    He looks 42? Are you kidding? I'm sure many 42 year olds wish they looked like him. You must be 12 if you think he looks that old.

    I remember when I joined RF.com like 7 years ago. I never logged back on because the demographic was like 90% middle-aged women who treated Roger like he was their son. Nothing against them, but I didn't fit in. lol.

    Exactly.

    Roger (and seriously, that name don't help) doesn't seem to provoke any sexual lust from females, instead he gets a lot of 'motherly' sort of affection from women in their 50's who wish their sons were as successful, well-behaved, gentlemanly and well turned-out as him.

    The man your mother wanted you to be is never the man that women lust after - Federer is proof of that.

    Well, that is just one particular fanzone I'm talking about. Federer's has only like 300,000 members on his website and 11 million or something on his facebook.

    Anyways, check out some of those horrific lindt ads Federer did on youtube. They make me cringe, but the comment section is filled with people lusting over him.

    Yeah, and they're all 50 year old women with sons who have some weird Freudian sort of surrogate/lust thing going on.

    They're not actually hot 20-30 year old horny girls like the sort that Nadal gets screaming after him.

    Please, do yourself a favor and try not to give us faux-insights about psychology. Being an archetypical fratboy is your ideal persona.

    If you want some Nadal hotties, check this out.

    What do you think? Those are some attractive young women

    I think straight women probably like Federer because they think he's a nice guy they can have him though he's not as sexually attractive appealing as Nadal. Federer isn't that masculine either this is a guy who cries when he loses grand slam finals. I know for a fact in the gay male community most gay guys prefer Nadal and Djokovic over Federer. Federer is kind of soft and effeminate.

    That's profound.

    Rafa is the biggest 26 year old momma's boy alive, so if he does have more women lusting after him, it's due to looks and personality, not some sort of bad boy image.

    I wish the female version of the "guys only" thread for posting hot photos and gushing wasn't always buried somewhere. I'm not ashamed to admit a factor in my tennis fandom is appreciating the men on my screen for more than their tennis. I'm not nearly as attracted to Roger as I am Djokovic and Nadal...you know that date, ****, or marry game? Roger would get the marry for me. He seems like the kind of guy you settle down with not the kind of guy you have a little mindless *fun* with.

    Some do, some don't. Different folks, different (ground)strokes.

    Here's how I'd rank them:

    Top 4
    Djokovic: Decent-looking
    Federer: Average
    Nadal: Average
    Murray: Needs hood and/or grocery sack over head

    The hottest are Simon and Tomic, though they have bad personalities. (But who cares about that?* :) )



    * OK, Tsonga has the best personality

    He does look older than 31 and does look closer to 40 imo. Tennis players on average do not age well because of all of the sun exposure.

    Best hair in tennis though. :)

    Sorry, but you have no idea what you are talking about. :confused: If you think the most successful professional tennis player of all time, the most elegant guy on the men's tour, with the best hair does not elicit sexual lust from many females you need a reality check. :)

    It's good to see the universal Murray love crossing over into the gay community.

    You think so? I have no clue about estimating ages. I have seen 30 year olds who look much younger than Roger and some that look much older than him. I'll take your word for it :)

    I have to say that Federer looks younger now ( on-court at least) than his ponytail days.

    You can't generalize - people can look at Fed and see different things.

    For me I find him much more masculine-looking than Nadal: stronger features, broader shoulders, more body hair, deeper voice. Nadal is kinda "pretty" in a feminine way for me which prevents him from being sexy. Obviously there are people who see this in a totally different way.

    As for Fed's "effeminate side" sure it's there; but there's also the an aggressive bad-ass side which you sometimes see on court.

    Fed's capable of projecting wildly different emotional states, which makes him complicated and therefore IMO sexy.

    Chacun a son gout.

    As I've said before, I think Federer could pass for early 40s. He's really aged his skin with all the tanning. Sometime in either 2007 or 2008, he became obsessed with tanning, and I'm not sure why. Maybe he was getting sunburns regularly or something, or was sick of applying sun screen.

    As for whether or not women find him attractive...do women find any guys attractive? They lie so much about everything there's no way of knowing whether they're saying what they think they want, or what they actually want. They always have to pretend to be noble and deep and non-superficial.

    The fact that there seems to be such a wide range of what women claim to find "attractive" suggests that they're talking out their ass when they discuss men's looks.

    His skin has definitely taken a turn for the worse.

    As for the rest, take it easy and don't generalize so much. There are plenty of great women out there and you'll find one if you look with softer eyes. :cool:

    Eh, Roger cleans up nice and looks sharp and handsome in a suit, but he's just ok. The thing with Roger and Rafa is neither of them seem to have one ounce of humor in them. Sorry, but they come across as pretty dull people personality wise. So give me Nole, Murray, Tsonga, Tipsy any day.

    I was only joking too, I think both of them have good senses of humour and are funny. There are plenty of examples on Youtube!
    Federer- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3q3gEm4FmI

    Nadal- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIj9QQF5DU8 (my favourite one).

    Apparently there aren't much posters in this thread who've actually seen Fed from close view over here.
    He's charming, friendly and much more good looking than he does on pictures.
    Not the proverbial poster-boy, but most definitely an attractive guy.

    Fed looking like he's 40??? Hahahahahahah.
    You *wish* you'd look that good once you get close to that age!

    Would it be a overgeneralization to say that most of the no-sayers here are men who are a bit insecure about their sexuality?

    Roger does nothing for me but he is undeniably good looking with epic hair.

    Handsome dude


    Personally tho...I wouldn't mind taking Berdych or Janowicz for a spin.....

    all tennis players age badly with all the hours they spend in the sun. Of course, having more melanin in the skin assuages some of that but even Rafa, when he smiles, you see all manner of lines in the face. When djoker smiles you can see all kinds of crows feet lines around his eyes.

    Have you had some nasty women in your life? Please don't lump us all in with whatever ladies have done a number on you. If other women are like me, we don't actually have a set-in-stone type when it comes to men. There are men who most would consider ugly that I find attractive, men who most consider gorgeous that don't do anything for me, and everything in between. As I've said in other posts here, I'm 35 so I've hit that age where it doesn't take much to catch my eye :)

    Uhh I think people don't know what 40 looks like because Federer these days definitely looks older than a normal 30 year old to me. 40 isn't supposed to be fully grey with wrinkles everywhere like John McEnroe and Mugs Wilander who both took a lot of drugs and lived unhealthy. They looked 60 when they were in their 40's.

    Worst aging ever? He was like 49 when this picture was taken...

    women love him; they really do find him attractive. most of the women* i know like him. he's tall, dark, broad shoulders and has prestige.

    rafa's appeal is more sexual though. the girls (and some guys) really light up when they see him. they can't help it, it's a physical thing.


    * across the board in terms of age and social class.

    oh, and women like rugged skin and such. guys go for baby smooth skin and youth, but most women like a bit of rough. they don't go for perfection.

    rafa and roger's lines won't hold them back in terms of appeal...

    Last I checked this was a thread about Fed's female following, not the gay following? Like everything else it's personal preference, I'm sure there are women who find him attractive, and women who don't just as there are for Nadal, Djokovic, Murray or any other player.

    In other news it's nice to see that NSK is back from his brief hiatus.
