A brilliant idea for a thread, thanks for starting it!
The inherent gracefulness of the sport of tennis does make for stunning photo moments, it's great having a thread to be able to appreciate that in.
And though most(uhm, 90%?)
of the photos I find beautiful that I have saved are of Roger
, I do have a few of the non-Fedal variety.
Some are more interesting because they capture a moment rather than beautiful, but they've all made me stop and take notice for some reason.
in RG'09 SF - the torture of clay
, last year, I think in Miami?
This one captures the frustration of the moment perfectly.
I really like the lights in this one, it lends itself to photoshop manipulation beautifully. Santoro
in AO '99. You can almost feel the AO heat in there.
Can't find it without the watermark.
Also, pretty much EVERY SINGLE
photo taken at last year's Madrid event, by a photographer whose flickr I can't find anymore.
It made the Madrid venue look like indoor clay theatre.
This one is one of my favourites:
(It's Djokovic, if you can't recognize those blue shoes immediately. )
