Is the ATP site biased? or the worst photographers ever?

The ATP must really have in it for Murray.

For those of us who cant erase the bloody image of Murray as Dracula*, despite the passage of months and months,
the latest ATP disaster is the San Jose winner shot currently airing on the site.
Maybe they are out to destroy his popularity and portray him as some kind of circus side show
Doesnt seem that they make roddick look that bad.

With the big push by mr disney to promote the game doesnt anyone look at the web site and the hideous images of the players they are tying to promote? Those photos would certainly turn off all but those with a strong stomach or a taste of the macabre.

My dog can take better photos (she also works for dog biscuits).

* sorry i looked for the photo and couldn't find it

Re: Is the ATP site biased? or the worst photographers ever?

When did they change the trophy from the lovely tall vase to that party favor phallus?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

I imagine that it is not easy to create flattering photos of such a homely creature.

Yeah, Murray isn't photogenic.

But the blood splattered pic was stretching it a bit...

He could also post pics of himself- saw some in the pics of MTF members thread and he is a nice looking young man.

That Murray pic with the blood is just awful. Why would they post that?

I like a lot of players.

Re: Is the ATP site biased? or the worst photographers ever?

I rarely see good pictures of AndMy, I think he is just unphotogenic.

When it comes to publishing awful pictures I don't the ATP is nearly as bad as Eurosport


"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
