Up Close With Rublev, Korda & More: Grass Swing Moments #ShotByRadka
Los Angeles-based Czech fashion photographer Radka Leitmeritz turned her lens to the grass courts in Halle for a series of behind-the-scenes portraits featuring ATP Tour players at the NOVENTI OPEN.
Leitmeritz, whose work has previously featured in the pages and covers of international fashion magazines including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, L'Officiel and Elle, followed top seed Andrey Rublev as he navigated the draw to reach his first grass-court final. Along the way, she snapped portraits of the Russian player in private moments on the practice court, player dining and hotel room.
Her keen lens also caught Karen Khachanov and Sebastian Korda behind the scenes, home favourite Jan-Lennard Struff in training, and captured doubles players including Michael Venus and Tim Puetz, and more.
