Greg Rusedski for White & Case

Tennis is a tricky sport to photograph - opposing players tend to stand far apart, viewpoints are limited, very long lenses are standard, the ball moves unbelievably fast and players look best before rather than after they hit the ball. Two outstanding tennis shots come to mind; Bjorn Borg by Eammon McCabe, sports photographer of the year four times, should be used in tennis manuals as an example of how to hit a backhand, and just look at the concentration on his face; the other is Roger Federer on the cover of the New York Times by Erik Madigan Heck shot from directly above, really innovative.
