In "unintentionally funny" kind of way, yes Nadal is funny af. Otherwise not even remotely. The dude is as serious as a heart attack. Not one even slightly lighthearted sentence in his autobiography that I just completed reading.

Roger on the other hand is goofy all his life (long before his "dad" status). And even Djokovic (at least in the past) made some effort to be a bit of a funny man. Then someone told him to tone it down in order to make money. Bad advice. The old Djoko would have been far more popular if he had stayed true to himself.

Yes, I laugh at him all the time - what he wears, his tics between points, irrational exuberance after winning random points, his return position at the fence8-B

None of them should ever be described as funny. They have their occasional moments, but that's bound to happen when you're in the spotlight 24/7.

That outfit is perfectly ridiculous. Five piece get-up in order to go play a tennis match. Just hilariously embarrassing.

It's hard to disagree. I think he looks like the Tuk-tuk driver on a very expensive hotel in Bangkok.

The kit underneath was nice, though, as opposed to Rafa's AO18 Baby Shower edition which is the worst ever :laughing:

I gotta agree. From the hilarious respones he comes up with on the fly to his lively facial expressions, he's probably made me laugh the most. I was recently rewatching some matches from the LC 2017 and Rafa's reactions had me loling.

Me and my wife at the time were on a holiday in Thailand, going to Koh Lanta and Koh Phi-Phi, but stayed two nights in what turned out to be a very fashionable hotel i Bangkok before going on. There are thousands of dirty tuk-tuks there, but in front of our hotel there was a shiny white tuk-tuk with a driver in a white suit and an oversized white captain's hat. His only job was to drive the hotel's guests out to the main road (100 m walk) where you could get other transportation. We couldn't stop laughing and imagined he would get bullied a lot by the other tuk-tuk drivers :D

Bangkok is an incredible place.

Djokovic was really just a funny guy who happened to be good at tennis back then. Wasn't he the one who started those player imitations or was it Roddick?
Anyways he was a lot more likeable back then, personality wise.

If people here could understand Spanish they would have a completely different opinion about Rafa, he express himself like a erudite in his native language lol
You have to take in account that most of the video is Rafa struggling with his English trying to translate word by word from Esp to Eng. Because I can tell you that Nadal speaking Spanish is not that funny as many think.
However, he does have his funny moments in Spanish:

If Nadal was a humorous movie character he would be Inspector Clouseau.

Djokovic would be Hans Gruber.

Federer would be Roger Thornhill.

All seem to have a good sense of humor. I wouldn’t call any of them funny. Federer some interviews where he can’t stop laughing was pretty funny but thats about it.
Nole, eh like he tried to hard sometimes. Years ago when he imitated Sharapova, kind of funny and entertaining at the time.
Nadal I do find unintentionally funny like the witty comments and raised eyebrow in interviews, personally find it hilarious for some reason.

Roger is good with sarcastic witty remarks though he needs to be in, like, a special mood for that. You can tell that typically he's not the guy to crack jokes but the one who finds everything funny :D

None of them is particularly funny but Djokovic tries more than the other two so he's mathematically funny more often. Fedal tend to have an easier time making people laugh as they're way more loved, which leads to more empathetic laughters.
