There will be more on ikeTennis.com (http://www.iketennis.com), and hopefully anytime soon but first some Internet connections will have to be solved (it's painstakingly slow at the venue).

Canon 7D and 30D, lenses 70-200mm and 400mm. I also carry a 16-35mm amd a 28-70mm, but haven‘t used them here (yet). BTW, all with a max aperture of f/2.8.
I visit not as many tournaments as I want to.

Not much this time, I was at the draw ceremony (pictures here (http://iketennis.com/tour-photos/item/629-bad-gastein-draw-ceremony.html)) so I missed the first couple of matches.

The main draw ceremony pics are amazing, so beautiful there! :yeah:

But we also need match reports (Domachowska, Evtimova, Njiric and Kichenok sisters), please! ;)

Rix643
Jul 10th, 2011, 08:32 PM
I don't really have time (or the knowledge according to a certain player) to do match reports, I'm more busy getting the pictures right (and fail miserably at times) to analyse the match. Found Jurikova a bit of a pusher though....

Anyway, more pictures of the qualification weekend in Bad Gastein can be found here (http://iketennis.com/tour-photos/item/632-2011-bad-gastein-photospecial-qualifiers.html).
