2012 SAP Open

I don't have much good to say about the SAP Open this year, so I'll keep this brief. I was really looking forward to the doubles exhibition on the first night, my all-time favorite player John McEnroe, plus my current favorite player Gael Monfils were squaring off, each partnering with a young American player.

The big name this year was Andy Roddick, who apparently has not grown up since this nonsense.

I didn't have as much luck with the panning shots this year, but this one of Matthew Ebden worked out:

Seems that Monfils is not the only French player with big moves on the court:

Ryan Harrison followed up his solid Davis Cup showing with a run to the semifinals:

A word about the multiple exposure pictures: These were all done in-camera (Nikon D3/D3S) with no manipulation.
