tattoo watch: bolelli’s twofer

March 2, 2009

FYI, Simone Bolelli got his left forearm marked up (to go along with another new tattoo and his long-standing “S“).

Unconfirmed post at MTF says it’s his girlfriend’s name. Can anyone back it up?

Scoreline: At this week’s Barclays Dubai Championships in Dubai, Simone lost in straight sets to Richard Gasquet in the second round.

tattoo watch: bolelli’s tramp stamp

February 26, 2009

Tattoo watch: One of our favorite Italian stallions, Simone Bolelli, was clearly busy during the off-season. And in case ya don’t believe him, he’s got the tats to prove it.

More: See the tattoo (and a few more shirtless pics) — all from this year’s Medibank International tourney in Sydney — after the cut…

fashion focus: lotto goes back to its roots

July 4, 2008

Lotto takes advantage of the Italian flag palette for its Wimbledon men’s gear. Red and green stripes adorn the shirts, shorts, and wristbands of Simone Bolelli, David Ferrer, and Juan Carlos Ferrero. Same goes for the shoes.

Juanqui wears the crewneck version of the tee, and joins the land of the double-wide wristband with his own slapdash version…

Ferrer adds a bandana to his outfit.

Meanwhile, Simone went with the polo version. Look at his jewelry!

shoes: the next frontier + novak’s nike switch

July 4, 2008

Venus Williams and her less-than-$20 shoes have a place in the finals tomorrow. The four-time (and defending champ) took out the grumpy (and possibly misinterpreted) Elena Dementieva in the semis.

No chances for a mix-up over at Fila, who marked Sveta Kuznetsova and Dmitry Tursunov‘s shoes this week.

And here’s a look at those Alfas designed by Fila especially for Wimbledon court staff.

While Nike gets top honors for its design of Roger Federer‘s shoes, we have to point out these Lotto kicks customized for Simone Bolelli. Notice the “Bole” (his nickname) incorporated into the shoe. The designers at Fila need to go in this direction…

Shahar Peer and Reebok bring back the Israeli flag, seen here in her match against Dinara Safina.

Andy Murray playing in Nike against Ricky Gasquet of France.

Much ado about Nike: Our buddy Darren Rovell at CNBC wrote about Novak Djokovic‘s silent switch in tennis shoes from adidas to Nike Air Max Breathe Cage IIs at this year’s Championships. Nole did a fine job white out the swooshes on his shoe.

Here’s a photo of the grass court shoe he wore the week prior at The Artois Championships in London (he lost to Rafa Nadal in the finals). He apparently slipped and slid too much and decided to give Nike a try…

bec hewitt stands by her man

June 30, 2008

I root for Lleyton Hewitt during the grass court season because he’s pretty darn good on that surface. Another reason is that his wife, Bec Hewitt, looks pretty darn good sitting in the stands!

Lleyton’s Yonex kit, though, needs a makeover, stat. Those mini-rays of color bursting from the torso has had its run…

Now that the Australian has dropped out of the draw (a noble effort against Roger Federer), let’s review Bec’s ensembles from the grass season.

Bec watching Lleyton play at The Artois Championships in the Queen’s Club in London, where her husband is a four-time champion. (That “L” necklace is deelish!)

She wears a baby doll dress (with keyhole) during Lleyton’s marathon first-round match against Robin Haase: 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (1), 6-2.

She switches to a jumper dress for the second round win against Albert Montanes: 7-6 (4), 6-0, 6-2.

And horizontal texture makes a showing in Lleyton’s 6-1, 6-3, 7-6 (2) victory over Bolelli in the third round.

And finally, Bec wears red during Lleyton’s final match of Wimbledon 2008 — the fourth round loss to R-Fed: 6-7 (7), 2-6, 4-6.

Tattoo watch: “S” is for…?

May 3, 2008

Simone Bolelli - Munich Open 2008

Italian Simone Bolelli took out top seed Paul-Henri Mathieu in the semifinals of the 2008 BMW Open in Munich with a 7-6 (1), 4-6, 7-6 (4) win.

Tattoo watch: He gave us a little peek into the gigantic gothic “S” inked on his upper right arm — just enough to make us want to see the whole thing!

Kudos, pt. 2: The man can teach a lecture at the next ATP University on how to be a professional tennis player… and have amazing hair while doing it.

Browse: He recently launched an official website; you can take a look at it here. The current version is only in Italian.

(Thanks, Saum!)
