I’m not in this for the money…

by

(Editor Update: We’re now over at Tennis Now, where we are still pondering who would be in our list of HOATs. Might need to make room for Grigor Dimitrov. Visit us at Tennis Now.)

topfive-pics.jpg

Forget the GOATs for a sec and let’s talk about the HOATs.

My top 5, in no particular order (to each his own, folks): Hewitt, Haas, Safin, Rafter, and Clement. Runners-up: Davydenko, Andy Murray, and Youzhny.

Who’s on your list? Tell us!

    2. Paul Henri Mathieu
    3. Novak Djokovic
    4. Emilio Sanchez
    5. Patrick Rafter

  13. lizzie Says:

    Haven’t you seen Tomas Berdych?! He is so hot!!! And is play is the best as well. Look it up! Tomas Berdych is the hottest, no one can compete!

  14. Cheese Whiz Says:

    1. Janko Tipsarevic. Something about a boy with tats, piercings, geeky glasses and bulging biceps that reads Russian literature and German philosophy. Okay. Even without that, he’s gorgeous.

    2. Rafael Nadal. Killer body. Killer smile. The best ass I have ever seen. I don’t even like asses.

    3. Hernan Gumy. Safin’s new coach. Google him. He’s beautiful.

    4. Marat Safin. I’m sure it’s not doing his confidence much good to be eclipsed in hotness by his own coach.

    5. Feliciano Lopez. Almost too pretty to be hot. And his junk is always falling out of the jockstrap. But those eyes….

    • Tipsy_fan Says:

      Fully agree.
      Janko – he can carry off the boy-next-door image as well as the tennis hunk with the chiselled look, glares and tats and an incredible knowledge of Russian literature mixed with humility.

      And Roger Federer – Greek God personified, even if less chiselled now then before.

  15. kitzmuffin Says:

    Marat Safin is the hottest male on the planet!

  16. Safinette Says:

    Top 5?

    1. Marat Safin speaking Russian

    2. Marat Safin speaking Spanish

    3. Marat Safin speaking English

    4. Marat Safin breaking racquets

    5. Marat Safin off the court, after a shower, in a white tee, board shorts, and flip flips. With sunglasses perched on his head. Any language will do.

    And, frankly, it’s about 50/50 looks & personality!

  17. emi Says:

    5. Joachim Johansson

  34. Erwin Says:

    (hmm, are the women feeling left out? Is it time to create a HOAT: women’s edition?)

  35. butter Says:

    no E lets leave the women alone; NAMAN, don’t ruin the imagination. ahahaha

  36. Maria Says:

    yeah, leave the girls alone – they’ve been objectified enough… let’s not set the female movement back 20 years!

  37. tennisfan Says:

    marat safin (drop dead gorgeous)
    janko tipsarevic
    tommy haas
    andy roddick
    novak djokovic

  38. Mariska Says:

    Not to objectify him, disrespect him, inadvertently denigrate his considerable skill as a tennis player or anything at all like that, but….just one glimpse of Janko Tipsarevic is enough to make my heart skip a beat….I think it’s the Russian literature that does it for me. :) (well, that and those big soulful eyes.) Seriously, how often do you find a top-class athlete who’s also such an intellectual?

    Marat Safin is pretty hot as well, and Novak Djokovic has to be on the list just for his adorable sweetness and goofy impressions!

  39. tavi Says:

    novak djokovic is dreamy

  40. love40mp Says:

    From my viewfinder…strictly looks only

    2. Rafael Nadal
    3. Roger Federer – my favorite hottie!
    4. Patrick Rafter
    5. James Blake

    Cuteness Award goes to the giant with a baby face: John Isner!

  41. Anita Says:

    1.-L Hewitt
    2.-N Djokovic
    3.-JC Ferrero
    4.-G Gaudio
    5.-F Gonzalez

    Haas and roddick arent so bad either =*

  42. Leo Says:

    1) Marat Safin (undoubtedly the most beautiful tennis player ever walked the earth)
    2) Richard Gasquet (just adorable… the French accent doesn’t hurt)
    3) Juan Monaco (I upgraded Gaston for Juan)
    4) Tommy Robredo (Tommy trumps Feliciano any time!)
    &
    5) Alexander Waske (yup. you heard it here first)

    Is anyone tallying up votes? Can there an honorable mentions list. Mr. Congeniality?

  43. FunkyDuke Says:

    a pretty good taste, girls (and boys), you know ‘em all! :)
    but you’ve forgotten one really cool dude! THOMAS ENQVIST! ;)

  44. irina Says:

    what about David Ferrer?! i cannot believe he is not on any list yet!
    1. David Ferrer
    2. Bjorn Borg – is that weird?
    3. Rafa Nadal
    4. Feliciano Lopez
    5. Michael Chang – again – is that weird?

