Ella Ling's favourite image of the year

   

Photo editor Ella Ling presents her favourite image of the year: 

“As one of the small group of British tennis photographers, we’d argued over what Andy might do on match point when this day would finally come. I’d been at almost every victory of his career and believed he would sink to his knees and cry, overcome with emotion. Well, I was half right! Although we all love a flamboyant and wild celebration following a win, and complained at the time that it’s not exactly what we got, in retrospect it was a celebration fitting of Andy. So overcome by actually winning his first Slam, all he could do was sink to his haunches and stare in disbelief at his team – in his own way, it was the biggest celebration of his career.”
