live blogging: everything but the tennis

January 31, 2010

TSF is up early (late?!) with you to watch the epic final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer Down Under. While we’ll be captivated by what’s sure to be high-quality tennis, we’ll be updating you with all our thoughts of apparel choices, activities in the crowd, failed Hawk Eye challenges and (one can hope) all the drama that ensues in a men’s major final.

7:31 PM, Melbourne: Could Murray look more serious walking out onto the court? We think that’s a good thing, especially since he’s been called ‘too passive’ in the big moments. And it looks like Serena has lent Roger one of her bags. Don’t you love the Fed bringing the metro to the court?! We do.

7:45 PM, Federer 1-0: The Times of London’s Neil Harman is sporting quite the sweater over the shoulders in his interview with Mary Joe. It looks looks a little more baby blue (read: “Federer”) than blue blue (read: “Murray”). Trader.

8:05 PM, Federer 3-2: These boys have seemingly already run three miles each on the court, and we’ve only played five games. It seems to be neck-and-neck in the Who-Can-Sweat-Through-Their-Shirt-First Competition. We might be in for a record in outfit changes. Don’t mind that.

8:16 PM, Federer 4-3: Chris Fowler confirms that Federer is first to change his shirt, “seven games in”. Chris must be reading TSF. Love ya and your sexy face, Fowlies.

8:44 PM, Federer 6-3, 3-2: We thought that Andy changing into the white shirt was a sign of surrender, but the Scot actually breathed a little life into his game with that last hold. We’re still waiting for a big-time fist pump, but don’t mind the camera flashes to Murray’s box over Federer’s. (more…)

2009 holiday gift guide

December 11, 2009

While the tennis season is fully wrapped (and the exhibition season in full swing), TSF is ready to take a break for the holiday season. But before we do, it’s more than necessary to point out a few items (and looks) that you must take a peek at for the holidays. It’s our 2009 Holiday Gift Guide, and we hope you enjoy it…

First off is the Barricade L3 tennis racquet (and bag!) from adidas. That’s right, adidas. If you love to be matching in all things, then pick up this combo (in stores or online for $185) so that you can sport the adidas stripes throughout your entire game. As for adidas tennis balls, those still don’t exist. DIY, here you come.

While we love the chic look of the adidas racquet and bag, nothing beats the tennis fashion of Polo Ralph Lauren this holiday season. While the brand may not have a tennis pro to flaunt their pretty product around the globe, tennis fashion expert Dana Mason calls the fall/winter line her best seller in the store.

“I love navy and there’s a lot of that in this line. The dresses are very fitted and short with a deep v-neck,” Mason explains. “It’s all perfect for winter vacationing.”

Two of our winter faves are the Tonal Diagonal Stripe Polo (pictured below), which is on sale online right now for just $49 and the Ralph Lauren Matchpoint Dress, with much inspiration from the US Open line in which Polo took ball boy/girl (and lines person) fashion to new heights. (Dress can be seen after the cut).
