WANT: the 2010 if stockholm open mag cover



Posterity’s sake: Do we have readers at this week’s If Stockholm Open? If (hyuk!) so, can we talk shop for a sec? We’re trying to track down a copy of this year’s magazine; if it’s anything like the one with Delpo on the cover, it should be worth a gander. Scan and email, please?

Semis: The semis are now set, with Roger Federer facing off against Ivan Ljubicic and Florian Mayer — who upset second seed Robin Soderling — facing Jarkko Nieminen. More info at the tourney site. FYI, Roger played his landmark 900th match in the second round, beating Dent. He’s currently the only active player over 900. See more deets about the record here.

flashback: delpo’s stockholm open mag cover



We’re hoping that this year’s cover of the If Stockholm Open magazine will be as sizzlin’ as it was when Delpo was on the cover.

More info: If Stockholm Open, October 16-24, 2010. Tourney site; ATP tourney site.

the cutest barbed wire i have ever seen



The folks at Athletic DNA have given Aussie Peter Luczak a patriotic version of their Warrior tee (yes, we quiver in the face of all that barbed wire!). Unfortunately, this tough exterior was no match for the fresh Joachim Johansson, backed by his hometown crowd in their first-round battle at this week’s IF Stockholm Open.

Buy: Athletic DNA warrior tee, in white/grey, $49.95 at athleticdna.com.
