We’re baaaaaccckkkkk!!!! Indian Wells, here we go!

Sometimes you just need to get high!! lol Climbing the fence to get the shot of the Wilson Steam that we want on camera

Good morning everyone!

So it’s 1am here in Newport Beach, California and oddly enough I just woke up from going to bed at 11pm and I have to be up at 4:30am to head to Indian Wells…..I think it’s common when you know you have to get up early, that you really don’t sleep…. so thought I might as well takes this opportunity to write the 1st entry for IW! 😉

The last couple of days have been spent shooting video with Vika Azarenka, some of our young upcoming American tennis players and some local junior players…. it has been a blast!!!

I don’t want too give too much away, so I am going to let some photos from the shoot do the talking….

Hopefully the video is as funny as it is in our heads and as much fun as we had shooting it!!!

It’s off to the desert in a couple of hrs to shoot some more ‘Evidence’ for the Juice and Steam ads….. my boss Mike gets in today and we will be shooting some legality stuff…. rumor has it the wind is supposed to be killer next couple of days… hope it doesn’t become an issue…..

Will write more when I am not completely delirious… it was a long couple of days and the next two days will also be EXTENDED!!

Let’s cross our fingers we get some good stuff that you will enjoy. 🙂

Until later,

Tracy

Wilson Racquet Sports, a division of leading sports equipment manufacturer Wilson Sporting Goods  is proud to serve as official ball sponsor of this year’s Junior Orange Bowl International Tennis Championship, which begins this week in Coral Gables, Fla., and runs through December 23. This year’s tournament has received a record number of over 1,300 competitor applicants aged 14 and under, attracting the most promising young tennis stars from around the globe.

“We are thrilled to be a part of such a classic tennis tournament that draws boys and girls from as far away as Russia and Japan, as well as hometown locals,” said Renaud Vallon, global tour director for Wilson. “The Orange Bowl continuously produces top notch talent and proves to be a fundamental tournament in helping future tennis professionals. We are excited to be a part of this process.”

 This year’s players to watch include Wilson top juniors and recent winners of the Eddie Herr International, Dominique Schaefer (U.S.), winner of the Girls 12’s Singles title and Mariya Shishkina (U.S.), winner of the Girls 14’s Singles title. Wilson head to toe player Bogdan Borza (Romania), who is currently the European under 14’s Boys Singles Champion will be an exciting prospect to follow, as will last year’s 12 and under Junior Orange Bowl runner up Chan Yeong Oh (Korea) and Florida native Noah Makarome, the current number two ranked player in the U.S. in boys 12 and under.
