top seed wozniacki sends off '04 winner kuznetsova



Top seed Caroline Wozniacki came back from a set and a break down to swat down 2004 champ (and 15th seed) Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-7 (6), 7-5, 6-1 and reach the quarterfinals of the 2011 U.S. Open. (Draw: Women’s Singles)

Sveta battled Danish scuba gear while wearing the Pierluigi pieces from Fila‘s fall Heritage collection. This is named after Pierluigi Rolando, Fila’s first designer and the creative lead from 1970-1984; he designed the brand’s famous logo and collections for Borg, Becker, Goolagong, and others.

As Fila brainstormed about how to celebrate its 100th anniversary (what made the cut: resurrecting Goolagong’s outfits for Clijsters in Melbourne and Seles’ for Roland Garros; staging an exhibit at the Tennis Hall of Fame; creating interactive marketing campaign), they also looked through Rolando’s archives in Italy for some inspiration.
