Indy Crisis Center, 7.26 07/26/2007 - 11:00 AM

Some of you may have noticed, perusing this website, that it is frequented by quite a large contingent of sexist, shallow, cliquish, hormonally-driven and lustful tennis freaks to whom, it often seems, Hottness is all. And the men who read this blog aren' always all that high-minded, either. . . But let's leave them out of it for now.Frankie

Ladies, here's your chance to lay all your cards on the table. I am asking each of you to step up and submit your Hott 5, in order of Hottness (hottest guy at No. 1). Feel free to add a comment to each of your choices, but keep it brief. Oh, and you men, you can talk Federer's slice backhand or something. . .

We'll do this in honor of Frankie, aka Tire Boy, who took out Juan Del Potro yesterday in Indianapolis.  I am due back from Newfoundland Sunday night, so have a great weekend.

My hunch is Nadal would be on top on most of the list...

Pete, may be you should give a chance to us with WTA sometime!

Posted by Hah 07/26/2007 at 11:21 AM

Obviously there's no need to make a post like this for guys who read this blog because it seems the only reason guys follow the sport is to watch what outfit Sharapova will wear to the next GS.

Posted by 70's tennis fan 07/26/2007 at 11:22 AM

Wow! Can an old (well 40's) lady go first?

1. Marat Safin. Cheek bones, soulful brown eyes, curly brown hair, tall and athletic and a bit moody to don't need to bring your racket Marat!

2.Carlos Moya. Similar to the above but a bit more mediteranean

3.Fernando Gonzalez. Oh for a chance to gaze into those deep brown eyes! Lovely smile too and great legs.

4.Dimitry Tursunov. Hum, I sense a deviation from the tall dark type here. Tall and blonde but with a great sense of humour, intelligence and not a bad body either

5. Can I go for a golden oldy here? I bumped into my 1970's heart-throb, Vilas, at Wimbledon. He was uterly charming and still handsome enough to make this heart beat a little faster!!

Posted by cc 07/26/2007 at 11:29 AM

1. Richard Gasquet - I used to have the biggest crush on him,and he's so soft spoken it's impossible not to love him.

2.Novak Djokovic - the shirt off after the Hewitt match at Wimby did it for me.

3. Dimitry Tursunov - guys who make me rofl are automatically hot

4. Marat Safin - enough said.

5. Feliciano Lopez - those eyes!

Posted by Beckham 07/26/2007 at 11:31 AM

err I was at the tournament yesterday and will be at the tournmanet tonight...if I can find the time I'll do a write up...but I'm not optimistic...:)

Posted by steveintheknow 07/26/2007 at 11:31 AM

I'll play....(though limiting to the top 100)

1) Lopez

2) Safin

3) Nadal

4) Federer (particularly a couple of years ago, before the gut, when he was even hotter then Nadal IMO)

5) Haas

Oh, and I am not gay BTW.

Posted by ptenisnet 07/26/2007 at 11:35 AM

Why can't I talk about Hott Chicks on the WTA?

Posted by Or 07/26/2007 at 11:40 AM


First of all, I have to say that Marat does nothing for me.

1) Roger - He's not the prettiest, or the hunkiest, but he totally does it for me.

2) Gonzo.

3) Lopez.


5) Gasquet.

Posted by RedClaw 07/26/2007 at 11:41 AM

This thread should make for some great reading - And my, Pete does have a whicked tongue, doesn't he? :)

Have fun, everyone. As a member of the male half of our species, I'll be largely sitting this one out. ;)

Bodo you have excellent taste in men. Someone needs to Kournikova Frankie so very badly.

3) MrsSanta wearing Crocs while driving a Camaro

4) MrsSanta in a Ninja Turtle suit and matching Crocs driving a Camaro

5) Frank Dancevic

Posted by PSparkle 07/26/2007 at 11:49 AM


Dimitry Tursunov ain't bad to look at.

