Seriously people. We've got a major starting in a couple of hours, and this is what you're talking about? Oh, well, it's your time...
if you look through the thread you will see the original pic and the photoshopped version side by side. it is very very obvious it has been photoshopped.

I couldn't be bothered to read the whole thread because the recurring theme of "how dare they?!" was a bit much for me.

I'll take your word for it (thanks), however, that it was, indeed, changed to remove Mona's unfortunate skin problems. My assertion was that no one knows the truth behind this...i.e. whether or not she was asked permission, whether or not she likes or is angry about the end result, etc. (and that remains the same).

I find the self-righteous speculations a bit much. That's all. Moving on.

The WTA is shocking. I know Caroline has reasonably good skin but this image is soo clearly airbrushed!!

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

I think the WTA would love to choose players for their looks instead of their talents.

Lots of great champions then would never have been allowed to play. There are socalled sexy players who play boring tennis and ordinary looking players who play or played sexy tennis.
I know which matches I would watch, this is probably the reason for lots of empty stands throughout the years.

Bet nobody has ever made that link.

Re: Did the WTA airbrush Barthel's face?

Barthel after winning Paris (2012)



Is it just me or did they do it AGAIN?
Also the pics from the final that have been uploaded on the WTA website look photoshopped.
