Where did you get the chutzpah to be so disgusting about Mona anyway? Your beloved Aga is not exactly Miss Universe material, is she?
And people have no problems calling her ugly on this very board. Oh the double standards.

Yes, but highlighting that WTA's website airbrushes Barthel's as some sort of evil deed when WTA's website airbrushes every player is extremely weird. They do terrible job in general, every player on the website looks like covered in wax.

But let's not forget that WTA's beauty queens are also photoshopped whenever possible. Here's an example:



I never see an uproar about this, in fact Sharapova's fanbase loves to put airbrushed pictures in their avatars/signatures and no one calls anyone 'shallow' or whatever.

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

Dude, that is promo-shoot photo, everybody knows those are doctored.

Action shots aren't supposed to be touched up, they are supposed to show the person in their state during the match. It's not a fashion shoot... the WTA is probably the only sporting organization that doctors its action shots.

The dumb thing is that they take shots from Getty that appear on countless other websites as well..in their undoctored form like it's supposed to be..making the WTA look foolish.

Well I'm not surprised that Barthel and Sharapova are photoshopped... Not all can have Agnieszka's natural beauty...

But why the uproar is there only when they airbrush Mona's face? It's their standard practice.

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

Um, whats wrong with the W airbrushing? Mona has a bad acne problem. I have no problem with the W airbrushing pics to make them presentable.

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

According to the pictures on her own website, Mona likes photoshopped images.
The trophy picture on her homepage looks more flattering than all the other ones.
Just take a look at this:

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

Exactly. Some of the politically correct people on this board make me chuckle.

So the "W" simply "airbrushed" a few pimples...

WOW! So uncalled for! Shame on them!

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

Problem is there alot of shalow people in this world who are just judging everybody by the looks. The whole photoshop mania is just making it worse in my eyes.

This board isn't that holy either as there are tons of juvenile posts making fun of Alizé's nose, Caro's forehead, Sabine's teeth etc.

Often the ones who make fun of others looks aren't that good looking either and are trying to hide their complexes by judging other people.

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

Shame.
And I'll never understand what's so ugly about Maria's freckles. I wish she'd expose them. Impossible to fit in everybody's tastes, so why not just be ourselves?

THIS!!!! Different strokes for different folks! There's absolutely no problem airbrushing acne spots ...and OH Beauty is skin deep. Most of the players considered 'beautiful' by many on this board, are actually ugly TBH, I could name them & their flaws, but who am I to judge? Every1 has their preferences of beauty traits, let's leave it at that
