I didn't realise how much Boredo had made it there until i saw him appear in the photos.

Thanks Mirka, never thought i would say this but this actually the most interesting thread you ever posted that doesn't monsoon roger with praise and actually reminds us that other players exist.

they also took a photo with surfboards and kuerten's was the odd one out cos it was his own or something

No, I said he would wear either Gold or Gray by the end of the year..

You posted pics of yellow and gray shirts and said: "Whens Rogis first indoor tourny? Thats whens he is going to wear the new clothes!!"

Then you said: "You will in a few days. Rogi will wear the gold in Madrid and Gray in Shanghai."

To me, the whole picture looks darkened. none of them look normal, and that would be magnified for James b/c he is darker to start with. It didn't look to me like he was altered any more than the whole rest of the pic and everyone else in it.

Okay having looked at all of the pictures, some observations:

Andy looks adorably dorky, though he should lose the mohawk. :)

I think there should be a rule that says Roger should wear all black at all times. He looks so :drool: in it.

James, Kolya, and Ivan are all adequately filling the "Bald Dudes" position.

Rafa looks downright cute in that outfit. He can look so young at times.

They didn't feel the need to do anything to James. All the players are brown because they gave the entire foto a sepia touch to make it look like something you would see on a clubhouse wall from the 1930's.

It looks like they sepia'd the photo in Photoshop, then thought it somehow didn't look right... that the new version didn't make Blake look dark enough relatively. So they added extra tint to him. The inability of the Shanghai artists to "get" Blake's skin difference seems matched by their trouble with European features generally. The drawings are awful! However, a group of Asian athletes drawn by Europeans would be similarly "off," for sure.

It looks like they sepia'd the photo in Photoshop, then thought it somehow didn't look right... that the new version didn't make Blake look dark enough relatively. So they added extra tint to him.

Is it me or is James a bit too far off to the right, like almost out of the picture :scratch:

Great pic otherwise.

The inability of the Shanghai artists to "get" Blake's skin difference seems matched by their trouble with European features generally. The drawings are awful! However, a group of Asian athletes drawn by Europeans would be similarly "off," for sure.
James was the first cake/sketch I saw. I was like, what the hell is that :haha:

i love the room. i love the old shanghai feel :) a mix of east and west.

Yes, I cannot believe no one else commented on the room. It's so beautiful :worship: . The woodwork is so warm and classy. I really love the chest Roger is sitting on, just beautiful. "Chinoiserie" is definitely top-notch furniture, true eye-candy.

Speaking of eye-candy, all the players are treats to the eyes. These are awesome pictures. All of them look great and charming. I cannot decide who looks better :drool: . Everyone of them has one or two pictures where he stands out.

Also, there is an air of friendliness and companionship that reminds us of what sports really stands for: striving to be the best in a field of common interest and respect to those who share it with us.

Thanks mirkaland for posting the pictures.

And i got to say Tommy Robredo is a good looking guy.

Yeah, if he doesn't stand out for his tennis (in this group), at least he does for his looks.

:haha: :haha: It really looks like that's what he was thinking :rolls:

Actually, I just saw the opening ceremony clip on Masters Series TV. The crowd was going crazy waving programs and screaming for autographs and Andy threw himself in the crowd with his arms open to hug them :lol:

In the meantime Roger's posse (see J'torian's airport photo with captions
http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=4430623&postcount=1908) were making sure nobody could touch him :haha:

There is also a moment where Roger and Tommy are having a chat. ;)

well yes.... i had to pretend that i wasn't looking at the hairy legs :lol:

umm the furniture... yes they look like authentic antiques. the room fittings too, with the fireplace, wide panel timber floorings, tall 'french' doors (did they have leadlight panels on top?) look like they are remnants from the early 20th century.

but i'll let a true shanghai local to carry on this discussion ;)

Yes, J'Torian - I have to admit i thought you were crazy with all of that Robredo drooling....but I get it now. It's weird. In these pictures he is just downright gorgeous but other times I see him and he looks....strung out. VERY strange. I like it though. :)

Yeah I see what you mean. The short hair picture is all the proof that I need. He is the best looking guy in the group for sure.

I'm going to go ahead and be contrary and say that I like the long hair better. For me, unless the guy looks heinous with longer hair, I can't help but love it....

:haha::haha: People are seeing the light! Praise be! :bowdown:



Yeah, he never looks all that great during action shots, but that's no different than the majority of tennis players and he cleans up nice. :hearts:

The thing about Tommy's long hair is that it's drastically aged his face. His features actually have a very mature, patrician cast to them, and being framed by long, soft hair merely hardens them further. The short hair, or at least the fairly-short hair he had at the start of this season actually helped serve to soften his face.

(I have a good idea of how this works firsthand as I fiddled around with long hair this summer. It wasn't pretty. :o :haha: )

for some reason i like that better. i understand what you're saying, and its totally true, and that's probably why in his case espcially, i like the long hair better. I like 'em looking old and ragged ;)

This entry made me laugh. You have analyzed Robredo's face/hair way too much. But of course, I expect nothing less from a true-blue Robredo fan, well said J'torian, kudos to you! :yeah:

Seems that someone told Nalby and Rafa to behave.. the past year, they were talking about laugthing all the time.
At least here at the press pictures of the event, they look serious. There're some pictures at the nalby and Rafa's forum (taken by fans in Shangai) where they're joking, but at least not that obviously.... Guys!:angel:

I posted a few of these pics on my livejournal and someone commented that Ljubicic looked "delicious." I can honestly say that's one word I've never heard in conjuction with Ivan Ljubicic.

I like both short and long hair. I didn't like it when he's growing his hair but when the hair reached its current length, it's great.
