Fantastic Man‘s New Issue Has a Great Cover Even if You’re Not Into Tennis
Though he might be a living legend to some, 46-year-old German athlete Boris “Boom Boom” Becker is not exactly who you’d expect to see on the cover of a men’s fashion magazine. Luckily for us (and tennis enthusiasts everywhere), Becker’s fellow countryman Juergen Teller shot the famed player and coach in action at the Wimbledon Tennis Club for the Spring/Summer 2014 issue of Fantastic Man. The result is a cool follow-up to the magazine’s weird-but-good cover choices, which have most recently included director Spike Jonze and conceptual artist Jeremy Deller.
The issue will be out in the U.S. very soon and also features interviews with Stuart Murdoch of sad bastard music heroes Belle & Sebastian and the Opening Ceremony-approved Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy. In the meantime, let legendary tennis pro Andre Agassi educate you on some of Becker’s tongue-y serve tendencies.—Chris Black
