On Thursday WTA players were fighting their way into the third and final round of the qualifying stage at the 2017 US Open. Our photographer Jimmie48 was there to capture the battle for the main draw, including the losses of veterans Vera Zvonareva and Kateryna Bondarenko. Meanwhile, he also went to the practice courts to photograph Maria Sharapova and later the Russian’s Evian water event alongside colleague Madison Keys.
