Looking for some geek chic?



Huge wire frame glasses? Check. Zip-up varsity jacket with loud sleeve patterns? Check. Siamese ice cream cone? Check. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

And yes, I think that is Kim Clijsters on the right.

Now it makes sense to me why Justine’s current wardrobe is so drab — she used up all her style points as a kid!

Juan Carlos Ferrero out on the town



(Editor Update: We’ve moved on to Tennis Now as of July 2012, but still covering hard-hitting off-court news like this one. Everyone needs to know what Juan Carlos Ferrero wears when at a nightclub, yes?)

You already know my love for all things asymmetrical. You can add this shirt, worn by Juan Carlos Ferrero at Spanish nightclub Barroco 39″.

What is Kolya wearing?



Question of the week: Aside from what I can only assume is his wedding ring, what else is hanging from Nikolay Davydenko‘s necklace?

Trophy Watch: the tennis year begins



With Roger Federer‘s first title of the season at this year’s Estoril Open, “the tennis season has finally begun,” says a hitting partner of mine. Even though this clay win was handed to him after Nikolay Davydenko retired with a leg injury, I’m sure this will feed his confidence as he warms up for Roland Garros.

Roger was up a set before Kolya pulled out at 7-6 (5), 1-2.

The Estoril Open trophy is still one of the best on the tour.

Maria Kirilenko gets shortchanged with a bland crystal cup after she bags her third career title at the Estoril women’s event. The gorgeous Russian, clad in adidas by Stella McCartney, took out the Czech Republic’s Iveta Benesova 6-4, 6-2.

Serena Williams caps her great week at the Family Circle Cup (she blew Masha out of the water in the third set of their quarterfinal match) with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 victory over Vera Zvonareva,

This week’s Kevin Anderson (or is it Kei Nishikori?), the barceloneo Marcel Granollers-Pujol, downed James Blake 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 at the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships in Houston.

Finally, David Ferrer wins the Open de Tenis Comunidad Valenciana. He outlasted two-time defending champion Nicolas Almagro 4-6, 6-2, 7-6.

The Spanish kids are alright



As expected (and more so now that Madrid is a main sponsor of Davis Cup), the Spaniards showed up for their quarterfinal tie last week dressed to kill. And that they did, brushing aside the Germans for a 4-1 victory. Kudos to Nike, Joma, adidas, and Lotto for all working together to make the Spanish team look like, well, a team.

The doubles team of Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco came out in Joma and adidas, respectively.
