Our man behind the lens is back, and gearing up for the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year – the US Open.

Check out his first blog of the fortnight here

The Saturday before America’s premier tennis event is devoted to kids, mixing fun with appearances from the big names from the ATP and WTA Tours.

James Blake and Ana Ivanovic were out playing a Pro-Am friendly, before Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Lindsay Davenport and Serena Williams took to the court for a spot of target practice.

Of course, it’s not just tennis on Kids’ Day – there were star turns from Demi Lovato and Colby O’Donis, as well as a pep rally from the brilliant Soul Tigers.
