I would like to know your opinon if they were 26 handsome men in tongues :rolleyes: Men or women, people shouldn't be treated like cows. I think it's ridiculous. If i wanted that, I'd see WWF :(

I wouldn't even like male models to be running around a tennis court. Having people over 16 as ball kids is weird in my opinion. I don't even like the ball people at the USO cause they're too old.

It'll be horribly ironic if they go to all this trouble to have models dispensing balls in a tournament bereft of top players. At this rate Henman will be the prime recipient of their attentions - not exactly what the tournament organisers had in mind.

What is that good for anyway? Models belong on a catwalk not on a tennis court. Female models are only good to look at if they have some flesh on their bones and all male models are greasy looking. Never in my life would I date one of them. :spit: Duh, Iīm so off topic, right? :rolleyes:

Maybe it's all a plot to help Wonky Juanqui retain his title - the beautiful chicks could distract his rivals ;)

If Madonna tries to get a ball, her tits will fall on the court. And Elton could be easily confused with Billy Jean King

The ball people should be invisible anyway, this is a silly way to "promote" tennis.

Sjengster
10-15-2004, 02:08 PM
Maybe they should get the Hulk on before matches to have a promotional exhibition bout with one of the players. There can be one wrestling contest and one tennis contest, to make things even - I for one would love to see Agassi give it a go.

Here is my theory on the matter: Somehow, Jim McInvale has his hand in this. With Roddick out and Agassi married, he initiated the whole idea in order to distract players like Safin and Nalbandian from playing tennis so that they wouldn't qualify for Houston. Clever, eh? :aplot:

This is a disgusting idea. Like Maratski said, the ball kids should be under 16. It's a great incentive for kids playing tennis, have a chance to be a ball kid in an ATP tournament, watch some matches when they're not on court and have a chance to meet players.

Too bad we don't get coverage here, it would be funny to see them attempt to pass the balls in the right place at the right time.

Plus, the models aren't just models, they're the age range of most of the players. The question is... are the players happy, or annoyed? LOL. Bet some of the guys who withdhrew are rethinking their decision:p

Models In Madrid

By Tennis Week
10/15/2004

The catwalk comes to the court in Madrid next week. Organizers of the Tennis Masters Series-Madrid have hired 25 models, ages 19 to 27, to serve as ball girls during next week's tournament.

The models have been receiving a crash course in tennis terminology and etiquette this week to prepare for the start of the tournament on Monday. Their presence may compel players to watch more than the balls.

"Before taking them on court to practice, we have shown them a bit about the sport, how you play, what a set is, what a game is and an ace," their coach Julio Nieto said. "They will add beauty, but we still have to work on a lot of details so everything works smoothly. The important thing is for them not to disrupt the rhythm of the game or distract the players."

There is no truth to the rumor ring card girls will display the score during changeovers.

The models are sponsored by designer Hugo Boss, which is also providing their clothes for the event.

Seriously though, I'd feel degraded if I were one of the models. I mean handing them sweaty towels, tossing them tennis balls, being ignored, feeling like a 19th century servant.

I can't imagine that the feeling would be any worse than sitting around in a bikini all day, being fondled by hair, makeup, and photographers?

10-19-2004, 04:09 AM
Rebecca, the feeling probably wouldn't be any worse, considering they would rather do something they enjoy (modeling), rather than doing something they just learned two weeks ago, and which you can't make a living out of.
