Holy fcuk!



French Connection, from whose teat TSF sucked a LOT of clothes, makes an appearance at these Wimbledon championships on British player Elena Baltacha. I never would have thought that their in-your-face branding campaign (“FCUK”, which stands for French Connection United Kingdom) could have a place in the hallowed grounds of this uber-traditional event.

But I guess an almost-obscenity is on par with mensy-looking get-up Dominika Cibulkova wore for her first round match against Jie Zheng. (Zheng won 6-4, 6-3.) Cibulkova subs for Tati Golovin as the 2008 Lacoste bunny. Sadly, this flashy underwear is now year-old news.

Cardigans aren’t Roddick’s style



Second round Wimbledon loser Andy Roddick isn’t about high tennis fashion. He didn’t join fellow Lacoste-sponsored Richard Gasquet in rocking that warm-up pullover (I’m still awaiting pictures, folks!), and he doesn’t go for a “Mr. Rogers” look like Federer.

Instead, he prefers to show skin. He and fiancee Brooklyn Decker are on the same boat.

That’s young love for ya.

“I don’t like her outfit”



As much as we celebrated all the fashion being paraded at this year’s tournament, there are folks who thought it a little too much for the event.

First, of course, is the grumpster Andy Roddick. Here he is dismissing Roger Federer‘s cardigan after defeating Schwank:

Q. The guy on the BBC as you walked off the court asked you about cardigans, all that stuff. Everybody has been talking about fashion, both men and women. Do you think that’s sort of like, Who cares? Do you enjoy the whole atmosphere here with that?

ANDY RODDICK: I personally don’t care. But, you know, if it gets — you know, I think any attention drawn to tennis for whatever reason is good. If that means wearing the Mr. Rogers’ sweater, whatever else you got, then so be it. I don’t know if it would be a good look for me or any of my friends – or relatives (smiling).

And now 20-year-old Russian Alla Kudryavtseva took her dislike of compatriot Maria Sharapova’s elaborate Nike outfit all the way to the winner’s circle. She upset the 2008 Australian Open champ 6-2, 6-4 in the second round.

“I don’t like her outfit,” Kudryavtseva said. “It was one of the motivations to beat her.” Ouch.

FYI, Alla wore a simple tennis dress (white with red trim) from Prince.

Make that two less dresses



Upsets abound at Wimbledon, even in the fashion department. First it was Akiko Morigami‘s withdrawal from the tournament, and now this: there was a miscommunication in the ranks at Fila that kept Agi Szavay from being properly fitted for her gorgeous Wimbledon halter dress they designed for her. Alas, this left her wearing separates at this year’s tourney.

But not to worry; while she might not be able to flaunt her curves the way she likes to, the Summer Collezione V-Neck Tank, with its gathered fabric bust detail, looks elegant from all angles of view.

Scoreline: The Hungarian is through to the third round of Wimbledon after defeating Monica Niculescu 5-7, 7-5, 6-2. She’ll face Anabel Medina Garrigues in the fourth round.

Buy: Fila Summer Collezione Tank, available in white and coral colorways, $39.99, TW.com.

buhskyooze: tipsarevic downs roddick



The Fila-clad Janko Tipsarevic shook up the men’s draw by beating Andy Roddick in the second round 6-7 (5) 7-5 6-4 7-6 (4), thus denying the American a third round berth for the first time in his eight years participating at The Championships.

Janko needs a haircut.
