tennis for the style set: a breakdown



Style.com takes a look at summer sports through their glasses, breaking down how the fashionistas view the worlds of surfing, tennis, golf, riding, and diving.

For tennis, special shout-outs go to Anna Wintour, L’Wren Scott, Alexandre Herchcovitch, curator Kohle Yohannan, Tina Chai, Hilary Rhoda, Sophia Hesketh, and Poppy Delevingne. Thakoon Panichgul apparently plays on public courts (LES ones are his fave), and Tory Burch does doubles all summer in Southampton.

Of course they toast Roger as the sport’s official mascot (is this the beginning of Rafa backlash?); Brooklyn Decker gets groupie-of-the-moment (we would’ve given it to Bec Hewitt), and give love to NYC’s Mason’s Tennis Mart (on 56 E. 53rd St.).

Not least is anticipation of how the tail end of the 2009 U.S. Open will conflict with the opening of the Spring 2010 runway shows.
