But the posters is showing the finalists. If they were going for sheer populatiry, the poster would be Federer with Nadal/Hewitt, and Sharapova with Hingis.

The Aussies love Hingis.

This was a deliberate slap in the herpes-pocked face of Henin. I :hearts: it!!!

But Sharpie is the hottest thing in tennis right now, so they have to include her, it was the same last year - Serena (The Champ) and Maria...

Then again, after last year, you may be right ;)

The poster may not be necessarily showing the finalists, I know it shows the two men finalists, but this may not have bin the aim of the people who made it. Roger would have to be on the poster, he won and just because he's Roger Federer. Amelie was the champion, so that's why she made it. And I know Marcos got to the finals, but he was also very popular with the Australian crowds, so his popularity is probably the reason he is on the poster. And that's the same for Maria as well.

Not a surprise too see Maria on a poster about a tournament. Last May in Rome there were 2 big posters at the entrance after the ticket office:
1) 8-14 May ATP Rome with a big pic of Rafa Nadal and this is OK because he's the best on clay and above all he was the defending champion.
2) 15-21 May WTA Rome with a big pic of Maria Sharapova. :rolleyes: :help:

when i see federar n bagdatis, they seem to show last year finalist and not the popular players. i mean, federar/nadal or federar/hewitt, would be in there if they mean to go by popularity.

i think they should have put henin in...but it doesnt matter much, after all it is only a poster :p

One of the main intentions was obviously to put Maria on the poster, same thing as last year. Was she a finalist in 2005? Nope...

Dec 8th, 2006, 12:41 AM
No disrespect to Justine, but Sharapova is the easy choice. She is by far the most marketable female tennis player right now. She right now is probably at the same height Venus and Serena were at, at their peaks in 2000-2003.

Dec 8th, 2006, 12:58 AM
It's not only marketing. Otherwise, Hewitt or Roddick or Nadal or Safin would be on it. Not MB.
Who knows what it is, but Justine will survive just fine without being on it.

Exactly.

Sefo
Dec 8th, 2006, 01:07 AM
They should've come up with a 3+3 poster instead of 2+2. That way, Henin and probably Nadal would've had a seat.
I think there shouldn't wonder anyone that for a 1+1 version of this poster, it would be Sharapova to stay in, and Amelie tossed out, despite of being the defending champion.

saki
Dec 8th, 2006, 01:08 AM
I'm actually more suprised that Amelie is on it. She plays great tennis but she ain't exactly attracting punters with that face.

If I'd been the tournament organisers, I'd have put Sharapova and Hingis on it. I actually like both Justine and Amelie a lot more but the fact is that prettier women on the posters will sell more tickets.

ZeroSOFInfinity
Dec 8th, 2006, 01:25 AM
Jeez... I don't get what the fuss is about... it's just a freaking poster, not a card foretelling the future :tape:

If I were the tour organizers, I will still ask Maria to be placed inside the poster instead of Justine... remember, beauty sells :angel:

Junex
Dec 8th, 2006, 01:37 AM
When I saw this poster a week ago, my first reaction was "WTF"

But then I realized, Justine is just not a good marketing tool for GS posters...
They could put anyone they want, i am sure justine could'nt care....
She will always be the last one standing...and laughing...

Besides being on the poster doesn't benefit her anyway, the AO organizer could go on their way and intentions...

at the end of the tourney, It is Justine who will have another MIllion Dollars on her pocket!!!! :devil:

They printed this poster way before she won Madrid. Maria was on a winning streak from the US hardcourt summer.

I don't see what the big deal is. I would have put Maria on it to, and Baggy was used because there's huge Greek community in Australia. Even the non-Greeks prefer Baggy over Hewitt - besides Baggy is the new comer of the year in the men's side for 2006.


It's pretty risky printing a poster way in advance knowing that with injuries the faces might not even show up like the last time they printed promo material a few years back.

Had the AO's linesmen called the semifinal correctly, JHH doesn't make the Final.

Of course, if the AO weren't played on such a treacherous surface, Kim doesn't roll her ankle and Ame doesn't make the Final either.