  45. johngalt Says:

    whew nice list..just Safin, Gasquet and Nadal for me..haha

  46. alexandra Says:

    watch this video montage…i think all of them are in it. but heres my top 5

    1 djokovic
    2 gasquet
    3 safin
    4 haas
    5 nadal

    these are my faves but evreyone in here is gorgeus!!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmGQYohVZDg

    i dont know how to do the clicky thing…so just copy and paste it or go to youtube.com and look up “Hot tennis players: Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Safin. etc” thats the exact title.

  47. Ana Says:

    1. Verdasco
    2. Ferrer
    3. Blake
    4. Lopez
    5. Tursunov

    I don’t understand all this Nadal love. Sure, he’s got the body, but the face and the mannerisms just ruin it all…..I have never understood why he doesn’t just wear looser pants.

    To each his/her own, I guess…

  48. rebecca Says:

    fav topic…

    james blake
    andy roddick
    marat safin
    roger federer
    pat rafter….or for a current guy tommy haas

  49. alexandra Says:

    after seein more recent pics of feliciano lopez i think im replacing haas with lopez…so its

    1.djokovic( without the ugly goatee)
    2.gasquet
    3.safin
    4.lopez
    5.nadal (although he might be off this list soon…)

  50. Sonja Says:

    Wow, all those different lists are fascinating!
    Interestingly, folks like Safin and Haas just don’t do it for me. Gotta look up that Tipsarevic guy though.

    Here’s my top 5:
    1. Rafa Nadal – WHAT A BODY. OH. MY. GOD. Also, gotta love the boyish smile.
    2. Nole Djokovic – mainly, it’s the charisma and those eyes (green fading into brown – ever noticed?)
    3. Fernando Gonzalez – just pretty.
    4. David Ferrer – he looks kinda weird on-court, but totally gorgeous off-court.
    5. David Nalbandian – not the typical hottie, but he’s got something… I also like his physique.

    No. 1 and 2 are WAY ahead though.

  51. Kathryn L Says:

    There’s only one man who does it for me tennis wise and it’s gotta be the Federer. There’s something incredibly sexy about that man, he seems like a total gentleman and that’s very attractive. Not conventionally good looking either which adds to the appeal.

    Wouldn’t say no to Novak or Roddick either…they got that something too.

    One thing that has totally flown over my head is Nadal. He’s all greasy and sweaty looking even before he starts to play! His talent is quite attractive though…that sounded dodgy!

  52. FeFe Says:

    Is there any other name that comes to mind first for tennis hottie other than Safin? Seriously. If the ATP didn’t have Marat, they would have to invent him. Every one else is just a pair of boxers or briefs but who moons you baby!

    Mr. Bryan or Stanford should pay Safin to play doubles in 2008. He is a good doubles player and think of the buzz and I’m sure TV coverage if he played Aussie ’08.

  53. tennisfan Says:

    I agree 100% with the poster above. It’s not possible to be as hot as Marat is.
    If you need a proof check the link below…

  54. LilipOops Says:

    -Nole
    -Ferrer
    -Rafael Na…
    -Agassi
    -Safin

  55. krista Says:

    safin
    gasque-licious
    ferrer
    ferrero

    how come nobody thought of tommy robredo??
    he’s my top 2..!

  56. kiki Says:

    1. Rafa-too good to be true
    2. Ferrer
    3. Guga
    4. Rafter
    5. Coria

  57. Erwin Says:

    krista: robredo’s sprinkled in there. Don’t worry — he’s getting some love!

  58. ponies Says:

    Rafa of course! especially as appears on your grass is always greener post.

    http://cornedbeefhash.wordpress.com/2007/11/20/grass-is-always-greener/

  59. Bunterette Says:

    1. Djokovic – oh what a body

    2. Djokovic – that treasure trail…mmm

    3. Djokovic – and he’s smart

    4. Djokovic – and funny too

    Totally in lust…

    5. Safin (previously would have been top but now eclipsed)

  60. Sarah Says:

    I am all about the Spanish Armada!!!

