Those are very nice pictures.

The Clement ones are especially nice. :)

Very nice pics. The "who is it" section is tough. The first two seem familiar looking, though.

'Who is it' - here's what I think

1. Calleri
2. don't know not familiar with woman players
3. Volandri
4. don't know but right now my brain is not working

The picture site is not working here.. Unfortunately!

The main site is working, so I can only see the 'temporary 2004 pictures'.. Is anyone else having this problem?

yes, the site seems to be down sometimes... just think that i have to pay to upload those pics :mad:

if you see justine and lleyton appearing at the 2nd post then it's working.

never knew the 'who is it' would attract that much attention, lol !!!

Site is working now! Nice pics :)
And a bald James looks weird..

My guesses for "Who is it?":

1. Agustin Calleri
2. Katarina Srebotnik (I don't think it is her, but it is my best guess)
3. Filippo Volandri
4. Fernando Verdasco (Sorry, not a clue)

When are you going to post the results?

lol...... there is no right answer, only consensus. lol!!!

yes i actually knew the 3rd one was volandri. i don't know about the others... i don't get cable tv, and i didn't approach them to ask what their name was ;)

funny the first one should be calleri, because i was at his match with mirnyi, but i didn't recognise it was the same guy...

Hispanica

Yeah, the first one is Calleri.. no way it's not him

Leo
01-21-2004, 02:28 AM
You're right, the first one is Calleri. I didn't recognize him without his long hair. I think CooCoo is right about the second one; looks like Katerina Srebotnik.

No clue about the last two.

Hispanica

I'm also sure the third one is Volandri.. i saw him play twicelive last year and there is no doubt.

Leo
01-21-2004, 02:31 AM
Oh, really? He looks different to me in that picture, maybe just because it's not that close up.

I think the 4th one will forever remain a mystery.

Hispanica
01-21-2004, 03:09 AM
Yep, exactly Leo... but on the back I'd say it is Montanes or Sanchez... A spamish one anyways

Via
01-21-2004, 03:31 AM
yes....the 4th one spoke spanish

no other clue, and like i said before, i don't know :)

Hispanica
01-21-2004, 03:35 AM
I'll try to find out

Via
01-21-2004, 03:38 AM
when i have all the answers, i'll change the titles to the pics, and give you guys credit! :)

Hispanica

Well, I've done some research with the draws.... was this picture taken before the qualies?

if not and during the tournament, then It's Ruben Ramirez, if it was taken before the qualies or during, it could be Verdasco as well.

and on the back it's Montanes I'm sure of that.

Via

the pic was taken 12 jan, after the qualies. but many players stayed on at the tournament after they lost, to practise.

Hispanica
01-21-2004, 04:51 AM
ok
After having a closer look I really think it's Ruben.. just ask the other what they think.

For the woman, I can't help you cause I don't follow the wta

OK Via, I am 100% sure on Volandri and Calleri, and now 98% sure on Katarina Srebotnik.

Does Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo have long hair? It could still be Fernando Verdasco.. But I am not sure :p

Hispanica
01-21-2004, 02:57 PM
Yes, I checked for Ruben on the atp site.

CooCooCachoo
01-21-2004, 03:02 PM
Yeah, it could be him.. I saw the picture too on the ATP Site but I'm still not sure ;)

Hispanica
01-21-2004, 03:21 PM
It looks more like him than verdasco... Just the profile.

Nacho
01-21-2004, 03:35 PM
I'm 90% sure he's David Ferrer.

Verdasco has darker skin and Ramirez is thinner and older (he's almost 30)

I saw David Ferrer against Schalken today. He did have large hair and an ugly face.. Could be!

Hispanica
01-21-2004, 11:48 PM
Yeah, could be too cause he played the qualies in Sydney

CooCooCachoo

All the Spanish look alike :p Except Tommy, JC, Albert, Alex, Juan (Balcells), Fernando.. Uhm ok not all Spanish look alike ;)

Hispanica
01-22-2004, 03:21 PM
:) :rolls:

Well, there are four of them wiht long hair: Ramirez, Feliciano, Verdasco and Ferrer...

We could play 'happy families' (kwartet in Dutch) then! lol..

Hispanica

hi..... i've edited the titles/captions in the gallery to reflect your contributions. thanks mucho!!!! the 4th one i will leave it as 'doubtful'... i've checked their profile pics at the atp etc but none of them look familiar. i was sort of watching that guy for quite a while when he was doing his 'ball game' exercise, so i should recognise him if i see him again.... i think? anyway, there is it: http://www.pbase.com/vtp/who_is_it__adidas_2004

Teehee I am on the Internet now lol (OK That sounds dumb, since I am as well, by posting these messages..)

jumi
01-25-2004, 03:28 PM
It's David Ferrer, I'm 100% sure about that one:)
Here are the proofs:

Seems like it. Good catch Jumi!

Via
01-25-2004, 11:26 PM
thanks jumi...... you must understand that this is what i see on the atp website profile...

http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/playerprofiles/images/F401_AT.jpg

so it's hard to connect the two!!

but thanks to all for the help :worship:
