Shadow Shot Sunday 149 - Monte Carlo, Monaco



Who is this crowd of photographers eagerly awaiting??


None other than Nadal, of course, seen here beating a decidedly dejected Djokovic 6-3, 6-1 at the recent Monte Carlo Open, thus winning the trophy for the eighth time in a row, and perhaps more importantly, breaking a run of seven losses against the Number One - Eighth time lucky all round!!


And where else could you watch the world's top tennis players in such a beautiful setting squeezed between the mountains and the sea....??


.....complete with a cruise ship gliding by behind your head as you serve......!!


This is a tournament I shall definitely be returning to next year...in the meantime check out other shadow shots this week by clicking here....Enjoy!!

This seems to be the perfect place for a center court - the mountainous terrain leaves a tiny valley in which the players can volley. Of course with the gorgeous sea in the background, the game might be secondary...nice neighborhood!

Gorgeous setting for a major tennis tournament! I guess the touches of shadow were welcome intruders!
