fashion focus: novak djokovic wears audemars piguet watch in australia

Novak Djokovic wins 2013 Australian Open, wears Audemars Piguet watch

Time on his side: World No. 1 Novak Djokovic became the first man in the history of professional tennis to win three consecutive Australian Open titles when he beat Andy Murray in the final: 6-7 (2), 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2.

It took nearly three hours for either player to break serve, and then only when Djokovic produced perhaps the best point of the match to expose a rare soft spot in Murray’s resolve. The win consolidated Djokovic’s position as the No. 1-ranked player in the world.

Commenting on his win Novak said: “I’m just trying to play every game with 100% of devotion, love, passion but also fun. I always try to embrace every moment and enjoy it as much as possible”.

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.

nishikori watches what he wears

Of course! The 2011 switch from adidas to the whites and reds of Uniqlo meant that Kei Nishikori needed to re-accessorize; the blue candy just wasn’t going to cut it. Instead, he’s been wearing an orange/red Baby-G.

The top Japanese ATPer got bounced out of the third round by Feli Lopez this week’s Barcelona Open. Lopez plays Dodig in the quarters and is in the same half as Rafa. (Draw: Barcelona Open singles [pdf])

kei’s candy

Let’s all take a break from that epic Wimbledon 2010 first round match between John Isner and Nicholas Mahut (it’s at 38-37 in the fifth set as a I type this) and take a look at Kei Nishikori. Kei had the luck of drawing Rafael Nadal in the first round. He lost the match 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Speaking of colorful accessories, adidas slapped a bright blue watch onto Kei’s otherwise white outfit. We love that extra bit of pop.

masha opens tag heuer’s melbourne boutique

Show pony: Before crashing out in the first round of the 2010 Australian Open with a 6-7 (4), 6-3, 4-6 loss to fellow Russian Maria Kirilenko (another short-lived cameo for those fab Tiffany drop earrings, sadly), Maria Sharapova helped open the first Melbourne boutique for Tag Heuer.

Maria wore a white Chloe shirt dress and black pumps from her Cole Haan collection.

almost, but not quite: caroline wozniacki

caroline-wozniacki-japanopen09

We’re trying to figure out what’s off with Caro‘s look. Is it the medusa hair? The black leather watch against the pale grey/purple adidas by Stella McCartney dress?

Bee tee dubs: (We’ve been drooling over watches lately, can you tell?) That honkin’ CW8 watch from Rosendahl was made with Caro in mind. The number 8 — her lucky number — is a big part of the watch dial’s design. Why that number? Think Beijing: “A dream of mine is also bound up in the 8th month of 2008 (and no doubt for lots of other sports people, too – need I say more?). Dreams and goals are important to me. I wish you every success and happiness with yours,” she says in a company brochure.

Draw: At this week’s HP Japan Women’s Open, Caroline defeated fellow Woz Aleksandra Wozniak 6-2, 6-7 (1), 6-2 (this, after she let Wozniak through to the quarters of the Toray Pan Pacific Open because of a viral illness). She faces Sam Stosur in the semis. Draw here.

tommy robredo in tacchini’s young line

Tommy Robredo fell to compatriot Rafa Nadal in the third round of the Shanghai ATP Masters in straight sets (6-1, 6-4).

Nadal’s been getting some flack for that green Nike polo he’s been sporting through his run in Asia, but no one can complain about Tommy’s classic look.

The two-time 2009 titleist (Copa Telmex in Argentina, Brasil Open) wearing a the Young line from Sergio Tacchini — the same design that John McEnroe made famous back in the day. And of course he accessorized the outfit with a white-banded TW Steel watch.

Draw: Up next for Rafa is Ivan Ljubicic, who won after Gael Monfils hopped on the Shanghai injury train because of a bad back (Murray, Roddick, del Potro, Haas, Acasuso, and Zverev are already on board). See the draw here.

tommy robredo keeps it classic

Spaniard Tommy Robredo is through to the third round after straight-set wins over Adrian Mannarino and countryman Daniel Gimeno-Traver. Robredo’s keeping things simple this week, playing in plain Sergio Tacchini polos (accessorized with a TW Steel watch). He next faces Maximo Gonzalez and will likely fall in the fourth round to the winner of Djokovic/JC Ferrero.

i am being BLINDED

Roger Federer‘s watch is darned shiny. Way shinier than the unpolished game he and partner Yves Allegro brought to their first round BNP Paribas Open doubles match against the Bryans. I hope this wasn’t R-Fed’s way to stymie his current funk, because…

Scoreline: Bryan/Bryan def. Allegro/Federer 6-2, 6-0. Match time: 42 minutes.

ivanovic poses for rolex

We’re all about Darren Rovell‘s obsession with Ana Ivanovic. He just posted a Rolex ad that ran in the program for last week’s Fed Cup tie between Serbia and Japan. (Marija — were there other juicy bits in there?)

Lest you think that TSF is just about the ladies (there’ve been an awful lot of pics of them in the last few days!), I would like you to ease your worries.
