Funnies: Yao Ming, the Tower of Beijing

For anyone who’s ever felt insecure about their height, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga feels your pain.  The 6’3″ Frenchman poses with former NBA star Yao Ming and opponent Ze Zhang right before their match at the China Open.

Tsonga looks like a mini-action figure standing next to Yao Ming, who is literally head and shoulders above everyone else.  Luckily, Tsonga coasted through the match and set up an exciting QF encounter with Juan Carlos Ferrero.  Yao Ming attended the match but was apparently not very impressed.

Mr. Yao, are you not entertained?! (AFP: Liu Jin)
