With Roland Garros past and thoughts of grass now dancing in every tennis fans' head..... I thought it would be fun to hear stories / see photos of your Wimbledon memories.

I knew my time there would be unforgettable when we saw the draw for our Centre Court tickets.... Fed v. Safin................

My favorite W match was the time I saw Curren kick the crap out of JMac. I had to stand the entire match but it was worth it because it didn't last very long. (They used to have a standing section on centre court, right off the court).

I didn't start photographing tennis until later.

Tshooter....those photos are awesome! What kind of camera/lense do you shoot with. I'm just getting back into photography and had just gotten a new slr for wimby last year. I'm taking all the pointers I can get. I really enjoy trying to capture 'the shot'.

Thanks!

Thank you. I'll try to post some more in the near future.

Anyway, 70-200/2.8 and 300/2.8 those are the workhorse lens. If you shoot Nikon they have a 200-400 which I think is perfect for tennis. Unfortunately I shoot Canon so that is not available to me. I think the Nikon is variable aperture though I don't recall how wide it opens. F/2.8 is obviously nice, especially if you can't get a clean background.

Some were shot with other misc lens. The Fed-Roddick in Ashe stadium with a 14mm. Some were a 135/2.0 though it's a bit short for tennis.

Enjoy yourself.
