    Hi,

    This is my first post over here. I've been to several international championships (as a photographer or spectator) and I'm just back from Madrid.
    The organisation was the worst I've ever seen. On arrival, the ticket office was closed (during the matches!!!). After a while we got our pre-ordered tickets. No-one could tell exactly where the main entrance was. We had to wander through dark corridors to find out that the matches already started.
    The security guys were horrible: players, photographers, officials, ... everyone complained.
    At the end of the day there was never a schedule for the next day.
    But enough of this: here are some pics. Not my normal pics because I was in the public (I wanted to see some matches again...). Biggest upset was that my favourite player, Mette Schjoldager, was injured and not participating...

    I'm still working on the pics of the European Championships (more action shots...)
