Daily Bagel: Tennis players come into fashion

Wednesday September 21st, 2011

• Andy Murray is spending some of his vacation days with girlfriend Kim Sears at the Burberry fashion show during London's Fashion Week. Laura Robson was trenched out as well and showed that it is in fact possible to hide your sock tan.

• The men of the ATP just can't seem to keep their clothes on. First Rafael Nadal, now Janko Tipsarevic.

• Let's give it up to Serbian Davis Cup captain Bogdan Obradovic for the silliest quote of the week.

• Former Wimbledon champion Michael Stich ain't havin' any of this complainin' about the schedule. How do you say "Shut up and play" in German?

Sorry, Novak.

• Bruce Jenkins salutes the Argentines.

• Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta are set to play an exhibition against Serena and Venus Williams in Milan in December. Which is funny, because this is what the 2009 and 2010 Fed Cup finals should have been.
