Nah, it would be that "guy", and I use that term lightly with the pink shirt which exposes his shoulder blades......

Nadal attracts too many ladies, that may be too much competition for gays.

Totally fair poll question, esp. considering all the hetero-oriented polls on here.

Don't know for sure, but I do know some of my gay friends (who know virtually nothing about tennis) do know who Roddick is and said he was on the "hot list" or something.

What is your desire to know what homosexuals do or like:confused: You know, I'd agree with ya here if you felt the same way about not caring about "what heterosexuals do or like." But I'm guessing you don't pop into the 200 threads about Golovin and Sharapova and complain there.

I would just like to see fewer threads overall about "who's hot" and "Fed vs. Nadal: 2050," but I doubt those will be subsiding any time soon.

At least this a "new" thread topic for this forum . . .

You are obviously missing my point. The other examples you use are typically responded to by heterosexuals which make up anywhere from 95%-98% of the population. For someone to start a thread wondering what homosexuals think regarding their choice of tennis pros to follow seems very odd. Unless of course the OP is a homosexual and would like to see what other homosexuals are thinking.:rolleyes: WHA???
I'm pretty sure there are some gay fans on this board, so what's the problem with having a thread for them to respond? And what's so weird about non-gay folks weighing in on the question, especially since many of us (gay or not) have gay friends?

You're right: I am missing your point.

Well I think Amelie, Lisa Raymond, Martina Navratilova, Renee Stubbs, Samantha Stousr are popular with lesbians. And for the gay males Roger Federer is probably the most popular. Federer has an elegance to him and his afraid of fashion or style.

I don't see what is so strange about it. You need to get out more apparently. As people have said, we have silly polls for what guys girls think are hot, what girls guys think are hot and now this one. I guess the lesbian one is next, but I think there have actually been a few of those threads already as well.

Speaking up for the gay guys, I'll say that the favorite ones are probably Haas (since the haircut), Safin (also with the haircut), Roddick and I guess Nadal, though I can't really see that one. Keifer used to be extremely popular, but he got a little too skinny and also started acting like a jerk, so he's off the list.

I still don't know when Hingis got so hard up she had to go there. He must have something going for him. Nice personalilty as they say.

On another note ...Fed is the ugliest #1 in the history of tennis. I don't think he could attract a moose. On the other hand nadal has the best body of any tennis layer therefore...nadal wins because women and gays would be more attracted to him.

I was always wondering way so many people are crazy about Roddick. He's not exactly good looking or handsome, but what you say does make sense.
Safin is handsome, but I think it's more a look which attracts females and not gay men but I might be wrong.
I have a friend I hit with from time to time and he actually likes the looks of Dima and Robredo (when he had still short hair), but of course this is a subjective preference and doesn't say much. ;)

07-26-2006, 03:38 PM
Oh good, well here's one that I can definitely answer, myself being gay and am from the USA (put this in because there isn't one American on my list). And this is strictly looks, absolutely nothing to do with playing performance. And has nothing to do with personality. These are the 5 I like best.

1. Tim Henman - Is Clean cut and to me has been one of the most handsome people on tour. Also has the boyish look while being mature. He's only 4 years younger then me and have thought he was handsome from a teenager up through now.

2. Lleyton Hewitt - Blonde/Brown hair, blue eyes, and will probably have the boyish face for quite a while.

3. Richard Gasquet - Opposite of the first two (though he's the youngest of these 3), face is more mature, darker hair and eyes.

4. Xavier Malisse - Very mature looking, great face. Actually looks good with long hair when pulled back. Not to sure about the facial hair (whatever they call it when it's just the chin), I think that needs to go

5. Guillermo Coria -Great face, does need to keep his hair short to be on the list.

If older players can be considered. Put Stefan Edberg in at number 2 and bump everyone else down 1.

Looked at the link someone put up with the rainbow network. Can't believe that Becker, Agassi, Sampras, Rusedski and Federer are on this list. I mean Rusedski, please (BARF). And Becker (Close to Barf). Roddick is the closest to an American making my list (but he's still way down on the list). Federer is a brilliant tennis player, but playboy looks, Nope. Nadal does look good, but only when the hair is wet and the headband is on.

07-26-2006, 04:35 PM
I would think just like any group of people, it's pretty subjective. Some people like some, some like the looks of others. I can see the great appeal of Becker, he has a certain sort of confidence or something that obviously women also like since they have sex with him in broom closets. Malisse on the other hand, has a huge triangle head and looks like an alien to me, and not a nice looking one. Pretty game, but that all that is good looking about him. And he seems like a complete nut job on top of that, and that isn't appealing to me.

I don't say gays don't like the looks of Safin, but from what I've heard and read - many gay man don't consider Safin the best looking guy or the one they want to make out with first, where as way more females are attracted by his looks. Of course that proves nothing, it's just an observation I made.

Transcript.

