Busted Racquet - Tennis

The eight finalists at the unfortunately acronymed ATP World Tour Finals (WTF) put on their Sunday bests on Thursday evening to take some promotional photographs around London. Their first stop, 10 Downing Street, where the men posed for a group shot while waiting for Prime Minister David Cameron to answer the door:

Kudos to Ferrer for opting to go with the gray suit. He's like the kid on class picture day who cut his hair into a mohawk and dressed in a Bart Simpson "Cowabunga, Dude" T-shirt.

The entire picture is sort of strange given that none of the players are looking at the camera. Were they all looking at Andy Murray's mom who was also snapping pictures on her Funsaver?

Finally, the tennis players were allowed inside:

Figures that the American and Brit would get next to the prime minister for the shot. Everyone looks pretty dapper, but I'm wondering if Harrods had some sort of sale on blue ties. Rafa, Murray and Cameron all seem to bearing the same one.

Of all eight players, guess who's worst at tying a tie?

It's not happy hour, brah.

Also, Robin Soderling looks like he's up to no good, like he just got finished drawing a mustache on a painting of Margaret Thatcher.

There are plenty more pictures chronicling the evening, which we'll get to in the coming days.
