    I actually do know him and he's a fine actor, but I just don't think he looks even remotely close enough like Federer to play him. Same with Vijaykanth playing Murray...

    It sounds like Sunny Deol's hair must be making him quite a wealthy man. I wonder if he insures his shoulder whiskers like famous athletes insure their body parts. :)

    I can believe his popularity though. 90% of the people don't even know what they like and they just follow the trend. Then when somebody better comes along and dethrones their false deity they become irrational and angry. :)

    Not to mention dead......(RIP Patrick Swayze)

    I agree, that's why I put actors there for both current as old versions of the older players. Viggo Mortensen might be able to pull off a young Borg though, since Borg looked kinda old anyway and a beard helps Mortensen look young-ish...

    Leander Paes (who has already starred in one movie) should play the role of Mahesh Bhupathi.

    Don't know about Nadal, but the Djokovic similarity is a little more convincing

    Yeah, no.

    Joaquin Phoenix is reserved for Gilles Simon.

    False. No one wants to play Gilles Simon...Not even Gilles Simon wants to be Gilles Simon.

    I feel that if Johnny Mac was to be in a comedic movie, Will Ferrell would pull it off pretty well.
