    Nice work, Old Timer. That second to last one is great! Have you shot tennis before? I'm wondering what the special challenges might be. I've never shot it and I know every sport has it's own particular set of problems. This certainly doesn't have the lighting issues that basketball does

    First ime ever shooting tennis. The biggest challenge to me was the timing as in almost all sports.

    Are you a tennis player? I know it makes a big difference if you actually participate in the sport because it gives you a better understanding of the timing and allows you to better predict the action.

    PJ , in my thirties I tried my hand at playing a little and watched a lot on TV back then, but for the last several years no tennis at all. The university contacted me about getting some pics for them and I figured it was a great opportunity to get reacquainted with the game.
