weekend fisting

There’s been plenty of fist pumping this weekend as the men have wrapped up their Davis Cup ties around the globe. Andy Roddick sealed the deal for the Americans, running his tie-winning DC record up to 11-0. And Harel Levy got shirtless in Sweden after winning two five-set matches to help the Israelis win that tie 3-2.

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!

wimbledon: volandri vs. kiefer

Correction: Apparently, recycled air gets to me more than I think, or the beginning of summer isn’t agreeing with me… or something. Because clearly I can’t read scorelines to save my life. Thanks to Bonifacio for pointing out that Volandri LOST to Kiefer in straight sets. Double le sad, because I was hoping to see more of his D&G gear at Wimbledon. Original post below.

Giant-killer Filippo Volandri translated his hot claycourt season (he beat Federer, remember?) onto grass with a straight-set win over German Nicolas Kiefer in the first round of Wimbledon…

..which is great and all, but we’re a little more interested in how he looked in his Dolce & Gabbana-designed outfit.

Let’s see the goods! Pictures after the cut…
