They seem determined to convince us that there isn't a single attractive man in the ATP.

And on this evidence I'd say they'll be successful.

No Robredo's looking pretty good, all things considered.

Has he lost his long hair?

Arnaud Clément looks like he needs some sleep :haha:

And Fyrstenberg really doesn't look like he wanted to be photographed.

Radek really isn't the ugliest man on tour. I'm not going to pick out names, but there are definitely people up there that look worse than he does.

Clara Bow
08-27-2007, 10:18 PM
1/3 of the pics look like they are high school, 1/3 look like there are for a drivers license and 1/3 look like they are having their mug shots taken.


I agree about Monoco’s hair being :lol:- it looks like an actual helmet made out of hair.

Tomas looks so earnest in his- kind of like he is getting his picture taken for the National Honor Society or something- cute. PHM looks a little bit like an adorable band geek.

Baggy’s is good. Luby, Jarkko and Stan look pretty good. Jonas looks sweet.

Simon and Richie look like they smoked a little doobie before taking the class pics. Richie can actually carry off that look pretty well.

That is possibly the worst picture of Gonzo that I have ever seen. Tommy would fit in well in the Florida Panhandle (a.k.a . the Redneck Riviera) or Myrtle Beach with that look- yikes. :bolt:

Is that Sam Querry in the next to last batch? :unsure: Well...at least he seems to have a nice personality.

Stepanek, Moodie and Butorac :bolt: :eek:

Gasquet And Berdych look fine...

Kalliopeia

Gasquet looks like he's seriously contemplating whether red or white wine would be a better complement to my brains.

:lol: Safin the old man.

Fee
08-27-2007, 10:38 PM
This guy somehow made Jordan Kerr AND Tommy Haas look much less attractive than they really are. That is one HECK of an accomplishment.

I swear, I'm applying for this job next year. Every picture I took of assorted players looks better than these (but at least Jamie Murray's big head of hair was immortalized before he cut it all off :lol: ).

Burrow
08-27-2007, 10:39 PM
Fish looks like the local alcoholic " ugh...You got any spare change for a cup of coffee...?? ugh.."

Most of these poor guys look high...Safin is a good example.

And once again, it's ratificated the fact, ATP has the worst photographers ever...

So do Federer and Nadal get special exemptions from the ATP portrait taking? They're not included in the most recent ones, and their current ATP pictures aren't the same as everyone elses. How do they luck out?

I think that the ATP is not trying to right a ship that is wrong. Both have good current pics- so why mess with them. I don't see Nole, Blake or Roddick either- so maybe they like their current pics as well.

Eh, well if that's the case, they're not doing a very good job righting the ship. I don't see a single improvement.

bluefork

Hm. I don't think so. Federer has a different background than Nadal, who has a different background from Blake, Roddick, Davydenko, etc. Federer's looks like the only one from TMC.

Louche
08-28-2007, 05:04 AM
I have to agree that Radek is a big improvement. Gonzalez should sue.

Are there no combs or mirrors in Cincinnati? :rolleyes:

Lucinda

Fernando Gonzalez is much too attractive for that picture to be real... It's hideous.

Out of all of them Baggy looks the best, then Safin. Pico's hair is killing me lmao.

And why the hell do they all look cockeyed???

08-28-2007, 10:52 AM
Robredo looks like a queer

Rumour
08-28-2007, 10:53 AM
I'll admit to not recognizing at least a third of them, even though I (should probably) know who most of them are :confused: As for the ones I do know I actually think that, as bad as the majority are, many (like Monaco's - except the hair :lol: ) are actually an improvement on the current ATP profile pics while a few (e.g. Haas') are truly dreadful :o

VolandriFan
08-28-2007, 11:01 AM
:haha: Pico's hair!

Out of all of them, Ancic is the only one who looks decent. Even Fernando and Filo look revolting, and it's hard to accomplish that.

VolandriFan
08-28-2007, 11:04 AM
Oh, and Lapentti's looks very nice.

Kalliopeia
08-28-2007, 11:24 AM

Judging from the pictures, I'd say immediately after a four day bender.

Pea
08-28-2007, 11:30 AM
Nice of Radek to not show us his shark teeth. And geez Mikhail, I know it's a bad pic, but you're not aging gracefully.

Monaco's hair.:lol: And it's fitting that his pic is right next to Del Potro's.

Ferrero Forever
08-28-2007, 11:48 AM
Some of these are plain freaky. Tommy Robredo looks gorgeous like always, but some of the others are just weird. Baghdatis looks like he can't wait until it's over. Ancic and Almagro look pretty cute, but the worst one has gotta be Gonzo. Hopefully that photo is never seen again, he's too attractive to have that photo beside his name. His current photo is way too hot to be changed.

I'm surprised that they got a picture of Mahut with his shirt on. When I was in Cincinnati, I saw him about ten times without one, and I was beginning to think the poor guy didn't own any. Great abs.

Ma. Estefania

Gonzo looks like he is getting bold. :confused:

If u mean bald, yes...he's really getting bald.

I watched some time ago, a Chilean tv program, where they were talking about Feña's alopecia (sp?)...coz it's weird he's getting bald at his age.

Mateya
08-28-2007, 05:55 PM
Yes, I mean bald.
English isnt my mother language so..:rolleyes:

My uncle has this too, he lost his last hair at age 35. :confused:

Marat looks cute but most of the others look like shit.

As for Robredo being the best...that is one of the worst pics I have ever seen of him.

Radek doesn't actually look too bad...as someone else said, there are others who look a lot worse.

It's good to see there's no air brushing going on. Maybe the ATP's trying to make them look like regular people (and succeeding).

I don't know why they would do that though...:confused:

Seriously, looking at these examples again from the summer, they really need to invest in someone competent to shoot the pictures properly. It's a pity, seeing how these shots do none of them justice.

Tennis is a business, and the ATP brass has to promote a product. Get great people who know what they're doing, and show off the product in the best light. This is a misfire for sure.

Fensler
12-12-2007, 06:38 PM
does davydenko's head look ridiculously small.

I noticed that, too. He must have been sitting farther away from the camera than everyone else, based on how narrow his shoulders look in the pic. Either that or his head is actually shrinking.

over all I think it's nice that the pictures are uniform. are they all wearing the brands they're endorsing? maybe it will make nontennis fans think "look at all these serious-looking athletes. this is a serious sport. i bet there's no drug use/match-fixing going on here".

Surely someone else has noticed that Youznhy looks like a white Laurence Fishburne? It's uncanny! Anyone... :confused:

Arnaud, PHM and Richie look great. Maybe the french know how to strike a casual pose and not look like janitors.

It's a pity they didn't do Roger, Rafa and Andy, I'd be interested to see if they scrub up as well on a level playing field as everyone else. :aplot:
