On the 27th of March –

I finally won a tennis match from someone I’ve lost to many many times before. Great game, very close and I needed a tiebreak to win. To keep the glow and the smile on my face just a little longer, I want to share some tennis from Europeana.

This is what happens if you do not play often enough: you grow mushrooms on the tennis field:

And I always want to include a plate, if at all possible:

Of course most of these are shown here just for fun, as well as their cultural significance. If you want to watch some historic tennis matches, Europeana has over 800 videos on the subject.
