In mourning: Doesn’t look like Aravane Rezai has changed outfits since switching to Wimbledon whites over the spring. (Silver lining: all that black/pink bunting from her last dress are out of the picture.) Anyone out there with info on who’s whipping up her circus clothes these days? What’s going on with Scheyda? Their website’s MIA.
In mourning, pt. 2: Rezai couldn’t capitalize on the uptick in her 2011 record — after languishing in first- and second-round losses for most of the year, she put together a string of wins leading to an appearance in the finals of last week’s Texas Tennis Open in Dallas (where she lost to Sabine Lisicki). That was promptly squashed by Flavia Pennetta, who took Rezai out in the first round of the U.S. Open. (Draw: The Italian plays Kerber in the quarterfinals. See which other ladies made it to the final eight.)
