The second model from the right in that picture... for a moment I had a horrible feeling it was Vinny Ice. Now that would put the WTA players right off their game.

I find the whole model topic,male or female, nauseating. Unfortunately no one making those decisions gives a rat's a** about what I think. Something like this could only be stopped by the players IMO but doubt they give a rat's a** either. Agassi said something last year about it. Does anyone remember?

:devil:
Nah not really. And I don't usually get involved in this stuff :angel: But I have 2 young boys at home and I try to instill in them the view of respect for everybody. And putting models on a tennis court in tight skirts and low cut tops instead of on a runway gives the wrong impression. Maybe it wouldn't bother me if the "models" weren't wearing such skimpy clothing. I did notice that this year the skirts were a bit longer,hurrah :rolleyes: But they were hired for one thing only and I don't think that I need to go into that here.
( and I have nothing against women who want to be models and make a living). Ok I am off my soapbox now ;)

I hope that you are right. But as with many topics, majority rules and I don't think that at Madrid last year much was made of the models by the players. So look the models are back.Anyone remember what Agassi said?

Maybe is offtopic :topic: ...
but anyone saw today when Ljubicic complained about a black model who didn't pass the balls right??? The model was disgusted with Ljubo's attitude and then she went to complain to Enric Molina... It was a tense moment on the match IMO

NicoFan
10-22-2005, 10:19 PM
I am watching the re-play and it just happened.

He didn't like the way she was throwing the balls to him.

Just for the record, he did apologize to her.

The players always are telling the ballkids where to stand, they aren't doing things right, etc. So must be difficult in this situation where the players have models who don't know everything 100%, but in this situation, they look like jerks when they say something.

And kids just take the corrections and do what they are told. An adult isn't going to be as thrilled by someone ordering them around.

Reason # 1001 why having models serve as ballpersons isn't the best of ideas.

NicoFan
10-22-2005, 10:24 PM
As for the male models at a WTA tournament - ho hum.

Personally, I think next year at Madrid when they have the models, the guys should play shirtless...that way, you'd have something for both the male and female fan.... :devil:

(Just kidding... ;) )

i think it's about time we had male models, i never realised they had female models till the other day so it's been a bit unfair to the girls (in more ways than one!)

lol nicofan!!!

During the match Ljubo-Nalbandian happened a surrealist fact when a model-ball girl who was in the zone behind the baseline, ran towards the umpire , because she had felt offended by Ljubo , something surrealist 100%, a ball-girl protesting as she was a player :eek:

I didn't hear what the ballgirl has said to Enric Molina ( the umpire ), but he has answered her " Don't worry , everything is under my control "....The girl seemed angry , quite offended and Ljubo apologized with her

According to the rest of models-ball girls, this girl called " Emma " is the kind of person that likes to attract attention .

I guess this ball-girl will have been expelled from the tournament and tomorow she won't be on court..

Ljubcic on his incident with a model-ball girl :
" Was a misunderstanding. Was an absolute misunderstanding. She went too close to me and she hit the ball too hard. You know, I had to defend. I was thinking like, I don't need to lose energy defending from the ball girl. Was a breakpoint. So I tried to show her how to hit the ball. The people started to whistle. Then she went to the umpire. I don't know what she told him. I said sorry. I felt like she felt hurt or something. Was absolute misunderstanding. "

It's easy to see from Galaxystorm's post that these models will need some kind of training before they go on court, otherwise it might all end up being a bit ...funny.
