AO 2009




I always felt like the pros were like caged animals when they are surrounded by fence practicing - this kind of illustrates my theory:

This picture just oozes disappointment, sadness, loneliness after some dreadful defeat. Great job by the photographer (even if I think Dmitri himself might not be as pleased with is as the artistically-inspired watchers of this picture )

The other side of the coin for Dima. This was after he defeated Roddick in a dramatic five setter to advance to the finals in the DC.



And they say the Spanish show too much men-love!

It was a mixed feeling. I was going to save that kiss for the finals if we won, but when Igor ran out onto the court after my match and I saw his golden locks fluttering through the air, “Dancing Queen” by ABBA rang in my head. It was so romantic!!! All I heard was, “Dancing quuueeeen…..” and time froze still! Our lips locked, dizziness filled my entire body and I felt like I was floating on air. I bet Mark Wahlberg knows exactly what I mean. It’s a feeling that money can’t buy, “Anybody could be that guuuuuuy…Night is young and the music’s hiiiiigh… with a bit of rock music, everything is fine…” I could have played another five-setter after that scene, “…Only seventeeeeen… feel the beat from the tamboooouriiiineeen… Oh yeaaaaah…”
Dima wrote that on his blog

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Spectacular photos. Thanks!

And I love this one ... so ominous, it looks like it's straight from an Ingmar Bergman movie ...

The Tursunov one is very telling, definitely.
I recall reading many articles about how life on tour is only remotely "glamorous" if you're around the top50,
outside of that it's just grind and a lot of disappointment, particularly on the Challenger and Futures circuits,
and that photo encapsulates that pretty well.

Great observation.
I never thought about it that way, but now that you point it out, I can see it.
And a great photo to illustrate.

I was wondering how long before this one shows up...
I'm glad the DC pic gates have been opened already.
