It's a very smooth lawn if you ask me.;)

it's perfect....

It says "Lawn Tennis" hence the apperance of a lawn or something
and below it says "...and US open preview"
hence the other half is a hard court!

Lawn Tennis is just the name of the magazine.

uh.... When have you ever seen Roger play a tournament in a sleeveless shirt? I mean, that looks like one of the North American hard TMS hard courts and I don't think Roger has ever worn a sleeveless shirt there.

I don't think it's Roger either, star. To me, it looks like F.Lo or Melzer (yes, I know they're lefties....)

Roger doesn't wear sleeveless shirts in tournaments and he's always got a Nike wristband on, too. This guy has neither.

And yeah, nice soft lawn too. :lol:

I didn't even notice the wrist band. :)

But the shorts don't look the same either.

And oops! No swoosh on the shirt or the shorts. :eek:

I've seen Roger wear a sleeveless shirt in practice though. But, is that even a nike shirt?

The swoosh is definitely on the headband.

WHOA.

I don't know if it's me, but it kinda looks Photoshopped :scratch:

:lol: C'mon, guys! Of course it's our skinny Roge on the cover of Lawn Tennis hitting his one-handed backhand and the picture is probably taken on a practice court in Cincy or in the desert. Federer has a habit of biting (or sucking) on his upper lip, also clearly a Wilson racket with white grip. Lopez or Melzer might be fine hardcourt specialists :devil: but ...the cover?
The whole outfit is kind of weird though, for sure. :D

The whole outfit is kind of weird though, for sure. :DWell, Cincy's just across the border from Kentucky, the Bluegrass State. And the court's blue. Maybe the magazine folks actually thought he was playing on blue grass . . . ;)

He's not hitting on the practice court in Indian Wells. The background is all wrong. But that's definitely one of the Masters Series courts in North America. :)

Not his current racquet paint job... But I cannot read the year it came out. September something or other.

And, by the way, Star, it is not all that different from the one in Indian Wells:

He looks like Moya...just a little less ripped.

And less hot. And less tall. And less Spanish.

AND he's hitting a backhand. How can that look like Carlos?

Thanks for that pic, Marti :wavey: Even up close he doesn't look like RogerRoger. He looks more like FLoRoger. ;)

AND he's hitting a backhand. How can that look like Carlos?

LOL.

very good photoshop work.

It's definately NOT Roger's TORSO and arms. That is his racquet, Hyper Hammer 6.1 upgrade---prior to being nCoded.
