sightings: anna kournikova at the sunrise tourney



Anna Kournikova - BMW Tennis Championships 2008

Anna Kournikova, spotted on the grounds of the BMW Tennis Championships in Sunrise, Fla.

Speaking of Anna, I think the new K-Swiss casual line — the same ones being sold at the pop-up store in Santa Monica — is also available at CO-OP (The Grove). So those who fear the water or anything west of La Cienega can still look fabulous. (I’ve been trying to find pictures of the clothing online (to no avail). I’m going to visit the store soon and let you know if I find anything to upload.)

Chopped liver? Leave it to ZooTennis to remind us that there is a world outside of Indian Wells in early March. For instance, the early round men’s losers at the season’s first combined event had a chance to redeem themselves at the BMW Tennis Championships in Sunrise, Fla.

On the list: Kei Nishikori, Jarko Nieminen, Sebastien Grosjean, Gilles Simon, Potito Starace, Michael Llodra, Andreas Seppi, Nicolas Mahut, Janko Tipsarevic, Marin Cilic, Nicolas Kiefer, Marc Gicquel, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, Vince Spadea, and Jurgen Melzer.
