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.

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.)

shirtless: nadal and kortajarena take on armani jeans



We never got around to posting images from Rafa‘s Armani Jeans Fall/Winter 2011 campaign shoot — the poster of which he made a cameo for at Macy’s right before the start of the 2011 U.S. Open — so here they are!

Spanish Armada: Nadal was photographed by Steven Klein for the ads; fellow Spaniard Jon Kortajarena, meanwhile, is the face of the collection’s catalogue. See all of JK’s looks here.

fans flock to rafa’s big (shirtless) unveil



They came to see Him, with a capital “H”: Do you love a tourist-crowded department store in the middle of New York City on a weekday afternoon? If so, please quit reading this blog — we don’t understand you. TSF joined the likes of fellow blogs Tennis Panorama and Down the Line! on Thursday afternoon at Macy’s in Manhattan’s Herald Square for the unveiling of Rafael Nadal‘s Armani jeans billboard at the store. Oh right, and there were hundreds of Rafafanatics there, too. (See above.)

Crowds poured into the usually-packed-anyways Macy’s for the unveil, which saw the world no. 2 step onto stage, say, “Hel-lo” into a mike and get his photo snapped — with the billboard of himself. How do you think he looks?

Above: A reporter records a spot on the stage where Nadal would later hand out 100 pairs of briefs bearing his signature for the first 100 customers to spend over $150 on Armani collection items that day. Below: TSF’s view from behind a barrage of cameras flashing at Rafa.

Plenty of Rafa posters welcomed fans around the store on Thursday.
