The darkness of the night covered the moon. The air was thick and surely a sign of the evil that was lurking around every corner...OK...let's stop.
This is not the introduction to the latest scary movie. However, it is the introduction into a quick look at some of the scariest faces of tennis players, past and present. It's amazing what happens during those passionate moments on the tennis court.
And what better way to make an introduction than to use one of the scenes used most often to conjure up scary thoughts—the darkness of the moon. I had to add a little drama.
I had a great time putting this together, and though the theme is scary, I'm pretty sure you'll get in a few chuckles along the way.
Be sure to leave your comments afterwards as feedback is always great.
Bjorn Borg has always seemed like a very calm person on and off the court.
But this seems to be a little over the top when it comes to calmness.
He seems as though he's at zero gravity and loving it.
For some reason, I keep thinking elf when I look at this photo.
Can't you see Lleyton in a little elf suit complete with the hat and shoes helping his fellow elves load Santa's sleigh.
OK. Maybe I have a little too much excitement over the fact that Christmas is right around the corner.
It just seems like Big John's eyes are growling, "Didn't I tell you?"
Though she's playing tennis, I think this is Victoria's weightlifting face.
Here, Maria seems to be a cross between the Swamp Thing's fiancee and the Bride of Frankenstein.
I tell you, Del Potro is definitely gearing up for some fighting action here.
I think this would be a great typical scene from any alien movie.
It appears Tsonga has ingested or been infected by some sort of foreign parasite, and it seems as though the incubation period just ended.
The birth of this alien life form is eminent based upon Tsonga's actions.
Ferrer is changing into something. What? Well, I'm not quite sure.
Don't tell John that you're aware, but he's really afraid of the dark.
For those who remember, when I saw this photo of Jennifer, I immediately thought of that show American Gladiators with a little Xena, Warrior Princess mixed in.
Andy looks like the typical villain in a cartoon series who has just pulled off an evil plot.
Can't you just hear the evil laugh?
Not sure what Schiavone just tasted, but apparently it was scary bad...
I definitely would not have wanted to be Martina's opponent in this match.
She seemed really focused on winning.
I am seeing a new Lord of the Rings character in Jelena here...
Jimmy had a momentary lapse as he believed he was an airplane...
Melanie seems to be treating the ball like a pesky bug.
It seems its death is imminent with that look.
Justine's evil factor is definitely reaching the extreme.
Wonder if the hair twisting has any effect on it?
Really concerned about Kaia here...
Another new Lord of the Rings character...
Raonic is going to do some serious damage to his bottom lip as hard as it appears he's biting down...
No doubt, Monica was attempting to do her best interpretation for a tryout as a witch character.
I give it four stars.
Nadia seems to be taking positive thinking to the extreme here.
Can't you hear "I think I can...I think I can"...all the while becoming more and more aggressive.
Talking about bringing out the dark side.
I saw this photo of Djokovic after tearing his shirt and immediately thought of a younger, slimmer Lou Ferrigno.
For those who may not be familiar, he played The Hulk.
OK. This is visual confirmation that Roger has another level beyond calm.
He seems just a little passionate about this particular accomplishment.
For some reason, I am thinking the X-men character, Wolverine...
Bruce Lee taught Serena this look and move...
Apparently, in the heat of the moment on the court brought out Svetlana's evil leprechaun side.
If the producer of the Leprechaun movies saw this face, she would definitely be cast as a new character.
Talk about losing too many fluids.
It appears there's going to be nothing left of Rafa.
A cross between the girl in The Exorcist and Storm from X-men.
I am going to leave this up to your imagination.
I am simply speechless as to how Taylor looks in this photo.
Definitely, the epitome of a scary face.
