Joining Derrick Rose’s Torsion Attitude, Snoop Dogg’s Pro Shell and Lionel Messi’s Samba as part of “The Legacy of Craftsmanship” collection from adidas Originals is this Court Star for Caroline Wozniacki.

The hand-cut, hand-stitched silhouette carries a premium leather build dressed with faux fur swatches visible through circular cutouts along the upper, plus custom ice cream graphics printed on the insoles.
(As a child, Caroline’s feats on the tennis courts were rewarded with ice cream.)

Good bye

A bittersweet end of career for Kim Clijsters, beaten by Laura Robson in the second round of the 2012 US Open.

It’s the place that has inspired me so much to do well and to do great things. It’s hard to explain sometimes why.
This completely feels like the perfect place to retire, I just wish it wasn’t today.

She will be remembered for her four Grand Slam titles (US Open in 2005, 2009 and 2010, Australian Open in 2011) and her rivalry with Justine Henin, but first and foremost for her outgoing, friendly personality.

Thanks and good luck for your new life.

Andy Roddick announced his retirement Thursday, saying this US Open would be his final tournament.

I’ve always, for whatever my faults have been, felt like I’ve never done anything halfway. Probably the first time in my career that I can sit here and say I’m not sure that I can put everything into it physically and emotionally. I don’t know that I want to disrespect the game by coasting home. I had plans to play a smaller schedule next year. But the more I thought about it, I think you either got to be all in or not. You know, that’s more kind of the way I’ve chosen to do things.

Roddick is the last American man to win a Grand Slam event, winning the US Open in 2003. But he was unable to add another major championship, mostly because of Roger Federer, who beat Roddick in four Grand Slam finals (2006 US Open, Wimbledon in 2004, 2005 and 2009).

He will meet Fabio Fognini in the third round.

Upsets

Shock second round exit for Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, beaten by Martin Klizan, ranked 52nd in the world. Semifinalist at Wimbledon, quarterfinalist at Roland Garros and the Olympics this year, the Frenchman had been expected to meet Andy Murray in the quarter-finals.
Not since the Australian Open in 2007 had Tsonga lost before the third round at a Grand Slam tournament.

Winner in Cincinnati, Li Na – now coached by longtime Henin mentor Carlos Rodriguez – was ousted in the third round by British teenager Laura Robson.
By doing so Robson became the first female British player since Sam Smith in 1998 to reach the last 16 of a major. Next opponent: the defending champion, Sam ‘Shuffle’ Stosur.

Caroline Wozniacki, the 2009 US Open runner-up and a semifinalist in 2010 and 2011, crashed out of the US Open on Tuesday with a first-round loss, falling 6-2 6-2 to Irina Begu. Her ‘excuse’ this time: a right-knee injury.
Earlier this summer at Wimbledon, Wozniacki also lost her first-round match to Tamira Paszek.

Stosur Shuffle

The Petko Dance is so last year…

I’m sure I looked like a goose. I’m waiting for someone to tell me if it was all right or not.
