Women's Tennis Stars Do Slow-Motion Tennis Videos For New York Times | Sharapova's Thigh

The New York Times put together an interesting video gallery featuring some popular women's tennis players, playing tennis in slow-motion(not actual match footage, but some pretty cool studio action).

The video is called "The Beauty of the Power Game", and is based on their article "How Power Has Transformed Tennis". It's a terrific read, and even talks about Maria Sharapova:

But back, too, from shoulder trouble, is Maria Sharapova, the Russian champion and tennis’s commercial gold mine, the quintessential baseline basher with razor-sharp ball-striking abilities. She won her last Grand Slam in 2008 and reached the final against Clijsters earlier this month in Cincinnati, where she injured her heel but looked as if she had nearly returned to form. At Wimbledon, after beating Anastasia Pivovarova, another towering Russian, 6-1, 6-0, in the first round, she could be seen marching back to the locker room, all business, cellphone clapped to one ear, her white satin bolero sparkling in the afternoon glare as the crowds, like filings drawn to a magnet, swiveled to watch her pass, whispering “Sharapova” in her wake as if she were an apparition.
