Unhappy Carol Newsom

Not sure if this has been noted, but legendary photographer Carol Newsom passed away recently, just prior to being inducted into the USTA New England Hall of Fame. This is sad news because she was the first female to have a Centre Court photographer's credential at Wimbledon, was THE official photographer of the Virginia Slims Tour for 10 years, and ALWAYS appeared to me to have an enthusiasm for her work... even if I never met her this passion for tennis always seemed to come through in her photographs and what I read and heard of her.

This is very sad news and I am informed she will have a Tennis Week tribute soon- thank you for your contributions, Carol

Sorry to hear the news Grafiati. I wonder what years she was an official Slims photographer.
