20 Catchy Tennis-Themed Products

From Fuzzy-Framed Sunglasses to Tennis Court Business Cards

— June 2, 2013 — Lifestyle
These tennis-themed things show that anything can be made of anything. Would you have ever guessed that old tennis rackets could turn into a chair? What about tennis ball-textured sunglasses?

Vogue featured designer-made tennis balls disguised in jewels, studs, spikes and flowers. Tory Burch, Diane Von Furstenberg, Monique Lhuillier and Rag & Bone are just a few of the designers that bedazzled custom green balls in commemoration of a U.S. Open.

The dog apparel industry is also inspired by the sport, designing preppy tennis attire for stylish pets. The underwear industry also took a pointer from the tennis world—Venus Williams sported flesh-colored undies at the Australian Open, which caught her more glances than usual.
