SIGHTING: Tennis' brightest stars attend IMG's Aussie Open player party

Party time: The start of a Grand Slam always means one thing: player parties! Some of the biggest tennis ballers in the world dropped their racquets and picked up a cocktail (or soda water - whatever) at IMG's party player on the eve of the Aussie Open at Breezes, located in the Crown Towers. They gathered to toast the start of a (hopefully) successful season and the first Grand Slam of the Year.

Rafael Nadal & James Blake

Xavier Malisse & Joachim Johansson

BTW - when did Joachim Johansson become so model-boy cute? We need you back!

UPDATE: Thanks to our readers for letting us know these images were from a previous year's event. We're on the search for this year's IMG party pics and will post them if we find any!

  1. That picture of Joachim is not new. It's from a few years ago.

  2. um - we have to disagree valery, per the description on the photo caption from Getty Images:

    "MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 14: Tennis player Joachim Johansson of Sweden attends the IMG Tennis Party ahead of the Australian Open, at Breezers at The Crown on January 14, 2007 in Melbourne, Australia. (Photo by Kristian Dowling/Getty Images)"

    maybe his look isn't knew, but this photo of him from the IMG Player Party new

  3. You've been sold a pup, Rich.

    These are not the Jan 14th IMG AO Tennis Party pics. They are from a player party at one of the tournaments - Sony-Ericson Miami I think - last year when Maria wore that outfit and Rafa that striped shirt and jacket... he was wearing a plain white shirt at the AO bash.

  4. crap - does anyone have this year's pics?

    sorry valery, you were right!

    i'll going to put an update and thanks for letting me know!!
