More on clothes being optional in looking good, Caro also showed off her great bod when she modeled her new underwear line. Weeeell, atleast this was different from her off-court staple, Herve Leger, which I’m sure she wore on her way to the shoot.
Everybody knows that Roger always looks great in a suit (see Suiterer link above) so seeing him walk around in these Kanye West-designed Air Yeezy IIs (with some non-blue jeans!) was a nice surprise. You gained some extra cool points with me on that one, Mr. RF.
Masha’s the best dressed female athlete 90% of the time. This is Exhibit A of that other 10%. I gotta give her props for keeping it together the entire night because that Alexander McQueen was begging for a malfunction.
Vika looked great in this little ensemble she wore for her official Australian Open trophy pictures. She looked fresh and young and the blue/green combo worked well with that new, large, shiny accessory.
The amount of buzz this wig generated was ridiculous. I wish the actual photoshoot it was used for was talked about as much because it’s a great spread. There was some really bold styling and we’ve never seen Masha in anything like it before. (Menswear on a woman? Where do I sign up?)
Serena’s the first tennis player to ever grace the cover of US Vogue. She often talks about her love for fashion so I can only imagine how excited she was to be on the cover of the biggest fashion magazine in the world. This is only the second time US Vogue has featured athletes on the cover. I may have fist pumped for Serena when this came out.
Being on the cover of Vogue is pretty hard to top but Roger, style maestro of the entire tennis world, can do it. How? By being thrown a birthday soiree by US Vogue’s editor-in-chief and tennis fan, Anna Wintour, herself. Some of the guests were the who’s who of the fashion world—Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and David Lauren.
Was there ever a doubt that Roger would be at the top of this list? I think not. I’m sure I missed a look or 10 here and there. Feel free to refresh my memory.
Yup, that’s your former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki trying to explore other talents. Whose idea was this? When someone says they like to sing karaoke for fun, it does not mean you put them in a recording booth.
This song, Oxygen, was recorded to benefit the Danish and Polish Paralympic teams. That’s nice but I’m, um, not exactly sure how. (Yes, I’m a horrible human being.)
Caroline Wozniacki stopped by Good Day New York earlier today to promote the BNP Paribas Showdown in Madison Square Garden. She talked about tennis, Serena Williams’s comment about her previous No. 1 ranking (“they [media] like to make up stories, so…”) and, of course, “having fun” with Rory.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say these two interviewers have not seen a full tennis match in their entire lives. I give Caro a lot of props for not reaching over and punching Pervert & Clueless.
If you beat Caroline Wozniacki three times in a row, you’d be this happy too.
Julia Goerges ended Caroline Wozniacki’s bid for a second straight Dubai title. Gools defeated the former No. 1 in the semifinals, 7-6(3), 7-5, and has now won their last 3 meetings.
Does this mean Gools has the Dane’s number? Perhaps but who doesn’t these days? Caro’s game is terribly out of sorts that even her infamous moonballs are misfiring (mislanding?). She looks clueless on court, it’s painful to watch. I think a mini solo vacation is in order so she can clear her head. Find your zen, girl.
Gools will take on Agnieszka Radwanska for the Dubai title later today.
If she had only converted one of those 3 match points today, maybe we wouldn’t be calling SOS on Caroline Wozniacki’s career right now. Maybe but we’ll probably do it tomorrow anyway. It was very close but at the end of the day, she lost in the early round of a tournament. Again. Caro has only been to the semifinal or better in two of the last 12 tournaments she’s entered. That’s a horrible stat for someone who until recently was the #1 player in the world.
Is it the coach or lack of a real one? Caro has said that she likes her coaching relationship with her father and she’s not looking for a change but these results suggest that something is not working. I’m sure she sees it, they are too glaring to miss. If she doesn’t, well, the media will constantly remind her of it. So, why insist on being stuck in this slump? Is she waiting for some kind of miracle? Is she looking for a hero? (Just kidding. She isn’t.) Is she content with everything she has in her life now? She’s got a pretty good one—young, rich, famous and in love. There are plenty of questions but I don’t think we’ll get answers anytime soon. Caro is still looking for them. I hope.
