Roger to be named to People Magazine's 50 most-beautiful list!!

I had to post this in it's own thread because it's so cool! Has any other tennis player besides Marat Safin made this list?

Oh, and I can't wait to see these interviews! Sounds like Roger really opened up!

On this occasion, a few days before he would begin defense of his U.S. Open title, he wanted to open himself up in a way that is unique for any top athlete. Inviting a small group of reporters - one each from The Associated Press, CBS, Time, People (he will soon be named to People`s 50 most-beautiful list) and a new avant-garde magazine, Flaunt - Federer talked about tennis and what makes him tick when he`s not playing.

Well at least he's getting some media attention in the States. Someone posted on Roger's site that they heard on the radio that everyone was trying to get in and see him practice today, and one kid even slightly injured himself climbing over a tree or something.

That's nice.....and it's about time. I think Roddick, Blake, and Moya have all made that list before.

Roger Forever !

I guess many are slow to catch on. I hope that PMac and other ESPN idiots will realize that Roger is THE ONE !

Roger Forever !

Really? I remember James Blake, but are you sure Andy did? What's odd is the 2005 list came out earlier this year. So maybe Roger's going to be on the 2006 list? Or maybe there was some other reason he was interviewed by People magazine? I know they also have a "most intriguing" list too.

I don't think the ESPN crew are the ones to pick on. They all like Roger v. much. Yeah, when he was on holiday they latched on to Nadal, but I've listend to the entire ESPN crew of commentators this year and they all love Roger. In fact I think there are very few who don't like Roger. But since he chooses not to hawk cars or cameras on TV, or endorse everything under the sun he's not going to be as well known. But that's OK. I'd rather have him know for his great tennis anyway. This other crap is just a distraction anyway.

This was a long time ago before Andy won the US Open....but I can't remember if it was most beautiful or maybe it was sexiest guys or something like that.

Roger Forever !

Some of them are two faced. They act like they love Roger when he's playing and then as soon as Nadal is playing they act like he's the next #1 and Roger is done. As I read him, PMac would love for Roger to fall flat on his face. Cliff seems more genuine to me.

Roger Forever !

Nah, I don't think so. It's just when Roger isn't playing they're going to talk up whoever is playing. When Andy won DC then he was the favorite on hard courts, when Rafa won Montreal all of a sudden he's gonna dominate on hc. Now since Roger won Cincy he's the favorite again. I like how he has a knack of winning the tournament leading up to a slam (Kyoong before AO, Hamburg before RG, Halle before Wimbledon and now Cincy before USO - I'm not counting Pilot Pen since most of the top players aren't competing), so he's the one everybody is talking about going into the tournament. He's off for six weeks and then boom comes back and wins the first tournament he plays in.

Yes, they've (espn crew) really gotten into trying to sell whoever. Choke, vomit. But if you listen to their tone of voice, you can tell the diff. between when they're hyping a player vs. having real feelings for Roger. They appreciate that watching Roger is like being paid to be an art critic - awe, swooning, magnificence; whereas Thugs gets the guys hormones revved up. PMac has repeatedly said that he always wants to see Roger play, no matter what & that he'd pay anything to do so.

What's really obvious is Gilbert's pimping of Nadal right now. Nothing against Rafa, but it just seems so phony and like Gilbert's just jumping on the bandwagon. Rafa wins one hc tournament and Gilbert's talking about how he's gonna win a lot of tms on hc. The worst though was when one of the commentators on Star Sports said Roger and Rafa would have to play in the finals of Cincy to determine who was the best on hc. :retard: I guess they've forgotten about all the hc titles Roger's won in the last 1-2 years compared to Rafa's 1 title.
