Is Roger Federer Hot?

I have heard of people saying how "hot" and "popular" Andy Roddick is :confused: , yes, maybe Andy has the better looking gf, but could it be because Maria craves attention too?...
Point is, do you think Roger Federer is hot? He does have a nice body like Pete does, but both of them have rarely been called hot by others. (PS: the hottest #1 player in the world will always be Marat for me;))

Roger's tennis is hot.

As for your other point, I don't think Andy is dating Maria, it's all press feast.

Well i definitely don't think he's ugly...recently i think he's been getting better looking but i can't help but think that if roger wasn't one of the top tennis players would so many people consider him to be hot. (as someone else has already said, "his tennis is hot").

In my opinion, no.
Objectively speaking, Fed isn't so good looking because his nose is too big and his smile a bit nerdy (but very adorable).
The part of the reason I like Federer so much is that he looks like a guy next door.
I guess Sampras is a good looking guy, but to me he always looked too serious.
As for Roddick's publicized hotness, I've never been able to understand it.

Yes, I find him very hot :hearts:. I agree his nose is a bit big, but the upper half of his face is extremely hot. His eyes, eyebrows and hair are really hot. Another thing is his walk. I just love the way he walks. :)

I think Roger is handsome. He's gotten better looking with age, he also looks better with shorter hair.

I think he has a heavenly body. I like men with hair on their chest and tummy :drool: (except Sampras, he was too hairy for my liking) :)

There was a time when I thought "hot" would be the last word to describe Roger, but he's definitely improving in the hotness department. :) I like the shorter haircut a lot, it makes him look infinitely better.
btw according to me Stepanek is more beautifull than Roger
:eek: I couldn't disagree more.

I won't use handsome to describe him, but in person, yeah, he is farrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr more good-looking than on TV and muuuuuuuuuuch slimmer. He has a perfect figure and the combination of his eyes and eyebrows is just beautiful :yeah::hearts:

I think esp when he smiles, he looks so warm and adorable and cute. To me he is not extremely HOT, but desperately charming :hearts:

02-05-2006, 10:53 AM
As some people said, his tennis is hot, great, almost perfect. Then, the man, I have never seen Roger like a "hot" guy, he can be touching (I saw that at the AO ceremony) maybe, I'll change my mind if I see him in a couple tournaments this year, I won't forget to tell you :lol: I think I'm going to see him in a different eye now :lol: The most important is his tennis, we only ask him to play good tennis not to be a top model. You have players top model who are not in the top 5

Hmmm... I'm going to vote 'not'

but in the last month my opinion on him has changed so drastically that it is scaring me. This time last year I thought he was the ugliest guy on the planet and couldn't even look at him. Now I think he is pretty cute and has a nice personality and a lovely smile.... and he could move more into the 'hot' section by next time this question is asked :eek:

(and I know when some certain people read this they will almost faint from the shock :lol: )

I hope he won't let hair grow again that's awful.

From the moment I saw Roger I thought he was the hottest of all the male tennis players and that has never changed. I think everyone has different tastes. I thought Safin was hot when he won the USOpen but I don't think so any more about him. I think Safin looks worn out now.

Many women I know think Roger is very hot.....the hottest. Roddick may have looked hot when he was 20, but he's aged a bit and just looks ordinary now. However, maybe some find Roddick attractive because of his joking personality.

kasia
02-05-2006, 03:43 PM
NO!!!!!He's definetely not hot!!! He's horrible!! Really hot and sexy is Andy Roddick. And Mario Ancic.Ohhh....and of course Marat Safin.Lol

peteslamz
02-05-2006, 03:44 PM
For me, I do not think "Hot" is not the right word to describe his looks, maybe just good-looking guy. Thank God he had his haircut done and totally cut off that horrible triangular shaped of his, when he sometimes let his hair down. :eek: Roger looks good especially when he is wears suits! :D

Since he cut his hair, at least I can look at him :rolleyes: , but he´ll never be hot. It´s a question of taste, but this is what happens if I see a shirtless pic or just a pic of him :bolt:
I think in the average he has much more male fans than other players.

he is handsome all together

Roger is a sexy, exotic looking man with perfect hair,slim body and long limbs, not to mention his beautiful hands. I don't know why, but I always notice a man's hands! :)
He's stunning in person, especially when he smiled at me in Cincy. :cool:

Anyway some of the new people might want to vote on this poll...

