Sharapova

When I woke up Sunday morning I didn't realize I would be photographing one of the sexiest women in tennis. One of the perks of the job (not photographing gorgeous woman, although that is a bonus) is not knowing exactly what I'm doing on any given day.

Star Photographer Rick Eglinton was working the assignment desk and asked me to photograph two Canadians who were in qualifying. When those matches finished and the photos were filed, I let Rick know that Sharapova was practicing around 4 p.m.. He asked me to stay and take a couple of snaps. At this point in the day, I realized that wearing long sleeves on a 30 degrees plus day was not a good idea.

The photo pit grew by at least four photographers when Sharapova took the court. It was a bit odd. Here we were, at least 10 photographers following every move she made. Remember, we're talking about practice. In the end, she practiced for about an hour and a half and I filed about 15 frames. Here are a few.
