My Hotel is Bigger Than Yours

Posted by gauloises1 on February 22, 2010

Some of the boys doing promotional shots in front of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai:

Novak pwns you, Dubai.

Look at him, having his photo taken like a real top player. Bless.

Did Andy oversleep for this shoot, or what?

Seriously, I swear to god, he is wearing his pyjamas.

Either that or he’s having a prolonged reaction to Melbourne and has been in bed with the curtains closed, eating ice-cream out of the tub, with ‘Mad World’ on repeat for the last month or whatever.

BOUNCE BACK, ANDY. WE NEED YOU.

    Funny post. 😀 Like the good boy he is, Andy is wearing his adidas jammies.

    Did you see the picture on the homepage of the ATP site yesterday? Looks like Muzz and Nole were chatting, and Marin’s awkwardly tried to sidle up to the cool kids and pretend he’s in conversation.

    Why did the cameraman shoot Marin while standing on a box, then shoot Andy while kneeling before him? And only use nice fill flash for Nole? Sheesh.

    But you’re right. Andy is def in his pyjadidas.

      It isn’t just the fact that he turned up wearing something totally nondescript and a bit crap – it’s the fact that it’s all crumpled and generally looks like there’s probably an egg-stain on it somewhere.

    Marin, you have a nice smile. Show it once in a while.

    LOL @ Nole’s face in the last pic. SUN IN THE EYES.

    Or maybe he’s irked that he’s in the background while Marin and MAndy get the spotlight. Makes me cringe too Djoko. Makes me cringe too.

      Also, meanwhile in Dubai, I’m thinking there really is something to your Pyjamas theory. It’s taken Murray 40 MINUTES to build a 3-0 lead over Igor Kunitsyn.
