.S. Open title, the world No. 2 has withdrawn from this week’s ATP tour stop in Stockholm.

“In order to [remain at the top of the game], I need to get a proper rest and get strong again so that I am 100% fit for the remainder of the year or next year,” he told the press. “At this point, I am not sure when I will be ready to play again, but I hope to be back at some point before the end of the year.”

With Rafa Nadal also declining to play, this leaves the tourney with seventh-ranked David Nalbandian as the top seed.

So now that Roger’s scaling back tennis, he’s back in Dubai browsing jewelry with Mirka at the Atlantis resort in the Palm Jumeirah. Items considered: a 60-carat D Flawless diamond ring and a more modest 15-carat pink cushion-cut.

I can’t wait to see what they end up with…

“overheard” at the wimbledon final

July 9, 2008

I cracked up reading what the ladies at DISGRASIAN™ thought happened in Roger Federer‘s player’s box during his 4-6, 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (10-8), 7-9 loss to Rafael Nadal at this year’s Wimbledon final.

MIRKA: O-kay. Time to regroup.

GAVIN: Bummer. I can’t believe my boy lost.

GWEN: Dude. I thought Roger was supposed to be, like, hella good.

MIRKA: There’s always the U.S. Open. No need to panic. (beat) Fuck. I need a donut.

GAVIN: Hey, look! Messages on my BlackBerry! I wonder who called. This could be exciting.

GWEN: Oh shit, I feel a fart coming on.

(Read the rest here.)

oh, mirka!

July 5, 2008

Mirka Vavrinec hangs out with besties Gavin Rossdale and the pregnant Gwen Stefani during her boyfriend’s semifinal match against Marat Safin on Friday.

Looking forward: Roger will overcome the mental hurdle that is his losing streak against Rafa Nadal and win his sixth Wimbledon title. This “Roger is over” talk is all bunk.

fashion focus: roger (with a g) at de la renta

September 11, 2007

Roger with a ‘G’* was clearly the talk of 583 Park Avenue, a decommissioned Georgian church which was the site of Oscar de la Renta‘s Spring 2008 show.

But as soon as The Polyphonic Spree started playing and the models made their way down the catwalk, the audience turned their attention away from the tennis star and towards the beautiful collection from Mr. de la Renta. Both the day wear and evening gowns were awesome.

Look-see: The whole collection, via style.com.

Roll call: Other sightings include Roger’s girlfriend, Mirka Vavrinec; Amanda Peet; and the bobbleheads of Anna Wintour and Victoria Beckham.

watching the men’s semis: nole + ferrer, roger + kolya

September 8, 2007

Congrats to Novak Djokovic for downing David Ferrer in three easy sets — 6-4, 6-4, 6-3; and to Roger Federer for beating Nikolay Davydenko (le sigh) after a seesaw third set that saw a million breaks of serve (7-5, 6-1, 7-5).

A few things I noticed while I watched these U.S. Open men’s semis with Chris and Matt:

  • Using the ball bounce as a beat was great sound for the opening montage of CBS‘ coverage.
  • We laughed out loud at the Tina Fey AmEx commercial. It was like a short episode of 30 Rock! “No, the other kind of german shepherd!”
  • Srdjan Djokovic takes off his shirt after his son Nole does so after his win. And the father encourages the rest of the Djokovic box to do so. Uhm, NO.
  • Apparently Justin Gimelstob was talking about Tommy Haas‘ nipples on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
  • As of 3-2 in the first set, CBS had not panned to Mirka, nor had the commentators Dick Enberg, John McEnroe, and Mary Carillo made any mention of R-Fed besty Tiger Woods.
  • We were fans of Ferrer’s multiple necklace charms, as well as Davydenko’s wedding-ring-on-the-neck. Kolya’s hot wife, Irina, was there to cheer him on. As was his brother and coach, Eduard (also wearing Airness).
  • Celebs in the stands: Catherine Zeta-Jones, plus Kirk and Michael Douglas. Also Robert De Niro, Ilie Nastase, Boris Becker, and Anna Wintour.
  • Nevermind. The Mirka sighting was at 3-3 in the first set.
  • And comparison to Tiger in the eighth game.
  • Kolya, in all his matches at this year’s Open, was never scheduled for a night match. Is this what being the fourth seed affords a player?
  • As Enberg waxed nostalgic over the last two weeks, he mentions that Jankovic has recently been signed to endorse toothpaste.
  • Speaking of Dick (dick?), did he really say something — at two different occasions, even — about Roger’s back muscles? He was in awe of Federer’s “two ridges…” Whaa?

i’m not one to stalk roger federer….

September 6, 2007

But if you are, take this tip from Hotel Chatter:

“For Four Seasons (hotel) employees this is quite a shock. We hear that Swiss tennis god Roger always stays at Four Seasons but this time people kept recommending The Carlyle (maybe Anna had a hand in this too?) So he switched his reservation and is staying on the same floor as the hotel’s general manager, James McBride, who has an apartment there. Now, Anna knows where to get an extra key.”

The hotel’s in the Upper East Side at 35 East 76th Street. Not sure what alias Roger (and girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec) registered under…
