Wimbledon Recap: Day 3

Just as we were celebrating Victoria Azarenka's return to winning, she loses. Her three set loss to Bojana Jovanovski was a reminder of just how hard top players work day in and day out to get the wins expected of them. Spend a few months off due to an injury and the setbacks are enormous. Vika came off court "pissed off" (her own words) that she'd lost and somewhat impatient to get back to her best.
                        
"I have to be [hard on myself]," Azarenka said. "I have to be realistic. I cannot sit here and say it's all great, because there's no moving forward from there. I'm going to be hard on myself just because I want to be better. ... I want to go back to practice like tomorrow, maybe even today. That's it... Im ready to work."
          
It's a good thing - compare her determined attitude to that of Sloane Stephens complacency and it explains why one of them is a Grand Slam winner and the other is fading out.

RG '14 Fashion Hits and Misses

I'm a little late on this but that turned out to be not such a bad thing. Originally, I had big plans to sing praises about Venus Williams's dress while tearing into her sister Serena's choice, but that wasn't to be. I won't review anyone already out of the tournament and lo and behold, both of them along with Li Na and Stan Wawrinka will be spared my fashion critiques due to their early losses. I'm sure that's a real silver lining for them. It allows me to review some new people, although we will start with the men who are so far largely unscathed.

Novak Djokovic's clothing sponsor Uniqlo are known for their basics and so far they've really lived up to that reputation in the tennis world. Everything here is pretty, er, basic, but it's an improvement on the black/red/white look we have seen too much of. I like the baby blue on Djokovic and paired with the crisp white it contrasts nicely against the clay. Djokovic loses points for a lack of originality, but it's a nice outfit all the same.

Petra Kvitova and Radek Stepanek Split Up

According to Czech news sources, Petra Kvitova and Radek Stepanek are a couple no more. Tyden news website has quoted a representative of both players as saying, "I can confirm that a partnership Radek Stepanek and Petra Kvitova ended." Nova Sport quoted Petra Kvitova explaining that the tennis commitments that brought them together eventually split them up. "To combine a career with fellow top tennis players sometimes life is simply impossible," she said.
                                                                                                                                                                
I've got to be honest, they were never my favourite tennis couple and with Stepanek dating Kvitova so soon after splitting with Nicole Vaidisova it didn't seem likely to last. Stepanek has a history of dating tennis players - Martina Hingis, Vaidisova and Kvitova  - so we will see who he goes for next!

Australian Open Day 1 Roundup

Venus Williams was in a knock-down, drag-out fight with the #22 seed Ekaterina Makarova (the woman who took out her sis Serena in the 4th round in 2012).  She battled fiercely, but in the end she made one too many errors and was knocked out the Australian Open in 3 sets.  Here is the *slightly* silver lining.......the consensus on her dress (via Twitter) was two thumbs WAY up and we will get to see more of it because she is still in the doubles draw with Serena.

On the flip side, Tomas Berdych started his AO campaign with a fairly easy 3 set win, but even with the win, all people could talk about was his H&M kit. I thought he would be wearing some of his signature gear from his collection but instead we got this:

Tennis' New Couple: Petra Kvitova and Radek Stepanek

We started hearing the rumors in June that Radek Stepanek (who was seeking a divorce from his wife Nicole Vaidisova at the time) had begun dating Wimbledon champion and fellow Czeck Petra Kvitova, but until now, it seemed like they were just that...rumors.
