The Guardian and Observer sport photographer Tom Jenkins selects his favourite images from 2016 and recalls how each one was created
Andy Murray wins Wimbledon again – 10 July
135mm lens 1/1600 f4 ISO 1000
Championship-winning point at Wimbledon is always a 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 don’t know where on the court they will celebrate? Do you go upright or landscape? Are they jumpers or fallers when they win? What’s the light doing? You just know whatever choices you make have to be right. Of course you can 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 didn’t repeat that this year.
