Models Again Instead of Ballkids in Madrid Masters-Series !!!

Woman Models will act as ballkids in 8 matches of Madrid Masters-Series 2006, the night match from Monday-Friday, Semifinals and Final.

This year the models have to pass some castings, they have to show knowledge in Tennis and English, last year the sponsor, HUGO BOSS, got a lot of publicity and was a big success for them.

Also this year the skirt will be shorter in order to help the girls to run :p

You can see photos of the castings here:

I hear they may have topless male models for the womens tour so it should be awesome. Good for Amelie, bad for her opponents

I think it is great for Europe where having beautiful long-legged girls in short skirts bending over is classy and cultured, but that it would be bad in the U.S. where it would just be coarse, money grubbing, and disgustingly commercial. :p :p :p

It sucks, they get paid and they donīt give a shit about the game. On the opposite side, kids love the game, make their dream come true watching their idols and donīt want to sleep with them........ :devil:

For another year it will be a nightmare trying to explain those chicken brains chicks the tiebreak rules

Where did you hear/read this? WTAWorld? :lol: It'd be interesting.

But seriously, I don't like models replacing ballkids purely because it's such a great experience for all the kids who do it, while for most models is just another job.

I went through the pictures--and, um, you have to ask--

Are these girls really MODELS, or just pretty girls who auditioned for the job?

People use the word Model too loosely. This brings to mind Andy Roddick's old girlfriend Lauren Bedford who was allegedly a model :rolleyes: , but I have never seen a picture of her actually modeling...anything--EVER. She's a supposed pretty girl, nothing more...like these girls here.

And that's a memo.

:lol: :lol:


J/K, well not really.

Well, if you do one photoshoot at some aweful photographer, you're already a model these days aren't you? ;)
These girls aren't even exceptionally pretty. So I'm with you on this one ;)

Anyway, if they wanna promote their tournament this way...
Didn't hurt Marat's performance last year, so bring them on I say :p ;)

Most of them were ugly twigs that looked like they were going to break if they caught a tennis ball. So, no, I don't like it.

hmm.... let's think positively..... :scratch: maybe they can retrieve balls faster with the long legs...?

As long as Marat wants to show off in front of them and grabs the title once again, i'm fine with that :cool:

They don't really bother me one way or another - and to be hoenst, when I was in Madrid last year, people hardly noticed them after the intial "oh look - there's those models we read about" kind of way. Like CooCoo says - most of them were far too thin and scrawny to be that attractive anyway - and as most of the players have much more attractive girlfriends in tow I doubt they distract the participants.

I think it was not so bad, but I agree with what some have said that it takes away from the tradition and ball kids dream come true and experience. But at the same time, it gives those pretty Spanish models a job and gig because modelling can be an unstable career.

marat is the one who didnt want them to touch his towel. agassi would smile and them when they were delayed in doing something and oddly didnt get as irritated with them as he does the ball kids. his family was just mentioned to note that it wasnt just pleasing to the single players!1
