    That one, definitely. But I Want To Hold Your Hand is one of my favorite songs of all time. Makes up completely for Yellow Submarine.

    BB,

    Well it is! Did you make it to IW this year??? If not maybe we should set that up a little firmer for 2014.

    Maybe this is as good a place as any to ask this: where do you put your cameras? I was in IW for three days this year. You have the official huge TV cameras in their places with a guy operating them, and then some cameras poking out of holes at the back. Where do you setup your cameras? Do you record a whole match? Is someone always operating it right there or is it remote controlled?

    Suresh,

    It depends on the year and what we are trying to film. This year, two places--in the pit as we call it--which has those two openings at court level behind the baseline you mention. And the second view was from the top under the south scoreboard looking down with a very long lens.

    Sometimes we set up a stationary hd camera to film the patterns, but with the high speed cameras there is always an operator (usually me) following the players. We don't necessarily record an entire match--depends on who is playing and how it goes. Don't know if you have looked at the Free Tour but there are multiple high speed shots from other years both IW and Cincy.

    Do you pay the tournament for filming privileges or is it kind of a free "good for tennis" arrangement? Understand if you don't want to reply as it may be sensitive info.

    Hi BB. I'm a relative newbie and we don't know each other, but I'd just like to say:

    Bungalo Bill, Bungalo Bill, if he can't do it his bungalo will.

    Just my two cents. Best wishes and congrats on the tennis playing wife thing.

    Suresh,

    Are you starting a competing site? I can't go into details but it's set up through the tournaments.

    John

    With photographics skills like these at IW (posted in the thread in the Travel section), I think I will give you a run for your money:

    JY: I see that Danielle Datzenrod is back on TC plugging tennisplayer.net. That is great. But I shudder every time I see her forehand - she makes excessive use of the wrist. Can't you fix it?

    Did you wake up from a very long sleep, like Rip Van WInkle?
