As week two of Wimbledon comes to a close, tennis fans around the world are on the edge of their seats in preparation for the championships – the same kind of tension we can see in this dramatic photo taken on July 9 during the men's doubles semi-final match.

As Israel's Jonathan Erlich jumps to return during the match against Britain's Jamie Murray and Australia's John Peers, we can imagine the thoughts going through his mind.

The Argentina-born Israeli has been playing tennis since 1996, at the age of 19. Though he and his partner, German Phillipp Petzschner, did not make it past the semifinal rounds, it's not the end for these tennis players. The U.S. Open is fast approaching at the end of summer, and we've got our eyes out for these two.
