I read it differently: I think Bobito drew what Maria "saw". She believed she was playing Cornet, so she "saw" Cornet. But in reality it was still Serena, serve and all.

That's how I see it, too.

That's a lot of suggesting and implying IMO. The strip doesn't say a word about Cornet's own entourage, as it's a 'Sharapova-centric' cartoon

This waits for Bobito to resolve the interpretation dispute.

Not sure Alizé can afford an entourage big enough to include a hypnotherapist. That's a top 3, career slam, Nike sponsored entourage Masha's got there.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room

Are you guys still able to see it? I get this photo unavailable image now

To me it was clear that it was what Maria was seeing. She thought she was playing Alize although in reality it was Serena, and she couldn't believe the serve going past her at a million miles an hour.

Yeah, I can see both cartoons perfectly. Must be something with your settings or browser version or something

Immense fun to draw that one.

Sometimes when you are drawing something you see things that you wouldn't normally notice. When Serena bends double and shouts come on, it's as though clenching her fist isn't enough and she's trying to turn her whole body into a giant fist.

If you want to show the competative instict in one picture, that's it right there.