Posted by Alista 07/26/2007 at 11:58 AM

Roger Federer - the hot legs, the hairiness and the total package
Pete Sampras - the hairiness and some other indeterminate factors
Marat Safin - soulfulness and playfulness
Mikhail Youzhny - I like that military look
Lleyton Hewitt - the intenseness of his eyes

Posted by nictennis 07/26/2007 at 11:58 AM

1. Roddick
2. Blake
3. the Bryan Brothers
4. Djokovic
5. Safin

OK - I will add my impressions
1 Nadal
2 Safin-ok I know i said I was over him - but - i lied
3 Moya
4 Lopez
5 tie - Haas , Verdasco

Posted by abbey 07/26/2007 at 12:03 PM

ooh, this is fun. i was just going to tell rosangel after her pictures of verdasco that he has leaped to no. 2 on my hott hott list, but then forgot about it. well, actually, make that no. 1 as nadal is on the hott hott hott list.

hott hott hott

1. verdasco

Posted by JillfromNY 07/26/2007 at 12:04 PM

Marat Safin - Naturally gorgeous - hot without trying to be and that's the best kind of hot

Feliciano Lopez - The Eyes are Killer!

Mike Bryan - I have always been able to distinguish him from his brother. He has symmetrical features and his brother's features aren't. Mike is a handsome guy who cleans up well.

Donald Young - I have seen some pix recently that show he is growing into a really cute guy.

Tommy Haas - Yum!

Posted by patrick 07/26/2007 at 12:06 PM

Red Claw,
I am just like you. I have to sit this thread out unless someone like Ptenisnet start the list for the WTA. Then, I will chime in.

Posted by Libby 07/26/2007 at 12:08 PM


1) Nadal (yes, everything here pretty much all works)
2) Roddick (I . . . can't explain this one)
3) Federer (nice hair, overall appealing demeanor)
4) Ferrero (I can't help it, it's something about the cheekbones)
5) Blake (the eyes! the smile! gah!)

Honorable mentions: Moya, Baghdatis, Gasquet.

Men's singles is really such a rewarding spectator sport.

Hi Guys,
I'm at stop #3 on our family reunion cruise, and Pete was absolutely right about how wonderful Belize and its people are. The Internet access charges at this place where I am now are much better than the outrageous charges on board ship -- but not enough for me to say anything more than a short hello to all of you. :) Miss you all, and I'll have fun catching up with everything when I return home on Sunday.

Posted by misael 07/26/2007 at 12:12 PM

How about us gay guys,tennis has loads and loads of gay fans.#1 Marat Safin #2 Patrick Rafter #3 James Blake ( he's such a gentleman) #4 Stefan Edberg (those legs) # 5 Juan Carlos Ferrero (he looks like Jesus) what a fun game.

Posted by zola 07/26/2007 at 12:13 PM

I love this Indy crisis center. Has nothing to do with Indy!

Posted by Sally 07/26/2007 at 12:14 PM

Kristin - I question your taste - Verdasco is a butterface


Posted by Panchito 07/26/2007 at 12:15 PM

I'm a straight guy but if someone told me I would wake up looking like a tennis pro i want these guys:

Marat Safin- dude reminds me of Superman, girls love him but more importantly even men idolize him
Bjorn Borg-Looks very very cool and mysterious, has a james dean quality, teenage girls love him, incredible shoulders and frame
Patrick Rafter-with the ponytail he looks like a samurai with a tennis racquet
Guillermo Vilas-a good looking guy and built like a tank, cool hair
James Blake-good looking guy and he's got that black dude mystique that girls like

I do not wanna look like
Radek Stepanek ( just plain f*gly )
Michael Chang ( too typical asian male )
McEnroe circa 1980 ( too pastey white )
Richard Williams
Rochus bros ( they look fine but they're so short )

Posted by steveintheknow 07/26/2007 at 12:18 PM

Posted by abbey 07/26/2007 at 12:18 PM

ruth! great to hear from. continue having fun.

Posted by nnn 07/26/2007 at 12:18 PM

Nadal - "OMG, when he smiles"

Haas - he would've been more successful as a model, imo.

Safin -

Lopez - Aw, so cute face & sexy eyes

Tursonov - he is definitely a head turner

Posted by syd 07/26/2007 at 12:24 PM

Federer (with long hair, and/or pony)
Federer (with short hair)
Rafter (with pony & war paint)

Posted by Veruca Salt (Deluxe Edition) 07/26/2007 at 12:36 PM

Only 5? *sigh* Oh well..

on behalf of your wife????

Means you don't find Rafter "hot"? Lol!

C'mon guys. Thers is nothing wrong with admitting someone is good looking. Doesn't mean you are secretly in love with them!

I don't think TW women are going to hold back when time comes for WTA nominations!

