I hate to be a Negative Nellie, but so far I’m unimpressed with this year’s US Open Players’ Party. Where is everyone? (And by everyone I mean Federer, Nadal, Sharapova, Roddick, etc.) Maybe we’ll get video of Nole pole dancing with the Bondarenko sisters tomorrow. . . until then, here are some photos of Venus, James Blake, Tommy Robredo and others. The event took place on Saturday evening at the Skyline Studios in NYC. So much for the rumors that Nicole Vaidisova and Radek Stepanek broke up.
Now this is a well-matched couple. Bethanie Mattek-Sands, with her husband, Justin Sands:
James Blake with someone named Olivia Palermo. Don’t think they’re dating, but they make a cute couple, no?
Wow, Tommy Robredo, flying solo:
Those jeans are really nice. And I like the watch. Good job, Tommy!
Venus Williams was there, too:
Yes, Venus can pull off a jump suit. A jumpsuit with ruffles:
Actress Emmy Rossum with a tennis ball:
I really hope we get to see some actual tennis!
