Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo Koto-ku. This event of Ariake international woman open was held from June 17. The participating player was only Japanese in spite of international event. The second round of woman singles was held on that day. Although the game was advancing by 1, 2, 10, 11 court of the outdoors, the competition site was changed hurriedly into the Colosseum with an opening-and-closing type dome since it had rained from afternoon. Since it was also a weekday, the spectator was also sparse. The player who is participating in this event is an almost of all the circuit professional. They almost belong to a sponsor company, and they challenge the tennis event of domestic or an overseas in all the year round. However, there are few player who can still play an active part in main International Event. They begin tennis from 6-7 years old, and are playing an active part and distinguishing themselves in the junior event. They seem to fill with tennis all their youth. And, they strive for practice under the exclusive coach, play in the many events of the subsystem of domestic or an overseas and get circuit points or prize. That the world of this tennis also rises even to a top pro seems to be so hard. So, the world of a sport is the severe world since the results are all, and a beauty and strength seem not to be in direct proportion. Anyway, since the flash was forbidden on condition of indoor, this photograph was taken at the low speed of shutter priority.
