lenglen

i blame the lapse in blog entries on tennis elbow. actually, i did have my first two tennis lessons this past week! there've been many hours of live tennis championships on our television, and i've played my fair share of wii tennis, but i never actually attempted to hit a ball with a racket until tuesday afternoon. suffice it to say, i've got a very long way to go until i'm playing for fun, but i'm so excited to learn!

naturally i show up to the court in oversized college tees, shorts, and my beat up nikes, but i recently discovered several lovely photos of 20's tennis great suzanne lenglen, who is credited with revolutionizing womens tennis fashion. (she even took time to reapply her lipstick between sets!) i haven't yet been able to find
this book in the u.s., but i plan to get my hands on it asap.

pretty lady, no?
