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.)

wow!! Great thing to do Roger...
I wish I could buy the portrait because it is pretty expensive for me!!
You are really great..I mean not many players raise funds for the welfare of children...
You played extremely well against David...And I am sure you are going to play another superb match against Murray..GOOD LUCK!

Good win Roger Ferrer played tough and match closer than score suggests as you generously acknowledged. Saw Murray in pm, couldn't stay for your match but saw on tv. Murray played v well and Sod badly, wooden. Lot of contradictory comments about surface. Slow but fast ?! ball bounces low anyway, not good for RN maybe suits none but Murray, difficult to play at net as Sod found to his cost. Can't wait for tomorrow. AM will be tough, but get on top of him, he was very cocky. Love
