trophies: indianapolis, umag, austria, stanford, rio, etc.

The trophy gods worked hard to give us some good ones this week:

In the hotfest over at the Austrian Open in Kitzbuehel, Argentinian Juan Monaco (in adidas) got taken to three sets by Potito Starace (wearing Le Coq Sportif). Bonnie was right: Juan should have been in my top 5. Really, I’ve never noticed a six pack bursting out of a shirt like that…

Pictureless: Italian Francesca Schiavone won her first career title in Bad Gastein, but we are without pictures. Congrats, Francesca!

In Umag, veteran Carlos Moya tells us not to write him off just yet with his 6-4, 6-2 win over Andrei Pavel. Gap-toothed or not, he’s still hot. And kudos to the tourney organizers for coming up with that offbeat blue trophy.

Other trophies: Stanford, Pan-American Games, and Indianapolis trophies after the cut…

fashion focus: le coq sportif

I have a confession to make: I am partial to cocks. My godfather used to breed them (for fighting), I was born on the Year of the Rooster, chicken is my white meat of choice, I get cravings for deviled eggs, and, well… the list goes on.

It’s why the goods from Le Coq Sportif — Babel Fish tells me that’s “Sporty Rooster” in French — have a special place in my heart. (It also helps that this clothing line sponsors Italian hottie Potito Starace).

They’ve got some cute clothes:

My picks, men’s line: Mod Vneck sweater, Tricolors Trapeze bag, Escrime Velcro shoe; middle row: Adam Zipped hoodie, Topaze bag; bottom: Opaque shorts, Arizona track jacket, Actarius polo shirt.

For the women: the Tricolore Minou Minou polo, the Trapeze All Over Print bag, and the Papiki shoe.

LCF in North America: Le Coq Sportif opened an office in Portland, Oregon headed by Tim Cool, a former adidas and Nike executive.

And they’ve wasted no time expanding their share of the market. Speaking of top-siders, Hypebeast smuggled these pictures of LCF’s casual shoe line (including the one pictured above) out of a Barcelona trade show.

What do you think about their stuff? Tell us.

potito, potato…

Potito Starace lost to eventual winner Rafael Nadal at last week’s Open SEAT Godo in Barcelona.

Here he is playing in the third round against Juan Ignacio Chela:
