Two-handed backhand shots are powerful and accurate, but lack the elegance of the classic one-hander...heh!

A fine, action shot, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I agree about the power, Ray - she was really giving a lot of that with every shot. I played tennis on only a handful of occasions so my first hand insight into this game is close to nil.
Thank you for your comment.

How action-filled! Looks like you got pretty close to take this, or what lens were you using?
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the remark, Emily. I had an assigned spot right at the nets and next to the umpire. And I had the f2.8, 70-200mm which is a rather competent lens.
Fantastic action shot, Ayush!!! Love it!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Elizabeth.
Great action shot Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Richard.

A wonderful image Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Chris.
Celle-là  aussi est très bien réussie.
Ayush Basu: Merci beaucoup. i ai quelques images, Martine.
Thank you. I have a few more images coming up
She needs a longer dress Ayush. I wonder if Australia takes part in these games?
Ayush Basu: Errr...
Being the South East Asian Games, participation is restricted to the nations of Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Brunei, Cambodia, Philippines and now I think also Papua New Guinea.

Now is the return shot? Looking at her point of focus, it makes me think she has delivered the shot.
Ayush Basu: I see that her racquet is still on the upswing so am inclined to say that she has not connected with the ball yet, Alan.

A great action shot Ayush, you have really captured the concentration.
Ayush Basu: Thank you kindly, Anne. This was one of the several on a burst mode.

Great action shot, you caught the concentration a treat.
Ayush Basu: Thank you kindly. This was one of the several on a burst mode.
Great shot, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Tom!
It must be so hot to play tennis in such weather!
Ayush Basu: Yes, but teams from SE Asia are all used to such weather, isn't it?
Great action shot, Ayush. I used to love playing tennis.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Frank.
My brother too plays tennis, I am more of a ping pong guy.
this shot is a cracker Ayush... talk about concentration... she isn't even looking at the ball coming... she is seeing where to place it over the net....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the generous comment, Peter. I have some brief info about her tomorrow in my post. She is fairly young but has played some significant tennis.

Fantastic in every respect...you caught that action!
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you to say so, Bonnie.
A wonderful look of concentration.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark, Michael.
You even got the ball in the image, Ayush. BRAVO! smile
Ayush Basu: The camera responded very well, Ginnie. I was told that for all ball games, the image tends to lose 50% of its relevance if the ball exits the frame - so I tried to position myself that I had more chances of capturing the ball. Thank you for the kind comment.

She looks powerful, you hopefully watched out smile
Ayush Basu: And more importantly she had control over where she sent the ball tongue I was pretty safe in that sense - I was next to the umpire, Louis.
She means business...
Ayush Basu: ... and business was good for her that day, Larry.
