Russian workhorse Nikolay Davydenko was one match away from duplicating the 2010 feat when he defeated the top two players in the world, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, to repeat as Doha champion on Sunday, but this time the world No. 2 Federer was having none of it. Federer defeated Davydenko 6-3, 6-4 to claim his third career Qatar ExxonMobil Open title in Doha.

Bethanie Mattek-Sands, always a head-turner with her tennis fashions, pulled together a pretty fresh looking number at Hopman Cup recently. She’s in Perth representing the USA with John Isner. Her look is all Under Armour, minus the socks which are doubled up thin soccer socks (not UA). This outfit is one of my Bethanie favs so far.
The top is a version of the UA women’s slice tank and the shorts are similar to the slice pleated skirt. The exact pieces she has on are not available at the moment.
The surprise (to me at least) is the basketball shoes.
Mattek-Sands is wearing a version of Under Armour’s mens micro G blur basketball shoes in white and black (red laces included). Basketball shoes for tennis, hmmm; why not I guess, especially hard court?
I like this look a lot, with headband, minus socks.
The Hopman Cup runs through January 8, 2011. Learn more about it HERE.

Australia has got off to a great start at the 2011 Hopman Cup. On day 1 Australia defeated Belgium by 2-1.
Ladies Singles: Justine Henin (BEL) def. Alicia Molik (AUS) = 6-4 6-4
Mens Singles: Lleyton Hewitt (AUS) def. Ruben Bemelmans = 6-4 6-3
Mixed Doubles: Molik/Hewitt (AUS) def. Henin/Bemelmans = 1-6 6-3 7-6 (10/8)
It was great see Australia win their first match of the 2011 Hopman Cup. However, Im getting a little bit tired of seeing the same players year after year after year. Is this because Australian tennis isnt producing quality youngsters or is it because the organisers are just trying to fill as many seats as possible and not blood young players into the limelight?