Posted by rudi 07/26/2007 at 12:39 PM

Also ran: Lopez, Gonzalez, Haas, Nadal

Wait. The woman get to say who they think is the hottest? I FLOVE IT HERE!!!
1) Rafa(duh!)
2) Verdasco(What can I say? I flove guys with dark/looks)
3) Novak( I flove his personality. And his abs help a little bit too.)
4) Bryan Bros.(okay, I know they're two people, but when do you see one without the other?)
5) This one is hard. Hmmmm... Ancic.(I was just thinking about putting Gasquet, but then I remembered Ancic! I flove his whole innocent look.)

Posted by DMS 07/26/2007 at 12:44 PM

zola, i thought men wore chapstick or carmex? what is this lip balm you speak of?

Posted by zola 07/26/2007 at 12:46 PM

I don't know, ask RF cosmetikz! or "Wilandercare"! I think Tim is the official representative on TW!

Oh, and here are my honorable mentions:
Baghdadtis( Only because I love his new haircut)
Simon(I don't know why. I just like him)

Panchito - Your "I don't want to look like" list was hilarious! But, to me, Johnny Mac still looks beat up.

Posted by robbyfan 07/26/2007 at 12:58 PM

I'm surprised by those that have the Bryan brothers on their list.
I can't get past remembering how cheap they sounded at Wimby last year. And don't get me started on the FIL! ugh.

Posted by Sherlock 07/26/2007 at 12:59 PM

Under the same premise as Panchito:

1. Rafter - no ponytail, thank you. Handsome as hell, body I would love to have myself, quiet, unassuming, and from all accounts, a super nice guy. What's not to like? Oh, and a most beautiful serve and volley game as well.

2. A golden Swedish oldie, Enqvist. Stud of studs, except for Patrick.

3. JCF.

4. Another golden Swedish oldie, Edberg.

That's it. Haas, Blake, Robredo, Clement, Mathieu, Roddick, Safin, Federer, Nadal, yeah, all nice looking guys, but pffft, 95% of the guys on tour are nice looking guys. :)

Posted by CL 07/26/2007 at 01:07 PM

Mrs. S - You've dumped Diego for a pair of Crocs & a Camaro? Tsk. It would take at least some Ugs and a Carmello for me to drop Mr. Hartfelder.


TMF wearing Edberg style shorts and Edberg wearing....oh never mind.

Posted by Sherlock 07/26/2007 at 01:08 PM

Zola, love your 4 and 5. LOL. Hilarious. :)

Posted by Sherlock 07/26/2007 at 01:11 PM

"TMF wearing Edberg style shorts and Edberg wearing....oh never mind."

CL, was that number 5 or number 1? :)

Where is Maplesugar? I want to see her list. And favored position with each one. :)

Posted by MrsSanta 07/26/2007 at 01:12 PM

Ryan the exciting Querrey Karlovic duel appears to be going on uninterrupted. Rain is scared of aces perhaps.

CL these are not just any Crocs or any Camaro. They are special.

Posted by zola 07/26/2007 at 01:14 PM

you mean Tim?
he told me no one buys anything. That's why he is trying to sell them here! lol!

Posted by CL 07/26/2007 at 01:24 PM

Sherlock - I'm always happy to be flexible about such things...either is ok by me. :-)

Mrs. Santa - They'd BETTER be...poor Diego is crushed...or in this case, crocked.

Hotness aside though, what the heck IS with Gonzo, Luby,Youz, JCF, Koyla,now Djoko? Do thye only have x number of good/great matches in them over the course of a year...or a career... and once they have played that x number, that's it? (Koyla is a little different becuae he plays so much, but...) And is that the REAL difference between the rest of the field and TMF and Rafa? They have unlimited winning matches in them?

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 01:29 PM

This thread is an absolute gem. Props to you, Pete, and to all of the posters. Perfect timing for me, as I just got back from a girls' weekend in Vegas and my best friends and I found ourselves (embarassingly) following the ultimate hotty around the Mandalay Bay pool, gawking (the words "look at that butt" were used several times and we were given a laughing shake of the head by a hotel employee. Seriously ladies, this guy put Nadal's body to shame. Good times!

So, since I have the boycrazy thing going at the moment and Pete has given us our moment:

1. Patrick Rafter. Ridiculously gorgeous.
2. Andre Agassi. Not as traditionally hot as the others, but my original teen crush so he has to go here.
3. Rafa. Are you kidding me with those arms and butt??
4. Carlos Moya
5. Waiting for the next great thing!

