All the auctions are completed for the 2010 Art of Tennis "self-portrait" and racket auctions on e-bay......

Andy Roddick: $33,100
Roger Federer: $27,300
Rafael Nadal: $26,500
Novak Djokovic: $27,103
Andy Murray:$7301
David Ferrer: $3350
Tomas Berdych: $3001

A couple of interesting things....I'm surprised Roddick's items went for more than both Federer's and Nadal's, and it's true, the difference between one slam and no slams is huge (as of this post).

Based on some recent, brilliant, economic reasoning on this board, the results of this auction say that Andy Roddick is far and away the most popular player on the tour, with Federer and Nadal being a very close 2 and 3.

Obviously this interpretation is ironclad.

Did Brooklyn Decker buy it?

At the O2 they had the 8 racquets behind glass with the artwork.

On the butt cap they had a torn off bit of that paper you use to get straight edges when painting, with the player's name on it, so I guess the guy putting together the exhibit would know which racket went with which painting. Looks like they forgot to remove the paper.

Anyway, I was surprised that Nadal and Roddick's sticks were with cortex, not paint jobs, so not their actual rackets.

Federer's was signed on the leather grip, and I thought his charity rackets were always signed on an overgrip. The strings were gut crosses and alupower mains.

So were these actual player's rackets, or just some they got out of a shop and strung up?
