Here we are in the second round of Wimbledon and Lukas Rosol provides a better celebration image than we sometimes get from the Wimbledon final.
This is the split second he realised he’s won. Beating the World number 2 Rafa Nadal was the achievement of the week. It was a mamouth match that went on for 3 hours 19 minutes. I thought Rafa would come back and win but incredibly Lukas Rosol kept up his incredibly high standard of play.
I was taking action pictures all through the game but really I was waiting for this moment. At match point some players jump, some fall to their knees others turn away to hide their emotion. If he’d jumped he would have been out of the frame but fortunately he sank to his knees.
After what must have been a gruelling match he still looks fresh faced and as though he’d happily do it all again!
