Fashion photographer Radka Leitmeritz was at her local playground with her son when she saw a poster for tennis lessons. She was in search of something new, took the poster as a sign from the universe and immediately signed up for the lessons. Radka went to her first tennis lesson in what she describes as a ‘Wimbledon finals outfit’ and picked up a tennis racket for the first time. It was love at first sight for the photographer. She became obsessed with the sport and now practises almost every day. Radka didn’t leave her passion solely on the court, she brought it over to her world of photography. Now she’s fully immersed in capturing the world’s best tennis players in a completely different and refreshing light.
