Description

Black-and-white image of a blurred man in a white outfit hitting a tennis ball against a black background. The man is holding the tennis racquet in his right hand. The racquet is repeated multiple times to create a semicircle on the left side and partially on the right side. The man is seen from behind and stands on a light gray surface.