For the record I think he's a good looking guy. Very nice eyes and smile.

Go down the bottom of the GM page, and at the left hand corner there are 'Display Options'. There are three scroll options, sort by, sort from, and order. The lowest one is 'sort from the' and usually I expect it would say 'Last Day'. Scroll through that and go to 'Beginning'. If you go to the last page, you see that you can get threads from way back in 2002! :D :)

And of course he's hot! ;)

People find success an aphrodisiac because it brings out a sort of primal magnistism...people who are successful also carry themselves in a unique demoner that makes them attractive regardless of physical apperance, like Boris Becker, Michael Douglas, Bono ..etc Roger falls into that category he's got a certain je ne sais quoi

I agree with that. I bet if Roger was No 50 very few would find him more than an ordinary-looking guy.

So, I am going to say No to the poll question. :)

But isn't his success an integral part of who he is? after all its his superior mental ability that made him No 1#! I took the 'hot' question not just down to physical but mental ability. If anything I'd put your mental ability above your physical appearance, remember gravity takes its hold and your left with your reputation

I assumed that the question about Roger's hotness refers to his physical appearance. I cannot judge Federer's 'mental abilities' without knowing him in person. Just because he is No1 and gives nice interviews doesn't mean he has superior mental ability. He is an athlete not a scientist.

Hotness doesn't necessarily have the same meaning to everybody. Kind of an eye of beholder. To somebody, a macho-like typical male showing off his muscular physic may be hot, but not to me. To me, a well-groomed man with a suit and white shirt looks much hotter. Roger, for that reason, is definitely HOT.

mental ability in his chosen profession, the fact that his game is so layered is an indication that his a thinker not just a power player...

I see what you mean, though for me that quality does not contribute to increased hotness and sex appeal but falls into the category of 'ability as a tennis player'.

He's hot, he's not pretty-kind of hot... but I think he's way hotter than Andy. Andy is sort of pretty, but I wouldn't call him hot.

Great eyes, hair (not the long hair, I didn't like that), forehead. His nose doesn't bother me at all, and a cute goofy-sheepish smile.

He's sort of a package deal, he's hot, he plays beautiful Tennis, he's in a solid relationship for a long time now, and with someone who isn't a modeal but a real person, and he cries beautifully when he wins. All around attractive qualities IMHO.

Sunset of Age
02-02-2007, 12:48 PM
Voted YES, HOT! of course.

It is, like so many already said before me, all in the eye of the beholder. What's HOT for one isn't for the other. I get the impression that Roger appeals to people with a more 'developed' taste - not just looking for the superficial 'prettiness', but indeed, for the whole package.

Roger isn't 'hot' in the popular meaning of the word - he isn't a boyband- posterboy, doesn't behave like as such (I've even seen him being called 'old' on some boards! :eek: ) and goes entirely his own way :worship: . In stead, he's handsome, acts like a real class act, has this sort of dorky aloofness around him - all of which I find very, very attractive.

Oh, and to take it all to a more carnal level :p - he has a BEAUTIFUL body. Broad shoulders and chest, slim waist, narrow hips, lovely legs. I usually am not so much into hairy men, but well... Rogelio sure is an exception to that rule!
In all: very, VERY HOT.

cmurray
02-02-2007, 12:49 PM
sometimes.

His facial features aren't quite right - eyes are too close together and too deep set, nose is too large, brows are too thick.

