sa watch: pilot pen

andre-sa-pilotpen09a

In the latest installment of TSF’s Sa Watch, we drop in on our favorite (active) Brazilian tennis player, who’s doubles partners with Marcelo Melo, as he works on pre-2009 U.S. Open kinks at the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament in New Haven, Conn.

Sa and Melo took care of Brits Stephen Huss and Ross Hutchins 7-5, 6-3 in the first round. They’ll next face the third-seeded team of Czech Frantisek Cermak and Slovak Michal Mertinak, who beat Wesley Moodie/Horia Tecau 7-6 (4), 4-6, 10-7.

Cute headband, no?

how our mind works…

Now that I’ve successfully calmed myself down from that tiny (but long) earthquake that struck just outside L.A. earlier today, I thought I’d point out that our buddy Nick, the man behind Tennis Chatter, has now taken to doing video posts. He’s pretty insightful and speaks with good tempo and volume. Check it out!

Of course the first thing that pops into my mind is that Nick could totally be wearing different tennis clothes each week. I would have so much fun styling his vlog! He already started down that way by wearing the Marat Safin shirt from Stick it Wear?! in that video above…

…and a headband for this Wimbledon post.

For the rest, he’s gone mostly with solid screen-printed tees. See more below.

Varsity tees.

He likes green!