RA - He's super small but he is a big one. He was like that of being the number 1, he does not want to recognize it. He continues fighting for his dream, is Rafa Nadal that is here with us.
RA - What's up Rafa? How you do?
RN - All good.
RA - There is some moment where Rafa Nadal is afraid and is wrinkled?
RN - Fear of what?
RA - Front, for example, to Federer?
RN - Well, I believe that fear not , respect more than fear.
RA - And does the fact of losing, it makes a terrible down to you or you think colder?
RN - Almost always I accept quite good the defeats.
RA - You don't break, you don't insult?
RN - Not I haven't thrown a racket to the ground at all, ever. I have never insulted anybody. i don't even shout.
RA - There is some part of this big body that does not have muscles?
RN - Always the people believe that I work very much at the gym, lift weights, all these things. But the truth that not, I don't do many things.
RA - Do you feel? Pardon! (Laughs) It is fine. It's Rafa's grandfather who is talking a bit. It is that before other persons were doing an interview.
RA - Rafa, do you have obsessions?
RN - Evidently, yes
RA - I know one that you are extracting all the time the trousers of your butt.

RA-You have no idea.
RN-No

Part 2 .

Ronnie Arias: When you were a ball boy who did you dream of being like?
Rafa: I've always liked sport... I played football... I played tennis... I went in for all sports..... up until now (nervous selfconscious laugh) things have turned out pretty well for me in tennis.... but I've never had an idol I fixed on or anything like that... I've always tried to do my own thing and enjoy myself doing it, which is the most important thing when you are young, and that's where it all begins, isn't it?

R.A.: You started out as "the nephew of" and now your uncle is "the uncle of"...
Rafa: It's another sport altogether. He was a good player. But, in any case, I'm a different person. I don't think it (the comparison) is good for either of us.

R.A.: We've brought along a series of implements to see what Rafa Nadal's technique is like. (Produces huge bag and takes two table tennis bats out of it) Given my level and my height, this will ....
How do you hold the racquet? (Rafa takes the bat and stands up dwarfing Ronnie) Look what a big guy he is!!.... Now let's... Do you use your left hand for everything?
Rafa: No, just for playing tennis!.... How do you want me to hit it? Backhand? For that I use both hands... (big grin) and they just don't fit on here (the bat is quite lost in his hands!)
R.A.: EVERYTHING about him is SO ENORMOUS!!.

R.A.: Tell me, have you ever bitten the dust?
Rafa: (big grin) Well, I've fallen over lots of times but I don't think I've bitten the dust yet!

R.A.: Back in the studio, I've got two (female colleagues) that are in love with you. Could you autograph one of the bats for Llum and one for Nuria. They're both dying with love for you! .... For Nuria first... you know she's just about to have a baby and has a real bump... and the other for Llum, who's the youngest.... I don't mean to be vulgar, but could you autograph these balls for me too?!... (Holds up signed bats to camera) Here you are girls!

R.A.: What's the strangest thing you've ever been asked to sign your autograph on?
Rafa: I don't know... I've signed cellulars, shoes...
R.A.: Have you got anybody's autograph?
Rafa: Yes, I've got Raul's, Ronaldhino's... Torres'. I'd never ask anyone for an autograph on a piece of paper or anything like that... but if I have their shirt and if they'll autograph it and write a dedication to me, I'm thrilled.

R.A.: What would really thrill me is to see if it's true you have one arm bigger than the other! (produces tape measure)
Rafa: Of course I have!
R.A.: (To camera, stroking Rafa's arm) Nuria, Llum, this is something you're never ever going to have... (giggles) nor me either!! :o (Proceeds to measure Rafa's left bicep) I can't reach round it! ... 40cm! ... and the other one? Here we go... 32!

R.A.: Well, as we've put you to so much trouble, we've brought you a present! (produces a small blue dumbbell)... It's just the one arm that needs it, so get working like crazy on that right arm!

Ronnie finished up by thanking Rafa, "el numero uno".

Back in the studio, Ronnie handed over the autographed bats and ball to his delighted colleagues and remarked on how marvellous Rafa's skin is - both in colour and texture....

RA - And does the fact of losing, it makes a terrible down to you or you think colder?
RN - Almost always I accept quite good the defeats.
RA - You don't break, you don't insult?
RN - Not I haven't thrown a racket to the ground at all, ever. I have never insulted anybody. i don't even shout.
RA - There is some part of this big body that does not have muscles?
RN - Always the people believe that I work very much at the gym, lift weights, all these things. But the truth that not, I don't do many things.
RA - Do you feel? Pardon! (Laughs) It is fine. It's Rafa's grandfather who is talking a bit. It is that before other persons were doing an interview.
RA - Rafa, do you have obsessions?
RN - Evidently, yes
RA - I know one that you are extracting all the time the trousers of your butt.
RN - Yes, the truth that I do it but when I am inside the track, no.
RA - For the perspiration?
RN - I do It, don't know, because since small child always I have done it, for the sweat, for everything.
RA - Let's speak about tennis players. For example I throw a name to you and you tell me what you think. OK?
RA - Federer?
RN - I Suppose that one of the best of the history.
RA - Vilas?
RN - A reference in the world of the tennis.
RA - Arantxa?
RN - Arantxa, I believe that the best tennis players of the Spanish history. She made that the whole world vibrated with her.
RA - Monica?
RN: Monica Seles? She's really loud.(giggles from Rafa and RA) I only knew her of her first epoch. She was shouting a lot
RA: you have to explain..it sounds like you're talking about sex
RN: when she hits the ball, she's loud...(smiles) I wouldn't know about the other thing
RA-You have no idea.
RN-No

Part 2 .