He is clearly a case of the whole being greater than the sum of his parts. His body is hot - he's very lean and graceful, and I dig that. Great hair, good sense of style (usually). And frankly, he looks rich. I'm not saying that women are golddiggers, but there is a certain....appeal to a guy who wears his wealth so comfortably.

So I would say definitely sexy, but not really good-looking. :shrug:

His features might not be perfect but thats the thing about him. And his amazing personality and effortles tennis make him EVEN HOTTER!
Hes ore handsome than hot though. Nadals more on the hot side while berdych and roddick for example are just cute

He is not hot in a model sense of the word.

Personally, I find that sort of hotness extremely boring and actually off-putting. Federer, on the other hand, looks very interesting, but that is probably due to his skills that amaze me.

So, the answer is: not, but doesn't matter, we love him anyway. :devil:

Super hot! Let's put it this way: he's only 1 of 2 celebrities that would be on my "would do" list. The other one is on my avatar of course. And it's not only his tennis that makes him hot. It's a combination of how he carries himself and also his physical appearance: nice skin, nice hair, nice jaw, nice eyes, nice lips, maybe not so nice nose (his only flaw), nice hands, nice body, nice legs, and I could go on. :drool:

Roger isn't the conventional hot. In my classification system, he would fall under handsome. Not hot, not cute, not pretty, not good looking, but handsome. He has great hair, a nice rich coloured skin, and his facial features seem odd when analyzed alone, but when they are all paired together, it works well. Also, he has a fit body. He doesn't have the washboard abs like other players do, but he is lean. Finally, the first thing I look for when it comes to a mans body, is his shoulders. Roger has nice broad shoulders that are essential for pulling off a well fitted suit.

SO overall, no, he's not "hot". He's much more than that.

Go down the bottom of the GM page, and at the left hand corner there are 'Display Options'. There are three scroll options, sort by, sort from, and order. The lowest one is 'sort from the' and usually I expect it would say 'Last Day'. Scroll through that and go to 'Beginning'. If you go to the last page, you see that you can get threads from way back in 2002! :D :)

And of course he's hot! ;)

Hey thanks so much for that!

Hot, definitely hot. Gorgeous skin and hair, goofy-cute, warm smile, broad shoulders, slim waist, great legs, attractive hands, and this aura of... something, power or confidence... that's a total turn-on.

So agree. Or as Scoobsuk (I think) said in a similar topic, 'grown up handsome'. Apologies in advance If I've referenced incorrectly.

My avatar pic reminds me of the famous Pirelli calendar shot from the seventies of the model (sans undies) hiking up her skirt. For the sake of art, I think Roger should do a companion shot...:angel:

Yep - I think he's grown-up handsome. Not "cute" - not boyish hot. Maybe not even conventionally attractive. But I find something about him very seductive. The sort of guy who wouldn't just screw you, he would seduce you - and he'd be pretty damn good at it, I think. And an animal in bed - very in tune with the giving and receiving of pleasure. Gluttonous, shameless, indulgent passion...imagine having those eyes locked on to you.

Roger isn't the conventional hot. In my classification system, he would fall under handsome. Not hot, not cute, not pretty, not good looking, but handsome. He has great hair, a nice rich coloured skin, and his facial features seem odd when analyzed alone, but when they are all paired together, it works well. Also, he has a fit body. He doesn't have the washboard abs like other players do, but he is lean. Finally, the first thing I look for when it comes to a mans body, is his shoulders.

Like a fine wine, Federer gets better looking as the years go by. Truly the shorter hair was a major step. But there is something very appealing about a man who carries himself as well as Federer. Obviously, he is very comfortable with himself and he projects this confidence so well in all areas of his public personna.

Hot? The definition of hot changes for me and while I would have said no a few years ago, I think he definitely tips the scale to Hot.

