I like the Blake/Davydenko one. :haha: It reminds me of posters who think they're clowns (not that I do, just reminds me of the posters).

:haha: Thank you so much for posting these!

The one about Nadal and running down smashes is cool! ;)

Thank you, J'torian!
Fun article (But I have to say your signature is funnier than the comic strips)

(Roger meeting some Japanese fans. The captions show Roger mispronouncing "Konnichi wa" and a fan mispronouncing "Nice to meet you." :haha: )

Mirka.. LOL

Wow. This gets published? Very poorly executed and poor sense of humour, IMO.

02-12-2007, 10:49 AM
very interesting

thanks, j'torian...your sig is fun and funny :) i like the extra wide court for Nadal one...actually Roger would beat him on that easier :) Mirka and her Japanese made easy is cute, too...

(Roger meeting some Japanese fans. The captions show Roger mispronouncing "Konnichi wa" and a fan mispronouncing "Nice to meet you." :haha: )


Overall I found these manga to be quite funny;)
However this one of Federer & Mirka meeting some Japanese fans is actually quite rude towards Mirka:eek:
I checked my dictionary with the kanji I didn`t know & 貴族 = nobility/aristocrat.... #Basically it`s incinuating that Mirka doesn`t want Roger to waste time with his "common people" Japanese fans because he had better spend his time charming the Japanese upper class [royalty perhaps]...

On the one hand this could be seen as viewing Mirka as a gold digger:eek: :confused:
Also it`s rather insulting towards Japanese fans in general [even though it`s a Japanese publication]...
Either way this joke was in poor taste:o

Thanks a lot, J'torian! :lol:

Suktuen's drawings are a lot better than these crude scribblings. You can barely tell who's who.

The Safin one particularly puzzles me.

thanks for posting this !! :)

:confused: You have the kanji wrong though: it's not 貴族 ("kizoku" - "aristocrat"), but 皇族 ("kouzoku" - "imperial family"). I don't think it was meant to be a joke since he played a bit of tennis with Prince Naruhito last fall when he was in Tokyo. :shrug:

Nevertheless, I agree with those of you who've been commenting on how bad the quality of these drawings are - but therein lies the humor. :haha::haha::haha:

Oh I see~ sorry my bad [皇族ですね、なるほど];) ..

BTW, J`torian do you live in Japan??

I`m in Fukuoka..

Nice drawing :yeah: and quite funny :lol:

Aren't caricatures supposed to be funny? :scratch:

02-12-2007, 05:07 PM
at least a good moment after a weekend of tragedy... :yeah:

i enjoy them... japanese humour is always a bit silly for me, it's so clean like it's meant for kids, but i like a laugh anyway.

Thanks for posting these... I find them hilarious, perhaps just because of the rather bad sense of humour (if any at all - perhaps it's just a cultural thing, of course :rolleyes: ).
As for the drawings, they're caricatures, and as such not carried out badly at all. I had no problem recognizing any of the represented characters. Though I might say the 'artist' may have been a little too friendly to Rafa in comparison with the others. ;)

Oh, I wish! :lol: 僕は米国の韓国人なんです。 ;) 貴方日本人? 外国人? 福岡はどうだ? :hearts:

J`torian mate;)
米国の韓国人~国際的ですね。:cool: 。英語、韓国語と日本語は全部分かるでしょう~賢い:angel: 。

(And hopefully it's a refreshing change from threads where Tard Faction X argues against Tard Faction Y or threads where people post passive aggressive comments in the hopes of starting drama. ;) There was a short comic strip of Roger and Mirka sitting next to Tony Roche and discussing ways Roger could beat Rafa. Roche suddenly pipes up, saying, "Just play left-handed and you could beat him for sure!" :tape: which Mirka and Roger go: "Oh, were you awake?" :haha: I didn't scan it because I was afraid posting it would turn the thread into another Roger vs. Rafa pissing contest. :o)

i was asking people about 'fan fiction' a while ago here... i guess such a story would be a related type of that genre :tape:

ae wowww

They're quite good :D Accurate drawings, typical captions :tape: Mauresmo's biceps bigger than Nadal's!
