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.

Thanks, Ronan, for that link! Guga has now entered my computer photo album.

I'll tell you what I first noticed about the beauty of Federer: his wrists. Whew. The way he bounces the ball before a serve? Hot hot hot. The rest of him is just fine, too. :)

Posted by Philip 07/26/2007 at 04:57 PM

Being from Canada, just wanted to give a shout of surprise that a Canadian may finally be making a name for himself in the singles. Hopefully Peter Polansky and Philip Bester will be joining him on the main tour soon, the last one defecting to Great Britain before reaching the finals of the US open (Greg Rusedski). How did Frank Dancevic get the name Tire boy anyway?

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 04:58 PM

Maplesugar: I knew we could count on you for a rototiller reference. But the donuts remark was even better!

FoT: So are you gonna combine Blake's face w/ Nadal's body? :-)

Posted by Veruca Salt (Deluxe Edition) 07/26/2007 at 04:58 PM

Did someone say football? Tony Gonzalez of the Chiefs makes up for every pork bellied, overly hairy offensive (and I mean offensive) back in the NFL. I met him once in a club in Kansas City. Talk about ga-ga! And his arms felt like oak trees. *sigh*

Ty Law
Yancey Thigpen
Ray Lewis
Tom Brady
Drew Bledsoe
Ray Buchanan
would not be kicked out for leaving crackers in the bed either...

*why do i suddenly feel like a trollop?*

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 05:00 PM

Maplesugar: I take that back - the "positions" line was the best. :-)

Posted by Dave 07/26/2007 at 05:01 PM

Federer looks like Quentin Tarantino...

Posted by mmmm8 07/26/2007 at 05:05 PM

Can we make the least attractive list? If Andy Roddick was the last man on earth, I'd probably turn gay or asexual.

Anyway... this is tough. "hot" is a combination of looks and sex appeal..

1) Tommy Haas
2) Mario Ancic
3) Carlos Moya, about 5 years ago
4) Dmitry Tursunov (here's the sex appeal over looks. But the abs are nice)
5) Alexander Waske

Technically, Marat Safin would have been my number 1. But he and I have been through so much in his career, I can't even look at him that way anymore. And I think Goran's too old for me.

Posted by Tim 07/26/2007 at 05:06 PM

Beth- I love Roger because he's the most stylish, beautiful striker of the ball ive ever seen, with the most liekable personality and charm, and he wins too! lol ...

I think that's where i differ most from the lusty rafa kads (hehe), i really dont think roger is 'hot' and Im not a fan because of his physical apperance ... its what he does with that tennis ball that has me hooked!

Posted by Tari 07/26/2007 at 05:07 PM

How about baseball players? Nice list btw, Veruca!

One of my new faves is Curtis Granderson. What a stud. And seems like such a nice guy, too.

Maggs is tops, though.

Posted by MrsSanta 07/26/2007 at 05:08 PM

Tari and MissTari are two separate people?

What's happening to Shahar? She just lost to someone I've never heard of.

Posted by 70's tennis fan 07/26/2007 at 05:09 PM

Rafa is not for me..i just don't get it. Sweet kid I'm sure but he looks like he is struggling with an exam that he hasn't revised for. A bit simian too.
Saw Fed very close up at Wimbledon (practising)He's much taller in 'real life' and less chubby too. Obviously very intelligent and basically 'nice'(I hate that word)but too boy-next-door to be hott.
Andy and Jamie get a thumbs down from the teenager in this (UK)house "too geeky mum"
My son saw Djoker and Monfils at Wimbledon and reckons that girls should find them hott, but he reckons that Safin is "basically old mum"!

Posted by Celia 07/26/2007 at 05:11 PM

zola-Andy does too look like an osrrich! If I knew how to post links, I'd post a picture of him and an ostrich and you would see that he does!

Posted by Tim 07/26/2007 at 05:12 PM

Tari stick to the confines of the tennis court, if we get started on other sports, we'll be here all night!

tennis hotties are kinda few and far between in the 'hot' category worldwide, lets face it ...

and since were going here today, wanna know why rafa doesnt make the list for me? he has no pecs at all, he needs some implants! and he DOES have funny knees, darnit! lol

*kidding kidding ducks from thrown shoes and assorted metal objects from RKNAS.. *

Posted by MissTari 07/26/2007 at 05:13 PM

yep! I had to take the name MissTari since Tari took our name here first! Though I do go by MissTari with some friends from way back...

it's quite the coincidence though. it was very strange to start reading comments from someone with my own name!

