Arms of steel

These beautiful stills are from The New York Times’ article showcasing the new and not-so-gentle giants of sports – towering female tennis players who hit really hard.

Most of them are tall, lanky Eastern European beauties such as Jelena Jankovic and Elena Dementieva, who make for such beautiful lines. And then there is Serena Williams donning her ferosh some where in the slideshow. Thank goodness there’s an atmospheric piano track in the background.

Really, I don’t know much about tennis even though I love Rafael Nadal, have a boyfriend who plays tennis and went to Wimbledon just a few months back in June. I can’t comment much on the article, but these pictures by Dewey Nicks, fashioned with smoke screen, glittered tennis balls and some amazing tennis gear is absolutely breathtaking.

View the slow motion videos of the players here as well.

Breathtakingly beautiful. I know nuts about tennis too but kudos to Dewey Nicks for translating its beauty to common understanding. Thanks for sharing!
