podcasting: your turn

Troy and I are returning to the TSF audio board this week for our third podcast. We’re re-capping what’s happened the last few weeks on tour, as well as looking ahead to what the clay season will/can bring. As usual, we’ll make sure to include some TSF-inspired talk, like just when exactly Alexandra Stevenson should retire officially and much, much more.

But wait! We want to hear from you! In the comment section, include a question or prompt you’d like for us to touch on. You’ve got all day today (Monday) to do so, so get to it, kiddies! We’ll make sure to touch on a couple of things you wise souls bring up.

Catch up on our two first podcasts after the cut.

asb classic’s podcasting

If you want to mix up your ingestion of tennis media, consider the podcasts coming out of the ASB Classic. Kevin Sinnott and James McOnie — the ASB Wildcards — chat with the women participating in the tourney about everything under the sun.

They interviewed Camille Pin on Day 1, and we find out about her love of scuba diving. (SEWTA did a photo shoot with her during last year’s Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, above.)

And on Day 2 they talked to a very engaging Tamira Paszek about New Zealand’s coffee, Austrian cuisine (apparently, Kässpätzle is delicious), and her rusty hairclips.

the all-england club for men’s hair loss

By Troy Venechanos

A few months ago, Andy Roddick hit what he called one of the best shots of his career. It was a diving save, one in which Roddick smacked a forehand down the line on match point to win a third set tie-breaker against up-and-comer Milos Raonic and capture the Memphis title. And while the web went abuzz with the video of the shot, many viewers weren’t actually watching Roddick’s shot. Instead, they were paying attention to a cap-less Andy, his hat having fallen off in his exertion of effort. And what was there to see? Not much, actually. An almost-bald Andy.Hair loss and tennis go hand and hand. Male pros often play into their mid or late 30s, meaning as they start to lose their hair, it’s left for all the public to see. Andre Agassi freaked out about it so much that he donned a fake hairpiece that had the world fooled. Pete Sampras has been so nonchalant about his after-career hair thinning that he doesn’t even seem to notice.

But we notice — we always notice. TSF has collected the hairdos (and don’ts) from around the tour in what we’re calling “The All-England Club for Men’s Hair Loss,” where styles differ from member to member, but everyone has one thing in common: they’re going — or already are — bald.

spotted in the city: the nasty and candy

City spottings: A couple of months ago I noticed this gem of a signed Ilie Nastase poster in David Thorpe‘s office, he of podcast fame. I’ll have him tell the back story next time we’re on air (soon!). More: TSF podcasts

Below, a little gift from the folks at Chance, who put up a pop-up shop on Elizabeth Street in Noho. The shop is up for the month of June, and thanks to this little morsel — a peppermint taffy was inside — I got the chance to enjoy my Sunday that much more. But as StyleBeat blog notes, Chance has much more than taffy to offer: former Kate Spade creative director Julia Leach is behind the scenes at Chance, and Marisa Marcantonio notes the collection is designed with “a yen for all things French and penchant for travel.” We can dig it.
