Was Milos Raonic the first guy to play James Bond on screen?

    I don't know about Milos Raonic, but Rafael Nadal makes an even better James Bond than any of the actors who played him-

    I agree, Nadal doesn't have much of a resemblance (face-wise) to the previous Bond actors, but that doesn't mean he's not better at portraying Bond than they are.

    Because I'm saying that Nadal plays a better James Bond than Milos Raonic, perfectly relevant to the topic.

    Also, those pictures (apart from the last one) were taken in Monte Carlo, nothing to do with the World Tour Finals.

    Don't think those pictures help your argument. Nadal looks uncomfortable and not natural in his tux. Noone would confuse him with James Bond.

    I would pay to watch Rafa as James Bond. I might even chuckle a little.

    Me name ees Bond no? Hyems Bond.

    James Bond has a Swiss mother and a Scottish Father. I'm not quite seeing Rafa pull that one off.

    Oooh - hadn't thought of that. Rafa would be Blofeld, sitting in his Mallorcan Island cum Missile Base, stroking his white cat.

    Cum een Meester Bond - I've been expecting you :)

    I finally understand why 130 loves Rafa's game and despises Federer's. He is obviously blind.

    Nah, that would be Uncle Toni. Rafa would be the cat.

    Xisca could play ***** Galore.

    Nadal looks like he'd play a random henchman.

    Djokovic could pull it off I think. His serious face works well enough. Nadal just looks like a rodent.

    Although these are nice pictures of Rafa, this is a very strange thread.

    Bond is a British agent.

    nadal is no james bond.

    He could play a Keanu Reeves character though. The one in Point Break perhaps.

    No he does not. He always looks uncomfortable in a suit. Federer wears a suit better than any of the top players hands down.

    Federer is way too ugly for the role of Bond. With a face like that he obviously can't pull of the sharp look (Brosnan) and he also can't pull of the gritty look (Craig) as he has no grit.

    I'm sorry for asking this question, but this one is the professional athelete?
