sharapova FINALLY wears her new clothes



Oops. So we were a little premature in reporting Maria Sharapova‘s newest outfits back in March. We’d hoped that the blue Nike dress would make a Miami debut. Instead Masha opted to wear Gator colors that week and waited until the French Open to parade this new outfit.

The dress — reminiscent of what Stella McCartney designed for Maria Kirilenko at last year’s Wimbledon — can be worn with the black leggings. And Masha did that for her first round match. But she chose to go bare for the second round (photo, left). Yowza!

Also, that embroidered visor is a nice touch.

What do YOU think about the outfit? Tell us.

Lotto, clothing sponsor to Spaniard David Ferrer, joins the sleeveless shirt bandwagon with this white and red number.

Ferrer wears necklaces and bracelets, too, JFTR.

What do you think of his look? Tell us.

without murray, fred perry soldiers on



I’m sure Fred Perry is disappointed that it couldn’t show off Andy Murray‘s sponsored clothing at this week’s French Open (he’s out with a wrist injury). They’re not missing a beat, though: yesterday they sent out an e-mail reminding us about the tennis collection, which consists mostly of what Murray’s been wearing on the tour. Truth in advertising; I like it. (Mind you — they have some other collections that are also worth checking out.)

Here are my highlights (from left to right): pillow bag, grand slam jacket, and a medallion shirt.

Tipsarevic d. Safin, aka why I love tennis



Two of the sport’s more mercurial players squared off in the second round at the French Open. Serbian (and Patrick Rafter look-alike) Janko Tipsarevicsans glasses — emerged the winner, beating Marat Safin 6-4, 6-4, 7-5. Judging from these photos, it looked like a tight match. Did anyone see it?

Clothing: Marat’s in adidas and Janko wore Fila.

fashion: russian dressin’



French clothing sponsor Airness still has top Russian Nikolay “Kolya” Davydenko to help boost its international profile at Roland Garros this week.

They’re really taking care of him. They had him in four different shirts in Hamburg earlier this month, and now this black/orange number. I’m not in love with it, but it’s not atrocious.

What do you think about this color combination?

(Their other player, Nadia Petrova, crashed out in the first round yesterday. Her injured back contributed to her loss against qualifier Kveta Peschke, and will likely keep her out of Wimbledon, too.)
