roger's u.s. open shoes: a closer look

I (heart) NY: More from New York Magazine’s coverage of the 2007 U.S. Open, this time a close-up of Roger Federer‘s shoes.

Nike continues with style from Wimbledon (photo) but switches to a white/silver/blue colorway to match Roger’s blue polo. They used black for the monogram and red for the three marks on each shoe (that’s one mark one for each U.S. Open title Roger has won so far).

What do you think of his shoes? Tell us!

2007 U.S. Open: We’ve been watching the qualies, practice sessions, talking to coaches, photographers, and everyone else out here… Not that many big upsets on Day 1, but some good matches took place on Monday. Americans Donald Young and John Isner won their first round matches, leading me to think at least one of them will make a run to the quarters. Tommy Haas also won.

On the women’s side Henin and Jankovic won their matches in straight sets. Caroline Wozniacki (who played in the juniors last year) won her first round showdown with Tzipora Obziler in three sets. Also Ahsha Rolle upset Tatiana Golovin under the Louis Armstrong stadium lights.

Look for the Day 2 wrap tonight and stay tuned for more pics.
