Andy Murray wins Wimbledon again 10 July

Championship-winning point at Wimbledon is always a little bit nervy for me even though I have done many of them over the years. There are some pretty big decisions to be made what lens do you go on as you dont know where on the court they will celebrate? Do you go upright or landscape? Are they jumpers or fallers when they win? Whats the light doing? You just know whatever choices you build have to be right. Of course you are able to never legislate for a player turning away from his family and pointing in the wrong direction from the majority of photographers like Andy Murray did in 2013. Luckily he didnt repeat that this year.
