Photos: 2016 Connecticut Open Tennis – Day 1.

I’m here in New Haven, Connecticut for the next six days to shoot the Connecticut Open WTA tennis tournament at the Yale University Tennis Center. I’ve shot this tournament several times now, so it’s all familiar territory for me. It’s nice to have a bit of variety in the middle of the baseball season while the Red Sox are away. 

I’m easing in to it today. These are just a few photos of the draw ceremony with Canadian player, Eugenie Bouchard, and some quick action from qualifying rounds. 

More to come over the next few days.

Lots of activity on the grounds yesterday at the BNP Paribas Open. The day began with an exciting doubles match on the brand new stadium 2 featuring fellow countrymen Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka. 

Not much more time to post, but these are the highlights!