People find success an aphrodisiac because it brings out a sort of primal magnistism...people who are successful also carry themselves in a unique demoner that makes them attractive regardless of physical apperance, like Boris Becker, Michael Douglas, Bono ..etc Roger falls into that category he's got a certain je ne sais quoi

the list is incomplete: apart from the GREAT personality, he is rich, famous, successful and even has a charity! also, you can tell from his relationship with Mirka, that he is a loving man, and cares for his female companion - a dedicated man. so on top of all of those great qualities, he's man that will love you!

I would not consider him handsome, but he does have a quiet charisma on the court. He moves like a panther and I can see that as being appealing. I can't go as far as calling him "hot," though. I think he is a sharp dresser and has maximized his physical appeal by taking good care of his looks.

Having said this, I can see how some would find him attractive. It's a matter of personal taste...

Roger's tennis is hot.

As for your other point, I don't think Andy is dating Maria, it's all press feast.

Roddick is not dating anyone. Maria was a little publicity for him just like Mandy Moore was. Maria was in Djokovic's box at the USOpen.

It's all a matter of taste, and to me Roddick was never hot but Roger was/is always hot. Roger is hot in a suave, James Bond sort of way.

05-27-2009, 10:08 PM
You know, to be completely honest, when I first saw him, I was kind of, "He's... okay. ...I guess. Um." I didn't really know what to think of his looks; he's just so unconventionally pretty, it's strange. I can see why people don't find him attractive, if I looked at him objectively. But he also screams charisma, which is probably one of the reasons why I'm all :hearts: over him. Plus, he's got a totally endearing and charming dorky side, kind of like a little boy sometimes... so cute. :awww:

Hot? ...sometimes. When he's angry/annoyed, for instance. :angel: Or when he plays the air guitar and his shoulders stand out like crazy. :drool: His "c'mon"s more often than not also get me all fangirly.

Most of the time, though, I don't think of him as hot, but as ridiculously beautiful.

I was looking the old 3ds. What a cool 3d :lol:
Telling that Roger is hot is very reductive.
Yes of cource only one part of him is hot - so hot that it burns :devil:
He's so many things together...

He is the tennis and when he hits the ball and all his swing and his expression is like the Big Ban, is as any time new star is born.
A big explosion with a blinding light :inlove: :angel: :worship:

He is the sweetness in person - his smile is able to warm your heart and his eyes full of light are able to make you totally melt :inlove:
Sometimes he is shy - so cute and nice.
His dimples when he smiles are like an arrow at the heart.
Some times his eyes are full of the sweet melancholy of a dreamer other they are full of passion... and so so..but so many deep...
Deep like his warm and low senual voice. When he speaks you can close your eyes and let you go like on a sea wave that rocks you slowly and to completely lose yourself.
His prohibited hair can make you die by the desire to touch them softly....
...And his lips....OMG... when he smiles... when he's going to serve bites them...and when he is playn and so focussed he has parted lips...
His expression sometimes after hitting a great winnes is happy, othe is wild other is cute...
His hands...the elegance and how many sensaitones...

His body, the peRFest figure...that chest and the hairs that can be seen from the t-shirt.

It's better for my mental survival to stop now.
I don't know what this guy did to me but day by day I undertand few and few.
That fatal us open 2011...

He is the paradise and the hell.
If he was only hot all should be easyer...and from the hell you can escape...from the paradise not...
...And I would not have made a fool of myself.:sobbing::inlove:
But I need to scream out loud all the emotions that Roger gives to me!!!:yippee::crazy:

He's by far the cutest quy on the tour to me...but nobody and I mean nobody is hotter than Marat Safin. ....so in the tennis world, Marat,Fed, and the Djokovic for me..I happen to like tall thin dudes with dark hair although Marat's hair was mostly medium brown....


I guess i love what Fed stands for and the way he carries himself and that is what makes him HOT to me.

Even more - he's a DORK. :p

But guess what? the guy is charming. He's been true to his lady for over ten years. He's intelligent, friendly...

