PHOTO OP: Super Mario looks super excited to be hitting balls again

Mario Ancic was spotted cracking an open stance forehand while defeating Olivier Rochus 7-6 (6), 6-2 in Stockholm today.

Okay people - when I saw this photo I had to do a triple take on the image. I was thinking, "Super Mario looks REALLY REALLY excited to be back after getting sick again!"

And just so you know, Mario, we are too...oy...

  1. So ridiculous! It's like one of those optical illusion posters everyone was crazy about in the 90s. It just jumps out at you!

    But really, those yellow shorts are causing all kinds of confusion with the yellow tennis balls :)

  2. OOH.


    It's like a punchline, with a really really good punch.

    I swear I make sense in my head.

  3. Gives a whole new meaning to "Super Mario".

    That may be the funniest photo I've seen in my lifetime. Definitely the funniest of this century.

  4. OMG! This is hilarious

  5. hahaha hilarious!!!! Talk about optical illusions huh?!?!

  6. Maybe it's a very early practicing session and Mario still has morning wood.

  7. OMIGOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hahaha.. never ever wear yellow shorts!

  8. -cough-
    Oh, Mario!
    I don't know how he does it, but he still looks cute and that is possibly the most ridiculous photo I've seen in a while!

  9. Sad to say that the excitement's short-lived...he withdrew from stockholm due to acute bronchitis with fever.

    anything too much and super is not good tsk tsk tsk

  10. anon: why, oh why, is his health so fragile? this is terrible news. he's got to get to the bottom of his health issues - something is not right.
