    The weather turned warmer on Saturday, but it got off to a bit of cloudy start, with a few raindrops thrown in. The 10AM matches were delayed a few minutes while the ballpersons wiped down the lines. Before that, I made the usual rounds of the practice courts and found Fed practicing before a good sized crowd. This time I was able to get some decent photos and video, shot through a narrow space in between bodies crowding the fence.

    Hi all at TAT!

    I'm not a "regular" TAT member but I thought I would share my photo journal and thoughts from my trip to the 2009 Sony Ericsson. It was an incredible trip, as usual, and a fun-filled 5 days in the southern Florida sun.
