Question Can you identify all the players in the official 2004 Aussie Open poster?

Depicted as super-heroes, most players in the official 2004 Aussie Open are easily recognizable, but can you identify the player to the far left ?

The one on the far left is supposed to be Rogi Federer.

They did a bad job of drawing him though

The picture of Roger almost reminds me slightly of David Nalbandian.

Serena has longer legs than lleyton, but shorter upper body. Kim looks quite weak except for that power bracelet she has...

grose..

It's somewhat fascinating that they picked Kim over Justine, but they consider her an Aussie. Certainly in spirit, eventually (they hope) officially, so I guess it's not all THAT surprising.

But what if Australia plays Belgium in Fed Cup?

They thought that if they would have to draw him with muscles, that it would look to unrealistic.

Here are the rest in power point format. In another thread, a poster was kind enough to make them all into compressed pics...but I can't seem to find the thread.

Here's the presentation anyway:
http://www.ausopen.com.au/Powerpoint...ero%20Pres.pps

and here are the cheesy superpowers you can expect:

Lleyton Hewitt Blinding Speed
Andre Agassi Bullet-like Return
Juan Carlos Ferrero Stinging Groundstrokes
Andy Roddick Thunderbolt Forehand
Mark Philippoussis Missile-like Return
Roger Federer Magical Racquetwork
Paradorn Srichaphan Spell-binding Humility

Serena Williams Intimidating Force
Justine Henin-Hardenne Backhand Brilliance
Kim Clijsters Pushing the Limits
Venus Williams Amazing Agility
Jennifer Capriati Burning Talent

seems like they did a half-assed job on this one. The consensus seemed to be that they did an especially poor job of Rogi, Justine, Venus and JenCap and Serena looked a bit too much like Aunt Jemima...Potato was good though
