Captured this shot last Saturday at the Australian Open of the exact moment of the ball hitting the racquet.

Good shot. What surprises me is how much it seems the strings are bending (unless it's an illusion from the black markings on the strings.)

So are they at least using the hose to spray the crowd and keep them cool?

Not only are the strings bending but you can also see how much the ball has compressed.

Outstanding timing and a good capture.
