A Look at the 2014 FedEx ATP Performance Zone Photos

While keeping up with the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships at work using the live tracker on the ATP website, I came across this picture.

FedEx ATP Performance Zone

It is part of an advertisement for the FedEx ATP Performance Zone.

I was struck with some thoughts on the facial expressions of all four players featured.

Andy Murray looks disinterested yet angry…and also a little sunburned.

Novak Djokovic looks hungry to reclaim the number one ranking again.

Roger Federer’s face seems to be saying. “Hey! Wait for me!” as the others surpass his greatness and leave him in the ashes of mediocrity, his flames of glory having burned out long ago.

But my favorite is Nadal. He is showing us his Rico Suave face. “Hello, ladies. My name is Rafael Nadal and I want to be your Latin lover,” it seems to say. I also have to applaud him also for managing to get his ultra muscular left arm into a headshot. Way to show off those guns, Rafa.

Clothes don’t make the man

Novak Djokovic muscled out Stanislas Wawrinka in a five-setter that went 12-10 in the fifth set in the fourth round at the Australian Open–and nearly gave me a heart attack in the process. It should be illegal to do that to a girl.

Following the marathon thriller, Djokovic, as he did following last year’s Aussie Open final, ripped his shirt off like the Incredible Hulk.  So the clothing that made headlines in the match wasn’t what Djokovic wore, it’s what he didn’t wear. I’ll admit, seeing Djokovic shirtless makes me forgive him for nearly killing me from all the fourth and fifth set stress.

Novak Djokovic is...the Incredible Hulk