    1. Feliciano Lopez … almost too hot to even look at

    2. David Ferrer … amazing eyes & spirit of determination

    3. Fernando Verdasco … simply a cutie

    4. Nole Djokovic … who can ignore those eyes & that personality

    5. Rafa Nadal … great style.

  61. Jenny Says:

    1. David Ferrer Those amazing eyes and smile
    2. Fernando Gonzalez
    3. Roger Federer
    4. Carlos Moya
    5. Tommy Haas

  62. Erwin Says:

    If you’re going to lump Novak into something non-Serbian, I think he’s spent a lot of time in Germany, no? Marat Safin is the one who has spent time training in Barcelona…

  63. joanna Says:

    1. marat safin (the hottest tennis player ever)
    2. gilles simon
    3. Novak Djokovic
    4. Dimitry Tursunov
    5. Frank Dancevic

  64. Sarah Says:

    Erwin: I am aware that Djokovic has no affiliation with Spain. I assumed that in a tennis forum it would be common knowledge that he is from Serbia. I also assumed that common knowledge of ratios would illustrate that 4 out of my 5 picks were from Spain, hence the emphasis on the “Spanish Armada.” My mistake!

  65. Faith Says:

    1. RAFA NADAL – sex on legs … Hott as and amzing player, that body and BUM !!!!! Drool
    2. Andy Roddick – hott
    3. Rodger Federer – Mr cool
    4. Marat Safin – Aggressive
    5. Pete Sampras – ( dont no what it is just fit)

  66. Angelique Says:

    My top 5 are:

    Safin (who else)
    Moya
    Verdasco
    Lopez
    Canas
    Rafter did come close though

    But can the boys please stop wearing long shorts I want to see some legs.

    no puedo cree que pongan a berdych en la lista. quisas la persona que lo voto le gustaria enseñarle educacion. no se provoca al publico español luego de ganarle a nadal en España.

  76. rob Says:

    If I could get one of my hand-painted saints medals on the neck of Rafter that would be my biggest “get” yet.

  77. b Says:

    mirnyi – nice eyes, smile etc etc

    donald young to young to refer to as such but looks like he might be quite the looker

    4)The Dkokster
    5)Novak Djokovic!!! Yummm!

    He’s so sexy. Cute smile, great body! no shirt……

    2) Andy Roddick
    yummmmmmmmm.

    3) Marat Safin
    short hair only.

    4) James Blake
    Without any stuble.

    5) Richard Gasquet
    love a man in Lacoste short shorts

  80. Angelique Says:

    Murray Oh come on. In what department. He is skinny, pimples, pale and that hair.

  81. Colette Says:

    Laura – you’ve clearly got it as bad for Nole as I have!

    Have been watching the Hopman Cup this week and keep melting inside at every glimpse of that stomach. And the glasses and those eyes….woooh

    I pray that he’ll take to wearing better fitting shorts this coming year – it looks as though he has the most wonderful tight little ass but the shorts are too loose to fully appreciate it, or any other delights. Adidas – please take note and do better.

  84. dance-a-vic Says:

    Nole is the only guy who makes perspiration work for him. I’m watching Hopman Cup, and Hantuchova-lookalike Mardy Fish looks all oily and stinky, while Nole’s sweat is almost dainty and just makes him look even hotter. I think it’s that hair; it is impervious to moisture of any type.

  85. tarni Says:

    1. * Nolak, Djokovich*
    ohh n thats it
    yummy!!!

  86. b Says:

    how did i forget j-w tsonga – muhammad ali of tennis
    beautiful guy

    berdych and clement should be somewhere on my list too at least h-mention

  87. Chris Says:

    Wow….this has gotta be the longest comments ever…..
    So, let me chime in:

    1, Tursunov – funny (more intellectual than Djokers’ slapstick) and soooooo sexy
    2, Safin – was not a fan until he cut his hair short and we had a moment (eye contact, kind words, and autograph were exchanged) at Wimbledon 2007.
    3, Gasquet – not really my type, but have you seen his backside?
    4, Rafter – truly husband material
    5, Martin Damm (doubles player) – I sometimes fantasize being Leander Paes…
    HM – It’s a shocker……wait for it…….Kolya. Based on his on court work ethic, I have a feeling that he would be awesome in bed!

  88. Kirk Says:

    My HOAT Five:

    6. Tommy Haas (just pretty, when he’s not fat)

    8. Mijail Youzhny (cuttie russian soldier)
    9. Thomas Berdych (cuttie czech baby-face)
    Bonus track: Grosjean (I heard he has a ‘big tool’ in his pants!), Brzezicki (lovely blond from Argentina), Del Potro (young with potential), Igor Andreev (russian in the style of safin), Gaudio (he’s not playing too much right now, but remember him on the rolland garros final in 2004)… So, I think that’s all…

    olivier patience
    clement (did you see his lacoste commercial way back?)
    robredo (sans wrinkles and bandana)
    davydenko (with 1000 more pounds)
    and yeah.. safin (duh)

  135. Yali Says:

    Haha ok this is fun, although it’s not really that easy. I play competetive tennis myself and love following the professional tours, but it’s hard to judge players on merely their game or merely their looks and personality…we’ll see how it goes! :)

