Can a person's tennis game make him or her sexy?

What do you guys think?

I am a huge fan of 1-handed backhands, volleying and finesse combined with power and angles (okay so I like a lot of all court tennis). Having said that I often find that players like Federer, Ljubo, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Mauresmo and Gasquet seem way sexier than they are.

I find their games to be so beautiful especially the way the move on the court. Have you ever had the experience of knowing that a person is not really conventionally attractive but that watching them play tennis (or another skill like piano) makes you find them attractive?

btw, Gasquet is cute no matter what.

Watching Stepanek hitting dropshots often gets me aroused. So sometimes it can create slightly embarassing situations..

right

Yes, I think sometimes what you said is truth...Federer is not sexy but when he's playing some awesome point we can reconsider the question

Because sometimes, you just need the obvious to be stated.

I have to disagree with you girls, Roger is sexy!So exotic. He has a great body and I know many others agree with me!!
A tennis players game does increase their sexiness though.

i agree roger is sexy anyway, although his tennis does magnify the sex factor 10 fold.

as for just in general, yes i think the way some people play makes them more attractive than they actually are, and it can definitely work the other way as well, some people are attractive but the way they play is so ugly they just start to look uglier to you in general.

Pierce or Lindsay's games are so brutal. This gay man would love to be dominated and beaten by a BiG Babe with a giant dildo (If Lindsay brings Jon it would be so much better )

It's the serves for me. Nothing is more sexy make a man who can serve well. Case in point, I usually don't find Ivo sexy untill he starts serving.

Whatever... FOREVER.

"martinatreue":

I have always considered the 2-handed backhand clumsy and awkward,and in the case of men players,almost an admission that they are wimps,unable to hit strong shots with one hand but needing 2. This is like saying "I have a weak backhand so I have to use both hands." There is ofcourse the extra second needed to reach a backhand ball when fully stretched.
I find nothing more depressing than seeing coaches nursing and encouraging youngsters to use both hands. No woman player with a 2 hander backhand can remotely equal the grace of Henin-Hardenne. Apart from Mauresmo is there any other woman who is not 2-handed? Can't think of any. Federer's backhand down the line is a thing of beauty.
But I am biased. I play single hand backhand myself!
