Australian Open Ad

I haven't been on for a while, so I'm not sure if this has been discussed or not. Is it just me, or are the new Aussie Open ads kinda stupid? Serena in that horrible catsuit...Kim with breast implants...Lleyton looking like a paler version of The Hulk....

C'mon Kim

They are definetly different!! LOL
They r portraying the players as 'super heros' which is nice coz lots of them are.
Least Lleyton gets the most muscles.

We will miss you Kim!.


Best of Luck in 2007 to: Kim & Bryan, Lleyton, Alicia, Todd, Sam, Chris, Casey, Wayne, Kirsten & all the other Aussies & injured players.

Yeah, but the illustrations are really unflattering. The only people it's gonna encourage to come to the Australian Open are 10 year old boys.

I'm not suprised they didn't bother with them. Most Aussies don't like Mark and don't know Alicia. They're not aiming the ad at the Aussies who are already tennis fans and will come to the open anyway...they're trying to attract people who only know a little bit about tennis or used to be tennis fans and so will be attracted to the stars on the ad.

Anyway, I maintain that I really don't like the ad.

I agree, childish and not appropriate for a tennis grand slam.

It embarrasses Australia as well

i think it is a crap and stupid ad. childish yes, it could have been okay if they didn't emphasis the players muscles, it could have attracted more kids which i think was probably their goal. australian sport, tennis soccer and a few others haven't been in great shape in-terms of number youngsters joining up and kids enjoy cartoons and superheros. if it wasn't done to atrract the kids then i'm ebarrassed for not only tennis australia, but the australian open, the players in the ad and australia as a whole.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.