    In no particular order…
    Djokovic – really cute, smart, funny, sweet smile… and not bad without the shirt either. love this guy
    Verdasco – nice smile and he was quite cute with short hair
    Ferrero – not bad at all!
    Clement – a little older but still.. he’s got something about him. (When I worked at Stockholm Open this fall Michael Llodra said during the trophy presentation that “my friend is feeling a bit lonely, if anyone has a date for him, let me know”. terrific)
    Coria – saw him at Wimbledon in 2004, very cute close up
    Nalbandian – not exactly good-looking, but he seems like a nice guy when he’s cleaned up and smiling
    Blake – I liked it better when he had long hair though
    Hewitt – without the silly beard… yeah, sure, why not?
    Pim-Pim Johansson – school book good-looking

    I’m not sure I get all this Safin hype though..hehe :P and eoow on Haas and Murray

  136. Angelique Says:

    Andres Seppi (looks like a surfer boy)

    5. Mario Ancic…mmm…enough said and only takes pics with girl fans
    6. Carlos Moya…so hot up close
    7. Amir Delic…wow wow and more wows and so sweet
    8. Thomas Enqvist…remember him? delicious

  138. Monica Says:

    I forgot that Andy Murray up close and in person is actually quite cute and so is Giles Simon. I used to think Lleyton was cute but he has really bad skin. His wife and daughter are super cute though. Roger is actually quite attractive too. I love Nole very very much but he just looks like a little boy. Juan Carlos is super hot too.

  139. Colette Says:

    Haven’t seen any little boys with a body like Nole’s myself – he looks fully grown up to me!

  140. Monica Says:

    I guess cos I’m 4 yrs older than him I think he’s young. He’s really sweet though. I am super lucky to have met him.

  141. Aline Says:

    Marat Safin is the most handsome guy!!!

  190. Novak Djokovic and Kosovo Says:

    Djokovic, made a taped speech last month for a rally in Belgrade in which he spoke against Kosovo’s independence. “My life is tennis, my life is sport, this is my job,” Djokovic said. “I’m not trying to get involved in politics, and this is the final sentence from me. I gave that speech because I felt very bad and very disappointed in what’s going on in our country. “The people who know my past and they understand what I’m saying — my father and my aunt, my uncle all grew up there. They were born in KOSOVO, on the NORTH KOSOVO and my family used to live there for 30 years. I was there many times. So it kind of touched me in that moment that this was my quest to give support by my country.”

    K O S O V O (Albanian: Kosova; Serbian: Косово и Метохија; Kosovo i Metohija) is a disputed territory on the Balkan Peninsula.
    Following the Kosovo War in 1999 the territory came under the interim administration of the United Nations. In February 2008, the Provisional Institutions of Self-Government, an assembly under UNMIK, declared Kosovo’s independence as the Republic of Kosovo (Albanian: Republika e Kosovës). Its independence is recognized by some countries and opposed by others, including the Republic of Serbia, which continues to claim sovereignty over it as the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija ,Kosovo’s total population is estimated between 1.9 and 2.2 million …92% Albanians, 5.3% Serbs and 2.7% others . Before 1999 and Kosovo war, on Kosovo lived about 500.000 Serbs, and now there are only about 150.000 serbs.

    NORTH KOSOVO or Northern Kosovo (Serbian: Северно Косово, Severno Kosovo; Albanian: Kosova Veriore) is an unofficial name for a region in the northern part of Kosovo with an ethnic Serb majority that functions largely autonomously from the remainder of the ethnic-Albanian-majority state, instead operating as a de facto part of Serbia. Ibarski Kolašin (Ибарски Колашин), a Serbian toponym that pre-dates the ethnic conflict of the 1990s, is also used to refer to the area.

