Roger thinks Women's tennis players are sexy...

The Reporter kept on pressuring Roger... and I guess he got the answer he wanted... :rolleyes:

Q. In your opinion, as a group, are the men sexier than the women?

ROGER FEDERER: If we are sexier than the women?

Q. Yeah, as a group. As a group.

ROGER FEDERER: As a group?

Q. Yes.

ROGER FEDERER: I don't want to start a rivalry here, so... (Laughing.) I think it's the women who have to decide this and we have to make, like - how do you say - voting. Ask all the players. I don't want to answer this.

Q. The men can't sit on the fence there, Roger.


Q. You can't make a decision?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, if we are sexier than the women?

Q. You can't sit on the fence on this one.

ROGER FEDERER: How tough is this? I think women are sexier, so... Is that an answer or what? I don't know.

It's amazing to me that you never hear about reporters getting clonked in the head by a wayward tennis racket......

BTW, what does that interviewer mean with "sit on the fence"? Is that a special phrase or a special expression in English that cannot be literally translated and means something in particular?
I really don't understand that... anybody can explain me what this means? :confused: :confused:

It means he is neutral.

it means that you can't make up your mind about sth and that you prefer not to say one way or the other; you are being non-committal about sth and refraining fr making a decision!

lol, it must take a LOT of brain crunching to come up with such a stupid question.

Strictly speaking, he said they were sexier (than the men), not necessarily sexy in themselves... this isn't quite as funny as that reporter in Sydney who insisted on asking Hewitt about what the men could do to improve their sex appeal and got some rather short remarks in response (something along the lines of "You'd like that, would you mate?"). Classic.
