Here are some photos from my second day out at the 2017 BNP Paribas Open.
It feels good to be through the middle weekend here at Indian Wells, which was packed with lots of incredible tennis action. I shot a good balance of tennis and fan and around the grounds features yesterday. Here’s a selection.
On to some more good tennis this week!
Rain held up lots of play late this afternoon, so we had a relatively slow fourth day of the tournament. There wasn’t much tennis shooting to be done, so here’s an assortment of photos I snapped.
We’ve arrived at the final days of the tournament, so here are the best photos from yesterday’s men’s semifinal matches and men’s and women’s doubles championships.
There was so much drama on court, which made for great emotion and energy. Today, we’ve got the men’s and women’s singles final, so be sure to check back for the winning photos!
A bit of a slower day yesterday, as Samantha Stosur and Victoria Azarenka, two of the hot tickets in the women’s draw, pulled out of the tournament due to injuries. Those developments left us with a bit of downtime, which was a nice change of pace from the constant grind this tournament has been so far.
It also gave me a chance to recuperate before the much anticipated match between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Although the match didn’t turn out to be one of the classics like they’ve had so many times before, the energy in the stadium was still high and it was a lot of fun to shoot. More to come soon from that match.
Thanks for looking. Enjoy the photos!
Day 6 is in the books, and it was really, really hot. I was all over the place, and shot a ton of tennis. Tried to get a nice mix of high, low, tight, and wide shots. I’m loving how colorful the photo opportunities on court are here.
Here is a link to our series of photo galleries from day six.
Another day coming up!