  191. Novak Djokovic Says:

    The air in Belgrade, even on a sunny winter morning, has a pervasive chemical tang — a toxic mix of coal smoke, bus exhaust, and the raw effluents of heavy industry. The city has actually fallen on hard times since the bloody dismemberment of Yugoslavia, though its standard of living has been falling for 25 years. Belgrade’s leaders and their armies fought and lost four wars in the 1990s, and the territory they rule, which now consists of Serbia alone, continues to shrink with the recently declared independence of Kosovo, a rebel southern province. Serbia is, in short, a humbled and broken country, its international reputation blackened by the atrocities of ethnic cleansing — and the Serbs, always fond of salvation narratives, are these days in need of a redeemer.
    From all appearances, they have settled on Djoković. His hatchet face, his burning eyes seem to be on every front page, on every billboard. “He has done more for this country than any politician,” my first Belgrade cabdriver told me. A visitor has to remind himself frequently that Djoković is just a tennis player — a tennis player who is now 20. When Djoković comes home from the tour, the prime minister meets him at the airport; thousands of people gather for frenzied celebrations outside City Hall. Tennis, never before a big sport in Serbia, is suddenly the country’s consuming passion. It’s not simply that Djoković — along with two other locals, Jelena Janković and Ana Ivanović, rising stars on the women’s circuit — has lately shown people that tennis can be a road to fame and fortune. It’s also, poignantly, that he presents to the outside world an infinitely more attractive face than the sinister gangsters and seedy war criminals whom most foreigners learned to associate with Serbs in recent years. At least that’s what I think that cabbie meant.
    It’s hard to overstate the extent of Novakmania. When he and I meet, at the modest offices of his family’s sports-marketing business out in the concrete-block sprawl of New Belgrade, he sits at a desk, lanky and loose-jointed, wearing jeans and a rumpled white collarless shirt. He extols the charms of the medieval city just across the river — the traditional Serbian restaurants, the great old neighborhoods, the nightclubs — known as splavovi — on barges in the Danube. Unfortunately, he admits, he can no longer walk through the streets of his hometown. “People recognize me and — I don’t want to say bother me — but they just come up. It’s not really relaxing. All eyes on you.”
    This is true even when he’s halfway across the world. After Djoković beat Federer in Montreal, the awards emcee described him as a Croatian. Djoković gently corrected him — too gently, according to Serbian nationalists back home. Debates about his patriotism raged in the Belgrade papers. At other times, he has inflamed anti-nationalists by flashing the Serbian three-fingered victory salute after matches. To many Balkan people, this salute is deeply ominous. It was the signature gesture of the Serbian militias — Milošević’s death squads — in Bosnia and Croatia and Kosovo. Djoković told me, defensively: “I’m not extremist. Three fingers is our symbol. It’s like you have two fingers for peace. Three fingers is for us, for Serbia. That’s what all the people throughout the history of this country did, when they are successful and when they want to show where they’re from.” (That is not quite true — the salute was popularized in the early 1990s by Vuk Drašković, a nationalist intellectual. But, to be fair, young Serbs like Djoković grew up with it, and most don’t associate it with war.) At any rate, Djoković says he’s not even interested in politics.
    Still, there’s no escaping such things in Serbia. The basic question facing the country today is whether to turn toward Europe in hopes of joining the E.U. or toward Putin’s Russia, which wants Serbia in its orbit. This decision has historic implications, and Serbs are fiercely divided over it. Djoković comes down on the side of the E.U., which he thinks promises greater prosperity and a chance to leave the dark past behind. But the loss of Kosovo — and the E.U. has strongly backed its independence — is a very painful business for most Serbs, including Djoković. His father, Srdjan, comes from Kosovo, and as a result Novak considers it his true home. Joining Europe, moreover, means joining the enemy from the last Yugoslav war in 1999, when NATO bombers pounded Belgrade with thousands of airstrikes for 78 days. Young Djoković was there throughout the terror. “Very bad memories,” he says. “It’s something which I don’t really like to talk about.”
    That year — 1999 — is, however, another inescapable subject. Lining a wall of the room where we talk are many trophies, but the one that Djoković jumps up to show me is an odd-looking gold-plated spire that he received after playing a local charity match. “Do you see this tower?” he asks. “It’s called Avala Tower. This tower is a symbol for Belgrade. Whenever you come to the city from the south, you see this. It was the biggest radio and TV transmitter in our country, and NATO forces, they crushed it. Now they’re planning to build a beautiful, even taller one, so we were playing a charity exhibition to raise money for the rebuilding.” Djoković relates this story without rancor. War happens; it’s horrific; he’s just doing his bit for his town.
    The Serbian Tennis Federation has no courts, no training facilities. So how did the country, with less than 10 million people and no strong tennis tradition, suddenly begin producing world-class players? Dušan Orlandić, the Federation’s general manager, told me, “It’s like we had a garage for a Yugo, which was the world’s worst car, and then one day we get up and find parked in there a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, and a Formula One car.” Janko Tipsarević, another young pro from Belgrade, reckons it may have been something in the depleted uranium of all those NATO bombs.