He's by far the cutest quy on the tour to me...but nobody and I mean nobody is hotter than Marat Safin.
:p I can agree on Marat but it's not enough to feel him the hottest. He is that "bad boy" beuty, sometimes cold, sometimes distant...He doesn't involve much more my imagination.



He's no 'beauty king'.
He's no 'Johnny Depp'.
He's no silly advertisements-whore.

A gree on that he at the 1st time you see him (nowadays) he isn't the top-model beuty, but he catches you, intrigues you, you find him interesting without knowing anything about him, he's mysterious and deep. He expresses so much sweetness http://img61.imageshack.us/img61/1289/little057og3.gif as wildness :devil: :fiery: :drool:.

He isn't an actor but at the end the tennis career, I see him as one of the best actors in Hollywood - he has the skills and would be able. http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/light_skin/girl_in_love.gif And he should be subborted by his warm and deep voice.

Even more - he's a DORK. :p
I'm not sure he is - he does it sometimes and this is so funny. Ok maybe when he starts laughing for hours he is, but I like too much this :angel:

...
But guess what? the guy is charming. He's been true to his lady for over ten years.
He's intelligent, friendly...

Yes and I admire this in him. To be honest I don't know too much for the inside person he is and this saves my sanity http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/mini/rofl_mini.gifMaybe I'll never want to discover a little part of this (when it happens accidentally I feel all the best and worst emotions in the world. So I prefere to know nothing more)...
Certainly not in this life...
This is the reason I'm afraid to watch hime live at a tournament.:lol:
I'm sure the temptation will prevail, and then what happens must happen, even if it's the end of the world ... :lol: :bounce: :bigcry: :banghead: :spit: :spit: :spit:

@Roamed - unfortunately I find him maybe hotter off the court when he is dressed normally.
How many thoughts :speakles: :sobbing: :banghead: ...

I'm not a woman and I can't say I know well about those things,

but I saw Federer playing live and I saw he had something special comparing to other players, I had a special impression "live" about the way he moves and also about his muscular strength :

someone said "a panther", that's exactly what reflects my impressions about his feline and strong movement, it's not only smooth, it's also strong. Also his hairy body enhanced this "feline" impression, I think.

That's also what I could feel looking at some dancers from Latin countries then that's why this impression can be associated with "hot" in my mind.

No other player I saw live gave me this "feline" impression although some other players gave me a good physical impression, esp. Djokovic whose thin calves impressed me, but it's something different, also he's a lean guy, not an impression of "muscular strength", it's something else. I didn't see Nadal live : I guess he's hot in another way from what I see on TV. I was much more impressed by Murray's game live than on TV, but not at all by his body :lol:

I thought Sampras had the same(probably not on clay though:o). But I saw Federer only life in rotterdam 99 against Kafelnikov, but his movement was impressive then allready. Sampras his movement in the 99 year end final was just waaay more impressive than on TV! And they are both hairy:angel:

yes I never saw Sampras live but on TV, he also gave that impression, maybe even more than Fed, then I can guess that :)

Also same height.

But Sampras looked maybe a little bit less strong physically than Roger.

I've neve seen them live but on TV Sampras seems very feline- like he moves on the court. In Federer's way to move I've seen more the elegance of the gazelle. Also when he hits - he doesn't give the idea of a muscolar shots. Maybe because he is leaner than Sampras and maybe he has the longer levers (arms and legs). However sometimes he has the feline. The expression and the hair more than how he moves and how he hits. Yes I find more feline the overhead shots of him.

