tattoo watch: sam warburg. shirtless.

I know that some of you are cool with keeping things anonymous when it comes to your men, but just in case you want to get to know them better: I think this is Sam Warburg.

Squint if you must: Alas, we botched saving the photo we took of a circular tattoo on his right inner forearm. But it’s there!

Draw: Sam lost in the first round of the US Open qualies to Michael Berrer.

tattoo watch: jose acasuso

Tattoo watch: TSF spent some time watching Nadia Petrova work on her serve at the Pilot Pen Tennis tourney’s show court yesterday morning (she fared well with it during her match against Anna Chakvetadze; too bad the rest of her game didn’t click), and for doing our homework we got a treat in the form of Jose Acasuso, who practiced after the Russian.

Scoreline: The Argentine faces compatriot Maximo Gonzalez in the first round of the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament (they play today).

tattoo watch: olga govortsova

Tattoo watch: A ho-hum tattoo from Belarus’ Olga Govortsova, who lost to Li Na in the third round of the 2009 French Open.

We were suprised to see Li as the only Chinese woman left in the draw, expecting that Zheng Jie would go deeper.

Meanwhile, Victoria Azarenka, another Belarusian, is going into a third set against Carla Suarez Navarro. They have a set a piece (7-5 for both) and will continue their suspended match tomorrow.

tattoo watch: alona bondarenko

Alona Bondarenko could bag her first SEWTA Tour title of the year if she defeats Romainian qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru in tomorrow’s Warsaw Open final. Alona beat Anne Keothavong 6-2, 7-5 to advance to the final, while Dulgheru upset Dani Hantuchova 6-4, 6-7 (2), 6-1.

At next week’s French Open, Alona opens with a match against Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova, and has Amelie Mauresmo, Agi Szavay, and Venus Williams in her section of the draw.

Tattoo watch: Meanwhile, we’ve discovered this photo of Alona’s back tattoo, taken during the a 2009 Aussie Open match against Svetlana Kuznetsova. It looks similar (and is inked almost in the same spot) as her sister’s.

tattoo watch: daniel koellerer

Austrian tennis player Daniel Koellerer upset top seed David Nalbandian 1-6 6-3 6-4 in the first round of the Acapulco tournament.

BTW, the Mexican version of ESPN The Magazine put Venus Williams on its February cover (in anticipation of the tournament, which she won). The mag also included an article on Nalbandian, plus a decent layman’s write-up about the event’s “ATP 500″ designation, and how that fits into the rest of the ATP scheme.

tattoo watch: bolelli’s twofer

FYI, Simone Bolelli got his left forearm marked up (to go along with another new tattoo and his long-standing “S“).

Unconfirmed post at MTF says it’s his girlfriend’s name. Can anyone back it up?

Scoreline: At this week’s Barclays Dubai Championships in Dubai, Simone lost in straight sets to Richard Gasquet in the second round.

tattoo watch: venus stays noncommittal in dubai

venus-williams-dubaiparty09a

Venus Williams applied an elaborate henna tatto for this week’s Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships party. It’s not the first time Venus has flirted with tattoos — remember the disappearing act of 2007?

Scoreline: As she had wished before the beginning of this tournament, Venus will get to play against sister Serena in the Dubai semis. Venus took out Elena Dementieva 6-3, 6-3 while top-seeded Serena had no problem overcoming the go-for-broke strategy employed by Ana Ivanovic (Serena won 4 and 4).

tattoo watch: moving foreward

guillermo-canas-forearmtat

I’ve been seeing an awful lot of forearm tattoos lately… I should take that as a sign that I should get one myself (my squid is getting lonely).

Guillermo Canas showed his off in the first round Australian Open men’s doubles match with partner Marat Safin. We hadn’t seen this one before. Hebrew script, I think. Is it new?
