Nicks and his crew photographed seven players in Cincinnati and Los Angeles using both 35mm film for the print magazine and the Flex for these online videos. Because the Flex shoots up to 1,455 frames per second at 4-megapixel resolution, it enables viewers to see as no spectator can how Samantha Stosur's muscles move as she hits a volley and what goes into one of Kim Clijsters's sliding splits as she reaches for a wide forehand.
