A Stretch and Tiny Bubbles at Sony Ericsson Open Tennis Finals

It's often a stretch to capture unique images while struggling with fluctuating color temperature, finding a fresh angle and the onslaught of tennis photographers in the photo wells.
Here are a few of my images and a behind the scenes look at some of the many shooters including a few "Think Tankers" at this weekend's Sony Ericsson Open tennis finals. Tennis photographer Michael Baz says over 130 photgraphers were credentialed for the two week tournament.
