We’re down to the final two players on the women’s side, as Petra Kvitova and Eugenie Bouchard have advanced to the finals of this year’s Wimbledon. I was lucky enough to be on Centre Court to shoot both semi-final matches yesterday. It really is a beautiful court, and I loved every minute of being out there. 

These are the highlights from those two matches, as well as a few other scenes from throughout the day. 

Here, here, and here are galleries with more of my photos. Men’s semi-finals are today!
