Pippa Middleton has added another role to her ever-growing résumé: contributing editor for Vanity Fair.

The sister to the Duchess of Cambridge will be writing a series of columns for the mag, and for her very first article, Pippa has penned a personal guide for Wimbledon watchers, sharing her memorable tennis moments and detailing her early dreams to play in the legendary tennis tournament.

"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 party planner and author of Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Family and Friends  also gives useful advice for attending the prestigious tournament, shares her picks for sexy players and even dishes on her own tennis-going experience.

"Queuing from five a.m. on ‘People's Sunday' in 2004 with my sister for three hours and getting £35 tickets on Centre Court; my first time ever," she recalls. "Seats were a free-for-all—and I recall almost tripping over myself trying to get as close as possible to my birthday-twin British hero Tim Henman."

Finally, Middleton's column this month features a Q&A with Roger Federer, in which the brunette beauty gets the scoop on what the athlete eats for breakfast as well as the Wimbledon Winners Ball afterparty.

Pippa's been an incredibly busy lady as of late, having recently started her own company in addition to her V.F. duties.

She's also reportedly planning her sister Kate Middleton's shower for the royal baby, due July 14.

Talk about a busy gal!
