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!

Greetings from London! I’m lucky enough to be here for the next two weeks working as a photographer and videographer at the 2013 Championships Wimbledon. It’s great to be back here after shooting this tournament last year for the first time. I’m still a bit jet lagged, but it strangely feels like I never left.

The Championships don’t start until Monday, so today and tomorrow, I’m on the hunt for features and players getting themselves ready for play. I just so happened to run into the two biggest guys, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, out on the courts today. Here is the full gallery of my photos from the day. 

I’m really looking forward to seeing all the work produced our incredibly talented crew at wimbledon.com over the next two weeks. Stay tuned for more posts throughout the tournament, hopefully every day!
