Need to update those featurettes Tennis Channel

August 8, 2009 |  4:40 pm

It's seems like a nice idea, what Tennis Channel is doing, offering vignettes about what different female players have in their purses. Saturday afternoon the episode was on Sania Mirza from India. Mirza has been known to wear not only earrings but nose rings and she was funny during her episode, finishing off by pulling out a bottle of body spray, spritzing herself and saying all tennis players needed some freshening up.

But there is one problem.

The feature was shot at La Costa, the gorgeous and very recognizable site of a previous Sony Ericcson WTA Tour event that has been defunct for two years.

One supposes that Mirza probably has changed the contents of her purse over the course of those two years. And that she has a new bottle of body spray by now. And that it might be very useful at this week's women's tournament at Home Depot Center where the sun can make players and fans very sweaty.
