I mean I can understand why some of his features would put people off (normally I don't like square jaws myself), but if there's one thing he is, it is special.

His jawline is probably his best feature.

It is probably the most obvious but I beg to differ, to me his best features are his eyes and his hair. Most beautiful green eyes in tennis. And only he can challenge Roger in terms of hair (which almost makes up for their H2H but not quite lol )

And because I am an academic, I'm going to back this up with photographic evidence.

So eyes



And hair (OK he has shorter hair now but everyone makes mistakes )

That's entirely a matter of taste, to me Rafa is not particularly handsome, and not half as charming as Ferrer. Though he does have a very cute smile and when he has his "shy" manner he can be very cute (but Ferrer has both these things, too )

Ok sorry to say it but Ferrer has the personality of a safety pin. He has gorgeous eyes and a sweet smile, but he's really dull as a person, zero charisma. In a way Nadal is like him. So that in my eyes makes them quite less attractive.

Well, my opinion would be that he's dull only to the people who cannot see or did not look well enough. Ferrer is clever, he has a sharp mind, he loves reading, he is a very interesting person in my opinion. I'm sure he has a lot more conversation than most other players (at least, the type of conversation I would be interested in, which may not be the same as other people). The fact that he doesn't like clowning around or that he is a bit shy and very down-to-earth doesn't make him boring.

Actually, I think the fact that personalities like his are often considered as boring in today's society is very sad. Nowadays, having a personality seems to be linked with being an attention seeker. You always have to pretend that you are "fun" and "cool" and so on, or else, you are called boring. But to me, having real personality means being able not to care about all this social conformism. This is what I like in Ferrer, he's comfortable with himself, not pretending to be what he isn't, and he doesn't seem to care much about what other people think.
For instance, in today's society you will always be considered "cool" if you give the impression of doing everything with ease, of not caring much about things... Ferrer is the opposite of that, he is obviously a hard worker, very serious about what he's doing, and nowadays that's considered "uncool" but apparently he doesn't give a damn, and he does not try to counterbalance this image or change it.

And I really think he has a lot of charisma. A different type of charisma from Djokovic's (which I also appreciate because it makes me laugh, but it's not the kind of charisma that is appealing to me) or Nadal's (I think Nadal definitely has charisma and personality... he's got some powerful sarcastic humour - by the way, he has a COMPLETELY different personality from Ferrer in my opinion).

It's mostly because he can't express himself very well in English, which makes him seem boring and shy.

You can see the difference when he steps on a tennis court, when he is completely in his element, and I'm sure he's a lot more eloquent and interesting when he speaks Spanish.

Default Re: The best looking current player?

On MTF, players are defined as having a personality bcos they behave badly on court, throw tantrums, being rude, have big celebration after winners/wins...
which I understand, we fans don't really get to know the players personally, and lot of times we only get to see them on court, there's no other way to determine their personalities but the little that we got to see on court. So as shallow as that perception is based on, it is the only way.

Anyhow, IMO good looking is refer to their features, and hot is adding their personality/demeanor to the mix. Ferrer IMO is a very good looking guy, while as Nole is just so so but he's very charming, that makes him hot.

Of course I don't pretend to know these players or even want to know them, it's just the impression they give on tv, in interviews, etc.
And no, charisma has nothing to do with being funny.

One of my favourite videos ever! (and not because they are in their underwear )
Probably right after the Rafa/Fed uncontrollable laughter.

And yes, Rafa is very funny too. I think watching some videos of Rafa being funny in press conferences has done much to make me stop hating him. I really didn't like him before, now I don't mind him. And though I don't find him attractive, I sometimes find him cute and/or funny.

Hehe I think his English is actually extremely entertaining. Based on other comments I've seen on Twitter and elsewhere, I'm not the only one
But it's true that understanding Spanish probably helps. One thing I've noticed already is how he writes in Spanish on Twitter: sure, he writes nothing fancy, but he writes so much better than most other players. Some players are barely understandable when they tweet.

I don't find his attitude on court that attractive, though. You can tell he's got huge strength of character, and so on, that's admirable. But I really find his off-court persona a lot more attractive (just like his off-court appearance vs his on-court appearance).

I don't really get the sexyness of sticking his tongue out while playing, though, I have to admit

See, the French get it, as do a lot of Russians and Italians.

Some desirable qualities you mentioned:

1) Strong silent type - check
2) Capable of appreciating beauty in the world - check
3) Very sensitive but has learned to conceal the joy/angst which afflicts all poets - check
4) Probably visits internet forums incognito as an outlet for his repression.

I'm glad you are a deep and wise woman. All that glitters is not gold.
