Qualifying rounds are necessary for some lower-ranked unseeded players to get the chance to compete in Grand Slam tournaments, which are often filled with young teenager newcomers or those at the end of their careers.
I will photograph qualifying tennis tournament(s) at an upcoming French Open, Wimbledon, or the US Open, capturing environmental portraits, behind-the-seen photos, and athletes before, after, and during play.
Some possible images could include:
Teens, excited about playing for the first time but losing or nervous.
Once high-ranked players at the end of their career, devastated by a loss resulting and forced retirement.
Views of messy locker rooms, press centers, broadcast booths.
Players preparing before the match lost in concentration or listening with earphones, blankly staring.
Court preparation, including maintenance workers, groundskeepers, and cleaners.
Capturing a player’s facial expression and body language on the court right after they win or lose.