Posted by Misael 07/26/2007 at 05:13 PM

I can't remember his name but he lost to agassi at the Austalian Open, he was blond, and had the sexiest legs. HELP who is this.

Posted by Tari 07/26/2007 at 05:15 PM

Rainer Schuettler (sp?)? Is that it, Misael. He did have nice legs.

Posted by Grant 07/26/2007 at 05:16 PM

"*why do i suddenly feel like a trollop?*"

Don't worry, this thread is TE (trollopery encouraged).

Posted by zola 07/26/2007 at 05:17 PM

*Federer looks like Quentin Tarantino...*
second that!

Posted by Codge 07/26/2007 at 05:18 PM

Oh this is an easy one...


Posted by Tim 07/26/2007 at 05:20 PM

ok everyone wil KILL me for this but if Im being honest ...


*hangs head in shame*

Posted by Tari 07/26/2007 at 05:20 PM

I think he's pretty cute, Tim.

Posted by MissTari 07/26/2007 at 05:21 PM

I would've said Kiefer, since to me he looks like Treat Williams, but I haven't found him attractive since the racket-throwing incident against Grosjean in Australia. I know, I should get over it, but what can I say? I hold a grudge. ;)

Posted by Celia 07/26/2007 at 05:21 PM

*hits Tim with Head over-size racket*

Posted by Celia 07/26/2007 at 05:23 PM

That was for your 5:12 comment Tim!

Posted by Tari 07/26/2007 at 05:23 PM

MissTari, I thought that was interesting you put Sebastien on your list. He is a cute guy. No wonder Kiefer is off the list for you!

Posted by AmyLu 07/26/2007 at 05:33 PM

Hopefully not too late for the party...

1. Any guesses on who's my number one? ;-)
2. Moya
3. Rafter
4. Safin
5. Gonzo

Posted by MissTari 07/26/2007 at 05:33 PM

yes, I'm very loyal to Sebastien! ever since I saw his first press interview at Wimbledon, whew. he had me at hello.

good night, all. I wish I had a computer at home to keep up with everything, but I'll check in tomorrow!

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 05:35 PM

Tim -ok - you like Fed's game - I just figured that you liked him as well - no problem

Veruca - you don't seem like trollop to me - I love those big arms - those are the best
And I totally agree about Gonzalez!

Maplesugar and FoT - I think the reasons you find Fed attractive are exactly the reasons I don't . Somebody said he is what every mom wants her daughter to bring home. I always hated the boys my mother liked - they were immediately put on the reject pile. The minute she approved - I was out of there.

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 05:40 PM

Beth: You're in good company - I also thought that Tim liked Fed for more than his tennis.

Posted by Jean-Paul Beaubier 07/26/2007 at 05:41 PM

Current Players:
1) Tommy Haas
2) Richard Gasquet
3) Robby Ginepri
4) Tommy Robredo
5) Janko Tipsarevic

Off The Tour:
1) Patrick Rafter
2) Stefan Edberg
3) Adrian Voinea
4) Jan-Michael Gambill
5) Mark Philippoussis

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 05:42 PM

Tim: Beware of Celia - she hit with her racquet a few days ago for some smart-aleck remark. Imagine that. :-)

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 05:43 PM

Sam - always happy to be in such good company!:)
And Amylu - no I don't have any trouble guessing your number 1 choice:)

Posted by patrick 07/26/2007 at 05:45 PM

Mrs Santa,
I was wondering the same thing on Peer. It seems like her results have been on a downward trend since Miami (maybe since AO iw go back any further).

Posted by nadiafan 07/26/2007 at 05:45 PM

So true Beth, Federer is boy your mom, aunt ,grandma want you to date but you No

Posted by omar 07/26/2007 at 05:47 PM

If Fed walked into a restaurant and you weren't a tennis fan, would any woman snap her neck to look twice at him, unless it's because they think they saw him on some paedophile profile weeks earlier?

