I'd like to start a Sarasota pictures thread. This is going to be tough because it's such a small event. There's not much press there. Even the WTA didn't have any pictures from this event last year. So people bring your digital cameras and snap us a few shots please. I'll start with an image from last year's tournament of Paola Suarez -

as long as Kournikova stays in, there will be plenty of press

and who knows, she may get to the final (she got to a final last year at shanghai)

The final? I'll be happy if she gets to the second round :) GO ANNA!!!

the positive thoughts are appreciated, though

I remember your last year excellent photos of Yoon-Jong CHO and Ai Sugiyama :cool: .

I won't be attending this year. Last year was sort of a fluke for me. I had a Florida trip planned right at the time of the tournament, so I decided to take it in. Normally I go to tourneys in the southern California area. Went to Indian Wells a few weeks ago which was great (Qualies only). Next up for me are the Los Angeles and San Diego (Acura) events in July/Aug. L.A. will be interesting because it's been moved from the Manhattan Country Club to a new venue (which I know nothing about). Thanks for asking.

I had never heard of Cho when I shot her a year ago. She's done quite well for herself since then. Sugiyama is always very likeable. Ai and Kim Clijsters are great ambassadors for the game.

OK, I don't have a nice digital camera so bare with me. I tried to upload a .jpg file of Lina and I'm getting an error that my pic is 150092 bytes. How do I get it smaller?

Looks like they've increased the seating capacity since I attended last year. The picture below is of the CENTER COURT at Sarasota in 2002. It looks like the bleachers have more rows of seats this year in Meesh's picture.

Yes, Stadium is a whole new court. This year Grandstand 1 is what stadium was last year. Last year you literally had to climb over people to get to your seats. It was just a bunch of bleachers w/ numbers written on them with a Sharpee pen. It was really bad! I hope they keep improving. They have an awesome field this year!

Meesh

Wow, that picture was where I sat last year! Right in that corner. I was in the second row w/ no one in the first row!

Back of Marion Bartoli and Sybille Bammer. I need a digital camera! My poor camera is too big and loud and I was afraid to snap away during play for fear of Usher Police would take me away for being disruptive!

Meesh - if you're going to get a digital camera for sports photography, get one with a good, built-in zoom - like 10x optical. Olympus has several cameras with this feature. If you're shooting mostly for web pages, you don't need high rez. If you think you're going to want to make prints of you images, you'll need at least 3 megapixels. Since I only shoot for the web, my measly 1.3 megapixels gets the job done for me (Olympus E100rs). Digital cameras are much more convenient to carry around and, like you say, are much quieter than film cameras. You were being very polite to the players by not shooting during points. I've sat next to prof. photographers at many tournaments. They all shoot throughout a player's stroke, often using noisy motor drives.

caramel, I don't think we'll see any pictures from the WTA site. They didn't have any as well last year.

Shooter

The WTA didn't post ANY pictures from Sarasota last year either. I'm
guessing that's it's simply a matter of money. They probably feel that
they can't afford to send a photographer to every tournament. And
since Sarasota is one of the smaller events, it gets left out. But that's
just a guess. Maybe the Meadows Country Club doesn't want a lot of
pictures of its facilities appearing in the media?

Certainly there are tennis fans who would like to see pictures from
EVERY event. I like to see shots of players in action and candid shots
taken off the court too.

Well i know that Anna will never wear that yellow catsuit.

I was hopeing that Adidas will design somethign new for Anna to wear for the frech open, then just chaning the color of Anna Aussie open outfit. its like this every year. Anna aussie and french open outfit is always alike, just dif color and her Wimby and U.S. open is alike too, but with dif. color...

Anyone remember how last year at teh french open, the ball boy/girl wore the green and yellow outfit. Look like they bought the same concept to this outfit. I guess green and yellow pop out on red clay.

This is the 3rd year in a row that Anna wear yellow to teh french open. A total of 4 year from what I remember.

Nice pics from Sarasota. I knew it would be tough to get some from this tournament. What happened to Petrova? Looks like an injury. I see in the results that she had to forfeit her match against Myskina.