I have to say I am just not really into the extreme pretty-boy look, in which category I would place Gambill, Lopez, and a few others. That just does not work for me. I also do not like preening - I feel like Lopez and Gambill know they are so pretty and kind of act like it. And I do not like Haas' on-court personality at all, so that turns me off to him.

Posted by ET (not deV) 07/26/2007 at 01:32 PM

This is such fun!!!

1. Safin
2. Federer
3. Tsonga
4. Gasquet
5. Tursunov

Posted by D-Wiz 07/26/2007 at 01:36 PM

Ranking HOTTNESS is so terribly conflicting for me. Like, there's 'seeing' hottness and 'feeling' hottness, IMO, and they don't make for the same rankings! (guess it's like the WTA rankings vs. earnings) 2 lists for me.

5. Diego Hartfield
4. James Blake
3. Tommy Robredo
2. Tommy Haas
1. Feliciano Lopez

5. James Blake
4. Fernando Verdasco
3. Dmitry Tursunov
2. Carlos Moya
1. Marat Safin

Posted by MrsSanta 07/26/2007 at 01:40 PM

CL you are also overlooking the fact that I'm much prettier than Mr. Hartfield.

Ivan Ljubicic sold his soul for the FO 2006 draw and has been paying for it ever since. Misha is just clueless.

What happened to Iveta Benesova and her tiny skirts?

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 01:42 PM

I am surprised that Blake is making so many lists. Nice smile, but the chicken legs are a deal breaker for me.

Posted by Grant 07/26/2007 at 01:42 PM

I was trying to come up with a list of the worst looking players as a joke, but I don't know of any truely hideous male tennis players. Not on the level of Don Mossi or even Sam Cassell, anyway.

Posted by robbyfan 07/26/2007 at 01:45 PM

we could do a best dressed/worst dressed list.

Posted by 07/26/2007 at 01:45 PM

Posted by CL 07/26/2007 at 01:45 PM

Grant - You're just not trying.

Mrs. S - point taken, but if we are going down the road, in a Camaro, of hotness of self.... hmmm... there is something in there about potholes, but I can't quite extricate it. More coffee.

Posted by zola 07/26/2007 at 01:49 PM

I 'm OK with just the hot list! Let's leave the not-hots alone!

Posted by Grant 07/26/2007 at 01:50 PM

"Grant - You're just not trying."

There's not even Randy Johnson level ugly, let alone Otis Nixon level ugly.

Ms.Santa - one question - How does Iveta keep them from falling off? Never could figure that one out. Seems like jumping up and down would be very dangerous.

This from someone with AA on her list? :-)

Posted by Alista 07/26/2007 at 01:55 PM

Who's going to tabulate the statistics at the end of this thread? I love unscientific polls:-)

Posted by MrsSanta 07/26/2007 at 01:56 PM

Grant you are using skewed benchmarks. No one can win a fugliness competition against baseball players.

TT no idea. Perhaps they came with an adhesive lining of some kind.

1. Serena Williams

Posted by patrick 07/26/2007 at 01:56 PM

Just can't do it. All I can do on this thread is read and wait for the WTA list.

Posted by Rani 07/26/2007 at 01:57 PM

1. Safin
2. Federer (not H-O-T-T, but very handsome, the kind of boy you can bring home)
3. Haas
4. Djokovic and 5. Gasquet are too young for me, but they are up there.

If we are naming old favorites, then Rafter tops this list, hands down.

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 01:57 PM

Sam - point taken! But I qualified my AA pick. And I still think he is hotter than Blake.

I was tempted to put Goran Ivanisivic as my 5th pick. Is that weird?

Posted by Sherlock 07/26/2007 at 01:58 PM

Anonymous, that Hartfield picture scares me. Was that supposed to go on the WTA site, and someone messed up? :)

"There's not even Randy Johnson level ugly, let alone Otis Nixon level ugly."

LOL, Grant. But hey, give Otis a break. He was still playing at seventy eight years old.

Nice lists, D-Wiz. And James makes both of them. Wow.

Posted by Tokyo Tom (tt) 07/26/2007 at 01:58 PM

sorry - I just assumed you also wore them on the court as well -

Posted by patrick 07/26/2007 at 02:00 PM

Otis is not that old isn't he. But, he sure could steal a base.

Posted by zola 07/26/2007 at 02:00 PM


Just can't do it. All I can do on this thread is read and wait for the WTA list.**

come on Patrick. You want to tell me that to you all the male players look the same? or you want the TW women to remain silent when it is WTA time?

give some names. Promise it doesn't mean anything!!!lol!

