Keep up the photos, thanks for sharing. Lots of good players!
I didn't mean to imply they're not action shots but quite often they tend to be relatively static pictures. Maybe it's just the way they're framed or cropped. I said I prefer taking pictures that have a sense of motion in them - to me that is much more interesting than a torso close-up that happens to have a ball smooshed on the racquet. If that same picture were framed appropriately (depending on what that player's body is doing), it could be a gem..

For example: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/***...-story-top.jpg it's not a bad picture, but in my opinion the picture would be better if you had more of a sense of motion, such as Maria's torso torquing and body coming off the ground. This picture of Tsonga is infinitely more interesting: http://d.yimg.com/i/ng/sp/empics/201...oquet-club.jpg
