Roland Garros starts next week and im going 4 days should I take a camera?

I plan on taking a camera for the first time this year at Roland Garros. Any insights on juniors to look for? If anybody would like any photos of a favourite or specific player cause they cant attend tournaments let me know? If i see a player you need a photo of, maybe i could be of assistance.

Im also wondering if the players mind photos. is it ok to take a few photos while they train? what about if they are just walking by. Any insights? Id Hate to bother or distract a player before a match or otherwise. Please resond if you have any advice.

you should definitely take your camera!! on the question of whether it's ok to take photos at a particularly moment, just rely on your common sense and see how the players react-- if they are annoyed, i am sure they'll let you know somehow. i've always taken my camera to tournaments and never had any problems-- i was never once asked -by players, their minders or officials- to cease taking pictures.

have a nice time at RG and hope you will share your impression of the tournament (daily reports would be nice ) and post your pics as well!

No, you should bring canvas and paint to capture the good time. More original!

Thank you.

How do you think all the press gets their pictures during a match, or while training? I think players are pretty used to it. Take pictures. No flash, of course. Unless you WANT to get noticed,haha! Enjoy your time there, lucky bastard, you! ;-)

Don't take a camera.

Stay at home and give me your ticket.

Oh I forgot I'm working so forget that plan. Have fun and use the flash to distract Monica's opponents.
