Who will be in Miami for the Sony Ericsson Open? I will be there for the first weekend of the event (March 24-27). I will take a lot of photos and post my best shots right here. Let me know if you have any special requests. Photos of lesser known players for example. I'll do my best to find them. Can't wait! :-)

Is this your first time coming down? If so, welcome. Hope you have fun. I go for the first week each year. You'll have a great time. Excellent photo ops, both in matches and practices. Unlike at other tournaments, the practice courts are open and accessible, and you can get up close to the players. Usually they are more than willing to sign autographs and pose for pics. Getting close to Fed and Nadal is a crapshoot, however. Good luck with that.

Here's some stuff from past years:


Bring lots of sunscreen!

It's not my first time. I've been there a couple of times (in 2007 and 2008). It's a great tournament. Usually nice weather, a little windy sometimes. And yes I really like the face that almost all practice courts are open. I spend a lot of time on these practice courts to take pictures.

Nice pictures! Yes, it can get a bit breezy, but it's an island! ;) It does make for some cool nights, though.

Some pics of Ajla Tomljanovic would be awesome. She got a MDWC. There are no recent pics or vids of her so that would be just great.
If you donīt manage to catch her thank you for the other pics and of course for sharing them with us generally. :D :D
Have fun! :yeah:
