Wimbledon, 1973, The Maiden Collection, Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture by Martin Cooney

~~~

The inspiration for this piece came from the lovely,  nay mesmerizing and extraordinary women tennis players of my youth.  My intention was to capture one of these formidable ladies as she readied herself to pounce and return a blistering serve.   I can see her… Billie Jean,  or Chris Evert,  or perhaps the amazing Yvonne Goolagong;  leaning back ever-so-slightly, right arm raised, crouched, legs splayed, slightly bent at the knees.  Love fifteen!  What a return!!  The women tennis players of Wimbledon, circa 1973,  that I watched with awe on our family’s black and white TV set in the early seventies were like no women I had ever encountered in my young little cloistered world.   These ladies were incredibly fit,   tough and wired to win,   and kept us all mesmerized with their phenomenal on court skills.
