An illustrated history of tennis fist-pumps.

To celebrate the beginning of this year’s U.S. Open, Brooklyn artist Mickey Duzyj has assembled an absolutely gorgeous (and quite thorough) collection of arguably the greatest tradition in all of tennis – yes, we’re talking fist-pumps. Seriously, this is better than any infographic I’ve seen in years. It’s clear ESPN has more than just a talented illustrator on their hands as I’m convinced Duzyj might actually be a serial fist-pumper himself. Silent squeezes aside, I’m having a hard time deciding on my favorite – it’s either Lleyton Hewitt’s The Broken Chainsaw or Jimmy Connor’s The Hornblower. What do you think? View the entire collection here.
