I’ll start with Fierce Tennis‘ official girlcrush, Vika.
Same Wimbledon outfit but in different colours. The headband is still sexy and — if possible — even sexier in bright yellow but the top is still unflattering as hell. She should have stuck with the black long-sleeved shirt worn during warmup. THAT was looking good.
The conclusive proof headbands are soooo in.
Bethanie Mattek-Sands has one! (and lol @ the socks, I guess it could always be worse with Beth)
Fila tried to do this “old school” look for Kim Clijsters. I like the bag, the rest is… *yawn*.
Serena‘s dress is equally plain but SHOES! I love them.
And on Kiri‘s first tournament as a non-Stella girl… she still looks hot. Shocker.
Good looks: always helps when you don’t have a designer outfit.
One of my favourites: Kutuzova‘s green dress that was supposed to be worn by Sharapova at the Australian Open. Gawjuz.
Bepa Zvonareva kept it clean and simple. Very pretty as well.
I would have preferred if she wore this though. Maybe on her next match?
And to finish this, rumors say this is what Urszula Radwanska will wear on her match tomorrow:
I’d comment on Men’s fashion but everything is dull and the only thing worth mentioning is this ridiculous Adidas t-shirt worn by Mathieu. EPIC FAIL, three stripes.
18-year-old American Devin Britton (that lost to Federer earlier today) and WNBA‘s Diana Taurasi:
John Isner (that upsetted 28th seed Hanescu in straights) and gay cowboy hottie actor Jake Gyllenhaal:
Later on, this day’s fashion post!
With the US Open about to start (in exact 15 minutes, as I write this), what am I supposed to do but GOSSIP?
According to Brazilian fashion blog Fashionismo, Camilla Belle and Fernando Verdasco were spotted sharing a meal yesterday at the Rockefeller Center. This is the same Camilla, that five months ago, was getting all friendly with the attractive Spaniard. And the same one that, last month, was making tween idol Joe Jonas weep. Oh, gurl, don’t go breaking my heart.
First, I must apologize for leaving this bubblegum-coloured blog to the flies. You see, my university is back and I have to be up at unholy hours and, as it turns out, I don’t like mocking professional tennis players when I look like a zombie. What I’m doing instead is adding a FML to every sentence that comes out of my mouth. Dramatic, me? No way.
Moving on to the video that put a smile on my face today:
(American) Football Tennis in New Haven
Top ten players Flavia Pennetta and Caroline Wozniacki reimagined the Yale Dome as a giant tennis court. Which both girls apparenly saw as an opportunity to moonball. Amusing tennis players are amusing.
I just have one question, when Caro said “You hit this ball, I take you out for dinner?”, can everyone try out for that or just Flavia?
Yesterday, to the dismay of all tennis fangirls around the world, DTL reported that Maratski is getting married. According to rumors, the Russian SEXGOD will tie the knot with his fancy blowup doll girlfriend, Nastya Osipova, of pop group Blestyashchie. Now, when I read that, the band’s name immediately rang a bell. And, shockingly enough, I’m not particularly familiar with Slavic girlbands, no. So where did I know this amazing piece of Eastern European music from?
Well, remember this?
This being when former Roland Garros champion, Anastasia Myskina, was caught* lip-locking with a woman with huge fake breasts? Well, that woman was Anna Semenovich. Who, according to Wiki, is a retired competitive ice dancer, singer, actress, model and, of course, former member of Blestyashchie. After some very entertaining research, I found out that Marat’s girlfriend joined that band to replace Nastya’s, uh, friend.
Awesome, right? These two grew together, played Hopman Cup together and are now are sleeping their way through some trashy girlband together. Just when you think the Russians couldn’t entertain me more… they do that. And just to help the girls (and boys) mourn, have some hot pictures of Maratski:
*by caught, I mean when she basically just turned to the cameras and said “Hey, look how I’m such a rockstar and make out with chicks”
