Talking Venus' Image Is Wimbledon Winner

Venus' Image Is Wimbledon Winner

Photo By Steve Bardens By Tennis Week
08/15/2007

Venus Williams was the picture of perseverance in winning her fourth Wimbledon title last month and the image of Williams lunging for a shot against Maria Sharapova is now a Wimbledon winner as well. The shot of Williams, pictured at left, by Steve Bardens of Offside Sports Photography, took top honors in The Rolex Wimbledon Picture of the Year Competition.
More than 750 pictures, covering a range of both action and still shots, were entered in the competition, open to all 206 Wimbledon accredited photographers. The contest was judged by the Wimbledon Photo Liaison Manager, Bob Martin and AELTC Committee Member, Julian Tatum.
For his winning photo, Bardens will be awarded a trip, with a guest, to the Giraglia Rolex Cup, held at St. Tropez, France in June 2008.
"I am delighted to have won this year's Rolex Wimbledon Picture of the Year Competition with my picture of Venus Williams playing against Maria Sharapova in the ladies quarterfinals," Bardens said. "It's a great competition offering fantastic prizes and I will certainly be entering again next year."
The Rolex Wimbledon Picture of the Year Competition Results
  • First Place — Steve Bardens (Offside Sports Photography)
  • Highly Commended — Sergio Carmona (Tennis A Fondo)
  • Highly Commended — Ryan Pierce (Getty Images)
  • Highly Commended — Antoine Couvercelle (Tennis Magazine France)
  • Highly Commended — Karwai Tang (Alpha Press)
  • Highly Commended — Ron Angle (ESPN Magazine)

Re: Venus' Image Is Wimbledon Winner

It was 4th round. Described it on his website as:
"Venus Williams produces a spectacular dive to play a shot during her match with Maria Sharapova on Centre Court"
Didn't she fall, the reach for the ball and miss. Would that still be a spectacular dive?

But i'm glad a Venus picture won.

Re: Venus' Image Is Wimbledon Winner

This is the perfect evidence that she is !!!!!!
