Racquet is a quarterly magazine that celebrates the art, ideas, style and culture that surround tennis.
In celebration of Wimbledon’s Centre Court, which turns 100 this year, Raquet presents Issue 19, entirely filtered through the prism of that storied court. It’s cover features Althea Gibson, the first Black athlete to win the Slam, painted by Marcus Brutus.
In this issue: Cultural attaché Andrea Petkovic takes on Centre Court, where she has never set foot; Laura Bailey photographs British upstart Francesca Jones; Tom Parker photo-documents the evolution of Centre Court over the course of a year; Jessica Iredale analyzes Andre Agassi’s Wimbledon kits; Joel Drucker looks for the meaning of John McEnroe at the All England Club; and so much more!
