street ball



Tennis has always been a country club, countryside sort of sport. Monday in Toronto, however, it was urban as it could get when Caroline Wozniacki and Ana Ivanovic took to the streets downtown in an exhibition event for this week’s Rogers Cup.

Wozniacki was having a ball on the pavement, but do you remember the all-time most famous tennis-in-the-lanes moment? It might be here:

And no, that’s not bed head. That’s Venus sporting a sexy do for media day at the Rogers. We sure hope she takes that hair to the court, don’t you?

    Love Venus’s new, natural hair. HATE the t-shirt though. The pattern is very Laura Ashley.

  2. I love that street tennis commercial with Pete and Andre. So classic.
