Tennis Inspired + Wimbledon



Have you heard of the recent match this week between Isner and Mahut that was the longest tennis match in Wimbledon history? Wow, could you imagine playing 182 games lasting 11 hours and five minutes? Yikes. (read more about it here.)

All this tennis frenzy, got me thinking about the playful tennis fashion show and line that Jean Paul Gaultier put on for Hermes in the Spring 2010 -- what a fun show that was. How many of you play tennis?

Love tennis ... haven't played in a few years though. Used to be pretty good, but would be very rusty now! What a great show, beautiful.

I don't play but have been watching since I was a child. I remember waking up very early to watch the matches when McEnroe and Connors played, so fun. I'm travelling so I haven't seen any Wimbledon right now - 11 hours!!
