The 70-200 is the lens you will need. Generally you will be shooting one individual in action and that calls for close-up. Shutter speed needs to be high, like 1,000th second if you want to stop the motion of the arm during a swing. Of course, a few blurred swings add action and you might want to try that.
The biggest problem is camera position. You cannot be on the courts, and many courts are surrounded with wire fences that it is all but impossible to shoot through with good results.
You need to scout the location before hand to find a good place to shoot from.-- hide signature --
