    HI guys,
    I switched from playing Tennis (since childhood) to volleyball 15 years ago BUT this week I have been shooting (TV cameraman) at the ATP world tour here in Indian Wells and have been shooting and watching some of the most amazing Tennis ever. I hope some of you are watching on TV.
    We shot and I got to meet such players as Andy Roddick, Rafael Nadal, Roger fedderer and David Fair and more.

    All are in amazing shape but most are a a bit arrogant.... so much for "The Gentlemen's Sport" icon_smile.gif

    This is really quite a privilege despite the heat in the day and cold at night. icon_smile.gif more to come.

    Ron~

    You're lucky to watch them up close and personal. Meeting them in person that must be exciting. I would love to meet them despite their arrogance. Hope you don't get hit by a tennis ball serve from those professionals...

    Thanks, Hobbes.
    The last match I shot was between Rafael Nadal and David Nalbadian, Weds night until 2 AM !
    It was incredibly exciting with Nalbandian totally dominating until 3 set with a tie breaker. Nadal's great physical training won in the end.day.jpgnght.jpg

    AHA!
    So you are the cameraman who never zooms in on the players' asses!
    I'm surprised you can't hear me screaming at the TV, "zoom in god dammit, zoom in now!"

    Anyway, I am very envious of you. I would kill to be a cameraman there. Kill! icon_evil.gif
