us open qualies: a classy spaniard took the court



The 2009 US Open qualies “Best Dressed” Award goes to Eloisa Compostizo De Andres, who lost in the second round to 20th seed Mariya Koryttseva 6-2, 6-1.

We’re all about the simple and classic accessories that went with her outfit (from Domyos).

Keepin’ on: Rain washed out most of the play on Friday, so today will be a madhouse. All rain-suspended matches from Friday will resume play at 2pm, followed by postponed matches, followed by the matches actually scheduled for Saturday. Get more info here.

I’m ready for my close-up: A few more pics of Eloisa after the cut…

trophy watch: sunfeast is in the running



Congrats to the Sunfeast Open for being in the running for Most Innovative Trophy of 2007. Winner Maria Kirilenko received this traditional Indian painting (unveiled last week by Sania Mirza). Runner-up Mariya Koryttseva received her doorstop. The scoreline: 6-0, 6-2.

But the cabal behind all these stuffed tournament mascots needs to take a break. Don’t overdo it, people. Calcutta had the yellow sun, and Beijing had its own lime green version below…

In doubles, Vania King and Alla Kudryavtseva beat Koryttseva and Alberta Brianti 6-1, 6-4.

At the China Open, Jelena Jankovic got a little karmic lecture when she lost in the finals to current hot potato Agnes Szavay (again dressed in her cute Marta Makany outfit). Szavay came from behind to defeat Jankovic 5-7(7), 7-5, 6-2.

As you may remember, Jankovic took out Lindsay Davenport 6-3, 7-5 in the semis and accidentally hit her with a ball. How funny that it was Lindsay who bore the brunt, since she channeled her fair share of Eeyore back in the day.

And on the other side of the world, Tatiana Golovin gets back to being match tough by winning against Katarina Srebotnik 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 in Slovenia. I love the orange Lacoste skirt!
