The pic threads here are a good start, but is there a tennis photo site that has the latest tournament images? I know G*tty has some, and Reuters, and Viewimages, but ....anything that's tennis-specific?

Have you ever heard that Google doesn't update its indexing for six months at a time?

Think before you post.

www.sports.yahoo.com Type your player name and it will appear pictures of his most recent matches ;)

3 pages, chronologically arranged from April 18 through the end of May. The latest pictures will be on the last page.:bounce::bounce:

Everyone is trying to win an argument---sooner or later, hopefully, someone will quote my first post, decipher the confusing array of nicknames and add five or ten more players, and there will be a post you can add to favorites, and find your favorite players' latest pictures, along with others, in less than 20 seconds.

can some one find Hantuchova's last pictures of her playing in a match?

http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=12842636&postcount=242

page 17 of 19---but that is ok---I enjoyed the pictures of her practicing.

Yahoo! Sports - Tennis is where I go to for recent photos.

Agree with the people saying Yahoo Sports. They update that for new pictures when the match they are from is still going on at times.

OK, never mind about the Google image search. You guys are right---no recent pics :tape:

I put it in my favorites. But the strengths of what is available on this site include the chronological arrangement, and often the off court, or press conference pictures, as well as the on court.

I will just as add a couple names from time to time for me, if no one else. The collections here are great---the labels making it so hard to find them are a real problem for me. Maybe for no one else. I apologize.

At this site people post their own pics. You can't get those anywhere else.
Look at Dushevina's picture thread, you won't find those at Yahoo.
You can also check the tournament forums, some people post in there.

I remember a USO 2 or 3 years ago, there were dozens of great photos from the qualies in the tournament forum

The player sections have photo threads that seem to be current when I check them out. Many people avoid GM because . . . .

And they are organized, and easy to find, without confusing nicknames, and sometimes geographical confusion?

Thanks for the suggestions. I went wrong with the title---I should have said Is there a simple way to organize this site's individual player's pictures collections.

The daylife and yahoo and other places are able to give you the latest match pictures--I will use them---but the collections here are very extensive and organized---it is easy to check the latest, or compare what they looked like a year or two ago, both on and off the court. Maybe not perfect, but very valuable---and for me---often hard to locate because of the titles of the threads.

I keep editing the first post---I have 12 links for 9 players to the collections from this site. Maybe I will rearrange them neatly in alphabetical order some time.

But feel free to lecture me about how useless it is, or tell me how much better it is to go somewhere else. It would be nice if someone would do what ivanban did--help me with someone like JJ--but I won't hold my breath. I have already used this several times to locate times and places for various players.
