Photographer Unknown: French Tennis Star Suzanne Lenglen, 1926
What a pity that the photographer of this iconic sports shot from 1926 is not known. You can buy a low-priced modern print of this picture here.

A really wonderful and expressive photo.
What's even more impressive than that is that this woman became a tennis star despite missing one of her legs.

Actually she's rather poorly positioned. She needs to be much more side-on to hit a backhand volley so close to the service line, and remember the wrist should always be below the racket head. What I really wonder about this photo is what camera was used, and how long did she have to stand on one leg?

This photo definitely gets and holds your attention. When you get right down to it, isn't that what successful photography is all about?
