Love the Safina and Fed ...contemplating all alone.

Well one of my fav tennis pictures ever:


A very striking scene, Feds waiting at the net to congratulate Rafa with his Wimbledon victory. The disappointment drips from his face, beautifully illustrated by the light shining around him. The photographer really 'caught the moment'.
And it isn't even close to 'technically perfect', but the flashlight artefacts only make it even more dramatic. What an awesome job. Should I ever be able to make such a picture, I'd be very proud of it.
That's probably one of the best pics I've seen. Beautiful.

After this Fedal fest I think this thread needs to be balanced.

This pic is not particularly brilliant but captures an important moment and it is very emotional.



Nole right after winning his first grand slam, I think it's beautiful.



This pic just makes me laugh but it's a classic one and kudos to the photographer who was quick enough to take that one.



Nole is an emotional player that gives great pictures... welcome to the Djokocoaster.

That picture gives me chills. Memorable moment in tennis history.

There's nothing wrong in photoshopped images, if done aesthetically. I remember one of Federer hitting in the foreground and fire behind him, seen in MTF. Put up by some Fed fan. Done very well though. Wish I could see it again.

Great thread.

I like how the picture captures the two different ways of walking on court. Roddick shoulders and head down, Federer the opposite.

Beautiful shots of Nole in Montecarlo, love this tournament site.
