Thanks, I hadn't seen the WTT photo (and I've been looking everywhere for them). The other three photos you posted are new, the large one is copyright Tom Cullis (May 2008), the two smaller ones were taken by Jason Keefer (Feb 2008). :)

Okay - here are my pictures from a small exhibition I mentioned in the other thread. I'll also write a little report. :) Due to the file type of these pictures I can't put them as attachments so I'll just post the pictures with the report interspersed...

The players at this event were:
Jan-Michael Gambill
Justin Gimelstob
Glenn Michibata
Nathan Healey
Nima Roshan
Josh Cohen

Before the event began Jan-Michael Gambill was warming up with Nima Roshan:

Then a pro-set of doubles was played - Gambill didn't take part. He did play singles with Gimelstob afterwards though. I don't remember the score or even who won because the atmosphere was so fun that the winner was completely irrelevant. Gimelstob and Gambill were talking, joking, with the audience and with each other - and of course showing off some very nice tennis. Very enjoyable. :)


















More to come...

Towards the end of the set they played (I believe it went to a tiebreaker) the sky looked sure to rain. Afterwards it did rain a bit, and it was raining lightly when Gimelstob helped run a small, charity-based auction. Then it was announced that the next doubles set would be played at an indoor sports club about 5 minutes away. By this point, after the rain, only the true, loyal tennis fans remained :p The few of us made our way to the same courts where many of us play tennis ourselves, and sat on the ground or in chairs next to the middle of three courts and watched JMG and Roshan take on Gimelstob and Nathan Healey. Again - the score was so irrelevant that I've completely forgotten it :lol: I think Gimelstob and Healey won though. :scratch: Anyway, inside it was nearly impossible to take pictures...


There's where they had them playing :rolls:


Gimelstob kept looking over at me when I was taking pictures - must've thought I was a stalker :lol:











Overall the whole day was very fun and there was a lot of nice tennis watched. :)

Hope you enjoyed reading and seeing my pictures! I know this isn't exactly an active part of MTF and I know I probably spent way too much time on this (resizing, saving, uploading, posting all the pics :lol:) but I enjoy this kind of thing, and even if just one person reads this I won't mind. :p

:wavey:

Thanks Neenah. I really enjoyed your reports and your photos. Can I put some of these on JMG's myspace page? Just let me know how you want me to credit them if it's okay with you. :)

He has not retired, he just has no ranking so he can only play when he gets wildcards.

Oh yikes, I didn't realize the Phil Collum shoot had been posted here. Horrible photos, really lazy work from him that added nothing to his portfolio.
