LBDs in Osaka

Posted by gauloises1 on October 13, 2009

The laydeez promoting the HP Open in Osaka:

I’m assuming the tournament asked them all to show in black, which was a smart move – with some minor hiccups, like whatever it is Schiavs is wearing and Marion’s navy blue – because they look lovely. I even like Caroline Wozniacki’s dress, and Kimiko Date-Krumm looks fab. Like a sexy hairdresser.

Cheesy Times in Tokyo

Posted by gauloises1 on October 6, 2009

So I’m not sure whether this was before or after he lost (if it was after, that would kind of extremely suck), but JMDP attended a reception for the Rakuten Japan Open in Tokyo at some point, along with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils and Lleyton Hewitt.

Sorry Gael, you *what* L.A.?

I want to bottle Jo’s expression in this photo.

Why is Ayumi Morita there?

Not that I wouldn’t get hammered with/by JMDP, given half the chance.

I’ve *just* noticed Bambi’s hair is back. Thank god.

To quote IRTTY, “Sir Broods-a-lot”.

But nothing’s that bad when you have a small wooden box.

WTA Week Ahead: Tokyo, Yo Tokyo

Posted by gauloises1 on September 28, 2009

So Tokyo is happening this week. Already.


Draw here. With the exception of Serena, everybody’s either playing or has lost already. Fun times in the WTA! The quarters break down thusly: defending champ Dinara-Vera Zvonareva, Kuznetsova-Wozniacki, Azarenka-Dementieva, Jankovic-Venus. Damned if I know who’s going to win this thing.

Anyway, have some pictures of the girls putting it about to promote the tournament.

Is Venus advertising Tampax too?

Shazza shills shoes. Or Prussian fetish gear. It’s not really clear.

One of these women is the real no. 1.

Have I mentioned that Venus looks like she’s going to a barn-raising in the Delta Quadrant?

Because she does.
