Fred Perry plays a back hand pass on The Centre Court at The Mens Wimbledon Tennis

Fred Perry plays a back hand pass on The Centre Court at
The Mens Wimbledon Tennis Championship.
It is not 100 percent clear what match this was, owing to the
dates on the card against events in this first Wimbledon week. But it was either Fred Perry playing Richard Williams of the USA in the second round (Fred won 6-2 6-2 6 -0) or Charles Tuckey of Great Britain in the first round. (Fred won 6-2 6-2 5-7 6-0)

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the golden era of tennis, capturing the legendary Fred Perry in action on The Centre Court at The Men's Wimbledon Tennis Championship. With his eyes focused and determination etched on his face, Perry executes a flawless backhand pass that showcases his exceptional skill and finesse on the grass court. The exact match depicted in this photograph remains somewhat elusive due to conflicting dates mentioned on the card. However, it is believed to be either Perry's second-round encounter against Richard Williams of the USA or his first-round battle with Charles Tuckey of Great Britain. Regardless of the opponent, Perry's dominance shines through as he emerges victorious with an impressive scoreline. Taken circa June 1934, this image transports us to a time when long trousers were still worn by athletes and wooden racquets were wielded with precision. The nostalgia evoked by this snapshot reminds us of tennis' rich history and its evolution over time. Renowned photographer Malindine expertly captures every detail - from Perry's stretched form to the pristine white attire synonymous with Wimbledon tradition. This picture not only immortalizes one of tennis' greatest players but also serves as a testament to sportsmanship, dedication, and timeless elegance exhibited on those hallowed grounds. Memory Lane Prints allows us to relive these iconic moments through their carefully curated collection. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece, we are transported back in time; feeling the excitement that filled Centre Court during those historic matches at Wimbledon.