It's thruth that he has the same muscolar control as the feline who has the soft paws untill the last moment before attacking the victim.
The same is for Roger that has the maximum muscle decontraction before and after hitting. So maybe live it's possible to see better this his capacity and how he discharges all the weight on the ball and how he attacks it... :inlove::speakles: (don't make mi think of this ... :hearts: :lick: :fiery:)

With the help of the guys of the tennis forum where I've been member and the Roger's examples of "how to do", I could adopt this method in playng and there were many positive imrovements... Maybe my level is too low because I've been back for few time and I make other mistakes of the body position and the foot work, but if not maybe my ball wuoldn't go to the net :lol:
This make you play without using the power, without getting tired and giving more speed to the ball because if you're "soft" you can accelerate. Of course soft before hitting and very fast with the arm when you hit.
My usual oponent is stronger than me but she uses the muscles to hit and his ball is slow... That's all.

Sampras was famous for his long arms, a lot of experts think that was part of his awesome serve. But yes Federer may be more like a gazelle, he makes more little steps, and is more precise in his movement. But Federer has also some catlike characteristics, his feet touching the courts really softly. Sampras made bigger steps but his movement was also very catlike.

03-30-2012, 11:31 AM
This of the steps is interesting. I dodn't yet realize that Pere had them bigger than Roger...
Of cource now I have some recorded match of the american but I don't watch him so often as Roger and so I don't remember the details but I have a general idea.
It's sure that Sampras was more explosive than Fed with the FH. And he had a big explosivity of smashing almost any time with a big jump.
Roger does it sometimes but for Pete it was usual.
Maybe when you see the feline run it makes big soft steps, so I see more the feline in Sampras - aybe the need to reach the net faster made him adopt this way of fotwork.

So coming back to our guy - his physical structure as appearance and shape is slimer and his arms and legs give the idea to be longer in proportion of the body.
But yes when Roger touches the court hi's feline. He has the paws.

I also had this impression on TV but live his legs looked more powerful to me. But he doesn't look "muscular", especially his shots don't look like that, they are very smooth, very fluid, something really special comparing to other players (only Murray was the second "special" player I noticed, way behind him but still special comparing to the others, including Djokovic, whose shots didn't look special to me both times I saw him). You know the way panthers or some other felines (not the fat lions or tigers, I mean :lol: ) look when they move, it's not "muscular", it's strong but very agile and smooth in the meantime. A gazelle is not strong enough. And I could more see this strength when he played, I think Youzhny for instance (I didn't see him live unfortunately but he's also the "smooth" kind of player on TV) looks less "strong".

How distant was he from you when you watched him play?
I think id he is too far you can't see well what you described.

:eek: Where did you see the legs? I mean when he runs or when he hits... Or maybe when he arrives on the ball after a long run? I've watched live a pro players many years ago in Davis so I don't remember. Now I can see guys in the Tennis club team and they play very well. So I can see their power when the usage of all the weight of the body on the ball and the speed and power of the arm. But now the legs have a long shorts and it's non easy to notice their work.
WOW - of course if I have Roger in front of me plaing I'm sure I couldn't resist and not looking well every part of his body.
I think before I see him all for good I would faint... But this isn't your problem :lol: You're happy to admire only the tennis player. What I wanted and did for a long time :lol:

Sometimes when I watch videos from the practice I can perceive this power which you speak about and in fact there he seems to be more feline.
I've watched that videos several mounth ago when I was forbidding me to look at the guy and only at the tennis player to learn some more of how to hit better. I don't know if I watch them now :drool::banghead: :eek: :hearts: I just know how he gets on the ball and how he attacks it but feeling it by miself would be too much for me.
It's so stange and it's not connected to my attraction to the guy - it's 100% of tennis love - sometimes when I hit well I feel exacly the ball and any part of the swing and I feel like he hits.. othe times when I watch him on the TV and he hits I feel as I'm hitting, At that moment I feel as hitting the ball as feeling the ball. What a sensation :inlove:

second time I went to Bercy I had a very good position, behind the court, maybe 10 meters from the court, and low.

Anyway yes I could see their legs better than on TV, including Djokovic's thin and beautiful calves, Murray's mark on his calf (since then I could also see it on TV but I hadn't noticed before) ...

