I grew up in a tennis family, playing at our family club, sporting the little socks with pom poms and watching Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe and Andre Agassi crush the ball back and forth across the court. It was inevitable that I would fall in love with a tennis player albeit a high school varsity level player, but a tennis dude nonetheless. There is something about the build, the tan, the long hair that just makes me melt! It was also inevitable that my man and I would create a tennis dude, obsessed by the game, in love with the garb, following his role model Federer and resembling him in a way! Crazy? So here's a little homage to the sexy tennis men in my life past, present and future.
Early 80's after a round of paddle tennis at the Sand & Sea Club Santa Monica, CA.
Wow, just dying to get on that court circa 1999.
A few weeks ago.
Crouched in the bushes watching his idol on the practice courts last week at the US Open.
Elegantly attired as always.
One of the many incredible Spaniards playing pro:
Feliciano Lopez ~ Ay Caramba!
Rafa on the practice courts.
Really hot Frenchman Arnaut Clement ~
Love the Provençale bandana!
Do you have any aces? No, Go Fish!
Novak, my Serbian lover and me in St. Tropez ~ Summer 2009.
