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!

We’ve reached the end of the first week of Wimbledon 2014, so here is a selection from yesterday. A long morning of rain delays made for lots of down time, so I spent most of it hunting for rain features. These are a few of my favorite rain pictures, as well as some action photos and scenes from the queue camping grounds, where camp out for days on end in hopes of getting tickets into the grounds. 

Here and here are galleries with more of my pictures, and here is our “Photographer’s Choice: Best of Week One” gallery, which features the best of the best from a team of incredibly talented photographers and editors. 

I had a lot of fun through week one. On to week two!
