Beautiful, when concentrated…

Versmold ’16

Amazing staff at the ‘Reinert Open’

Daily #060
Hechingen ’17

Both Morderger twins playing simultaneously on two different courts.

Katharina Gerlach

Yep, it’s her birthday today…

Daily #058
Nuremberg ’17

Teamwork

Daily #057
Stuttgart ’17

The players needed quite some patience during the amazingly bombastic and yet a bit lengthy opening ceremony.

Daily #056
Luxemburg ’16

Two women,
two jobs

Daily #055
Strycova | Van Uytvanck

Concentration before the match

Nuremberg ’17

Responsible job

Nuremberg ’17

Everybody was shocked, when they carried injured Laura Siegemund to the ambulance.

Daily #049
Prague ’16

Tennis ambience.

Daily #048
Katharina Gerlach

Solid gold!

Daily #047
Viktorija Golubic

No antlers

Men at work

Versmold ’17

Tennis teacher and coach Ute Strakerjahn with a new student.

Daily #044
Stuttgart ’17

Tennis is life.

Daily #043
Strasbourg ’16

All the action needed and done swiftly, precisely and so often voluntarily!

Daily #042
Patty Schnyder

Something in the air.

Daily #041
Nuremberg ’17

A good event needs a lot of preparation.

Daily #040
Stuttgart ’17

Don’t get the joke.

Daily #039
Ana Ivanovic

Never ever saw a chair umpire change his/her mind in such a situation. Yet many players still seem to believe they have a ghost of a chance to succeed here. Or is it just about venting of frustration?

Daily #038
Vickery | Muhammad

‘Frienemies’.

Daily #037
Luxemburg ’16

On several occasions I could see how fond Stefanie Voegele is of children.

Daily #036
Nuremberg ’17

Online shopping.

Daily #035
Camila Giorgi

Father-daughter bond.

Daily #034
Judy Murray

This famous tennis mother seems to be a bit harsh, but I do believe that deep inside she is a warm-hearted person. As musician I had to do with several Brits and Scots who had some difficulties in showing their soft sides to the public.

Daily #033
Nuremberg ’17

Kids have to show adults the right way sometimes.

Daily #032
Versmold ’17

Karolina Muchova watching a dice game during some rain delay.

Daily #031
Darmstadt ’16

Each tournament needs a guy like this one who takes responsibility for the courts from dawn ’til dusk.

Daily #030
Anna Zaja

OUT!

Daily #029
Lena Rueffer

Intense. And focused.

Daily #028
Prague ’16

Lovely scene, isn’t it.

Daily #027
Anhelina Kalinina

Often it’s interesting to have the player’s mothers (or fathers) in the background of the practice courts.

Daily #026
Murray | Rittner | Reichel

Nuremberg tournament director Sandra Reichel adorably suffers some pretty close to insulting remarks of a sponsor dealing with her many phone calls to reach the best for the event.

Daily #023
Sorana Cirstea

Two lives

Daily #022
Rosmalen ’16

So often one can see people looking for lost balls at the smaller ITF level. Here it happened on a bigger WTA event as well.

Daily #022
Patty Schnyder

She’s not only looking very young in this photo from Linz ’16, one even is tempted to ‘photoshop’ (albeit in my case it’d be ‘gimp’) her some tinker bell wings. The sign on the wall almost does that job.

Daily #021
Naomi Osaka

Not only quite a talent, she is a really ardent player as well. Stunning, how calm her face always remains, even in the midst of the heftiest action.

Daily #020
Putintseva | Kasatkina

Rivals…

Daily #019
Sceptical and perhaps a little flattered

This WTA supervisor, realizing that my tele lens is interested in her, seems to be a little indifferent, on the fence between doubt and gratification. Yes, one can be beautiful beyond one’s twenties or thirties…

Daily #018
Högstedt | Bouchard

A shaman at work

Daily #017
Francesca Schiavone

How splendid the news that this amazing athlete and person decided to continue for another year.

Daily #016
Petra Krejsova

Nice ‘clay skating’ of the charismatic Czech.

Daily #015
Camila Giorgi

Pretty windy sometimes in cozy Eastbourne

Daily #014
Anna Karolina Schmiedlova

Three assets in this one > Good motion, ‘racket veil’ and closed eyes, which to me often have something meditative, somnambulistic or poetic.

Daily #013
Sara Sorribes Tormo

The old game > Chasing the woman.

Daily #011
Pribylova | Haas

Not very often one can find synchronicity like that, especially with two players resembling each other so much.

Daily #010
Prague ’16

Little man, big wall.

Daily #009
Arantxa Rus

Not having to follow any ‘market rules’ I enjoy the freedom to chose perspectives like this one from time to time, which almost reflects the player’s point of view.

Daily #008
Morderger Twins

It’s not as easy to take good twin pictures as one should presume. The ambivalence of tranquility and action in this one I am quite happy with. Regard the beautiful summer eve’s light setting

Daily #007
Solace

What a nice gesture of Viktorija Golubic towards injured Garbine Muguruza last year in Linz. For the spectators that ‘interruptus’ was a pity as it was a very good match with a magnificient Swiss being in the key position.

Daily #006
Genie Army

Nice approach, fashion-wise. Unfortunately their idol just had retired due to knee injury. But real Bouchard fans always keep cool. The thoughts and feelings not so romantic anymore, though. Which probably is a pity.

Daily #005
Waiting for an autograph

How coy and finely he’s waiting for Genie B. to become aware of him. One can almost see his heart throbbing! Felt remembered of all those mega-romantic thoughts and feelings I used to have at that age.

Daily #004
Eastbourne ’16

In this snapshot of course the ‘hichcockian’ bird is the main eye catcher. But by the different facial expressions of the spectators this also is an impressive allegory on how varying we all are in terms of our general reactions.

Daily #003
Oksana Kalashnikova (with Misaki Doi)

Seems to have alighted directly from a Vermeer painting. Never saw her play singles. By the positive and cooperative way she’s listening to her partner’s suggestions one can imagine, why so many players like to team up with her for doubles action.

Daily #002
Carina Witthoeft
A hanseatic uptown girl… …powerful and pure on court
Daily #001
Judy Murray
A woman in charge
