Tennis photography is difficult. Photographers don't see the tennis ball as much as sense it. They need 1,000th of a second or less exposure to stop it. With the start of the @USOpen upon us, today we share with you this dynamic image of #SerenaWilliams taken by the world renowned sports photographer, #BobMartin. In this photo of Williams focused and straining to connect her racket with the ball, Martin captures something television cameras cannot: the frozen beauty of the fully extended body in flight. 🎾 #whoshotsports #usopen