I'm telling you, with his 1930's hairstyle and his toothless grin that guy looks potentially dangerous.

Some girls find weird looking guys attractive, so what r u gonna do?

I like the guy, I just don't think he's particularly easy on the eyes, unless he has a racket in his hands, that is. Maybe if he walked into a restaurant with a tennis outfit on he'd be cute. I'm not gonna say anymore before my girlfriend starts wondering why I'm judging another man's looks so intensely.

FoT, "waves".

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 05:48 PM

Beth: That reject pile line cracked me up!

Posted by baxter 07/26/2007 at 05:48 PM

1 - safin - didn't jim courier say if he could design a perfect body it would be his. can't disagree
2 - tommy - especially after the photoshoot
3 - gasquet - so much better looking in real life than his atp page
4 - rochus - a few inches taller and he'd be number 2. really nice eyes though
5 - youzhny

Posted by Celia 07/26/2007 at 05:49 PM

Sam- do you want to get another bruise from my racket?:-)

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 05:50 PM

baxter: I think most players look better than their ATP page pictures - those are worse than the mug shots on driver's licenses.

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 05:51 PM

LOL Celia

Posted by rudy3 07/26/2007 at 05:56 PM

I've been a cave today finishing Harry I know I'm coming late to the party:

My Hott 5

1. Rafa Nadal - hot hot hot
2. Carlos Moya - womanizing hottie
3. Fernando Verdasco - guilty pleasure
4. Feliciano Lopez - emtpy vessel, but so so pretty
5. Tommy Robredo - yep, hottie

Rafa is the kind of boy every mother could love, and Carlos is also a boy every mother could lover, but in a very very different way :)

Anybody see a trend here...

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 06:00 PM

Sam - it was so true -
my mom was always trying to get me to date her friends' sons . What a collection of geeks.
Baxter - I forgot to mention Gasquet - He is definitely better looking in person - I would give him definite honorable mention status on the hott list .
I think Missie might rate him a little higher.

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 06:04 PM

Rudy 3 - while I think Rafa is adorable - I don't think he the kind a teenager would reject just cause mama liked him .
I don't hear the words - "he is such a nice boy" coming out of my mom's mouth when I look at him. ( that was my signal to run when I was a teen) .
I mean - I could be his Mrs Robinson - no problem.

Posted by rudy3 07/26/2007 at 06:13 PM

Mrs RRRRobinson, ju hare tryink to sedddduce me, no?

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 06:21 PM

Hmmm, rudy3 has a bit of Spanish fever, no?

"I mean - I could be his Mrs Robinson - no problem." I am laughing so hard right now, Beth. I am not old enough to actually be a Mrs. Robinson, but I would have no problem robbing the Rafa cradle. Nope. No problem!

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 06:26 PM

I like that Amylu left her #1 choice as a "goes without saying" kind of thing.

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 06:29 PM

" is that what you think,Raphael? "
laughs seductively and pours a GE, crosses leg provocatively - but sorry - I don't smoke
(at least I think that is my next line)

Posted by Ursula 07/26/2007 at 06:31 PM

Well I'm just a couple of days younger than Björn Borg (he was definately hot and still is) so I simply cannot apply the hot category to teenagers like Nadal, Gasquet, Djokovic etc. would feel like cradle-snatching. Then there are certain habits with some players which no matter how attractive they may be simply turn me off. Some (like T. Haas seem to be too much in love with themselves) etc.

So here my list

1. Federer (tall, broad shoulders to lean on if necessary, beautiful hands and the way he moves on the court (a bit like a silent but deadly predator) is hot to me.

2. Safin (tall and handsome)

3. Max Mirny (another tall guy with a sense of humour)

4. Carlos Moya (tall and obviously a true gentleman

5. Goran Ivanisivic (tall, a bit crazy and what a serve)

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 06:31 PM

I actually just rewatched that movie not too long ago - a great one
coo coo ca choo

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 06:32 PM

LOL at the Mrs Robinson. The problem with that is, if you go by the movie, he ends up with your daughter at the end.

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 06:34 PM

Beth: I love that movie, and the soundtrack. And Katharine Ross ...

