Tennis fans chose 4 players to be on the cover of AO 2013

Quote:
Tennis Fanatics were allowed to choose the top four players for the Australian Open 2013 cover via voting and the lists are finally out. The players that have managed to secure a place in the cover of the New Year’s first Grand Slam tournament are the second ranked Russian blonde, Maria Sharapova, who will share a picture with the 11-time Grand Slam Champion, Rafael Nadal. These two players will be on the left-hand side of the cover photo. On the right side, it will be none other than the 17-time Grand Slam Champion, Roger Federer, who will be accompanied by the second woman in the history of tennis to claim a Career Gold Slam, Serena Williams. These four players will grace the cover of the Official Program for the event.
both #1 and defending champions failed to be chosen , probably will be added by organizers

What if Nadal doesn't even play the Australian? There should always be some sort of respect paid to the most recent champions.

Despite Djokovic and Murray being very much a part of the media/ATP's big four campaign, the general public and endorsers are only here for Nadal and Fed.

NID. They'll probably throw Novak and the Demon Spawn in because they're both #1 and both defending titles.

the more funny is that both #1 and defending champs together collected less votes than Nadal alone , who didn't play since Wimbledon

I guess we'll have to wait for a couple of beatdowns given to Martha by Vika at Aussie Open and to make tards forget about the Shrieking Razor.
The Olderer and Martha have no legits to be on the pics and shoul've been replaced by the defending champs Djoko and Vika.

Vika
Serena

Olderer did win a slam this year and is the most popular tennis player in the world.
