awesome shot! she hits with a lot of spin i see jealous of the clay courts. a few har-tru courts here but they are a rarity.
Thanks Mike, means a lot coming from my personal "maybe one day I'll make one photo half as good as his worst" hero ;] (shot some interiors recently, gained another level of appreciation for the results you get)
I'm honestly suprised that clay courts are considered something extra in the US, here (Czech Republic) it's probably the most common surface and definitely not anything posh.
And to stay on topic - the lighting was a 24" softbox camera right pointed down for key, rim light was a bare flash camera left behind the net (sort of obvious). Here's the SOOC if anyone's interested - http://plawa.cyber.cz/img/rita_tenis_orig.jpg
