Ramírez-Hidalgo between the legs trick shot
I've never seen this one before, it's brilliant.
Great selection of photos.
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.
I always felt like the pros were like caged animals when they are surrounded by fence practicing - this kind of illustrates my theory:
I never thought about it that way, but now that you point it out, I can see it.
And a great photo to illustrate.
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.
I was wondering how long before this one shows up...
I'm glad the DC pic gates have been opened already.
