• Brown adds spark of colour to US Open

    Brown adds spark of colour to US Open Colourful German-Jamaican Dustin Brown brought a bit of life to a relatively straightforward edition of the US Open during his brief week 1 stay.

    Few were able to miss seeing the garish shoelaces used by the No. 123 during his loss in the second round to Andy Murray.

    "They're not pink, they're orange, not pink," insisted the 26-year-old.

    Brown, who also refuses to sit during changeover for fear of losing his energy and focus, says his shoelace story is old news: "Me and my friend were playing in January 2009 at a Futures in Spain, where I found a bag with a bunch of weird neon colors (shoelaces)

    "I said that if we play the doubles final in the first tournament, we need to put them in the shoes. We lost the final but I kept them in there, and since then my ranking went from 450 to within the top 100."

    That was enough of a sign for Brown. "Every time I buy a new pair of shoes, I order the shoe laces. I don't go on the court unless they're in there."
