Honestly, I could not get through this entire press release without laughing hysterically in my office because (1) it sounds lame and (2) I was totally imagining how I would mix one. From the WTA website:
Tour Introduces "Challenge Your Hero" Video Platform
ST. PETERSBURG, FL, USA - Fans who have always dreamed of hitting the court to face off against the top women's tennis players in the world now have a chance to make it happen - virtually. On Monday, September 15, the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour very proudly announced the launch of ChallengeYourHero.com, a website designed for fans to mix videos of themselves matching up to the forehands, backhands, volleys and serves of some of the greatest women's tennis players in the world.

ChallengeYourHero.com invites fans to 'play a point' versus a pro, putting their skills to the test against the likes of Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic and Dinara Safina. Users can upload personal on-court action or other clips and, using an innovative video mixer, create cut-scene videos that combine their own tennis shots with those of their heroes. Videos can then easily be shared and each clip is captured on the site's public gallery. Visitors can also edit existing videos. Creators of the best videos, as determined by the Tour, will be eligible for a chance to see the superheroes of the Tour on display at the year-end Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha. Second prizes include the latest Sony Ericsson mobile phones, compliments of global title sponsor Sony Ericsson.
So yeah, I am TOTALLY going to do this. I have a video camera, a racquet, some open courts, and zero tennis skill.
You're going DOWN, Jankovic.