    Angelique: the list is entirely subjective, so it is not strange that we do not have exactly the same taste:)
    As for Canas, I suppose I dislike him partly because of his doping business, which did not exactly do much for neither his image nor his body which seems, well, a bit fake. and the ponytail and greasy hair makes him look a bit like a drug dealer…sorry :P

  267. I love Rafa Says:

    RAFAEL NADAL!!!! He’s the only one for me <3 :DDD

  268. Teo Says:

    1)Marat Safin, without a shadow of a doubt the “gorgeous-est” man on this bloody planet and universe for all it’s worth.Not only is his physique a killer(i have learned NEVER to look at any Marat pic 4 hours before going to bed,because if i do…i won’t be able to get any sleep) but also he has such a fascinating personality.And he looks good from any possible angle.

    2)Rafael Nadal…well,the body speaks for itself and also his adorable smile,and his shyness off-court,combined with his paradoxical aggression on-court.And he’s humble and down to earth.Love you Rafa!He’s my fave tennis player

    3)Tipsarevic,ok,so he’s not even close to the above-mentioned two hunks,but he has something so alluring in him…

    4)unbelievable,i know,(being a fanatic RAFA-fan)Federer.But only and only when he’s wearing black,like he did in 2007′s US Open.I don’t like him generally,but i couldn’t believe my eyes when i saw him in that outfit…

  269. Rosie Says:

    There’s something about Gilles Simon that also drives me crazy. So, my new list is as follows:

    1 – MARAT SAFIN (simply perfect)
    2 – RICHARD GASQUET (adorable)
    3 – GILLES SIMON (he’s got something…)
    4 – DAVID FERRER (sex on legs)
    5 – NOVAK DJOKOVIC (puppy eyes)

    and Safin, and Andy Roddick

  280. elizabennet Says:

    Hottest of All Time? Doesn’t that mean the one person with, objectively speaking, the best looks, biggest charisma etc?

    Surely that’s MARAT SAFIN, the Errol Flynn of the ATP tour, and the only man who makes other players look like weedy schoolboys. He’s a six-foot-four smouldering Russian Adonis of beauty so perfect you want to weep.

    Fact: even his on-court craziness drives women wild.

    Bonus points: cool name, insane humour, total lack of vanity, the I-party-when-I-want-to attitude, coach Hernan Gumy.

    Safin cannot be oblivious to the effect he has (on both sexes, I might add) but then, he doesn’t give a damn, does he? and that’s exactly why he’s HOAT! I’d be his ballgirl anyday.

    Runners-up:
    Felice Lopez. Sultry, lycra-loving pre-Raphaelite gym bunny.
    Ferrero. Rocking the debauched aristocrat vibe.
    Moya. Another he-man, master of the headband.
    Haas. 70s leisurewear model/Ken doll hybrid.
    Nadal. Musclebound Mama’s boy. How he gets through the day without his arse being grabbed left and right is beyond me.

    Sorry but I still don’t get…
    Roddick. What’s hot about gluing a sweat-soaked baseball cap to your skull?
    Federer. A class act but about as sexy as a Bible circle.
    Murray. Feral teenager with hair like a sofa explosion.
    Stepanek. Creature from the Black Lagoon.

  281. foxy lady Says:

    Marat safin is hottest by far, he is so beautiful that he make’s all other men seem obsolete, i mean there is nothing that isnt perfect about him, he has a masculine beauty that is very rare, and very few men are blessed with it. for example look at armony in his feature’s, he has a perfect manly jaw, gorgeous high cheekbone’s, very well defined eyebrow’s, gorgeous smile, the most beautiful sexy pair of eye’s i’ve ever seen, gorgeous hair, and his body is a tall 6’4 frame of exquisite sexy devine manly perfection, and his inner beauty is just as perfect as his phisical beauty. and god that sexy russian accent of his, and yes i do get turned on when he looses his temper on court. What a man!!

  282. emina Says:

    1. marat safin
    2. gasquet
    3. feliciano lopez
    4. djokovic
    5. rafter

  283. Longcat Says:

    I’m just a little disturbed by Foxy Lady’s quite… detailed descripted of Marat Safin and how she is turned on by him

    Okay a lot disturbed.

    In fact that’s happened a lot during my reading of most of this.

    I’ll admit he looks nice in a suit, just a bit crazy for me.

    Lu Yen-Hsun is pretty good looking though. Nice change from South Americans, Europeans, and Spanish.

  284. elizabennet Says:

    But that is precisely the Safin effect!! Something about him makes otherwise rational people go gaga, from fans to TV commentators to fellow players. He’s hugely popular because of his off-the-wall personality, not in spite of it.

    Power to Foxy Lady then, for a heartfelt description of Marat’s features. I don’t doubt if Shakespeare were alive today, he’d be busy writing another hundred sonnets in praise of this man’s stratospheric beauty.

