This has intrigued me for sometime but has anyone noticed on the ATP World Tour site that the majority of the player photos look like mug shots? None of the top players are smiling.
It’s interesting because when you scroll through and look at some top fifty players, some smile, some do not. Gael Monfils is all smiles. Even John Isner. But Sam Querrey? Nope. Looks like a driver’s license photo.
What’s up with this? Did the ATP tell players that they needed to look dead serious so that it looks like every man is ready to go to war with the next player ala a mixed marital arts event?
In contrast, the ladies of the WTA all have their “glamour shots” going on, all smiles and makeup.
What do you think?