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 06:35 PM

Sam - that would suit her just fine
I think that has allready been decided by the RNKAS high brass anyway

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 06:36 PM

Sam - she is a beauty - waht happened to her - she made a couple of really big movies and just seemed to vanish

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 06:36 PM

Beth: In that case, its all good then.

Posted by Celia 07/26/2007 at 06:38 PM

Beth-so, you're in the dirty girl pit again today huh?:-)

Posted by Sam 07/26/2007 at 06:39 PM

Not sure, Beth. I'll have to check the special features on my DVD - they had a segment on her.

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 06:42 PM

Celia - guilty as charged -actually - I rarely leave my post

Posted by Celia 07/26/2007 at 06:43 PM

LOL Beth!

Posted by MariAnne 07/26/2007 at 06:44 PM

1. Nadal - with biceps JMac can only dream of, a fierce bum rivalled only by James Blake, an adorable grin, charisma to spare.

2. Pat Rafter - Handsome face, hot body, explosive serve and volley game, self-deprecating fair dinkum bloke.

3. Goran Ivanisevic - Chiselled Eastern European features

4. Andre Agassi - The eyes

5. Marat Safin - Off the charts on the sex appeal quotient, golden skin, Eurasian almond-shaped eyes, a towering athletic physique, a devastating game for its sheer power. HOT!

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 06:51 PM

Finally some Goran love! I thought I would get ridiculed for putting him on my list.

Have we seen Boom Boom make an appearance today?

Posted by MariAnne 07/26/2007 at 06:51 PM

Honorable mentions:
*Carlos Moya --> I met him in Miami and all I'll say is he knows how to work it with the ladies
*Mark Philipoussis --> pre-Age of love, was hot in 1998

Blast from the past HOTTIES:
*Stefan Edberg --> tall, blonde, graceful, handsome Swede
*Richard Krajicek --> eternally baby-faced cute giant

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 06:54 PM

Goran - no I would not ridicule you for that one - he is crazy and hot in a unique kind of way
by Boom Boom - I assume you mean Becker - if he is on your hot list - I don't know - you safety shield from ridicule might be slippin:)

Posted by FoT 07/26/2007 at 06:54 PM

Hey Ronan - yes, I think the Umps name is Carlos Ramos!

Omar - shame on you! Federer doesn't look like your description to me! lol! And yes, I think I would take notice if he walked into a restaurant and I didn't know who he was. He's tall, nice hair, very broad would take notice. Plus he'd probably be dressed-to-kill. Yes, I definitely would take notice.

Tim - Keifer? I didn't know you rolled like that! lol!!!!! Just joking Tim!...

And Sam...Blake's face with Nadal's body isn't bad, huh! lol! But I really do like Roger's body-type better. He reminds me of a run-way model.

I do, however, want to go on record to say that Roger's TENNIS drew me to him first. The other stuff came later.

Posted by 07/26/2007 at 06:59 PM

ptenisnet our Nishikori bandwagon is suddenly looking very respectable.

Posted by Chiconinja 07/26/2007 at 07:11 PM

I'm not into guys, but I'd say these are the tour hotties:

1. Lopez
2. Andreev
3. Rafa
4. Gasquet

Can't find a 5th good looking guy, seriously...

Posted by Tari 07/26/2007 at 07:13 PM

Oh! Andreev! I forgot about him. See? I'll have to revise my list and add him to share fifth with Gonzo. Or possibility bump Gonzo. Decisions, decisions...

Posted by gvgirl 07/26/2007 at 07:13 PM

Marat Safin
Carlos Moya
Feliciano Lopez
James Blake (With hair)
From another era- Guillermo vilas

Posted by L. Rubin 07/26/2007 at 07:16 PM

Fed's eyebrows give him a somewhat demonic look, and he looks positively wicked when he smiles. Still, one can't deny that he's got an interesting look. The haircut (good lord, his ponytail was awful) was an important step, and he's progressed nicely in the past few years.

Why isn't anyone with me on Younes El Aynaoui? Hot, hot, hot!


Posted by DMS 07/26/2007 at 07:20 PM

*waves hello to Liron* that was an original pick by have an insight the other ladies may not, no?

FoT: LOL, neck down, neck up, very funny.

