I don’t have much time to write for this post, but it’s been an amazing, incredibly busy, memorable first week here at Wimbledon. Here’s a look at the action I saw around the grounds on Day Six.

Tomorrow is middle Sunday, which means the tennis takes a rest and so do I. Back for another week on Monday!

It was a bit of a strange day here in SW19. At the moment, I can think of at least eight players from both the men’s and women’s side of the main draw retired or withdrew from the tournament due to injuries. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Maria Sharapova are among several out by the second round. It’s certainly something I’ve never seen before.

But despite all the weirdness on court, the tournament goes on and there’s still plenty to shoot off court. Since there was some downtime during matches today, I tried to document the moments happening outside of tennis.

Thanks for looking, and goodbye until tomorrow!

Things really picked up here on Day Two of the Championships. Matches aside, there were what seemed like endless events, appearances, and happenings around the grounds.

Here are my favorites from the day. By now, I’ve shot several major tennis tournaments, but there are days when I still need to pinch myself. It’s a bit surreal being so close to so many well known people.

Until tomorrow!

It’s hard to believe, but we’re already half way through this year’s tournament. I’m absolutely beat from today, so I’m not going to type much here.

There’s lots of creative photo galleries up on usopen.org, which you can check out here.

Back to the grind tomorrow!
