Way to go MarcusRock! U da man! More than anything else, seeing pictures makes me feel like I'm there. A few comments on the pics ....

Bartoli needs to work on her modeling skills.

Big thumbs up to Dechy for smiling :)

Same for Fernandez, who's always smiling, even when she's playing! By the way, that's a very good picture of her.

Foretz looks like a dead man walking.

Kudos to Amy Frazier for the big smile.

Very good closeup of Hantuchova. That jump rope in the next shot looks thicker than her legs :)

Good shot of Hopkins and Cargill. How'd you get all these girls to smile?

O.K. I'm seeing a pattern here. The Russian girls all look like they want you to die as soon as possible :) I'd be scared to take their pictures! You're brave man! (u r a man, rnt u?)

Seles and Davenport both look like fundamentally, happy, people.

I still say that Shaughnessy's forehand is UGLY!

Is Zvonareva Russian? Wow - they do know how to smile! Guess you gotta catch them when they're young.

By the way, are you the one who said you were going to buy a digital camera a few weeks ago? Did you use it for these pics? How do you like it so far? You got these pics on-line very quickly. If I could make one request it would be for a few pics of the facility, the grounds, etc. Great job!

Wow, Clarisa seems like such a nice girl, she seems to be the only one genuinly smiling! :)
But then again: she smiles while hitting groundstrokes too... :o

Apr 15th, 2003, 10:20 AM
Hey! thanks! great pics!

(by some of those photos I am thinking some of the girls didn't faint when they saw how handsome you are! what's wrong with them!?! :( ;))

Did you get any sweaty towels? :D

Apr 15th, 2003, 10:30 AM
This is a great batch of pictures, nice in-your-face kind of photography. Too bad that the Yahoo! buggers limit the resolution to 400x300, these pics would be dynamite in full rez.

But some of these girls really need to c-h-i-l-l.

Panova stares at you as if you were a SARS patient. Cheer up, Tatiana.

Krasnoroutskaya appears to think that you just killed her cat with a Kalashnikov rifle. Bartoli looks like a teacher evicted her from the classroom with that sulky look on her face.

And Shooter is right about Foretz, we are just waiting for Sarandon and Penn to star in a movie about her life.

Barna simply seems astounded that someone recognizes her. Kudos for picking her up.

And... ooops... now the album is down again. Have you considered uploading your pictures to community.webshots.com?

No size limitations it seems (well, at least up to 1600x1200), and they have plenty of tennis galleries already. Check out Miguel Perez' (mipe2001) work for instance...

Apr 15th, 2003, 10:33 AM
My page says, "Cannot find server..." Help!

Apr 15th, 2003, 10:35 AM
Oh, here's the link to Mipe:


His pictures are from US tournaments last year, and they are well worth a look. To put it mildly. Webshots also seems to have a Marat Safin stalker among its tennis posters. ;)

I don't have any first-hand experience with this site myself, so I can't say for sure if it's actually free. But it does seem like it.

Apr 15th, 2003, 10:39 AM
Marcus - Can I put your photos on my site. I'll give you a copyright and acknowledge you and everything like that.

(If you say yeah, what do you want me to put as the copyright?)

Apr 15th, 2003, 12:29 PM
cant see em

Apr 15th, 2003, 12:40 PM
I'm working on the problem right now. As soon as I'm done, I'll have the words "Fixed Link" in the title.

Apr 15th, 2003, 01:05 PM
Done. Should work now.

Apr 15th, 2003, 01:07 PM

Apr 15th, 2003, 01:19 PM
Thanx ! Marvellous pics

Apr 15th, 2003, 01:27 PM
Uh oh. Looks like problems are arising again. If the pics give anyone trouble again, let me know in this thread and I'll check out that community.webshots.com thing and load the pictures on there after I get back from the tourney today. Thanks Iconoclast :)

Apr 15th, 2003, 01:28 PM
Hum... Marcus, I am sure you rock, but I still can't see the pictures :confused:

Apr 15th, 2003, 01:54 PM
I can't see them, either.

Apr 15th, 2003, 02:01 PM
I can't see 'em either, but I'd like to!

www.imagestation.com is also free so that's another option for you.

Apr 15th, 2003, 02:40 PM
WTAWorld desperately needs a jealousy icon.

Apr 15th, 2003, 02:49 PM
Great pics. Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to post them. I really appreciate it!

Apr 15th, 2003, 02:50 PM

Cant seeeeeeee..... :sad:

Just tested Webshots.

It's very good. Fast registering almost without any personal details provided. Easy to upload, especially if you download their little assistant, a ~500 kb program, which allows you to up multiple pics at a time.

Their only basic condition is that you own the copyright to the pictures.

Another fellow with some nice tennis galleries:

Apr 15th, 2003, 04:37 PM

I can't see Ansley's picture. :confused:Ansley is in the picture with Jennifer Hopkins. The pic is named Hopkins & Cargill so look under "H"

Apr 17th, 2003, 03:22 AM

Apr 17th, 2003, 04:33 AM
MarcusRock, did you get some kind of special guest pass to access the court and other restricted areas????

Apr 17th, 2003, 12:20 PM
This is a great batch of pictures, nice in-your-face kind of photography. Too bad that the Yahoo! buggers limit the resolution to 400x300, these pics would be dynamite in full rez.Actually, I resized them to 400x300 because they are a b*tch to upload using this laptop modem. I still have all the originals at their regular size.Bartoli looks like a teacher evicted her from the classroom with that sulky look on her face.Actually before I took that pic, she had just lost her match and her coach was lecturing her on a practice court. She didn't appear to be listening. Man that guy can talk. I waited for at least 15 minutes before I just jumped in and asked for a pic.

Apr 17th, 2003, 12:23 PM
MarcusRock, do you have like some kind of a special pass to access these areas???Nope. These players walk around the tournament grounds like this. Seriously.

Apr 17th, 2003, 12:49 PM
wow that is so cool!!! wouldn't there be like a lot of people chasing after players then :confused:

Apr 17th, 2003, 12:56 PM
Not as many as you'd think. You have to be on the lookout and ready or they could walk right past you and it'll be too late before you realize.

Apr 17th, 2003, 01:56 PM
so u must be at the practice courts often eh ;)

Apr 17th, 2003, 02:13 PM
holy banana Alyona baby gurl... such a hottie!!!!!
ur right MAC she need a new clothing deal but she should keep using yonex for rackets fo sho!!...perhaps she should go with reebok!!!!!!!!

Apr 18th, 2003, 02:53 PM
Well, no more pics to add so you'll find the final tally on the site.

Apr 18th, 2003, 06:27 PM
Marcus, would you be so kind to send the pics of Els in full size (unreduced) to rhythmboy25@hotmail.com? It's for my website and they are rather small :( If not, it's okay, you already made my week :DNo problem. I have them on my laptop so I'll send those out to you later on today.
