Pippa Middleton has landed a new job as a contributing editor for Vanity Fair. Her first piece is on Wimbledon.

In the July issue of Vanity Fair, the 29-year-old sister of the Duchess of Cambridge writes a personal guide to the oldest tennis tournament in the world.

"I first went to Wimbledon when I was eight years old and already a very keen tennis player," Middleton writes. "During this first trip, I acted on my childish tennis dreams and bought myself a postcard of the women's championship trophy, on which I wrote, 'I will win this one day,' with my signature below."

The article, which is her first in a series of columns for the magazine, offers tips on which players to look out for who are "easy on the eyes" and gives highlights of her Wimbledon experiences.
