Every year at the BNP Paribas Open, a group of tennis photograph enthusiasts come together to form an elite squad. Ball on String photography better known as BOS consists of only three members including Jason, Chris, and senior staff member, Daniel. This year I was able to infiltrate the secret club and interview each of the members with the hopes of one day becoming BOS.
A couple days ago we were at a Wilson photo/video shoot, filming some footage for a commercial and behind the scenes spot with some of Wilson’s top athletes including Victoria Azarenka, Grigor Dimitrov, and Milos Raonic. While we were waiting, I spotted Feliciano Lopez getting a practice session in on a side court before his turn in the spotlight.
I snuck over to watch and found Lopez in head to toe Wilson: apparel, footwear and racquet. His Core Logo “W” Court Tech T-shirt and Solana Colorblock 10″ Shorts had a casual comfortable look and the all white ensemble is perfect for keeping cool in the desert sun. On his feet, he was sporting the Wilson Rush Pro’s (check out our review of the shoe). Lastly, his racquet of choice, the Wilson Juice 100, is perfect for those seeking power and spin.

I’m incredibly antsy and eager counting down the days till I get to enjoy the BNP Paribas Tournament this year! Always an absolute favorite for me, this year is even more exciting with all of the new additions (Stadium 2, lots of new restaurants, added practice courts, etc.)! So, while I count the hours until I get to be basking in the sun and tennis at the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens, I thought I’d share with you another new feature the BNP has for us this year (even if you don’t get the chance to venture out to the desert for tennis, this might be worth a download so you can keep up with all the action)!
First things first. Wifi! Yes, the Tennis Gardens has updated its technology this year and is offering wifi throughout the venue! So whether it’s checking scores on one of the courts you aren’t watching or sending a quick “out of office” email, you will find quick internet access.