  285. Aneme Says:

    Safin: sexy and dangerous bad boy
    Nadal: gorgeous sexy sweetness and innocence
    Feli Lopez: unbelieveable beautiful metrosexual, amazing eyes

  286. laura Says:

    New list:
    1)Tipsy
    2)Haas
    3)Lopez
    4)Verdasco
    5)tied (I wish): Robredo/Ancic

    Who dropped from the top to the very bottom of my list today? Nole.
    Beauty isn’t all if you happen to be a heartless-cheating-cruel long time gf traitor that let’s fame go to head & drops real love for some money hungry cougar!!! shame, shame on you..

  287. sophie Says:

    1. Federer – with a shirt, without a shirt, in a suit, in jeans…the man is a god.
    2. Tipsarevic – intense and thoughtful and damn hot as well.
    [bit of a gap between these two and anyone else]
    3. Clement – got a nice pirate thing going on.
    4. Safin – pretty good looking.
    5. Wawrinka – not so hot but very very cute.

    And that’s about it I think. Though I really must mention one of the most beautiful men to ever grace a tennis court, umpire Carlos Ramos. I mean wow. He is stunning.

  288. sophie Says:

  291. Xenia Says:

    Marat Mikhailovich Safin, the only trully beautiful man in tennis, and one of very few beautiful men in general. He is a manly, tall dark, amazingly handsome speciman, that i only thought dream’s were made of. And his eye’s are the most stunningly beautiful and soulful pair of eye’s that i have ever seen. I look at all other men and realize how pathetic they all are in comparison. And it’s not just about his look’s trust me, everything about that man is perfect, but haven’t got the time to wright it all down.Yes he’s the man of my dream’s, but anyway for the girl’s who think Federar and Murray are hott, I have nothing against you, each is to there own. It would be a boring world if everyone had the same taste.

  292. S3 ... Says:

    Marat safin 1) And the only one. I agree with some of the previous comment’s, saying that he make’s all other tennis player’s look like weedy little school boys, its true he does. So there’s only the beautiful, manly russian sexgod for me. The beauty, the power, and the intensity of that gorgeous, sexy, beast of a man just blows me away!! I love him..

  302. Sherri Says:

    Safin. No one else even comes close to this Russian beast. He is pure sex – with long hair, short hair, curly hair, crew cut, facial hair, clean shaven, wearing a shirt, no shirt – doesn’t matter. He is the hottest man I’ve seen both in and outside of tennis.

  303. Larissa Says:

    Very well said ladies, I completely agree, Marat Safin is definatly the hottest man alive. And i’m telling all the other women out there, you have not seen hot until you witness the beauty of this man. He is divine!!

    I love me some sexy men. And Safin completes me on hottness department. He got the looks, the game, the temper, the humor, the charisma and so on. I guess we really dont have time enough to talk about his greatness. Man is a effing legend.

    Now back to some “normal” men

    Nadal …hello that a$$
    Guga…..aawww sweet smile..always
    wawrinka…cute as a teddy bear
    Ernest Gulbis…cute smile.

  308. Yali Says:

    elizabennet – I do not agree with all your opinons, but that may have been the linguistically best post I of all in this thread (considering that fact, I must also appreciate you choice of alias!). Seriously, the “Bonus points: cool name, insane humour, total lack of vanity, the I-party-when-I-want-to attitude, coach Hernan Gumy.”-part made me roll over with laughter (I wonder where we would end up if players and coaches had to come in packs? I guess Nadal wouldn’t be topping all lists anymore.. ;) ) And the Roddick/Federer/Murray/Stepanek-dismissal is so spot on you want to dance around in circles.

    and Sannak, you are absolutely right about Nalbandian. The guy’s smile could melt a glacier.

    Ohhh Janko! and, in a totally different way…Ohhhh Nole! 1-2? 2-1? luv ‘em both as much. I’ve seen them a few times, up-close and personal (not personal enough though!), an they are both DDG.
    I know, I still need 3 more, so:
    3) Feli Lopez – simply amazing, could just model for a living. The legs, the eyes, the butt…wooow, mercy!
    4) Tie: Bolleli (belisimo!) and Ginepri..an Italian thing..mama mia!
    5) Verdasco – have you seen his Cosmo ‘au natural’ stint? Ole! and those eyes/mouth/nose..perfect features dipped in semi-dark chocolate..mmm!

    Ok, I gotta admit, lately I find myself enjoying Gilles Simon’s game..and cute face & smile. He is like a kitty-kat..I know, way too skinny, specially the legs. That’s why I just give him the cutsie honorable mention..meow!

