WTA Malaysian Open 2011

March 6, 2011
Kuala Lumpur

Jelena Dokic of Australia clinched the 2011 BMW Malaysian Open title at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian & Country Club, here Sunday night.

It was a comeback victory for the former world number four Dokic, who outclassed Lucie Safarova of Czechoslovakia 2-6, 7-6(9), 6-4 in a stiff match that took 2 hours and 40 minutes to finish.

p/s: This is my first time shooting tennis, very hard and fast game to shoot. Delaying because of weather, the game drag until midnight, arrrgghhh very tired. But really enjoy the game but not really enjoy shooting it. The lighting is very bad, u need a better camera that can push the highest ISO. I have a chance to borrow Mark4-300mm from my fellow friends, but for short time of course. I wish I could have this one day.

I shoot using my old friends the EOS20d + Sigma 70-200mm, still can shoot but need to work very-very hard. I push to ISO800-1600 + f2.8 + 1/400s to freeze the action, but not really freeze. And with 3.5 fps, can you imagine how I click the shutter just to make sure the ball in frame. Work hard and prey for the luck. Sure you can, 90-150 minutes games play, a lot of thing u can learn, but don't try during the final game like me. Crazy.. But don't worry if u have a good camera. This is the story how I do it using my old friend. But why 20d from 2004 era? Because this is the only camera I have beside another very very very old friends, my EOS10d.

Some say it's not the camera, it's man behind the camera. But for me, both important. If I have a good camera, I'm sure I can make a better photo.

Hmmmm, why I'm writing all this thing? Hope someone will come to funding for new camera.. Hahahaha.. Enjoy the pix..
