Tennis' Most Glamorous Fan?
The ever-intriguing world of tennis may get short shrift from most sports pages and the media at large, but the game has one dedicated—and seriously chic—supporter in Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. In the September editions of her women's and men's magazines, tennis makes more than a few appearances. In "Talking Fashion," the chic people of the moment are Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova and...Roger Federer. Then in "People are Talking About," the Serbian marvels Novak Djokovic and Ana Ivanovic (looking their very best) each get a page. In Men's Vogue, Ana scores another page. This comes after last spring's Federer cover, as well as previous feature articles about him as well as James Blake. Racqonteur has spotted Wintour's silver Town Car idling outside Manhattan's Midtown Tennis Club on numerous occasions, and it's fabulous to see that she's channeling her personal passion into some much-needed publicity for the sport.