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 07:21 PM

L. Rubin - I don't know that anyone had a problem with Younes, but I could not get with Chela!

OK, for the record (trying to avoid ridicule here!) I was just asking if Boom Boom (Becker) had made an appearance or been considered for anyone's list. He is not on mine, but he would probably make my Top 5 "favorite players" list, hotness not being a factor.

Posted by Tari 07/26/2007 at 07:22 PM

Liron: That was very funny! It's very interesting how different tastes run. But the haircut was a marked improvement, for sure. I remember trying to convince my sister that Roger was handsome back in the ponytail days, and her face would scrunch up at that. But when she tuned in for TMC 2004 - WOW! She said he was so hot with the new style.

Posted by Lucy 07/26/2007 at 07:23 PM

I'm quite partial to Mrs Santa's list, however:


2. Safin
3. F-Lo
4. James Blake
5. Dancevic (who has replaced Gaudio)

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

Gaudio! Another one who I never would have dreamed would appear on a Top 5 list. This is so interesting.

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 07:28 PM

Jenn- ok - I can get on that bandwagon - I did love his game but hot - never

Roger's ponytail was a really bad look - he is definitely much more attractive now than he was then.
and James should most definitely grow his hair back - I think his brother Thomas could make a hot list honorable mention as well - and he has the hair!
Afraid I do not remember what Younes looks like - so I guess I never thought he was hot
But how have we forgotten - Yannick Noah - omg - totally hott!

Posted by monica 07/26/2007 at 07:34 PM

1. Nadal
2. Nadal
3. Nadal
4. Sampras
5. Juan Carlos Ferrero

Posted by ad 07/26/2007 at 07:36 PM

1. Blake
2. Guga
3. Federer
4. Haas
5. Moya

Posted by jb 07/26/2007 at 07:41 PM

Ok - I maintain that pound for pound, tennis is just the hottest sport goin'. i mean, look at all the yummy treats, how can one narrow it down?

so here goes - but I know i'll change my mind as soon as some cutie crosses the screen...

1. carlos. beautiful. just yum-mee.
2. federer. love the tall leanness and the fact you can dress him up or down. totally portable boy. with great hands. and legs..
3. Marat-ski. he so has 'mom will so not be pleased if you bring me home' vibe goin'. Though on second thought, my mom LOVES him...
4. james blake. just so handsome. and smart. brains are sexy.
5. only 1 left? ferrero. nice legs. good bones.

Honourable mentions - gonzo - (the eyes!), disco tommy, haas, clement, keifer and on and on and on.
Classics - rafter, agassi (hail, its the eyes again lol), edberg - legs legs legs. Well, at least I'm consistent!

Gotta run and find food - I'm salivating now!

Posted by rudy3 07/26/2007 at 08:03 PM

I agree Beth, Hall of Fame Hotties

1. Yannik Noah
2. Stefan Edberg
3. Pat Rafter
4. Carlos Costa

Hottie ATP team: Team Nadal (come on, who are we kidding),
Rafa, Carlos Costa, Uncle Toni, Papa Nadal, and Uncle Miguel Angel

Posted by Ray Stonada 07/26/2007 at 08:04 PM

Liron, I'm with on Younes! I love that guy. Saw him walking down 1st Avenue in the East Village one day too, and he looked cool.

It seems like Rafter is hott enough to transcend retirement. Seemed a little blah, personality-wise, to me, though. Goran, on the other hand, the tormented thing is attractive. When he's not being a total moron, that is.

Posted by Ray Stonada 07/26/2007 at 08:07 PM

There is something about Toni Nadal - looking at the guy makes me feel calm, like everything's under control. I wish he was my coach.

Posted by misael 07/26/2007 at 08:09 PM

Thank you TARI, Rainer is a cutie,he also seems like a classy guy,that has to do alot with his appeal.

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

I'm not sure I would put Papa Nadal into the hottie category, but Uncle Miguel Angel has it going on! Uncle Toni and his new Mercedes is also not a bad package.

Yannick Noah. That surprises me. I can't think of what word I would use to describe him, but hot would not be it.

