It’s 9 days ’til Cincy, and we’ve got a realllllly close view of Grigor Dimitrov for you to enjoy. The photo pits and press areas at the Western and Southern Open often put us right on the edge of the court, which can make photographing the players alternately an awesome experience and a really tricky one. Here on stadium #3, it often felt a little too close to the action, but we nabbed a few pics we think you’ll enjoy.
Grigor is fun to photograph, since he’s easy on the eyes as well as having a tennis style that mixes flexibility, explosiveness, and grace. We’ve got more pics from this match to share in future on our site, but for now, here’s an appetizer of Grisha’s running and stretching and cranking really cool one-handed backhands.
Remember to click the pics for an expanded view.

Oh. Hello there, Grisha! <3
