want: wear the clay without getting dirty

Let’s leave the grime to the pros, ok?

What an entertaining semi! Schiavone played Bartoli, with the defending champ taking out the hometown fave 6-3, 6-3. She’ll face Li Na in the final; their combined age makes this the oldest women’s final since Tauziat and Novotna played Wimbledon in 1998 (via Christopher Clarey, that one).

Swatch comes up with the Jeux d’Elite Roland Garros watch — the same shade as the tourney’s clay courts — and puts it in a tennis ball case. Buy: € 67,00 at storerolandgarros.com.

There is going to be more drama and cat fighting on this night in New York than even Jelena Jankovic could handle. | Buy here | Watch on ESPN

Jessica Simpson looks way to cool on the cover of New York Magazine right now. Seriously? We want that hair. At least to see it on… say, Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Let’s see if BMS is into such a suggestion, k? And if you’re wondering how JSimp got her hair so big, just read the article. It’s where she keeps all her money.
