Tennis Legends at Charleston Invesco Series Experience

Part of my assignment to photograph the Volvo Car Open this year included covering 4 tennis legends in the Invesco Series tour. Mark “The Scud” Philippoussis (winner of two Davis Cup titles), Michael Chang (the youngest male ever to win a Grand Slam), Andy Roddick (former #1 and Grand Slam Champion), and Tommy Haas (winner of 15 tour titles and one of only a few players to beat Roger Federer last year), all duked it out on Center Court! It was a very chilly morning. But the player’s light-hearted banter with each other, and with the crowd, soon had everyone warming up with fits of laughter. Even the chair umpire couldn’t resist a smile or two. But don’t let the fun fool you, these guys came to play!!! Eventually Tommy Haas prevailed to win the series.
