Signed Self-Portrait & Racquet

20.11.2010 | Off Court, Starseite 3

In celebration of Roger's qualification for the 2010 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, the ATP has released his one-of-a-kind self-portrait and racquet for auction! Created using paint covered tennis balls, the piece marks Roger's participation in this year’s season-ending event.

The unique 'Art Of Tennis' collection will be exhibited at the O2 from 21-28 November during the week of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

"It was great fun being invited to create my self portrait and I'm excited to see how the finished piece looks. 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." said Roger.

  • 1220mm (48 in.) x 1400 mm ( 55 in.) x 25 mm (1 in.)

Dear Roger,
What a great end to the year to seal victory in the last game of the year- ATP final. I thouroughly enjoyed all your games. It was a joy to watch, particularly when U R at the top of your game. U R like Monet with a blank canvass. I was overjoyed when U demolished Andy Murray in his own back yard and also very pleasing when you beat Rafa in the final. We now know who is the real king of Tennis. Many Congratulations . Best wishes for the festive season and GOOD LUCK 4 2011. Ismet
