tennis on bosporus bridge

istanbul’s being the only city in the world which is located on two continents is a gem for those who want to astonish foreigners. “i live in europe, work in asia” or vice versa is a favorite (and believe me, way too outworn) starter. trivial everyday experiences for the locals, maybe interesting bits for some others. now we have a new one: yesterday, on may 15, the first tennis match on two continents was played on the bosporus bridge. venus williams and ipek senoglu played for about five minutes. i have no photos of the event, but here is a nice one.

    you know, this sounded really promising. sort of like the match Andre Agassi had on top of the hotel in dubai. I was expecting an amazing birdseye photograph of the event showcasing the beauty of bosphorus along with a match going on in the middle of the bosphorus bridge.

    but I see that the court is crowded with the usual curious spectator Turks around and *in* the court which i believe is the reason there are no proper photographs on the web. what a major dissapointment. what a failed event.
