Title of City Weekend articleBattle of the Terracottas: the TMC brings warriors to Shanghai

"The idea of tying an iconic symbol of China in with the Tennis Master's Cup in Shanghai is a brilliant concept" says French sculptor Laury Dizengremel whose hands gave shape to the eight (tennis) Terracotta Warriors.....

"It was really interesting for me to work out how to balance the heads with the bodies. Obviously the terracotta Warriors are all very similar to each other - here there's more variety, each warrior has to look like a tennis player"

While her twenty-first century warriors have undoubtedly been the talk of the art and tennis world, the "Chosen Eight" are the most enthusiastic about the pieces. [....] Serbia's Novak Djokovic ranked third in the world says seeing himself  "as a Terracotta" tops all other experiences that await in Shanghai.