Ronnie Arias: When you were a ball boy who did you dream of being like?
Rafa: I've always liked sport... I played football... I played tennis... I went in for all sports..... up until now (nervous selfconscious laugh) things have turned out pretty well for me in tennis.... but I've never had an idol I fixed on or anything like that... I've always tried to do my own thing and enjoy myself doing it, which is the most important thing when you are young, and that's where it all begins, isn't it?

R.A.: You started out as "the nephew of" and now your uncle is "the uncle of"...
Rafa: It's another sport altogether. He was a good player. But, in any case, I'm a different person. I don't think it (the comparison) is good for either of us.

R.A.: We've brought along a series of implements to see what Rafa Nadal's technique is like. (Produces huge bag and takes two table tennis bats out of it) Given my level and my height, this will ....
How do you hold the racquet? (Rafa takes the bat and stands up dwarfing Ronnie) Look what a big guy he is!!.... Now let's... Do you use your left hand for everything?
Rafa: No, just for playing tennis!.... How do you want me to hit it? Backhand? For that I use both hands... (big grin) and they just don't fit on here (the bat is quite lost in his hands!)
R.A.: EVERYTHING about him is SO ENORMOUS!!.

R.A.: Tell me, have you ever bitten the dust?
Rafa: (big grin) Well, I've fallen over lots of times but I don't think I've bitten the dust yet!

R.A.: Back in the studio, I've got two (female colleagues) that are in love with you. Could you autograph one of the bats for Llum and one for Nuria. They're both dying with love for you! .... For Nuria first... you know she's just about to have a baby and has a real bump... and the other for Llum, who's the youngest.... I don't mean to be vulgar, but could you autograph these balls for me too?!... (Holds up signed bats to camera) Here you are girls!

R.A.: What's the strangest thing you've ever been asked to sign your autograph on?
Rafa: I don't know... I've signed cellulars, shoes...
R.A.: Have you got anybody's autograph?
Rafa: Yes, I've got Raul's, Ronaldhino's... Torres'. I'd never ask anyone for an autograph on a piece of paper or anything like that... but if I have their shirt and if they'll autograph it and write a dedication to me, I'm thrilled.

R.A.: What would really thrill me is to see if it's true you have one arm bigger than the other! (produces tape measure)
Rafa: Of course I have!
R.A.: (To camera, stroking Rafa's arm) Nuria, Llum, this is something you're never ever going to have... (giggles) nor me either!! :o (Proceeds to measure Rafa's left bicep) I can't reach round it! ... 40cm! ... and the other one? Here we go... 32!

R.A.: Well, as we've put you to so much trouble, we've brought you a present! (produces a small blue dumbbell)... It's just the one arm that needs it, so get working like crazy on that right arm!

Ronnie finished up by thanking Rafa, "el numero uno".

Back in the studio, Ronnie handed over the autographed bats and ball to his delighted colleagues and remarked on how marvellous Rafa's skin is - both in colour and texture....

that presenter is definately a freak...
if i was nadal i'd not sit through that sitting

Yeah, and Howard Stern asks every woman on his show to take off her top. And most of them do. Just goes to show that they are always those kinds of shock sort of hosts, gay and straight. Though I don't know of any gay ones as trashy as Howard Stern.

Safin is hot but suprisingly, not lots have mentioned anything about Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Nadal is getting hotter as he gets older.

Roddick is too over-rated in my opinion, so no offence to all A-Rod's fans.

Dude. Just because a guy wore a hideous pink shirt doesn't mean that gay people want to crawl all over him. I can't believe how many people suggested Hrbaty in this thread.

I wonder why gay guys wouldn't have the hots for Safin! He's def a good looking guy...even all the straight guys on this forum will admit that.

Only reason Safin wasn't on my list is because his hair is usually a mess. Too much of it, better if he cut it. Especially in one of the recent pictures where a small amount was a put in an elastic near the top of the head. I nicknamed it the sumo wrestler look.

I agree with you presenter was a freak, and Nadal should have just left. And the public wonders why tennis players, heck any sport athlete hates doing interviews.

If I had been Nadal, I'd punch the presenter out as soon as my arm got stroked.

Malisse reminds me of Mauresmo when he has his hair back.

It disgusts me (and I quote Martina, Mauresmo is half a man).

Okay. If you'd bother to read the whole thread, you'd know that his name is Andreas Haider-Maurer. I do believe it's been stated about three times.

er . . . no . . . i meant his REAL bank account. his chequebook, his moolah, his benjamins . . . which i would imagine is a helluvalot bigger than his male organ (which won't pay the bills).
