shirtless: the (liberal) men of SLC



Run, boys, run! Some good natured (and good bodied) folks in Salt Lake City, Utah, took to the streets over the weekend in protest. And in little clothing, we might add. The first ever Undie Run was held to bring attention to what organizers called the state of Utah’s “uptight laws” and nearly 3,000 joggers and walkers participated. We’re just curious: Are there really this many tight-bodied guys in SLC? Or were the photogs wearing their TSF goggles while shooting? Video of the barely-clad, politically-minded guys and gals below.

shirtless: bod by janko



Move over, Nole. And you too, Rafa… and Fernando. So Janko Tipsarevic made mention during the US Open that the reason for his recent success was that he had finally dedicated 100 percent of himself to tennis — and his body. The Serb isn’t joking around, appearing in a series of shots for the company Extreme Intimo, which makes underwear, nighties and other wear-at-home items. Janko and his total-toned bod can be seen on their Facebook page. Click the images below (or here) to visit the full gallery, which has 146 Facebook “Likes” and counting…

Oh right, and we couldn’t deprive you of the making-of vid, now could we? | TSF Vault: Shirtless

shirtless: just call them ballsy



Fore! We’re a little late on this, but the boys of the Bethany College (Kan.) golf team got ballsy this summer in doing a team photoshoot. Too bad the school’s administration didn’t like their tan lines. Oh. And the captain’s name? Jack Hiscock. No. Really.

(Thanks to Dan Savage for the tip)

ferrer, quietly, in the mix



Still in it: Spaniard David Ferrer is one of the few players left in the draw who snuck into the round of 16 of the 2011 U.S. Open without much fanfare (along with Monaco and Gilles Muller); pretty much all the other guys have either tussled with (and toppled) high-profile players or are BMOCs themselves. Ferrer, the fifth seed, will face Andy Roddick for a spot in the quarters; the winner of that match plays Nadal or Muller.

Lotto: Simple kit for Lotto‘s guys this year — nothing to write home about. (That torso, though, is a different story.) As for Lotto’s women, they’re still charging on with the same flirty kits they’ve been playing in all year. Glad to see Radwanksa in the mix to help Pironkova and Schiavone sell the brand’s designs to fans.

shirtless: janko tipsarevic



Uhm, hi: Some practice pics we found of Janko Tipsarevic from this year’s U.S. Open. Lots of other images if you follow the links. (Please do!)

Up in the air: We really didn’t know which side to root for as we watched today’s 4th round match between Janko and Juan Carlos Ferrero. On the one hand, you want the Serb to break through and get past his first-week rut at the Slams. On the other, you want to give Juanqui a last hurrah before his impending retirement.

No upset: The 20th seeded Tipsarevic prevailed after a looong match — 7-5, 6-7 (3), 7-5, 6-2 — to reach the quarterfinals, making this his career-best performance at any major. Let’s hope he’s content getting that far because his next opponent is Novak Djokovic. (Draw: See how the quarterfinals are coming together for the men.)
