I  got in touch with Fila and received exclusive information about their new Platinum collection to be debuted at the 2015 US Open.

Fila prides itself on designing a collection that is a "modern day version of a suit of armor ready for battle on the tennis court", owing to THERMOCOOL(TM) fabric which optimizes the body's natural thermal capabilities through smart fiber cross-sections, tonal jacquard and mesh texture pairings, laser-cut no-sew seams, silhouettes that enhance the form via body-map inserts, and intelligently placed media ports to accommodate tech devices. The colors Fila played with this time include black, while and teal piranha.

Fila’s leading representative Jelena Jankovic will wear the Platinum Dress that exists in teal piranha and white hues, with contrast straps. There is a bottom ruffle at the back. As for the separates, there are five types of tops and two skort styles. Pictured above is Yaroslava Shvedova wearing the Platinum Halter Neck Tank and Platinum Ruffle Skort. I'm yet to receive a promo photo of Julia Goerges.

The collection also includes a quarter zip top, jacket, 3/4 capri pants and a tote. We will have a closer look at the items from the Platinum Collection when it becomes available at retail.

Additional info: JJ is  currently awaiting her final against Kai-Chen Chang at a small WTA tournament in Nanchang, China, and she's wearing the blue Fila Spring Spirit Triangle Tank with bright yellow back and the matching blue skirt.

Feng Shanshan poised for Buick Championships win

China's Feng Shanshan shifted into cruise control at the Buick Championship on Saturday as the world No. 5 carded a conservative three-under 69 to open up a seven-shot lead through three rounds of the China LPGA Tour-Ladies European Tour co-sponsored event.

The U.S. LPGA regular, a winner of 13 tournaments worldwide, was at 15-under 201 after 54 holes at Shanghai Qizhong Garden Golf Club.

Norway's Marianne Skarpnord (69) and South Korean Kang Hyeon-seo (69) were a distant equal second at the 600,000 U.S. dollars championship, while Dane Nicole Broch Larsen had the best score of the day at 65 on the strength of two eagle-threes to sit fourth, nine shots off the pace. Read more »

Rafael Nadal will undergo stem cell treatment on back

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal seems ready to put this year behind him. His coach and uncle, Toni Nadal, told the DPA news agency that the ATP tour's No. 3 ranked player didn't have the treatment earlier in the year because it can take up to five weeks. It was a nagging injury, but he seemed able to play through it and did not want to miss such a large chunk of the season.

Now that he's missing this week's ATP Finals as he's recovering from an emergency appendectomy, it's time to put this year behind him and start getting as healthy as possible before the next Australian Open.

The Associated Press confirmed with Nadal's doctor that the treatment will start next week. The doctor told the AP, "we are going to put cells in a joint in his spine."

His troubles started during the men's final at the Australian Open in January, which he lost to Stan Wawrinka. Nadal, 28, went on to win at Roland Garros, but that would be the only highlight in his year. He was stunned by teenager Nick Kyrgios in the round of 16 at Wimbledon, then missed the remainder of the summer with a wrist injury.

It was expected that his wrist would heal in time for the U.S. Open, his coach said. Otherwise, the back treatment would have occurred during the summer. He planned to play in the ATP Finals this week, but was again forced to sit out after last week's appendectomy.

Next week's treatment will be similar to stem cell treatment he had on his knee last year, his doctor told the AP. He should be back to training in early December.
