Marcel Granollers wore a Diadora v-neck with a faux blue layer to his second round match against Robin Soderling. The Spaniard lost 6-4, 6-7 (7), 4-6, 5-7. Nice touch with the gold logo’d hat. Go Bruins!

Kateryna and Nole: See two more styles after the cut…

Fourth seed Novak Djokovic beat Simon Greul 7-5, 6-1, 6-4 in the second round and will play Mardy Fish next. The American beat Tipsy. Le sad.

Note the red detail on the collar of Nole’s crewneck (with red being the trim color for adidas at this year’s Wimbledon. Buy: adidas Summer Edge Djokovic Top, white/pure red, $65.

Kateryna Bondarenko became part of the red carpet that Venus Williams will walk to her sixth Wimbledon singles title. The Ukranian lost 6-3, 6-2.
