Mülheim an der Ruhr, 10/7/22 – So what I will do this week is skip the detailed tennis coverage and concentrate on presenting some of my photos instead. Clicking on an image will open the lightbox, which you can browse manually by using the right and left arrow keys of your keyboard. Or you can start and stop a slideshow with the buttons in the upper right corner. I’ll add pics to this post on an irregular basis for all the next week, so check back from time to time to have a look. If something mentionable happens on or around the tennis courts I’ll find some words for it as well.

14/7/22 – Three surprises in Budapest today. Krunic beats Zhang by 61 60. Wang Xiyu defeats Bogdan by 762 7610. And Cocciaretto gets the better of Siniakova, 75 46 75.

17/7/22 – Two things. First of all I’ve decided to stick with this photo post until the US Open, which I am looking forward to covering with score lists and comments again. Right now it’s really fun to rummage my folders for what after editing is not ‘just’ black and white any longer, but colour and experiments as well, as you might have realized. And I have to admit that I am not so into commenting results. Probably during the last days I already missed one or two developments which would have been worthy to report. Sorry for that.

So, just enjoy the photos and have a good time!

P.S.: As this post grows longer and longer here’s a → link to the daily ‘newcomers’.

The penultimate collaboration between those two. After the following French Open Sam Stosur and long-time coach David Taylor parted company. It had been in the press, everyone except me was aware of that. In the photos from that tournament you can feel mutual sadness and the brave attempt to gloss over it.

Horst, a pro fellow sports photographer, told me yesterday, that he prefers it to be overcast. Well, he’s used to take advantage of all the cozy automatization skills of his premium camera. Results like this here depicting Nicola Geuer in a mixed light situation are only possible by doing everything manually. To me that’s the challenge. I also never use the motor but just take single shots instead. It’s all about synchronizing oneself. And to be swift with the parameters.

Eva Lys (r.) with Noma Noha Akugue. Right now a good match between her and Jule Niemeier in Lausanne. Of course players like her have every right to dress a bit more sexily if that takes her fancy. No man has the right to deny her that. A bit unfair though, that the motives of a photographer, who may be mainly interested in her tennis, are inescapably at the mercy of everyone’s bias and suspicion.

Katharina Lehnert (l.) and Patty Schnyder played doubles together during that week. Giving the competitors of this solitary sport the opportunity of teaming up on a weekly basis in more or less frequently changing constellations is such a wise construction. One of the many many things that have me love this sport.
