Tennis Photos For Book

I have just signed a contract to compile a women's tennis reference book for a major publisher of renowned, scholarly reference books. My editor would like me to include a photo of each player included in the book. There will be approximately 50 players covered in the book. They will include both past and present champions. I am looking for a source for photos. If you can provide me with some of the photos I need (list of players available upon request) or know of someone who can, please let me know. I will acknowledge the source for each photo used in whatever way you wish. Thanks for your help.

Go to and type the player's name in the image search thing.

You could, if you wanted to get off the beaten path, check out some of the tournament threads, and look for posters who've taken their own photos of players. Granted some are obviously amateur work, but others (Linnie comes to mind) have some real quality stuff.

They may give you better rates than Getty, too.
