We all know of those infamous moments in the heat of competition when players' faces contort in all kinds of weird ways during rallies, through the stress of the situation or the physical demands of the match.

What notable expressions have surfaced (and remember pictoral evidence is vital here) for us to pour scorn on?

Here's my own starter, with apologies to all Spaniards:

Hahaha!!! I always thought Roger's tongue action was a bit freaky! But I think he is just sending signals to Nwando that he wants to kiss her. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

And Dokic the blowfish, but I realize this is ATP

Marat can pull some strange faces too, but it's adorable.
I'll look for pcs a bit later.

Yikes, at that first pic of marat :eek:

Rusedski does have an awful hitting face. He somehow manages to contort his face in such a way that makes him look as if hes just gotten a whiff of rotting trash (or his upper lip ;)).

Phillipoussis does this bizarre slack-jawed movement when he hits the ball. Ill try and find a pic later.

It's true that Rusedski has that irritating puffing-out-cheeks motion, but then so does Enqvist as my Aus Open pic shows - I think Roddick puffs out his cheeks when he serves.

Guga can look pretty amusing during his more flamboyant moments, though, especially when in full groaning mode. :D

As far as I can tell, Federer is the only player who doesn't contort his face at all but simply offers a languid tongue to the ball, as witnessed below:

LMAO @ Marat's pictures!!! :D

I guess he won't ever need plastic surgery with all those facial exercises he makes during matches! ;)
