i <3 wimbledon



fan-wimbledon09a

A fan at the Kunitsyn/Roddick second-round match. Roddick took it 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 6-2. He next faces 26th seed Jurgen Melzer, who beat Beni Becker in three sets (two tiebreaks).

Now that JM Del Potro has been ousted by perennial grass threat Lleyton Hewitt (yay! more fun pics of Bec Cartwright!), this is looking like the Wimbledon quarterfinal clash o’ the year.

shade yourself!



The current lot of Lacoste sunglasses leaves something to be desired (aviators: yawn), but if you feel like browsing — and seeing how they look on Andy Roddick and Tati Golovin — see the interactive site here.

I’m still lusting over the chunky sporty shades the French tennis brand released last year; particularly the model LA12602 (above).

You can find them in a few places (and in a few colorways).

Brown/Orange/Black at Amazon.com, $89.95; Grey/Green/White at Amazon.com, $89.95; Brown/White/Red, sold out.

Janko Tipsarevic - Miami 2008

So much for the clean-cut look of Janko Tipsarevic. After spending the first part of 2008 sans piercings, glasses, and breathing strip, he’s fallen back to his usual ways — likely to help deal with the heat and the humidity of Florida in the spring.

Yay: Tipsy’s on a roll so far, knocking out two seeds (No. 29 Fernando Verdasco and No. 11 Mikhail Youzhny) to get a spot in the quarters. He took out Yooz in three sets: 3-6, 6-0, 6-3.
