This is a self-acclaimed LET’S FANGIRL OVER LENA post. Proceed with caution (or don’t proceed at all) if you’re a hater*.
Lena trash talking (or Lena’s equivalent of “trash talking”) JJ, according to Doug’s Sports Blog:
Asked about Jankovic’s complaints the other day, the fourth-ranked player laughed: “I don’t know what to say. It looks like she’s playing every single week, more than anyone else. If she can play two tournaments in a week, she will do this.”
O snap, Lena.
The Golden Goddess wasn’t satisfied with the sarcastic mockery of Jankovic. She then decided to also show off her superior intellect. In the Hero video, “Players Favorite Books”, this becomes quite obvious. The question: “What’s your favourite book?”. Severine Bremond’s answer was Stephanie Meyer‘s Twilight. Lena’s reply was Tolstoi and Dostoievski books. Oh, Lena, stop it! Now we can tell you’re doing on purpose.
And Nadia‘s favourite books are War and Peace and Gone With The Wind. She must have a huge attention spam. I can hardly get through the Gone With The Wind movie in one sit — and it’s one of my favourite movies!
*To da left, to da left.
P.S. Once again I apologize for not posting but I was a) sick and b) busy watching the FINA World Championships in Rome.
E.g. of a good campaign: Looking For A Hero?
The WTA’s campaign gets a little off-track with their recent interviews, loses its focus, even. But no one can deny it’s entertaining. They do what should have been done a while ago — they get personal with the tour. Even if the campaign’s goal seems to be mystify the players and their ~*special powers*~, we’re equally interested in their “human” side. That’s what their two latest videos, Life Without Tennis and Players’ Most Extravagant Purchases, show.
The most interesting aspect of the video is that we find out that Aravane Rezaï would like to be either an actress or astrophysics (sic) if she wasn’t a tennis player. Astrophysics. Yes, astrophysics. And Severine Bremond would like to be a singer. Only we don’t hear her sing. Coolies.
Now, this, this is my favourite one:
What have all the players bought? Cars. Fast, expensive, convertible cars. I’m amused by the players describing their cars’ technical details and such while the interviewer just goes “Fast?”. Yes, fast, dude. I would probably make a question as dumb as that one like “So, it drives, eh?”. The only girl that actually bought something, you know, girly was Vika. Hermès bag that she’s been wanting for three years. I think this means she’d been wanting a Hermès bag for three years, not that she bought a bag from seasons ago. Just thought I’d clarify that. And of course, as usual, Stosur and Stubbs provide hilarious moments.
And example of bad, very very bad campaign, you ask? L.A. Women’s Tennis Championships‘ Save The Grunt. I even feel secondhand embarrassment.
Because you saw this coming. Tea + catching up with tennis = all I need at the moment.

Gise’s pic is actually not from today because I couldn’t find a decent one where you could see the Lacoste logo. Only 45588941 different images from Sharapova. Who needs unbiased Journalism, eh? Lena V./Vika picture I believe was posted here. If not… HOW CUTE ARE THEY? Answer: Very. Lena V.’s RG doubles outfit was lovely. Black tight dress and that bicolour headband. I approve it, she looked gorgeous (as usual). Now, it looks like Pavs’ headband is from the Men’s collection. I still like it though. I believe it would have been slightly more girlier if the Adidas logo was to the side, but oh well. I don’t know if you can see in the tiny picture, but if not, click here, HER NAIL POLISH MATCHES HER SHIRT. Ignore the fact Pavs lost today to Vinci, she’s such a frakkin’ baby rockstar.
The same headband worn by Lena V. in doubles at RG was worn by Gise in Stuttgart. In this picture, you can see it more clearly. I want it. It matches my red (or should I say “terre batue”?) RG wristband. Special appearance by: Flavia Pennetta (headband-less).
Here we learn with Severine Bremond the different ways to wear a handband and look stylish. First picture is at RG, she wore it on top of her head (à la Serena/Blair Waldorf). At Wimbledon, the “regular” way. And at last year’s US Open she wore a ridiculously pretty blue-and-white one. God bless Lacoste.
