The All England Club, Wimbledon, was saddened to learn of the death of photographer Anja Niedringhaus and would like to offer condolences to her family, friends and colleagues. 

She was a regular attendee among the photographers at The Championships, capturing some of the most iconic images from recent years, including Andy Murray's history-making win last year, and Serena Williams' extraordinary leap in 2012, pictured above. 

“She loved Wimbledon. It was almost her second home,” commented Associated Press photo editor Tony Hicks.
