    Please tell the Adidas people that the man and woman swinging the rackets look like total phonies. They are not real tennis players. Nobody would be holding the racket that way or be in that pose after hitting a tennis ball. Admittedly, the guy model looks like Nadal, so that's one positive.

    USS Tang,

    The two players in the ad are actually top 25 tennis professional players. The male is Fernando Verdasco who is #24 currently and made it to the semifinals of the Australian Open in 2009 and has been in the top 10. The female player is Ana Ivanovic who is #13 in the WTA and is a finalist of the Australian Open and winner of the French Open in 2008.

    Brittany, TW

    Yeah, but if they continue to swing like that, they're going to smash their racquets together. ;)

    They still look pretty awkward, the way they're holding their rackets.

    Ana also a former #1, but is she even a real tennis player?

    If you think a woman who's number 13 IN THE WORLD isn't "a real tennis player," you're just not very bright. Sorry; it drives me nuts when people make comments like that. Her looks and endorsements don't get her ranking points, you know.
