greta arn: let’s get clinical



Greta Arn had the distinction (at least around these parts) as the player who took out Laura Robson in the first round of this week’s Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo. She lost in the following round to top seed Caroline Wozniacki. Check out the tourney draw here.

Arn wore Reebok (with some fun eyelet detailing) in her first-rounder against Kim Clijsters at the 2010 US Open. She brought back the skirt for Tokyo, but that top — with nude-colored straps reminiscent of athletic taping — could be from somewhere else (unless she’s covered the logo with that SEWTA patch). Anyone out there with more info?

this week's trophies + Sa watch



It was a busy week for small tournaments, since they pretty much won’t be heard from until early June (when the French ends). Let’s take a look at the trophies. At least they all looked different this time…

SEWTA: At the J&S Cup in Warsaw, Justine Henin beat Alona Bondarenko in straight sets for the gold trophy (photo, left), and Greta Arn (wearing blue) got a crystal cup for beating Victoria Azarenca (in orange) at the Estoril Open.

ATP: Estoril did slightly better on the men’s side with these white and green urns painted with guys in old-school sporting outfits. Nole beat Richard Gasquet in a three-setter, 7-6 (9-7), 0-6, 6-1. Doubles winners Marcelo Melo and Andre Sa received the same:

And Philipp Kohlschreiber (left) beat Justin Timberlake doppelganger Mikhail Youzhny in three sets to win the BMW Open in Munich. What is giong on with that trophy? It looks like a car phone my dad had in the early ’90s.

Finally, Champions Cup Boston is DEAD to me. But Kudos to Pete Sampras on his win:
