Series Name: 'Superman' - Gael Monfils dives at Australian Open 2016
Series Description: I was commissioned by Reuters to cover the 2016
Australian Open Tennis Tournament in Melbourne.
On this day I was positioned on the ‘Catwalk’ which
is high above the stands, and looks directly down onto
the court. Gael Monfils from France was in action in
his fourth round match when he dived horizontally
off the ground in a desperate bid to get to a ball hit
by his opponent Andrey Kuznetsov. The spectacular
action of Monfils diving combined with the clean
background and nice light made for a memorable
sequence of images.
