Bespoke tennis fashion with TLC for Italy’s Camila Giorgi.
I do see custom tennis fashion on the rec courts from time to time and there is designer bespoke fashion being made for WTA players, but Mom as seamstress? Yes, unusual but it’s not the first time.
If you’ve hung around tennis long enough you may recall that Tracy Austin’s mother made Tracy’s competition looks and they are now part of a museum collection.
One of Tracy’s U.S. Open dresses stands in the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, evidence that Mom’s love CAN take you to the top.
But will Camila stick with Giorgi or will she get a contract? I love the story but my bet is on the money.
