Disgusting. Mona looks better with her acne than this photoshop 'work'

They did.

When Kvitova won Linz, she had some nasty pimples between her eyebrows, and they brushed those out for the photo used on the WTA website.

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

IF the wta has photoshopped mona what more proof do people need the wta is only intrested in the image and style of the players not their personalities and how they play. i mean this is a tour sponsored by a make up company.

the wta is all about sex, image and putting on a front, it is so annoying for real tennis fans.

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

I have serious doubts that they'll even put up photos with her and the trophy in a dress. She might bail them out by wanting to catch a quick flight to melbourne.

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

Don't think it's photoshopped, the shade from her visor on her face makes the bad skin less noticeable.

I think the photoshop is the best idea. WTA is still a business and doing anything you can to improve the image is good. It shows a lot more effort and interest in the success of these ladies rather then just slapping together any picture they could find.

Isn't it exhausting to go to thread to thread lambasting the WTA in such a self-righteous manner?

Is your perfect tour has 15 events all in Europe, all top players must play, and never partake in a photo shoot of any kind ? Sounds like a failure to me.

And it just perpetuates people being conditioned to seeing "mannequins" and thinking it's real.

Totally agree with this.

If I was in Barthel's position, I'd want to be airbrushed tbh.

Would you have a problem with it if they photoshopped a picture of Dominika Cibulkova to make her boobs look bigger?
