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."

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.

Against Sharapova, Venus got EVERYTHING back. Her defense was amazing.
