PHOTOS: 2016 CONNECTICUT OPEN TENNIS – DAY 7.

Here are photos from my final day of the 2016 Connecticut Open. The day concluded with the men’s legends event, which featured Connecticut local and former top 10 player, James Blake, and John McEnroe. It’s always great to work with these guys. 

Now I’m back in Boston for more Red Sox baseball. I’m sad to be missing the final weekend in New Haven, but had a great time shooting for a great team full of very talented, hardworking individuals.

Until next time.

Another busy one today at the Connecticut Open! Today, the top seeded players met the media for All-Access hour, and the main draw began on Stadium Court. I’ve still got a ton of matches to shoot happening at the same time, but tomorrow should level out.

Here are the last images of an exciting week of tennis at the Connecticut Open at Yale University. Petra Kvitova continued her domination in New Haven, winning her second title in three finals appearances here. 

It’s always interesting to think about these tournaments after they’re complete. Each one has it’s own personality, quirks, and characters, and they’re all so different from each other. This one has a small tournament feel but with the star power and excitement of a bigger tournament, which I think is quite a nice balance. 

From a photo standpoint, it was essentially nonstop shooting for me over the last nine days. By now, I’ve learned that as the official tournament photographer, success is just as much about time management and good planning each day as it is about taking good pictures. It’s a responsibility that can be hectic at times, but one that I enjoy immensely. 

As usual, the experience is only as good as the people you work with, and I’m grateful to have such great people to partner with. Our web and digital team of Matt Van Tuinen, Stephen Villatoro, Nick McCarvel, Lauren Foley, and Craig Gabriel is among the best in the business. I’m also thankful to tournament director Anne Worcester and the rest of the tournament staff for their efforts and for giving me the opportunity to shoot. 

Now I’m back in Boston to finish out the 2014 Red Sox season. It goes on!

Things are getting exciting around here at the grounds of the All England Club, as we’ve reached finals weekend. Today, I was tasked with shooting practice sessions for all four singles finalists in the morning. Above are a few scenes from those practices. 

I was also assigned to get down to Centre Court for the trophy presentations following the championship match between Eugenie Bouchard and Petra Kvitova. With a bit of luck, I was able to get on court for match point, and happened to be positioned with a clean view of Kvitova’s reaction. These are my favorites from the end of the match. It’s always a thrill to witness special moments like these. 

Here and here are two galleries with some more scenes from the day.
