We can barely see this year's champion.
That pic of Sampras and Monfils looks like an ad for some kind of buddy movie, and someone had some fun with the highlighter markers in that AO group photo.
i want federer's shirt!
Great pics of Venus and Chrissie. Nice to see some cool ladies.
^^Thanks CCNM. Chris Evert was my favorite player. I've never really rooted for a female player the way I did for her. As a junior, she was amazing to watch. She was tough as nails too, underneath that veneer of the "Ice Maiden", who gets my vote for being the coolest female player ever. Graf is up there too in my book. Of course Martina is an all time great too, but I was always rooting for Evert. Evert should have gone to graphite earlier in my opinion, but sorry for the long post here.
^That's an extremely nice picture at Roland Garros. It's quite dramatic. I love the colors especially.
Yannick. No one slam wonder ever looked so cool.
This is also a cool picture but I can't get it embedded. Picture number 20 that is.
His best look EVER. And right before that damn haircut.
I'm in awe...
That picture is so Nadal, a warrior at his best.
ha that picture of fed is so photoshopped.
Comfy chair! :lol:
wonder how much it costs lol
Hey borg-number-one, you're thirty years too late to the party buddy! You should camp out in the former pro player section, not here.
That is so rude. Borg_Number_One has posted tons of pictures of modern pros. I find his picture collection of former pros to be very intriguing as well. Seriously, the guy posted a picture of Bjorn Borg with Muhammad Ali.....that is as cool as a picture gets.
Also, the OP did not specify that all pictures need to be of modern pros.
Nope it isn't. However, I am sure you could tell from the pixels.
The subject of the thread is "coolest pictures of pros" and you can't get any cooler than Borg. If you had to stick to current pros only, the thread would be quite limited. :lol:
But as Sid_Vicious stated, BN1 has posted great pictures from all eras.
Nikdom, newsflash, Tennis began more than five years ago. I swear it did. To a large extent Mr. Borg started this whole "party". I've been watching the Game closely every year since the 70's, so I actually realize that this "party" didn't start in just this century. If you only focus on the current players of today Nikdom, sorry but you're missing out on so much in terms of perspective. Thanks SV and SusanDK, I do appreciate tennis in every era, not just the current one. Yet, you can tell how much I'm a fan of Bjorn Borg.
Can't seem to upload this, but this is a sweet picture...
Who's the curly-haired guy? I remember Yannick's dreadlocks (and being quite surprised that there were "black" people in France-I was about 6-8 years old). I'm glad Rafa got rid of those tank tops. He looks like a mature, serious player now.
CCNM, that's Jose Luis Clerc from Argentina. He was a great clay courter, who beat McEnroe at the French Open for example. He was a top ten player in the Borg era. By about 1980, he was as good as the older Vilas on red clay. Check him out here when he lost the 1981 French Open SF to Lendl. Borg beat Lendl in that final.
Gottfried, Ramírez and Vilas
Jose Clerc-thanks for the info and the clip borg #1. Can't believe Ivan lendl was that young.
somebody gots to have a hi res wallpaper of this one.
My cousin hit with Monika Weijnert
Maybe I can too one day except I only began playing this month
Loving that scenery with Federer!
Wow Federer's chin is scary ugly :shock:
