    I hope somone can help me.

    I'm searching for a high quality, non creased picture of the Lendl "cat-face" for use in a paintjob. The only ones i can find with Google have creases/folds in them.

    For people wondering what i'm talking about:

    It's indeed a GTX Pro. Been thinking about a paintjob for the last few weeks, finally decided on the "cat".

    It's the embodiment of classic 80's design. I still remember doing a 40 kilometers trek on my bike to get the track suit sometime in '88, unfortunately i threw it out 10 years ago.

    I was watching tennis all through the 80's and never realised there was a "face", just thought it was wavy colours!!!!!

    In fact I bought a tennis bag with same design last year, and still didn't see the "face", amazing:)

    And it's one of my favourite designs, how did I not see the "face", quite worrying really:(

    Sounds great :) Incidentally the "Catface" was inspired by the surrealist designs of spanish artist Salvador Dali, whilst the original Edberg signature line borrows from the colourful designs of Joan Miro. Adidas' designers in the 80's put their art lessons to good use.

    edberg beating the best in the world with a continental forehand was more absurd/obscure/surreal/deconstructionist than anything found in the museum

    Yeah, I still cannot believe that after all that time I never saw the "face", now it looks really obvious:)

    Thanks mate, but these are too big for me unfortunately:)

    I do already have 2 pairs of these which are slightly different and used, but they do fit me. I also have a collection of t-shirts from 80's in the style that Connors used to wear. Well I say collection, I have 3 of them:)

    I just mentioned in another thread that the only time I met Connors was at a Senior event at the Royal Albert Hall in London in I think late 90's, in one of his last ever competitive Senior tournaments. He was very friendly and gave me his autograph. Later that day I think McEnroe beat him easily, so a good job I met him earlier in the day:)
