fashion focus: novak djokovic wears audemars piguet watch in australia



Novak Djokovic wins 2013 Australian Open, wears Audemars Piguet watch

Time on his side: World No. 1 Novak Djokovic became the first man in the history of professional tennis to win three consecutive Australian Open titles when he beat Andy Murray in the final: 6-7 (2), 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2.

It took nearly three hours for either player to break serve, and then only when Djokovic produced perhaps the best point of the match to expose a rare soft spot in Murray’s resolve. The win consolidated Djokovic’s position as the No. 1-ranked player in the world.

Commenting on his win Novak said: “I’m just trying to play every game with 100% of devotion, love, passion but also fun. I always try to embrace every moment and enjoy it as much as possible”.

Maria Sharapova is a sweet tooth

Maria Sharapova is a real sweet tooth by the looks of it. She recently launched her candy line, Sugarpova, in Melbourne while in town for the 2013 Australian Open.

Fashion Focus: Maria paired Jimmy Choo heels with a sporty beige/orange dress designed by London-based Georgian David Koma as part of his Spring ’13 collection. (View: David Koma Spring 2013 runway show)

Down Under: The Russian’s Aussie Open prep got sidelined by a collarbone injury, which forced her to withdraw from Brisbane. She looked back on track in her first round match, though: As the tournament’s second seed, she beat compatriot Olga Puchkova 6-0, 6-0. (Draw: Women’s singles)

Just as sweet: Looming in the third round is a possible showdown against No. 25 Venus Williams. We can’t wait.

Nicolas Kiefer has pulled out of this year’s Australian Open because of a left ankle injury he sustained at the Hopman Cup (two weeks ago). He was to face Guillermo Canas in the first round. Instead, Canas will play German qualifier Dieter Kindlmann.

Feel better, Nicolas!
