Tennis Anyone?

American Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, watching Roger Federer at the semi-finals of the French Open Friday afternoon and evening.
We're not the only ones who love tennis, particularly when it involves Roger Federer as it did last night, when, at about 9 p.m. he qualified for the finals to be played tomorrow against Rafael Nadal.

Roger Federer at the French Open, Roland Garros. (Note fashion coordination: red shirt, red wrist band, red shoe laces, no wonder Anna loves him.)
For those not as passionate about the subject as My-Reason-For-Living-In-France and I are, Roger is #3 in the world placement, Rafael, #1.

Anna smiling at Roger. . .
One of Federer's biggest fans is Anna Wintour, editor of American Vogue. Last night she was center stage/court with the player's wife, family and friends. She actually looked excited when he scored a brilliant shot and at the end -- are you ready for this (?) -- she smiled. She beamed actually and Anna does not waste her smiles on just anyone.

 Beautiful again today. Have a lovely weekend.

A demain.

An exciting match at Roland Garros tomorrow for sure. We've been watching all week. My husband is a Federer fan and I like Rafa.

They are both fantastic players. Tennis hasn't been this exciting since Borg & McEnroe.

I wondered if you would mention the French Open. Tennis is my passion and I've enjoyed the coverage of the city as well as the awesome tennis. The quarters & semis have been some of the best ever.

Anna Wintour smiling...Bet the photog who caught that was paid big bucks.

This picture is one of the best I have seen of her because she is smiling!! She usually looks so despondent....and yet so stylish!

Anna does not love Roger because he is stylish, Roger is stylish because Anna loves him. WSJ had an article recently on AW and Roger mentions how he checks with her on what to wear. She's responsible for his Wimbledon outfits, the RF logo, and much more.

She should smile more often...
Images of her usually show a serious and stern looking Wintour...
I think she looks much younger smiling!

Have a great weekend Tish

Wasn't the Federer-Djokovich match a thing of beauty? I don't often leap out of my seat and shout at the TV! Which rather startled my husband...

Anna's arms are giving her age away in that first picture, lovely to see her smile though, I think she is smitten!

What a match! I listened to the the semi's on Radio Roland Garros and I'm trying to find a replay of it somewhere on the internet...I still want to watch it, even though I know the outcome.

I agree with Sam's comments, this is the such an exciting time for tennis.

I always love to see what Roger's wearing, he looks particularly dashing in robin's egg blue.
