I was asked to photograph the Boston leg of the 2012 Powershares Tennis Tour, which brings former World No. 1  tennis players together on the same court in cities across the country. 

In attendance yesterday were Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl, and Jim Courier, who share 33 grand slam titles between themselves. 

A delay in the tennis court surface’s arrival made for a very long night, but as a tennis fan, this was a fun event to shoot. It’s not every day that you get to hang with the best tennis players of all time.
