Glimpses From The Tennis Tournament in Memphis

2011.02.21
pixel
The hand of the lady sitting in front of me ...
pixel
The ceremony before the men's final...
pixel
Getting ready...
pixel
Singing the National Anthem...
pixel
Here's Andy, again...
pixel
....playing against a young Canadan phenom from Bosnia, Milos Raonic...
pixel
Remember the line judge who dared to call a foot fault against Serena Williams a couple of years ago? Serena threatened to shove the tennis ball down her throat...among other things. She is still watching those lines and has escaped Serena's wrath, so far...
pixel
Here are the prosessional nuts, they have an excuse, though... they make a living out of this...
pixel
Huge serves, regularly in the 145 miles per hour range... live it looks very different, TV slows it down somehow...
pixel
Acquaintances in the crowd! Some got more pleasure out of watching each other than the game... LOL
pixel
Very tight match, and a memorable, diving match point scoring from Andy!
pixel
Oops, he caught me taking his picture...
pixel
Milos was a little disappointed...
pixel
Andy was gracious giving a lot of credit to the young Canadian in his victory speech.

danrav Great shots Agnes. I just love that you captured the hand of the woman. It is so typical of a photo nut. Everything a potential shot! Her hand looks rather unenergized! Was the rest of her more alive with the excitement of the tournament! Nice manicure from what little I know about manicures! I am not a tennis follower so I will assume that there are some famous players and fans in your collection.

MoMac great set love the 8th where the spectators are looking in one direction and the cameras pointing in the opposite direction. Did you watch the game or were you too busy taking photos? :)

RayNvb I would love to see a professional match. I need to add that to the bucket list.

stormfish this blog post could also be a riddle: "bookmark the one picture that doesn't fit into the series!" - no seriously, throw all the tennis nonsense pics away and keep that one of the hand - it's outstanding :-)

liveandletlive Well, tennis isn't really my thing Agi but these are great photos. I agree with stormfish ^up there^ The hand is awesome.

DancingDolphin I've not been to a pro tennis match but there is one here in Palm Springs and some of our friends are insisting that it's a great time. Seeing your photos makes me think maybe so!

djnana I feel as if I were there - you captured it all, Agnes! Lovely candid shots and great commentary on the event. I thought #8 was interesting, since the crowd was looking to their right in the shot, but all the cameras were focused to their left!

nataliemanco awesome report....and great "hand capture" among the rest

wildduck Hű de jó kis riport!

????? The hand is so representative of the kind of socialites I lived among in Alabama.

elisabethwarren The hand shot has lots of character and subtle details.

JustGarden Thanks for sharing, Agnes. Like the guy yawning in #6.
