jankovic blooms in the charleston dirt



Jelena Jankovic left the orange in Miami, opting for green floral print to start off her spring clay campaign.

Draw: At this week’s Family Circle Cup in Charleston, Jelena — as the third seed — beat Paszek and Scheepers and is now playing the quarterfinals against McHale. The winner gets to play top seed Wozniacki in the semis. On the other side of the draw, Peng plays the winner of Goerges/Vesnina. See how all the ladies are faring here.

caro does the charleston



Almost reminiscent of Maria Sharapova’s blue/orange Nike dress from Miami four years ago, top seed Caro Wozniacki debuted another combo from her adidas by Stella McCartney trunk of wonders. For the Family Circle Cup, being contested this week in Charleston, S.C., she paired an “infrared” (orange) sleeveless tank with a pleated skirt. Note the same orange tone on her shoes. (The Stella line shoe is Eileithyia, but Caro’s wearing Barricades, yes?) Ruching on the tank aside, we’re not really all that impressed with this combo. Can’t wait to see which dresses will end up at Roland Garros and Wimbledon. (What do you think of Caro’s Charleston outfit? Love it? Hate it? Don’t care? Tell us!)

Draw: Wozniacki made quick work of American Irina Falconi, beating her 6-1, 6-1. (Draw: Family Circle Cup)

Buy: adidas by Stella McCartney Tennis Skirt (img), white or blueprint, $85; Perf Tank, $75; adilibria Barricade shoes customizable at miadidas.com.

reebok's fruit: purple peer is in season



It’s no Sharapova Swan Dress, but we smiled just the same upon seeing the pleats on this purple Reebok dress, currently worn by WTAer Shahar Peer. TSF ran into her — in uniform — at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, giving us a chance to see the detail on the tank’s straps and the skirt’s hem. The dress from this Vibrance Statement collection has pleating all around the bust.

Buy: Reebok Vibrance Statement Dress, $53.95; Tank, $41.95; Skirt, $37.95 in Malibu Blue (teal), Black, or Purple, midwestsports.com

Hitting the dirt: Peer is seeded fifth at this week’s Family Circle Cup in Charleston. The rest of the top eight: Wozniacki, Stosur, Jankovic, Bartoli, Wickmayer, Petrova, and Kleybanova. Get all the tourney info on their website.

I had a dream…



…that everyone on tour started dressing like Aravane Rezai. It was very scary.

That’s it — no more sidecars during weeknights.

FYI: The Frenchwoman lost early at this week’s Family Circle Cup in Charleston, S.C.
