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.)

Can't bid, but the self-portrait is priceless. Go for it Rogi fans who have the means to bid on this item. It's for a good cause, and honors a great man and athlete.

You are an artist, all around! It is pleasing, proportional, and recognizable. As for the tournament--why is it best 2 sets only for the top eight players is a bit of a mystery to me, as I see it as not having enough scope--put your stamp on it. They have their different styles, but not all that different, yet no one with your arsenal and genius. Let it out, Roger. ( Sweep all aside, as is right!)
