First time shooting tennis and with additional challenges. The weather was cloudy and have to push ISO beyond 1600 to freeze the fast action. Later it was raining and have to pack the camera. A challenge for stamina and passion. The game starts on 4pm and finish at 9pm. In between abt 3 hrs interrupted few times by rain. Long hour play has defeated Eleni Daniilidou. She played in the morning as well to continue yesterday suspended game due to rain as well. I saw her frustrated emotion from my pictures. Ms Hsieh also almost exhausted for the long wait of rain stopping. Finally Hsieh wins by 6-0, 4-6, 6-1.
Many bad comments to organizer since the outdoor play is not suitable for this raining season. Somehow this year is raining more and unpredictable. Jelena Jankovic and Petra Martic match was postponed later that night because of rain, again 😦
