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.
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.
Not a lot of opportunities to make art today. With 21 matches to cover over six courts, it was all about efficiency and checking shots off the list. These are about as stock as it gets when it comes to tennis. It was a good day though!
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.
