Eccentric American Vince Spadea is still in the running for an Australian Open title. He reached the third round by taking out Denis Gremelmayr in five sets: 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 2-6, 9-7. Spadea took out 30th seed Radek Stepanek in the first round.
Prince charmed him: Vince is cleaning up after all! He recently signed a sponsorship contract with Prince, which, along with a racquet deal, gives him official Prince tennis clothing to wear at ATP Tour events.
Le sad. We cringed at the sight of those (bedazzled) trucker hats from his own line, but they had a place at the table.
Going 2.0: “The Vindawg” has embraced the web full-on. Watch YouTube videos of his rapping (but really, more like spoken word). And now that I think about it, I hope his homepage layout doesn’t change. At this point, it’s so outdated that it’s hip again!
Buy: If you’re not in America right now, you probably still have money to spend. Browse the latest Prince goods here. Enjoy.
