Love him or loathe him…but one thing is certain. Janko Tipsarevic draws a whole lot of attention. Oakley’s International Tennis Star – complete with his signature tattoos, exuberant personality, off-the-court activities (Electronic Dance Music DJ by night) and trademark style (read: killer performance eyewear) – made major waves in the 2011 season, skyrocketing to a World No. 9 ranking. Just the way we like it.
El Clasico: Oakley Tennis Star Janko Tipsarevic Stirs the Pot in Goofy Video Blog at the Aussie Open
Janko Tipsarevic is a certified jokester. We love our ATP World Tour Tennis Star (who rocks Prescription, Photochromic Fast Jackets on the court every match) for his humor and personality as much as his sick skills on the court. And Yahoo! Sports/Eurosport knows exactly what we mean. Check this video blog of Janko stirring the pot at the Australian Open this week with Rafael Nadal and Feliciano Lopez as he examines Spain’s famed soccer rivalry, El Clasico, between Real Madrid C.F. and FC Barcelona.
The ATP Chennai Open in India is kicking into full gear this week. And Janko Tipsarevic is the top seed. Hold that thought. Oakley’s Serbian Tennis Star closed out 2011 in a spot he never would have dreamed he would have been at the beginning of last year: No. 9 in the World. Since breaking the Top 10 for the first time – after claiming two titles – he’s now slowly getting accustomed to the limelight. Let’s not forget his shocking victory over his good friend and World No. 1 bomber Novak Djokovic at the World Tour Finals in London.