If AO Organizers want better tennis in the Final, maybe they should pay attention to training their personnel and the surface it's played on. Who appears on a poster is a fatuous issue that Mary Carillo is sure to try to sensationalize if she can find an angle that really stabs a player or two in the back.

different scenarios

Roland Garros is a place where Justine has always been well received and adored and was defending chmapion

here she is like returning to the scene of the crime so it will be interesting to see how the Melbourne crowd treat her after she treated em with the most contempt back in January. Fans paying good money to see the way that went. I would of wanted a refund if I had gone.

I don't understand how you can consider them chosing to put a photo of Maria on the poster instead of Justine a "bomshell" :lol:

Maria is a very marketable player

Well after the stunt Justine pulled and the nonchalant attitude she had afterwards, I would have left her off too. I'll be interested to see how she's received at this Aussie Open. Fans don't forget foul play very easily.

Being a Serena fan, you should know!!!!!!!!!!!!

Same way as she was received at FO, Wimby and USO!!! Didn't everyone say on this board that she wouldn't win a GS this year and would amount to nothing in 2006 after the AO? :haha: :haha: :haha:

We aren't talking about beauty. We are talking about popularity, and Hingis has loads of it. The only way your fave would have loads of popularity is if herpes made you popular.

RG' 99 :haha: :haha:

Not much popularity there for baldie is there? :lol: :lol:

Baldie ... love it!

Who knows, Martina may have chlamydia or syphilis due to her being the slag of the WTA!!! Perhaps that's why she's going bald? :haha: :haha:

You didn't see pics of her as a kid did you...or else you must think she started REALLY early. :angel:

I guess they're still a tad hacked off with Justine for "getting ill" and retiring in the final, thus providing the organisation with the possibly the biggest damp squib you can ask for in place of a potential thriller (which we subsequently got in Wimbly). :tape:

Maria = more ticket sales = more revenue = all that the AO organizers care about :)

It REALLY is just that simple :)

Justine just isn't as popular here as Marcos, Maria and Roger. They're almost household names in Oz. Would have been nice to see Martina on it instead of Amelie. I mean, the poster should encapsulate the true essence of what the AO strives for, excellence, brilliance, athleticism, the best and legendaryness. Not some face of a woman who looks like she has sucked on a lemon. JHH is great, but save her for the FO posters. Roger is and will probably be on all posters for as long as he's around.

I reckon whoever's on the poster deserves to be there. i mean all of these players are talented & display championship qualities.

Obviously you aren't a fan :p But Martina has a huge following in Australia, the crowd loves her at the AO, so much so that this year she said that she felt the crowd treated her like an Aussie. She is much more popular here than JHH.

We all know Maria is hotter in looks than JHH, that's not rocket science is it?:rolleyes: But there was no need for insults.

You can dish it out, but you don't like it when it's dished back do you? :rolleyes:

But this thread is about AO ;) And I think the poster you quoted before originally mentioned her popularity in Australia.

Well lets see now.

Will they gain maximum exposure through a hot player, or an ugly one?

That explains their decision.

OK, no where in my post did I insult you. Secondly, did you not read the part where I write "I was just joking". Are you just looking for trouble, coz you've found it.

:cuckoo: :weird: Where did I say you insulted ME? You insulted JHH by saying what you said! :rolleyes: You then put in another post (not the same post where you insulted her may I add) that you were joking, AFTER you never got the reaction you thought you'd get :lol:

No I'm not looking for trouble, but seeing that I've found it, go ahead, believe you me ... I ain't worried ... bring it on. Ask the Daviator what I'm like when I get going, he'll tell you. So if you are challenging me, bring it on!:mad:

blame pierce 0415 for starting this stupid thread in the 1st place :rolleyes: but some of you's should be blamed also for just creating even more fuss :rolleyes: i'm not gonna name names cause I would get myself in a sticky situation that i would not want to be in.

Ok... you seem like some psychotic troll that has nothing better to do than ramble about crap. Where you mention "insults" nowhere do you state that I insulted JHH... do you expect me to read your thick mind or something? You see, I had to assume what you meant because of your pointless and senseless babbling.

'Reaction'? When I post things I don't look for reactions, if I feel a certain way, I'll write it. Lastly, I don't need to ask somebody else that you're a tool. Basically you're subtly telling me that you've got nothing better to do than to pick fights, simple as that.
