A new waxwork figure of Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal is unveiled at a photocall in Regents Park in central London, on May 23, 2012. The waxwork will later take up residence amongst other sporting stars at the Madame Tussauds museum in London.
On winning DC and its overall importance in the discussion for all-time greats

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
More symmetric face than the original. Should have "uglied it up" a little and it would look more real. Now it looks like a photo of Nadal that someone went to town with in photoshop. Still good I guess.
Well, Nole was done by some local art school dropout, this is pro work
