Re: Helen Jacobs picture thread

So many precious pictures in here.

My favorite so far is the 1934 doubles final---that is one dynamic looking backhand motion on Jacob's part.

By contrast her forehand was a "chop". And unlike other chops (like Elizabeth Ryan's for example) it was not a great weapon, but merely kept her in points until she got a backhand or to net.

The backhand was a shot to be feared-and the pic illustrates it perfectly.
