I don’t cover a lot of sports these days. I generally do the PGA Tour event when it comes to nearby Bethesda Country Club, a couple of NFL football games and the Citi Open tennis event here in D.C.

For the second year in a row, I covered the tennis for European PressPhoto Agency. I did the Friday quarterfinals, the semifinals on Saturday and finals on Sunday. Long days too.

All total I covered 14 matches and filed 260 images. Here are some of my favorites from the week.
