Do not adjust your set

Yikes - who chose this colour combination for the tennis courts in Doha which hosted the women's WTA final event of the year?

I realise that they are Sony Ericsson's (major sponsor) colours, but still! My camera's sensor doesn't do justice to the real colour of the court - it's actually more purple than the image shows. The lime green shows ok.

I'd have to wear sunglasses to play there. It's a wonder that the ball doesn't get lost against the green, as they are similar in colour.

Shame that Serena Williams and Ana Ivanovic pulled out with injury and illness, but that's the way it goes. I wonder if they get to keep their substantial appearance fees?

Qatar Tennis Federation - your dismal website needs an overhaul.

Sony Ericsson - both of your websites here and here are better - at least all the links work. Anyway, what's with the two sites promoting the same events?

Jesus! No wonder Ivanovic & Serena pulled out!

nzm said...

kaya: Ouch! Would be too close to my old corporate colours of yellow and red (together with a K!)

Mise!!!!! So good to see you here after so long! Will have to email you.

Jayne: ugly wasn't it? If it hadn't been for the lucrative prize money, I think that the girls would have mutinied.

Rosh: so good to see you here too!

I am still not quite over the fact that End of the season championship was held in Doha. I know that money talks, yadda yadda, but seriously. DOHA? Of all places? They couldn't even advertise the event properly, had to black out the photos of the girls on the posters. Ridiculous.
