Our avid reader Sarah recently entered Wilson's "Win a hit with Juan Martin Del Potro" Contest on Facebook where you were supposed to take a photo of yourself playing with a new Wilson® BLX tennis racquet. Sarah was determined to come up with the most original idea, and although she didn’t win the grand prize her work deserves a lot of appreciation and so I’m sharing her photos with you.
You know how fascinated I am with the tennis fashion of the past. Sarah did a photoshoot with an 1890s tennis theme and I have to say her idea was very original and she carried it out great. Sarah took the photos at a place called Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA. She wanted a grass court because it best fitted with the theme. She did a lot of research before the shoot on what the players wore in those days. She looked at numerous photos of Suzanne Lenglen and Helen Wills Moody and did her best to copy that style and look of play.
Besides Sarah, the credit has to be given to her mother Judith Anderson who took these photos. She is a professional photographer.
