Hopman Cup - Billboard Ad

I just drove past a Billboard advertising the Hopman Cup. I was shocked as at first I thought Is that Anna Kournikova? why would they use her? I think it was Alicia Molik and maybe Federer (looking upto the big picture it really looked like Anna's Cheeks). I had large trucks behind me and wasn't in the best position to stop and have a proper look. I've gone onto the Hopman Cup website trying to find the same picture, but have had no success. Has anyone else seen this poster and could you confirm if it was Alica and Roger? The slogan said something about my team or team?

LOL @ confusing Molik with Kournikova. I saw a huge picture of Anna outside Sports Experts today... they still love using her for Adidas promotion.

Re: Hopman Cup - Billboard Ad

Why would they put Roger on the poster? He's not playing

It might have been Mark

Re: Hopman Cup - Billboard Ad

Yeah, I agree it was probably Mark but I only had a quick look and was more interested in the girl. The guy had dark brown hair and it did say something about our team.

If you look at these two pics you can see some similarities between Alicia and Anna. They both have nice cheek bones.

only similarity from what i can see is the long hair from both of these girls.

Speaking of billboards, i saw a billboard advertising the Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts on a main road in an area on the gold coast which had Hingis, Schnyder & Safarova with her trophy on the front. So no surprises there.

Yeah I guess at a very quick glance at these two pictures one could confuse the two, but Alicia looks NOTHING like Anna when she is on the court. Not that Alicia looks unattractive oncourt, just Anna and her are different.

Re: Hopman Cup - Billboard Ad

The Hopman Cup slogan this year is : "The Event of the West."

go hingis, I think you probably mistook Alicia Molik and Mario Ancic for Anna Kournikova and Roger Federer. Ancic wears similar clothing to Federer on the posters and his hair is also very similar. Seen at a passing glance, it would be very easy to mistake the two. Same with Molik and Kournikova. They also wear the same clothing brand and have the blonde thing going on.
