Rafa at The Masters Cup

Time to forget Paris-Bercy.

Official Site: http://www.masters-cup.com/1/home/

Schedule: http://www.masters-cup.com/2/news/schedule.asp

The draw takes place at The Hilton Hotel on Wednesday 7th November at 2pm local time (7am CET, 1am EST)

I believe Rafa flies to Shangai tomorrow (Tuesday 6th Nov.)

Good Luck, Rafa!!

Surely, it can't be worse than this.

Re: Rafa at The Masters Cup

ALL of those are truly atrocious!

Not that it is any of a surpise to me, no...

Re: Rafa at The Masters Cup

pfff, who did these paintings, they are so damn ugly

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Rafa at The Masters Cup

The Bryans and Federer are spot on, Canas and Roddick are pretty good too, perhaps the former's nose should be smaller and the latter's jaw is overdone. The worst is Rafa (makes him look Asian and crazy) and Djokovic (makes him look like a doll with those eyes). All in all, it's not funny to put big noses on everyone and to make them all look much older than they are. But the ones I mentioned above do a good job accentuating all of the funny features off those people's faces to the point of absurdity.

Edit: actually, Robredo's is maybe the most brilliant of the bunch.

Edit: The rest don't actually take into account the players' facial features, they just make them look funny in random ways (big noses/ears) and they're identifiable because only blake is black/bald/beard, etc. Nalbandian's does take into account his facial features, but makes him look old and sinister.

Edit: Blake is hard to do, but for Ljubicic they should have focused on making his bald dome much bigger than his face, that's his main thing. They should have made Davydenko more weasel-y.
