Tennis NIght in Gotham - The Pictures

by Savannah

As you see I am far from a professional photographer. I posted the pictures in order and provide the names of the people in the pictures where possible.

You never knew when a player was going to decide to walk in your direction and you'd have a chance at a picture. Venus was the most accommodating in this regard. Ana and Jelena stayed on the other side of the court. Serena had a running conversation going with some people to my left and if she came close that was where she went. That is why there are so few pictures of Serena and Ana. I did get some of Jelena. There was no slight intended it was just a rough night to take action pictures.

And next time I won't be so scared of moving around.