  314. Kim Says:

    1. SAFIN – hotter than hot whatever he is doing; smashing racquets, laughing and joking, answering stupid questions with dry wit, ranting in slightly mixed up English with sexy Russian accent

    2. Federer – I’ve never really been sure why but it works for me, there are two sides to him- the dark and moody or the boyish charm and I love both; also for some reason I love to hear him speaking Swiss German (even though I don’t understand it)

    3. Tipsy – the glasses, the big beautiful eyes, the tats, the stubble, everything

    4. Ancic – just all round divinely cute

    5. Djokovic – charmer, (D)joker, wonderful sense of humour

    Below the top five, in no particular order:

    Roddick (again, the body)
    Gilles Simon (gorgeous smile)

  315. Andrea Says:

    1. Rafa- LOL, I completely agree with the person who said “Greatest ass I’ve ever seen…. and I don’t even like asses…..” SO true. But it’s so much more than that also, he’s so humble and such a gentleman. And that smile makes me melt, omfg. Not to mention the sexy accent….
    2. Nole- Eyes, eyes, EYES! Personality, personality, PERSONALITY! Killer bod too.
    3. Fernando Gonzalez- Oooh Fernando’s also got those gorgeous eyes. He’s beautiful all around.

    Marat Mikhailovich Safin.

    Safin is the reason there’s a HOAT poll.

    He’s the reason 50% of women go to tennis tournaments even they’re not really into the sport. (Well I might not be accurate, I’m exaggerating, but there’s are women like that) (And the reason ATP is teeming with money with fine money coming from him. :))

    Win or lose, fans love him. Even if he sends balls flying their way. (He overturned Aussies when he won AO 2005 against Aussie Hewitt. Ah, such is the charm of Marat…)

    Whatever his hairstyle is,
    Being upset,
    talking to himself,
    foot-faulting,
    berating umpires,
    his deadly backhand down the line,

    and when Safin loses it, it’s either

    racquet breaking,
    chair breaking,
    racquet eating,
    pulling his shorts down or anything outrageous,

    and most especially he doesn’t put himself in a pedestal. Although we’re the ones who put him there. He’s very gentlemanly, and a sport too. (I remember when he hit an net official, he kissed the old lady afterwards) Very professional. Fan-friendly. Enigmatic.

    And he doesn’t need the six-pack abs to look manly. It’s effortless for him. He’s such a natural he trumps everyone in the tour!

    He is HOAT. Not just in tennis, maybe of the whole world as well.

    Not just physical, but his wit too. I read his interviews, and sometimes I am just dumbfounded by his words (he was very mature at 18 to boot). I find him the most intellectual person on sports. Although it is given that almost no one is impressively smart in that category, I believe that he’s way too wise than me. (I am a BS IT student) I will never forget Marat’s one-liners. Classic.

    HOAT!

    It’s sad that he’s going to retire though. Tennis will never be the same without Safin.

    Sorry for being so dramatic, guys. :)

  350. DarkLady Says:

    Well, including me. Safin got my vote. The numbers tell. But I’m puzzled by Tipsarevic…. and Federer. He’s not exactly hot, but just the most accomplished tennis player, right?

    • Cheri Says:

      Thanks for all the work Darklady, you know what puzzles me is Djokovic??? really ? Hot?
      And I am shocked that Verdasco is not at the top also…

      And I do think that there is something to us women liking the bad boy hence the #1 spot consumed by Safin…e

    • Erwin Says:

      Hmm, so do we think that Gilles Simon will fill the void left by Marat Safin?!

      • Cami Says:

        Yes we do :)
        I like Simon’s “I am French, sophisticated, and tennis is just one of my many sophisticated pursuits” grumpiness much more than Marat’s “I am Russian, break rackets and that’s pretty much it” grumpiness. Marat is soooo 2005 :)

        But for all Marat’s fans out there, I would just like to say: I understand ;)

  360. Cami Says:

    Los hombres tambien podemos opinar de los tenistas mas atractivos no?

    Me atrevo a decir que Rafa Nadal es horroroso, tiene cara de mono, pero tiene el mejor trasero de todo el circuito

    Arnaud Clement es bajito pero esquisiiito.. me lo como enterito

    Feliciano Lopez parece modelo mas que tenista, lindo lindo…

    Los Alemanes Kiefer y Haas son estupendos!

    Lastima que los argentinos no son tan lindos, digo lastima porque solo Gaudio representa bien a mi pais, y Pico Monaco tiene un forrazo de cuerpo, pero debo debo decir que los chilenos son bastante hermosos
    mis favoritos Fernando Gonzalez y Nicolás Massu (hermosos ojos)

    Mis top 5:

    -Arnaud Clement
    -Fernando Gonzalez
    -Nicolas Kiefer
    -Nicolás Massú
    -Marat Safin

    be forward of Mexico in the contender stakes.
