Sinopsis

One of the largest collections of tennis memorabilia including sneakers, hundreds of vintage rackets, rare tennis accessories, and tennis ensembles worn by the sport’s most iconic players.

From a sixteenth-century Italian book, the first to describe the game of tennis, to Arthur Ashe’s 1979 competition racket, and Novak Djokovic’s adidas tennis kit worn during his Wimbledon 2007 victory, this volume features over 150 pieces of extraordinary ephemera from the Museo de la Moda, alongside images of tennis superstars and seminal moments in tennis history.

The trailblazing champion of adaptive tennis, Gustavo Fernández, takes readers through his selection of one-of-a-kind tennis pieces from the world-class fashion museum in Santiago, Chile. Featuring original interviews with Novak Djokovic, Guillermo Vilas, Gabriela Sabatini, and Roger Federer, The Tennis Collection is organized by themes such as sportswear, which features pieces like Bill Tilden’s 1920s tennis sweater, to trendsetting tennis outfits worn by Virginia Wade, Chris Evert, Andre Agassi, Marcelo Rios, and Venus Williams; sections on rackets from eighteenth-century wooden rackets to Roger Federer’s 2006 “Ncode six-one tour 90” racket; as well as rare tennis accessories, artwork, and vintage tennis magazines. A rich survey the sports evolving style, fashion, and design, this volume is a must-have for lovers of the world of tennis.
