An Illustrated History of Tennis Fashion
During the Victorian era when women took up the sport, their corsets, bustles and dresses were so restrictive, the daintier-by-necessity ladies’ game was nicknamed “pat ball.” By the 1890s, white was the go-to color on the court since it best concealed perspiration, and in 1905, Mary Sutton Bundy ushered in the 20th century by daring to reveal her wrists on the court. Scandalous!

Finishing today with a session on the VersaClimber. 30 degrees and incredibly humid on the balcony, no better place to do a session! #Miami #Training #KeepPushing
I’d love to hate you but you are too nice of a guy.

One day, you realize that there are some people you’ll never see again. At least, not in the same way.
I wonder who’s gonna be by my side in 10 years
Don’t drop the phone. Don’t drop the phone.
Vasek Pospisil appreciation post
Disbelief. I mean…incredible. This is the event you dream of as a little kid to play in, and to win, which is something incredible, and I can’t believe we did it- it’s really really special right now. This is what I’ve worked for my whole life, ever since I started walking I’ve been hitting balls around the house, and pretty much all I’ve done my whole life is tennis, so…it’s like a dream come true right now for everybody in my whole family- my dad especially, who’s so much a part of this- coached me pretty much my whole life, and unfortunately he couldn’t be here, but really special moment for everyone.
Andy training in Miami [And YES, Amelie is with him ;)]
Happy Birthday Myla and Charlene Federer.
What's wrong with sleeveless?
I have nothing against sleeveless I was super excited when I heard he was going back to sleeveless but I just don’t like the color choices and the three different shades of pink it just didn’t look good
