Danish Tennis Player and current WTA Number One, Caroline Wozniacki, is currently on UK TV screens advertising Compeed – or is it spelled in capitals? I am not sure and care less. I have not heard of Compeed, if I suffered from blisters then perhaps I would have as they are maybe the number one blister-killers in the business. But I don’t play enough sport or undertake other foot-chafing activities to ever have to know this.
The ad briefly shows current World Number One yet never to have won a Grand Slam Caroline Wozniacki breaking one of her shoe-heels causing her own foot-heel to blister but thanks to this blister plaster was able to resume her tennis winning ways uninhibited.
Uninhibited but this time playing on court in those heels!
I imagined then an equivalent of a Golfing handicap system where the higher the rank the higher the heel you had to compete in.
Where when we say court shoes we don’t mean trainers we mean court-shoes!
Our own British women players alas would remain in their trainer flats.
Top ten players such as China’s Li Na and Russia’s Maria Sharapova in kitten heels, Caroline Wozniacki herself in narrower-taller stiletto-heels.
And the Williams Sisters? Well they would have to play in the McQueen Armadillos.
And for the men? Well Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal would have to play in Seventies Style Platforms.
Wimbledon starts its fortnight Monday June 20th – don’t hold your breath!