I really liked whoever said that the criteria should be - if this person is not famous and he walked into a bar/restaurant do you turn and look. I don't think Federer is a bad looking guy at all, but if he is not a pro tennis player, I think very few would be swooning. I think he would get as many swoons as the average decent looking guy in an evening. But if an unknown Rafa walks in in his jeans and a sleeveless shirt, please do not even tell me that you are not looking at that!

Posted by ptenisnet 07/26/2007 at 08:14 PM

I am guessing that was santa.
That bandwagon was the place to be as soon as I got the reins.

Posted by Celia 07/26/2007 at 08:19 PM

Jenn -I totally agree with you on the Papa Nadal thing. He DEFINITELY should not be on ANY hottie list. And if Rafa walked by me and he wasn't a pro tennis player, I wouldn't care, my head would turn so fast I'd crack my neck.

Posted by AmyLu 07/26/2007 at 08:20 PM

ptenisnet, are you aware that Brad Gilbert is on your bandwagon as well?

Posted by AmyLu 07/26/2007 at 08:22 PM

Papa Nadal, not so much on the hott factor. Mama Nadal, however, is most definitely hott.

Posted by FoT 07/26/2007 at 08:23 PM

On kind of the same subject. Someone said before that they can tell what Roger will look like when he's older by looking at Papa Federer.

Well...take that a step further. Have you seen Roddick's parents? I'll leave it at that...

Posted by Tari 07/26/2007 at 08:23 PM

Sorry, but comparing Rafa and Roger constantly is just wearing on me. Why does anyone have to slam others' tastes? I don't need to insult Nadal's looks in order to say that I find Roger very, very attractive, with or without his tennis career. Very hard for some to believe, but there it is.

Posted by FoT 07/26/2007 at 08:25 PM

Here! Here! Tari! I agree with you on your last post!

Posted by Beth 07/26/2007 at 08:25 PM

Jenn- I think if you saw Yannick up close you would think hot! I saw him at a tennis tourney a very long time ago and I was really impressed.
Team Nadal works for me - agree on Papa- he is ok for a50ish year old man - but he is not what I would call super hot.Uncle Miguel certainly fits that category.

Posted by Ren 07/26/2007 at 08:28 PM

steveintheknow: YoU MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!!!

So Ladies, gentlemen, and gay folks: WHO IS NOW THE HOTTEST? The survey says.....(time to work Pete!)????


Hi Abbey

Posted by Jenn 07/26/2007 at 08:30 PM

Tari / FoT - if your last post was a response to mine, I truly apologize. I do not want to slam anyone's taste and I am loving this thread because it really reveals such an interesting and vast difference in taste. I was just wondering how many people consider their main tennis love hot because they like him as a player so much, but not because he is perhaps the hottest guy on the tour. My own list has a lot of personal bias that I freely admit to, and there are guys that are probably hotter than my list that I left off due to the fact that I don't like them as players or their pesonalities.

Anyway, sorry. The last thing I wanted to do is to start any bad feelings in a thread that has been hilarious and controversy-free all day.

FoT - LOL- I have seen Roddick's parents on tv and he does not look like either one of them.

I'm sorry too, Jenn. It was a crabby moment! :) I need to go get a glass of wine or something. ;-)

No hard feelings from me Jenn! Carry on! lol! This has been a great thread but some folks seems to find it difficult that others think someone else is "hot" while they don't (and if you can make sense of that statement I just wrote...then you're better than I am because I have no idea what I just said!) lol!

I cannot believe that I have not put Tommy R on any of my lists so far - I will add him now - my list is incredibly long

Jenn, I really liked your 8:12 post, regarding the question of if these guys weren't famous tennis players, would we be swooning. (Well, I'm not swooning anyway :) )

But as much fun as all this is, and I think it is a lot of fun, that's a great point. There's no way. If I switch gears and look at the WTA, yes, there are some attractive ladies there. But nothing more than what I'd see if I went to walk the local mall tonight. Even my dear Alicia. I'd see ten Alicias tonight. Look at how beautiful the TW ladies are who have posted their pictures so far? So surely it's the same with the guys. (I know, it's not the same, and don't call me Shirley). :)

Sherlock: lets hope pete does not do this to us...cause while they clearly have an embarrassment of riches to choose from, judging by these ever expanding list, my guess is you are going to hear crickets chirping as we would try to come up with more than a couple.
