Fashion finds at the French Open

It’s French Open tennis time, and in addition to seeing great tennis — it’s the place to see what’s in style for the summer workout season. Venus Williams looked cute in her own artsy tennis dress design, but so far I’m more a fan of Belinda Bencic’s color combo. She and other tennis stars are rocking the orange and…

Fashion Friday — Orchid’s on the money

   January 17, 2014 6:31 am    0

Radiant orchid is pretty much everywhere as the color of the year. How do you wear it? How don’t you wear it would be a better question. Purses, dresses, tops, bottoms, visors, hats, shoes, boots, jewelry, nails, lips — even lightbulbs and more. And if the Australian Open is any indicator, the color will hit…

Tales from the couch

Whenever anyone is sick and confined to a couch, there’s the possibility of delirium. Well here I am. Armed with newspapers, magazines, the Internet and TV, I’ve learned some really important info and some totally ridiculous hooey. Good news: Janet Yellen, 67, became the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve — taking over the helm…

After watching many hours of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, it’s clear that gray and pink and red and blue combos are in — for men and women in sports outfits. First the good stuff: Sloane Stephens in UnderArmour looked great. There she is at left. I liked her outfit The USA Today article on the…

Spain’s Tommy Robredo’s three-set upset of  Roger Federer, owner of five U.S. Open titles, was hard to watch. The scores were 7-6, 6-3, 6-4. This closes out a year in which Federer has not made it into a single final of a major tournament for the first time since 2002. Rafael Nadal got a scare…

U.S. Open tennis fashionable and fabulous

   August 29, 2013 7:03 am    0

I love the U.S. Open tennis tournament. First the fashions. It appears purple and pink are the colors that are popping up everywhere on the tennis dresses, but not so much on the shoes — on the women’s side. The men have some purple and pink going on in the shoe department though. The tennis…

Women over 30, 40 make mark at Wimbledon

   July 1, 2013 5:02 am    0

When 42 year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm hit the court at Wimbledon, by most media accounts, she didn’t give 31-year-old Serena Williams much of a match, but she made her mark. Date-Krumm raced around the court like a youngster, won the hearts of people watching and stole Serena’s serve from her once. Date-Krumm lost 6-2, 6-0, but…

American men may be gone from Wimbledon (sadly earlier than in 101 years), but the American women are doing just fine, thank-you. Here’s who’s left: Serena Williams — I don’t think anyone can beat her, and kudos to her. At 31, she’s playing better than ever. And speaking of age, Serena’s next opponent is Kimiko…

Sloane Stephens, 19, earned a half million bucks last night, topped 35,000 Twitter followers and will likely break the top 10 in the Women’s Tennis Association. Her parents are Sybil Smith, a hall of fame swimmer at Boston University, and the late John Stephens, a former New England Patriots running back, who died in 2009. Last night, Sloane Stephens made history…

It’s early morning tennis time! You don’t have to be a tennis fan to appreciate the talents of Maria Sharapova, Novak Djokovic and more at the 2013 Australian Open. I won’t spoil anything for anyone, but some great matches take place overnight. Serbian Djokovic is playing this morning in a real nail-biter. Last year, he played in the…
