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 :confused: ?

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

They did a bad job of drawing him though :o

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..

yeah - I must say I think that poster is quite crap! I could have come up with something better probably! ;)

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?

That poster is nasty, but obviously Kim looks horrible like always.

I think Justine and JCF would have made great superheroes...I woulda' made Justine look like speedy Gonalez.

Doesn't Australia realize that Dandy Andy Doodle is God???

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/Super%20Hero%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 :lol:

They need to put kimmyK's head on llyeton's body and vice versa

Paradorn Srichaphan Spell-binding Humility

Oh dear, Paradorn rather got stuck with the short straw here :haha:

To have neither current world no 1 on the poster is a bit strange.

ug!

I started a thread on this in the Aussie forum. They've been bombarding our television screens with that horrible ad!

It's the most unflattering, disgusting thing I've ever seen. Poor Serena! I'm sure she regrets wearing that catsuit enough already . . . and now she has to relive it when she sees this poster.

Serena looks fine. What's the problem? Pity Juju isn't there. Momo would look great as a superheroine, but her less-than-worldbeating recent results wouldn't justify using her. But no Juju!!.... lmao

:eek: @Lleyton. For a second I thought it was supposed to be Roddick with all those muscles. Oh well, I guess it is meant to be the players whom the general public in Australia might recognise.

persond.

What a silly poster. You would think they could have hired somebody who could draw.
