Tennis.com:"Canada trash-talking France ahead of '12 Cup tie"

http://tennis.com/articles/templates...5130&zoneid=25

Quote:
During Tuesday's official announcement that the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre in Vancouver would host the 2012 Davis Cup World Group tie between Canada and France, Tennis Canada unveiled a pair of provocative posters to promote the event. The Vancouver Sun reports that one featured Canada’s top player, Milos Raonic, with the tag line: "Hey France, I’ve got a 151 m.p.h. serve. Try returning that with a baguette."

Another poster has Canadian player Vasek Pospisil saying, "Hey France, Welcome to Vancouver. My hometown and your worst nightmare."
Tennis Canada’s Gavin Ziv said the arena will seat just over 4,500 and he hopes it will create a "loud and vibrant atmosphere while still remaining intimate. We’ve got to teach the people how it’s done around the world and we should do the same here. We are patriotic. We showed it during the Olympics and we can bring that here. Don’t come in with the mentality of ‘Quiet please.’ You’ve got to cheer for your country and make it hard on the other team."


Sorry postermakers, I don't find these taglines witty or intimidating - they are lame and clumsy.
I am sure, MTF can think up something more subtle. Any ideas?

They are newcomer and excited. Passion is always loveable in Davis Cup.

Milos good luck trying to beat Gael or Jo in a best- of 5. You will be lucky to get one set.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

He'll have helluva chance if they play with baguettes instead of racquets. Seems like he sure they will.

just a question man....I admire your love for Gael and Jo but you do know that they are not a standard for 5 set matches right?

You can have trouble attracting viewers with the tagline, "Let's try and win a set"

Good to see the Canadians enthused and ready. And they definitely have a legitimate shot at winning the event, although I think France will eventually win.

France wins easily.. Milos is overated and Pospisil will be good just wont be Tsonga, Monfils or Gasquet..

Lol. Raonic and Pospisil are good young talent. They will give France problems if they're overlooked.

I think it's cool. It's not trash-talking at all, it's funny stuff and it will be a real Davis Cup match.

Trash-talking is OK as long as you don't come off looking stupid...
