“Pictures of tennis girls shoving balls up their knickers” was a search term that brought a visitor to the site this week.
So I thought I’d better try and make him (it’s got to be a him hasn’t it?!) happy by posting the pick of my collection of… pictures of tennis girls shoving balls up their knickers!
In the Tatiana Golovin picture (right below) the ball is already up there. It made me wonder just how many tennis balls a player can fit up her knickers. Has a record ever been attempted?
So I googled the question, and found an answer on a trivia website.
If push comes to shove, a girl can hold 4 tennis balls in her knickers, assuming strong elastic and no sense of style. French knickers can’t hold any.
The picture above is Maria Sharapova 2011 Wimbledon vintage. It’s a bit reminiscent of the famous Athena tennis girl poster, but with knickers on of course. Perhaps if she wins the ladies final today, she will celebrate by trying to beat 4!
Just imagine the flashbulbs!
