serena's u.s. open jewels

Graff, not Graf: Funny — a friend of ours mentioned today that the jewelry Serena‘s wearing at this year’s U.S. Open (to complement her Nike kit) came to her from Steffi Graf. It turns out that all the diamonds are from Graff, a London-based jewelry shop with a New York outpost. Ooopsies. (I could not even imagine how earrings like this would ever end up in the hands of Steffi!)

Into the quarters: This year’s title is still for Serena’s to take, and Ivanovic rolling over in their fourth round match fed into this prophecy. Although the Serb did some damage with her forehand (and got some help with the gusty winds), it still wasn’t enough to prevent Serena from notching the 6-3, 6-4 victory. Serena next plays Pavs. (Draw: Women’s Singles)