The main difference imo between seeing players live and on TV is that you can really appreciate the "vertical" movement of the ball, the trajectory over the net, how low it is ... on TV it's hard to appreciate.

Generally you have a better appreciation of the movement.

And you have a better appreciation of the players' body : for instance I noticed that most of the players look taller live than on TV, long legs, including David Ferrer for instance who also always hips on his feet, which makes it more impressive. Even Davydenko looked taller to me. Also because they're all lean, including Isner for instance who looks better proportionate live than on TV.

PS : there was a lottery before the match, and the ones who won could be placed just behind the players' chairs for the match, I thought that way it would be possible to smell Fed, may be a hot thought for some ;)

Interesting :D I wonder how Dimitrov has felt about all that : I could read he got very inspired by watching Fed and he even imitates the way he turns his racket in his hand before the return of serve :eek:

sometimes I can also feel as if I hit the ball myself when he plays on TV :o

I don't know when Dimitrov started if was imitating Federer or he has a similar style of play. I know a boy who hits similar as Dkokovic but I think it's simply his style.

So... about me is not imitating nobody. As I play I tray to get all the best from the PRO's.
So I watch many of their slow motion videos to find the timing and the swiond. All this is done into a tennis forum and we exchange our experience and who is better gives us some advises and of course Federer is the best example.

There have been maybe hal a year that sometimes when I hit well - so when I have a good footwork and researching of the ball + the best timing I feel that I'm going to hit and I know exactly that the shot is perfect and I know that the ball is going to touch exactly where I think.
I don't know how long have you played but to me happenes to base may game on the sensationes.
So that I described is different of imitating. Yes - I get the ideas of HOW TO... but sometime I have the sesation to hit like Federer. If you want the bad example... when I hit badly because I'm in a very defensive position and I can't hit in the best way, sometimes I feel of hitting like Nadal. For example I'm still improving my BH slice but when I'm able to hit it well I unconsciously feel of hitting it like Federer (maybe of the too much times I have sen him plaing it).. but when I can't find the best position on the ball I feel that I'm hitting it in a sh*t way as Nadal does... So I can't observe any detail of theyr execution of the shots and so oter times It happenes to hit in a "strange" way and think - no - it's wrong and maybe I see it done in the same way by some PRO.
And the 3rd situatio is - it heppenes only with Roger :inlove: - as I have felt before to hit as him (felt no realy hit as him) in some shots when he hits in a fraction of a second I'm really feeling as I'm making the swing and I'm hitting the ball. It's a very short feeling.

Of course as I have the 2HBH it's excluded.


he even imitates the way he turns his racket in his hand before the return of serve :eek:

I don't know - he does it in a differet way - with a different tecnuque.
I do it as well. But when I started doing it Roger was playing his 1st tournaments. :p and in that time I din't go to Basel :lol:
I was surely inspired by some PRO in that time... so kids learn all that dork tricks and start doing them.
After you do it without thinking of it.

I read a Dimitrov-quote somewhere, saying that he had watched a lot Federer play and been inspired, probably like what you describe "I watch many of their slow motion videos to find the timing and the swing"

I don't know when he did that exactly, neither the evolution of his game and that real impact of Fed's influence, I would be interested actually.

Ok - I was so lucky to have him into 2-3 meters and all is like you describe it. He has an impressive footwork and swing when he hits the ball...

Of cource there is much more to tell that confermes the title of the 3d as an affirmation and not as a question.
I still can't stop thinking of that moments... of his charm and sensuality. His hairs are killing and no way to describe how awesome is his strong body. BTW he is much more tall as he seems on tv.

If before I could hope to recover from the illness called Roger, now there are no chances.

Happy for you I saw you could watch him a lot this week :) : it will be great memories, we need these pictures in our mind for when we and he get old :D

I can tell you : I've followed tennis since the beginning of the 80s, and I don't think we'll see someone else as beautiful in everything as Roger :cool:
