Indirectly perhaps. I think my style had already taken shape by the time I read Doonsbury but I was more than likely influenced by cartoonists who were themselves influenced by him. Gary Trudeau is brilliant.

Great stuff.

Didn't the Vika scenario actually happen to Chaky? (the hair, not the illegal device).

I think it did now you mention it. She didn't go through with the serve though did she?

For some vague reason, I remember this happening to Chakvetadze one other time, against Mauresmo. She might have been wearing 2 ponytails, bumping up the odds of it happening

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - pt 3 added

It was during a backhand followthrough, her ponytail got stuck to the edge of her racquet, during the Stanford Bank of the West classic final vs Mirza which she won in 2007.

Here is a handicam vid of the incident, the point starting at 2:48. Unfortunately the camera person doesn't keep Anna in screen during the time when she is disentangling her hair.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPMS0mFbyVg&t=2m48s

There was another clip of it on youtube and one on dailymotion I think but the account no longer exists, so I uploaded it again myself:


It was a really cute incident. I hope Anna can come back to play again so that she can give us more moments like that.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - #4 added

Just a short one this. I wanted to get Robby and Carla in before the clay season was over. And, given the title, I thought it was about time I drew the locker room.
