Fourhand: Djokovic weds; Redfoo talks Azarenka 'heartbreak'
We're seeing the polar-opposite ends of the Tennis as Love Game spectrum this week, as Novak Djokovic and Jelena Ristic wed in Montenegro and Redfoo opens up about his "heartbreak" after a failed relationship with Victoria Azarenka. Let's get right to it:
WINNING AT LOVE The Daily Mail has photos of Djokovic and Ristic arriving in Montenegro for their nuptial, as well as images of the outdoor wedding structures being set up. The groom's blue shirt-red shorts-loafers look is great late-term bachelor style. The resort that hosted Thursday's ceremony is said to have hosted Hollywood luminaries including Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and Kirk Douglas over the years.
LOSING AT LOVE Redfoo, just ahead of his return to Australia for that nation's take on The X Factor TV program, is sharing more about the end of his relationship with Azarenka, who fell to No. 10 in the WTA Tour rankings this week after an early dismissal at Wimbledon. "It was tough," he says, adding, as only Redfoo really can, "I want to cryogenically freeze the love, put it in a lab, and come back to it when everything is organized and I can appoint another captain of the ship."
That statement may lead fans of one or both to think the bridge is hardly burned. (Also, be sure to click on the link even just to see a photo of the now-former couple featuring Azarenka's super-teased, nearly-permed hair.)
BIG BALLER John Isner threw out the first pitch at a Boston Red Sox game at historic Fenway Park this week after claiming a victory on the singles court at the ATP World Tour's Newport event, the Tennis Hall of Fame Championships. "I didn't want to throw a ground ball," Isner said. "It was probably a little over the plate, a ball." See more here.
REALTY CHECK In home-ownership news (how often do we cover that here?), actress Ellen Page has purchased Venus Williams' Hollywood Hills home. The property went for $1.7 million. Previously, Serena Williams sold an L.A. condo for $1.8 million.
