… why not get a terracotta one instead? That statue on the right, ladies and gentlemen, is Roger Federer.
French sculptor Laury Dizengremel has been commissioned by the Association of Tennis Professionals to create terracotta warriors of the world’s best eight tennis players including Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Andy Murray, James Blake, and Richard Gasquet to be unveiled at the Tennis Masters Cup, the prestigious circuit ending championship that will be held in our city.
Just as well, since lots of the original soldiers are currently on holiday taking part in the largest exhibition of the terracotta army outside China at the British Museum.
