My Estoril Open pics

Time to embarrass myself by posting the pics I took at Estoril Open. Since they were taken with a cheap 6 megapixels camera, all of these had to be selected, cropped and resized to look even halfway decent. This took some time, so it's only now that I'm posting them.

If you're thinking of complaining that these pics are crap, bear in mind that you're not telling me anything that I do not know already.

Want good Estoril Open photos? You can find them here:

Part 1: portraits

Not many of these.



Mandy Minella. Taken late afternoon, the day before qualifying began.



Vesnina



Ondraskova



Camerin (she was listening to her iPod, but kindly removed her phones so I could snap this)



Azarenka (my ugly mug cropped out of the picture so as not to give you nightmares)



Azarenka again, with her Portuguese coach António van Grichen

Maret Ani







Yulia Beygelzimer



Eva Birnerova



Katerina Bohmova

Unofficially elected the "sex symbol" (sic) of the tournament by the press - this in a tournament that included Dulko and Pennetta.

Loads of pics of her; Court 1 was the best place to take pics.

Note her Golovinesque gait on this one:

Maria Elena Camerin

Petite, feisty and adorable.







Flavia Pennetta

Not many pics of Pennetta; she played exclusively on Court Central, where you have to sit kms away from the players and it's nearly impossible to get even decent pics with a crap camera like my own.

Wherever she went, Flavia had men bowing and kneeling before her:













Gisela Dulko

Didn't make it to the Ace Hot List top 10. The judging panel must be gay, blind, or both.









The scorching doubles team of Gisela Dulko and Maria Sanchez Lorenzo

Managed to reach the final even though they had never played together before.



Conchita Martinez Granados



Natalia Gussoni

Quite possibly the closest thing the WTA has to a 100% pure claycourt expert.



Mathilde Johansson

Yaroslava Shvedova





Laura Pous Tio

Moonballer extraordinaire.





Shikha Uberoi

Neha was here as well, but played only doubles.



Elena Vesnina

Loads of pics again. I'll leave it to you to guess why.























Ana Vrljic

Tomboyish and skilled. Her smooth game is a delight to watch.



Jie Zheng

Great shots!
Some of them taken from exactly the same point as mine, we must have been seated very close to each other!

Merci Amélie!
