Top Seeds Make People's Sexiest List

Tennis Masters Cup top seeds Roger Federer and the Bryan brothers have both made the cut in People Magazine's annual Sexiest Man Alive issue.

ATP World No. 1 and two-time Masters Cup champion Federer was featured in the 'Sexy Surroundings' section. 'These Well-Known Guys Give Us A Tour Of Their Favorite Hot Spots,' the magazine cries.

Bob and Mike Bryan, the smouldering 28-year-old California brothers, made the Sexy Twins list.

That's so strange. Bob and Mike? I mean, tennis is just full of hotties, Marat being the premier one....but....the Bryans? I mean, I think they're cute in a we've-got-really-dorky-haircuts-but-don't-hold-that-against-us way. But to make the sexiest man issue is...um....especially when they could've chosen somebody seriously sexy like Marat.

You know they don't actually pick the best looking people for the issue they just pick people who are in the news. Like back when James Blake was a big story that's who they had. And Marat hasn't had a good year, plus I actually think his looks have deteriorated. He looks kind of haggard. I don't think Federer is typically attractive but I think he's grown into his looks in recent years.

I don't get this Sexiest Man Alive thing anyway. How can it change every year? If George Clooney is the sexiest man alive this year, what happened to the guy from last year? Did he suddenly lose some of his sexiness from last year, and George Clooney gained some from last year? It doesn't make sense to me. :shrug:

Johnny Groove
11-16-2006, 03:04 AM
Apparently there is a finite pool of sexiness, and it is constantly in a state of flux: flux into certain people and flux out of others.

Thankfully the folks at People have degrees in oceanography and the atmospheric sciences, so they are adept at tracking the bulk flow of sexy from one man to the next. It's all in the name of science. :drool:

I think Anna Wintour- the editor of Vogue - is smitten with Roger. He has had a big story, a small story, a feature in Men's Vogue, an editor's letter mention with pic, and now this spread about Roger in the past two and a half years.

As for the Bryan brothers...can appreciate that some may find them cute. But they don't really strike me as sexy at all. But different strokes for different folks. I have not aggreed with a number of People's pics over the past few years. I am still wondering why Takeski Kaneshiro has never been in the Most Beautiful issue when imo boring choices like Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are repeated over and over.

Seems People has expanded it over the years and now they have sexiest everything. Earlier this year I read Nadal was supposed to be featured in this issue but he turned them down because he thought he was to young to be considered "sexy". Not sure if that's really true or just a rumor.

Not that often – but not that infrequently. And it is rarer to find a male on his own in the magazine when he is not with a female celeb or model. You may have a feature with a celebrity couple, celebs in a movie together (like Reese and Joaquin Phoenix together for Walk the Line), someone like Diddy on his own, or sometimes a male celeb in a fashion layout- such as a good one with Pharrell and a model who I think was Giselle a bit back. Roger has been one of the more prominently featured male celebrities to be honest.

I agree, J'torian. Marat has beautiful sculpted cheekbones. Hiding them behind scruff is a crime. And I like long hair on some guys, but not Marat.

Although way back in the day, Sampras was featured in a Sassy spread on young hot athletes. This was around the time of his first USO win. Sampras said something along the lines of "now that I am having more success- there are starting to be groupies hanging around." Yech- time for brain bleach. (For those not familiar with Sassy, it was a teen mag in the late 1980s and early 1990s that prided itself as being the hipster mag- but was more often than not just insufferable.

Don't always agree with their choices, but I still buy this issue every single year since (ironically) George Clooney was first named the Sexiest Man Alive.

Clooney is sexy, but the Wentworth Miller is the sexiest man alive IMO. But since he's relatively unknown and won't sell a lot of magazines, he'll never be on that cover. Sigh.

Pleased to see Federer in that issue though. Gives me another reason to buy the magazine.

No, I don't know. It's a fun thing. We did the photo shoot in Basel back during the Swiss Indoors. I asked who was on the cover, they wouldn't tell me. Now I know. Wasn't me, but I'm happy to be once again in that elite group of sexy people, yeah.

I realize you don't have a high opinion of him, but surely you can admit that it's quite possible he was trying to be sarcastic or humorous. Just the wording alone would give you a clue that he's probably being facetious.

I have the highest opinion of him as tennis player.He is the best tennis player of all time.But he's constant pushing to be more then tennis player I don't understand .I actally think he belives hype about his sexy looks.And by the way what is elite group of sexy people, is that phrase exist

The Bryan Brothers?!?! Wow....Okay, tennis is a sport full of eye candy, and all they could muster was the Bryan twins? Don't get me wrong, sometimes I find them attractive, but not really People magazine worthy.

Where's Marat? He's (as Tursunov said) a two meter embodiment of the female dream. And he's very smart, he's one of the greatest tennis players of all time, he's unique, and he's exotic.

I can appreciate that the Bryan Brothers are cute. But they just are not sexy for me. People's choices are often a bit bland to me. (Don't mind Feds being on the list though) They often have folks that I can understand that they are cute and/or attractive, but that would never make the list that I have with my husband and make me wanna drop my drawers. They have folks a little too white bread and milk and not enough spice for my taste for the most part.
