This is certainly what this New York Times article is suggesting. But what else is the article suggesting? Or is it possible the article's existence is to simply video some of the game's best in weird clothing and slow motion?
You be the judge.
Personally, I find it a little weird, specifically some of the outfits being showcased. In fact, this Salon article goes into a little deeper. But I also understand the appeal of slow motion video - everything looks better in slow motion - and so I can't 100% fault the Times for making this play.
However, I also would have maybe, you know, focused a little more on the idea of tennis, and not on the sculpted bodies. But that's just me.