Posted by MrsSanta 07/26/2007 at 02:02 PM

TT you assumed I'm a woman who plays tennis in a miniscule skirt based on my love of Camaros?

Posted by Tokyo Tom (tt) 07/26/2007 at 02:03 PM

it is as good a reason as any other.

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 02:04 PM

Jenn: I know, but I had to tease ya anyway! But I think Blake is far better looking than AA.

Not weird about Goran.

Grant: LOL. Who is Mossi? I know the other 3.

Posted by patrick 07/26/2007 at 02:06 PM

I want the TW women give their opinions on the WTA when the time come. But, I will be consistent on my view on the ATP by reading this thread only.

Posted by Grant 07/26/2007 at 02:06 PM

"Grant you are using skewed benchmarks. No one can win a fugliness competition against baseball players."


Oh, and don't make me bring football into this. Even the ugly baseball players vaguely resemble human beings.

"But hey, give Otis a break. He was still playing at seventy eight years old."

He was batting leadoff for the Kansas City Monarchs at age 78.

Posted by Metro 07/26/2007 at 02:07 PM

Practice courts and queues tend to be a fertile ground for studying perceived hottness factor of certain players. I did two straw polls this year and asked some female fans on the sidelines about players they fancy (note: tennis skills not applicable). This is non scientific and only an empirical exercise from two tournaments attended with a small universe N.

Safin, Nadal, Tsonga (seen as very cute by teenagers), Haas and maybe Tursunov (for women with a GSOH). Given the demographics of this website, if I were a gambling person I would put my money on Nadal.

Players with high profile partners or older age take a hit in the hottness competition. Thereby Federer or Bjoerkman ranked slightly lower.

Posted by Grant 07/26/2007 at 02:08 PM

"Grant: LOL. Who is Mossi? I know the other 3."

He was a pitcher in the 50s and 60s. He was described by a baseball historian as such:

"Don Mossi was the complete five-tool ugly player. He could run ugly, hit ugly, throw ugly, field ugly and ugly for power. He was ugly to all fields. He could ugly behind the runner as well as anybody, and you talk about pressure ... man, you never saw a player who was uglier in the clutch."

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 02:08 PM

OK, with Sam's official endorsement (ha!) my revised list is:

1. Rafter
2. AA
3. Rafa
4. Moya
5. Ivanisivic

and I thought Pink's list was hilarious. ("N..A..D..A..L." 1-5).

Where is the love for Bjorn Borg on this thread? After Wimbledon a few of us joked about him having "work" done and people rushed to his defense as the ultimate tennis hottie.

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 02:10 PM

"Oh, and don't make me bring football into this."

Yeah, but at least they can hide behind their facemasks. Well, more or less.

Posted by Isabel 07/26/2007 at 02:10 PM

1. Rafa (yummy, cute, HOTTT!)
2. Safin

4. Moya
5. Enqvist

Top 5? I've seen Rafa in the flesh 13 times now in the past two months. My lenses have been virtually incapable of focusing on anyone else while in my hands, unless he was not on court. How I managed to take two pictures of Carlos Moya (he'd be number two on my Hott list) I'll never know. Though I suspect Rafa was in one of them (shaking hands at the net). And I only took those pics of Feliiano Lopez because Rafa was partly hidden by the net at the time:)

I never did get to see Fancy Dancy in the flesh.

Marat Safin, Mario Ancic and Tommy Haas are all somewhere on my list.

Thinking of non-current players, the last time I mentioned that the 1983 Wimbledon finalist Chris Lewis was Hott, he delurked. I'd surely have to include Bjorn Borg and Stefan Edberg on my list. Oh, and John Lloyd was my first tennis love.

1) Younes El Aynaoui (hot, hot, hot)
2) Bjorkman (hot in a cuddly sort of way)
3) Safin (moronic, but hot)
4) Chela (lanky and hot)
5) O. Rochus (compact is not always a "dis")

First love for Chela coming from L. Rubin!

Oh, come on, Grant. Tony Siragusa defines hottness. Of course, he also defines loud, obnoxious, clueless sideline reporting.

"He was batting leadoff for the Kansas City Monarchs at age 78."

LOL! I think Jackie used to call him his mentor. :)

Patrick, seriously, yes, Otis was quite a player. Made those Atlanta teams go for a few years there.
