Art of tennis

27.09.2010 | Tennis

Roger once again proved his passion for art and tennis - but not on a tennis court this time. All players qualified for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals to be held in London (November 21 to 28) have been asked to create a work of art by hitting tennis balls covered in paint onto a canvas.

 

"It was great fun being invited to create my self portrait and I'm excited to see how the finished piece looks," Roger said. "Raising money for charity is always a great thing so already I would like to thank people who will buy these pictures and it's going to be for a good cause. I'm happy I can help a bit. I am very happy as it is the ninth consecutive year I have qualified for the year-end event. I have played in a lot of different venues during my career and I can say they staged a fantastic event at The O2 last year. I look forward to returning there in November and finishing the season strong."

 

The artworks will be on display for the public before being auctioned for charity. Discover all the information on the "Art of Tennis" on the ATP website.

I've seen lots of Roger's matches, esp. since 2006, and when Roger is at his best, aka 2010's AO against Murray, esp. on that 3rd set when he was down 2-5 and comin' back to take it in straight sets w/ 7-6, THAT WAS VERY GRATIFYING WIN ESP. AGAINST AN UPS

Dear *Yukimi* i can see clearly your idea. But why not share an opportunity to play as if it were a live-practice , with higher players. To win or lose is not the goal . The goal is to get into the heat before Shanghai. Nadal, Murray ,Djok, Davidenko, eve

Yeh **RF_4ever_GOAT**Nice artwOrk and thanks.

**Ghorgor*I understand your instinctive reaction & disappointment to Roger's 40 day absence but please remember he has to plan/time his Bursts of Energy.

To have it in you, first you must store it. So he
