My Tennis Photography Blog

Hello,

Not sure if this is the right place to post this (please feel free to move it) but since I've finally made a bit more of an effort with it, I thought I'd share my Tennis photography blog here.

You can find it at http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.com

I have already been reporting from Queens this week and hope to also report (mostly through photos but with some comments) from Wimbledon Qualies and Main Draw.

My reports so far:

Roland Garros 2nd Monday- including Gasquet/Wawrinka match hehttp://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...o-magical.html

Queens Monday- http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...s-day-one.html

Queens Tuesday-http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...s-day-two.html

Queens Thursday- http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...nis-day-4.html


Hope you enjoy them.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++

Re: My Tennis Photography Blog

Thank you, glad you enjoyed them.^^^

OK, last week I have been enjoying a very long and busy week attending the World Tour Finals where I saw every Singles and Doubles player play and a lot at practise too.

Here is my photoblog of the first day (Monday), which features Berdych, Wawrinka, Del Potro, Gasquet and Marrero/Verdasco:

http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...onday-4th.html

This photoblog shows an overview of all Singles players and Doubles teams entered...

Plenty more practise and random match pictures to come. I saw a lot of tennis this week, hope you'll enjoy.

Re: My Tennis Photography Blog

Hello,

Another entry to my blog...this is Part 1 of my practise court/training session adventures featuring Federer and Berdych and can be viewed here
http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...orld-tour.html

Part 2 to come, with Djokovic, Gasquet, Wawrinka...no decent Nadal or Ferrer ones unfortunately and never saw Del Potro practise. There are some Doubles teams too to come.

I also made another more random entry that is basically a photo spam of most of the times I saw Wawrinka since I got a digital camera in 2007-2013. Some good stuff for any Stan fans and includes a lot from this year's Tour Finals too.

You're welcome all. Always loved Federer in a backwards cap myself.

This next blog of World Tour Finals features mostly Djokovic, Gasquet and Wawrinka but some other players/doubles teams. It's been up for a couple of weeks but forgot to come back and share here.

Anyway it's at http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...d-tour_19.html

Re: My Tennis Photography Blog

It's been a while but I've finally seen my first live tennis of 2014. Last week I attended Queens tournament on Sunday-Thursday (except Monday) and I also went to Wimbledon Qualifying yesterday so thought I'd share.

Sunday and Tuesday of Queens are already up with Wednesday and Thursday to come.

Sunday Practises and Qualifying Queens here:

http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...ifier-and.html

Tuesday at Queens here:

http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...sday-10th.html


Monday 1st round of Wimbledon Qualifying (judging by today's results I jinxed a couple of players with positive reports )

http://tennisandmycamera.blogspot.co...pton-mens.html

Lots more to come with Wednesday at Eastbourne and Thursday's Wimbledon Qualifiers. Then slowly the main draw Wimbledon stuff. Enjoy.

Looks like you upgraded your camera?

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: My Tennis Photography Blog

Unfortunately had to miss the last day of Qualifying today but have Eastbourne report from yesterday to come and of course Wimbledon main draw.

I wish! Only in my dreams.

No, I still use the same bottom of the range Nikon D3100 with the basic Nikon zoom lens.
